face just days away, the art of the deal president is trying to manage expectations for his most important deal yet. >> start at least a dialogue. as a deal person i have done very well with deals. i'd like to accomplish more than that. but at a minimum, i do believe, at least we'll have met each other and we will have seen each other, and hopefully we would have liked each other. >> reporter: the president shutting down questions whether his meeting with kim, a dictator accused of numerous human rights violations, might amount to just a photo-op? >> everyone said, the haters, they say, oh, you're giving him a meeting, give me a break, okay, there's nothing -- it's never been done before. you know, it's never been done before. >> reporter: the president calling the summit a mission of peace, but warned this historic opportunity won't come again. >> it's a one-time shot, and i think it will work out very well.
>> you heard the president there, a one-time shot, he says. martha joins us from singapore. martha, with both leaders arriving tomorrow, you're already seeing tough security measures in place? >> reporter: really some incredible security measures here, cecilia, as you can imagine for both leaders. but what's more incredible is, when you think about the fact that just six months ago both these leaders were threatening to annihilate each other. >> they have come a long way. martha leads us off tonight , thank you. and we'll have much more on this historic meeting. george stephanopoulos hosts "this week" from singapore in the morning and in the evening, dade muir brings us this broadcast, "world news tonight" from the summit. as we reported president trump did depart the g7 early, leaving behind festering tensions with our closest allies. that rift on full display in this photo. the president, his arms crossed, seated, surrounded by the world leaders that's he now feuding with. he said their relationship is a solid 10, but is it really? abc's david wright is following

us. >> so i don't blame them, i blame our leaders. >> reporter: trump also repeated his call for the world's leading industrial nations to give russia a seat at the table. >> some people like the idea of bringing russia back in. this used to be the g8, not the g7, and something happened a while ago. >> reporter: what happened was that in 2014, russian troops stormed into crimea, illegally annexing it from ukraine. >> obama can say all he wants but he allowed russia to take crimea. i may have had a much different attitude. >> reporter: trump suggested that it's pointless to keep punishing russia. an idea that most g7 leaders strongly reject. but trump dismisses any suggestion his approach is causing friction with our closest allies. >> angela and emmanuel and justin, i would say the relationship is a 10. >> reporter: in the end, the president could not get on that plane fast enough.
