Trump is going to give North Korea whatever they want

Trump needs to get a deal with North Korea. He has staked his foreign policy credibility on his claim that only he can get a deal with Kim Jong Un. He doesn't need any particular deal. It can be almost anything because whatever the deal turns out to be, Trump will call it a "victory."

The North Koreans know all that. So they are going to play hardball and threaten to cancel the talks to get what they want, and Trump will give them what they want to make sure that his dream of a Nobel Prize doesn't go away.
