The summit with Donald Trump comes after Kim Jong-un crossed over to the southern side of the Demilitarised Zone for historic talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April.

"This is history we are living", Huntsman said.

She apologised on her show and on Twitter as critics called her gaffe a "Freudian slip".

The two men are expected to share a handshake before they meet alone with a pair of interpreters for roughly 45 minutes while their entourages wait nearby.

The Fox News anchor Abby Huntsman apologized on Sunday after referring to President Donald Trump as a "dictator" on the air.

'That moment when a Fox & Friends host accidentally calls Trump a dictator and no one even bats an eye'.

As you know on live TV, sometimes you don't always say things perfectly.

She also tweeted a second apology in the afternoon, "I'll never claim to be a flawless human being".

"I'll never claim to be a flawless human being", she wrote.

Let's see how this meeting with the two dictators, *cough* I mean leaders goes.

She apologised for the comment later in the show.

The two leaders are staying at separate hotels during the summit, with Kim opting for the St Regis and President Trump choosing the Shangri La. He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great.

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

Huntsman also tweeted an apology regarding the incident.
