The White House, saying that discussions with North Korea "have moved more quickly than expected," released an updated schedule of President Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, set to kick off in just under 13 hours.

The big things: Trump and Kim will kick off the summit with a 45-minute one-on-one meeting, but things won't last long — Trump is set to leave Singapore at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, just 11 hours after the summit starts

The details:

  • 9:15 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (9:15 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET): "Following the initial greeting, President Trump and Chairman Kim will participate in a one-on-one meeting, with translators only, an expanded bilateral meeting, and a working lunch."
  • 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (10:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. ET): The bilateral meeting will include Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, and National Security Advisor John Bolton.
  • 11:30 a.m. (11:30 p.m. ET) During the working lunch, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Ambassador Sung Kim, and National Security Council Senior Director for Asia Matt Pottinger will join.
  • 4 p.m. (4 a.m. ET) Trump will hold a press conference after the meetings and before his departure at 8 p.m. local time (8 a.m. ET) on Tuesday.

Joe Biden's campaign released his 2019 tax returns on Tuesday, showing that he and his wife, Jill, paid nearly $300,000 in federal taxes last year.

Why it matters: The release, timed just hours before the first presidential debate, comes days after a bombshell New York Times report said that President Trump paid only $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017. Biden's team is hoping to make the tax contrast a sticking point during their showdown.

New York City's coronavirus positivity rate has ticked up to 3.25%, its highest since June, Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference on Tuesday.

Why it matters: The jump — from 1.93% on Monday — came on the first day that public elementary classrooms reopened in the city after months of closures, but guidelines state that all public schools will have to shut if the citywide seven-day positivity rate stays above 3%.
