Gorka, who serves a Fox News contributor and has also written for The Hill, said on Fox Business Network on Wednesday that he and Hannity will be in Singapore to participate in the network's coverage of the historic summit.  

Fox News confirmed that Hannity will host his prime-time show live from Singapore for three days next week. In addition, "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace will air from Singapore this weekend.

Gorka's comment comes about a week before Trump's scheduled meeting with Kim at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore. Trump is reportedly getting daily briefings on North Korea and the White House has said a team of U.S. officials is already in Singapore making final preparations for the summit. 

The summit will cap off what has been at times a contentious process. Trump abruptly canceled the meeting last month over North Korea's "open hostility" toward the U.S. But he announced last week that the meeting would take place as previously scheduled after meeting with North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol in the Oval Office last week. 

Trump tempered expectations when announcing the summit was back on. He said negotiations over a nuclear agreement will likely take multiple sit-down meetings. 

In addition to Gorka and Hannity, a friend of Kim's, Dennis Rodman, may be in Singapore during the summit. The New York Post reported on Tuesday that Rodman said he'd be willing to attend the summit if his presence was deemed necessary. 

Gorka and Hannity are noted allies of Trump's and frequently support the president and his administration on air. In May, it was reported that Hannity and Trump speak on the phone several times a day.
