"Normalizing relations is something that I would expect to do after everything is complete", Trump said.
"I will stress that measures to restrict trade would not serve the interests of any country", Abe said before heading to Washington.
The meeting next week in Singapore will be the first of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting president of the United States.
Trump said that this is something that should have been handled many years ago by other presidents.
"Perhaps after that negotiation, I'll use it again", he added.
US President Donald Trump is due to meet Kim on June 12 in Singapore for a summit called to press Pyongyang to end its nuclear and long-range missile programmes. Still, Trump tried to tamp down expectations. Speaking through a translator, Mr Abe said he hoped it would be a transformational moment for the region. "And things can happen between now and then".
The North Korean leader is a "demon", said Kim Sang-jin, a former South Korean soldier turned anti-North Korea protester.
Trump continues to follow every development closely and is getting daily briefings from his national security team, he said. Leading the American efforts in negotiating with the North Koreans, he said the United States is making progress, inch by inch. And that's something very important toward the ultimate making of a deal, he said.

Sputnik: Why is it that some of Trump's senior staffers seem to be doing everything they can to scupper these talks? "If they don't denuclearize, that will not be acceptable", he told reporters shortly after Abe arrived at theWhite House.
"We can't step through this over years, but rather need to acknowledge it will take some amount of time, that this doesn't happen instantaneously". "Sanctions are extraordinarily powerful".
"The letter was just a greeting", Trump said.

Christopher Hill, the lead USA negotiator with North Korea during the George W. Bush administration, said a summit with the North had always been available to US leaders.
Trump has lately been playing down expectations for the summit by no longer talking about an immediate agreement to eradicate North Korea's nuclear arsenal. Sputnik spoke to American political commentator, Rob Taub, to discuss the implications of Mr. Giuliani's comment. And I think it would be well-received. Trump hosted Abe twice at his private Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
Declaring the summit to be "much more than a photo-op", he predicted "a terrific success or a modified success" when he meets with Kim next Tuesday in Singapore.
Trump's critics say the consequences of failed talks are great, and that it would be hard for the administration to revive diplomatic efforts for sanctions if talks collapse at the summit.
Trump himself said on Thursday that he did not think he had to prepare very much and that "it's about attitude".
