Word does get around, however, and it is quite likely that the prospect of a meeting between Kim and Trump is on the public's radar.
"I have a clear objective, but I have to say - it's going to be something that will always be spur of the moment", Trump said.
Trump and Kim are set to meet on Tuesday at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa for talks which could see North Korea dismantle its nuclear arsenal in return for economic help and security guarantees.
On Sunday, as the worldwide media swarmed Singapore and Kim arrived on a special Air China flight, just hours before Trump, there was still no word.
A jet carrying Kim had landed hours earlier, and after shaking hands with the Singapore foreign minister, Kim sped through the city's streets in a massive limousine, two large North Korean flags fluttering on the hood, surrounded by other black vehicles with tinted windows and bound for the luxurious and closely guarded St. Regis Hotel.
Kim and his delegation arrived aboard an Air China 747, according to Singapore'sStraits Times.

"Therefore, when the two sides asked us to host the meeting, we can not say no", PM Lee said.
"And again, I say that with hope that maybe something can happen", said the U.S. President.
"Prime Minister Lee and Chairman Kim discussed Singapore-DPRK relations, developments in the DPRK and regional developments, including the recent positive developments on the Korean Peninsula", the statement reads.
The diplomatic initiatives leading to the summit started in late April when Kim met South Korean President Moon Jae-in and the leaders of the rival states pledged to end hostility and establish peace on the Korean peninsula.
Ms Serena Lim, 58, who is in the property industry, said: "It's an honour that Singapore was chosen to host the summit". The high-anticipated talks had been put at risk, when, on May 24, Trump announced he was canceling the meeting with Kim over Pyongyang's hostile rhetoric. The United States stations 28,500 troops in South Korea, a legacy of the Korean War.
Last year, the North made one of the biggest breakthroughs in its missile and nuclear weapons programs - which it says it needs to defend against the risk of a US invasion - when it announced that it had "completed" its state nuclear program after testing a missile capable of striking most, if not all, of the continental U.S.
Trump has expressed keenness about his summit with Kim and called it a "one-time opportunity".
There are also signs that South Korea, China and Russian Federation are preparing to increase economic ties with North Korea, should a nuclear deal be reached.
