On Sunday, both President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrived in Singapore for the historic meeting which Trump said was more about attidude than preparation.

"This is history", Huntsman said. Did Abby Huntsman just say "THE MEETING BETWEEN TWO DICTATORS" referring to pres Trump and Kim Jun Un'.

Huntsman, who is the daughter of US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman Jr., later apologised on the show.

Huntsman, whose father is Jon Huntsman, the ambassador to Russian Federation and former Republican presidential candidate, was discussing Trump's arrival with Anthony Scaramucci, one of Trump's short-lived White House communications directors.

"I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity".

Mr Scaramucci did not appear to notice the error, and replied: "Yeah, because Trump is a disruptive risk-taker".

European officials said Trump had tried to water down the language in the draft communique on the WTO and rules-based trade. The president also referenced the cost of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation during his tweets calling for fair trade.

The meeting has been downplayed by Trump in recent days. "I didn't mean to say that, my mistake, I apologize for that".

Another individual wrote: "When Freudian slip is intentional and all pretence of subtlety is openly mocked as diplomacy".

She also apologised on Twitter, writing: "Apologised on the show".

As noted in a Huffington Post report, however, Huntsman's slip up did not go by unnoticed. Other, more critical commenters on websites such as Twitter and Reddit, even suggested that the slip-up was intended, especially considering that Scaramucci seemingly did not react to Huntsman's mistake.

It will be the first-ever meeting between sitting USA and North Korean leaders.
