Trump boasts North Korea stand-off 'largely solved'

Dictators like Kim are lucky-they can more easily pull off the appearance of having total respect. In the film, which includes a montage of scenes featuring the two leaders, Trump said his trip was "worth every second", adding, "If there's a chance at peace, if there's a chance to end the terrible threat of nuclear conflict, then we must pursue it at all costs".

Trump said near the end of his talk with Kim, "I said 'Will you do me a favor?"

Kim made a surprise visit to China between March 25 and 28 and met with Xi, marking his first visit overseas and first summit since he came to power in late 2011.

After all the hoopla and pageantry and Trump braggadocio at the Singapore summit, with Kim Jong Un standing alongside the US president in front of thousands of journalists, the North Korean leader came out the victor. He speaks and his people sit up in attention. We need to get used to the idea that two men, who much of the world sees as unhinged, may in fact possess the secret sauce that has caused leader after leader in North Korea and the USA to miss the mark.

A majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump's historic meeting with Kim Jong Un was a success, according to recent polls.

"I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family", Trump told the reporter.

He is also scheduled to meet with senior US officials and lawmakers.

The danger, of course, is that subsequent negotiations will fail, for all these reasons, to bring about the complete and verifiable denuclearization of North Korea that the USA has said must happen soon.

The joint statement, however, contained only a vague commitment to "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula" - terminology favored by Pyongyang and Beijing. He added: "If you're fair, when I came in, people thought we were probably going to war with North Korea". "It does not meet the minimum requirements in terms of what we expected them to do", Ambassador Joseph Y. Yun, the former special USA representative to North Korea, told CNN.

Speaking with AM Joy host Joy Reid, who called Tony Schwartz's description of Trump "scary", the ghostwriter said Trump has mental issues.

The challenge of defending the agreement became apparent earlier this week when Pompeo lashed out at a reporter asking how the US would verify the North's compliance with the deal.

Trump said via Twitter on Sunday that it was his initiative to suspend the military drills, a step North Korea has long sought. The joint military exercises we have conducted annually with South Korea for decades have been declared by Trump to be "war games" and "very provocative" and have been suspended. Then North Korea sent out peace feelers. Kim is being told that he must give up the weapons whose very possession by him are the reason why the world powers are paying him heed.

At his Singapore summit, Trump smartly saluted a North Korean general and then lavished praise on Kim Jong Un as a "strong guy" with a "good personality" and a "great negotiator".

'Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace, ' Trump says in new video.

Already, Mr. Trump's preoccupation with North Korea has diverted attention from Chinese actions that alarm its neighbours, most notably a military buildup on islands that China built in the South China Sea.

"North Korea is an unimaginable country", she said.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry also dismisses the unrealistic timeline Trump offered for the country to comply and even called into question whether "real and substantive change" will "ever happen" at all.
