Ahead of North Korea Summit, President Trump Spurns U.S. Allies

On Tuesday, one of the most widely anticipated diplomatic events in recent history will be carried out at an island resort in Singapore, a summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. The Takeaway speaks with the leader of Secretary Albright's North Korea delegation when she paid a visit to the hermetic country. Plus, we review the new Supreme Court decision to uphold Ohio's voter purge law; the recent decision by I.C.E. to house 1,600 detainees in federal prisons; a surge in assassinations of political candidates in Mexico; the legacy of racism in Russian soccer as the World Cup gets underway; and the Justice Department's secret seizure of a reporters phone and e-mail records.
