But seriously, folks…
Trump is not expected to leave his Singapore hotel, the Shangri-La, or be seen publicly again for the rest of the day, @ToluseO reports.
Next stop: This epic summit with Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.

Singapore is twelve hours ahead of the US-Eastern time zone, so the next item on the public agenda seems to be a one-on-one meeting between Trump and Kim scheduled for 9am Tuesday local time (9pm Monday from our perspective). Per the Washington Post:
… The two men, joined only by their interpreters, could talk as long as two hours, depending on how well their conversation goes, according to a senior U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private details.
Following their one-on-one time, Trump and Kim will hold an expanded bilateral meeting along with senior members of their delegations, the official said.
The private meeting without aides represents an risky attempt by Trump to build a personal rapport with the young authoritarian leader. Trump has said he believes he will be able to determine quickly whether Kim is serious about taking steps to denuclearize…
Duck Facepalm & Cover Time…
Reporter: How long until you will be able to figure out they are serious about giving up nuclear weapons?
Trump: That’s a good question, within the first minute I’ll know
Trump: My touch, my feel, that’s what I do.
