Trump declares the North Korea nuclear threat is over

Dennis Rodman Breaks Down In Tears Discussing Trump-Kim Summit

At a news conference in Singapore after almost five hours of talks there with Kim, Trump said he "knows for a fact" that North Korea is serious about denuclearization this time and that Kim "wants to do the right thing". The president would not elaborate on these hazy measures of time. -South Korea joint military exercises that take place every year.

In Pyongyang, North Korean state media heralded claims of a victorious meeting with the US president; photos of him standing side-by-side with Trump on the world stage were splashed across newspapers.

Meanwhile, Trump recapped his Tuesday meeting with Kim in a series of tweets in which he boasted about his relationship with Kim, saying he "got along great" with the North Korean leader.

But ordinary North Koreans are not confident improvement in US-North Korea relations will last long, defectors have said.

Highlighting the continued differences in the two countries' views of the denuclearization process, the report also said that they had agreed on a "step-by-step" approach. Trump said the negotiations he has initiated should help improve conditions in the isolated country, which successive United States administrations have targeted for gross human rights violations.

The spokesman for the Kremlin Dmitry Peskov told reporters that the summit had helped to reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula. The US reciprocated and lifted sanctions. Beijing dislikes the USA military presence in South Korea and Japan and has urged Washington to suspend the drills that Pyongyang claims are rehearsals for invasion, in return for the North's halting of nuclear activities.




Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un pledged, in the first ever meeting between leaders of the longtime foes, to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula while Washington committed to providing security guarantees.

Trump and Kim in Singapore on June 12. He met for almost an hour with Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, at the air base before heading by motorcade to Seoul. South Korea was also reportedly shocked by Trump's announcement that he would end American participation in "war games", and the later reversals and reversals of the reversals from administration officials only compounded unease about Trump's goals and competence. The report said Kim told Trump "that it is urgent to make bold decision on halting irritating and hostile military actions against each other". Trump, it added, had expressed his "understanding" of the stance and had conveyed "his intention to halt" the exercises. "That said, I do have some concerns based on some things Donald Trump did and said yesterday and also based on the fact that he is Donald Trump".

On the huge domestic issue of Japanese citizens kidnapped by North Korea decades ago, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe welcomed that Trump had apparently brought it up with Kim, but there was no tangible progress. Bismuth's story (which leads the paper ahead of the news) is accompanied by a picture caption calling on the former president to give his prize to Trump, while Shine wonders how come "pundits didn't tweet cynical or skeptical when Obama won a Nobel for nothing".

A screen grab of a United States made video presented at the Singapore summit. During his press conference in Singapore, he turned to Pompeo when asked if there was a transcript.

Warmbier's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier said they appreciated Trump's comments. "They did not record it".
