President Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in historic summit

Donald Trump Kim Jong-un come togther for historic Ten things to know about the Singapore summit

President Donald Trump's joint statement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday provided few specifics and no binding commitments, but likely set in motion a series of events that could unseat the United States as the dominant world power.

"It's important that we don't lose sight of the fact that Kim Jong Un is a butcher and he is a butcher of his own people", Senator John Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican, said Tuesday.

This behaviour was later repeated as Mr Trump waited for Mr Kim to enter the library before following, noted Mr Nair.

Without drills, the USA forces in South Korea will wither, and if peace talks continue, the very rationale for them will erode as well.

Pyongyang in return "commits to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

Trump also said in a separate tweet that North Korea is "no longer" the US' "biggest and most unsafe problem", telling Americans and the rest of the world they can "sleep well tonight!" You can see the problem. "That we must do this quickly".

After first arriving in Seoul on Wednesday, Pompeo said he expected that North Korea would take major steps toward nuclear disarmament during Trump's first term. Mr Trump said he wanted to see USA troops withdraw from the South.

Trump said that after exchanging verbal barbs - with Trump calling Kim "little rocket man" and Kim calling Trump "a dotard" - the two men grew to further respect each other.

Whether the rest of the world likes it or not, Trump now has his historic success. I've done great at it. To show vision and leadership? The way Trump said it yesterday, it sounded like he was open to the idea.

Pompeo also cautioned that the USA would resume "war games" with close ally South Korea if the North stops negotiating in good faith. "Trying to reason with someone like that is like trying to hand feed a shark. If you can do that at 27 years old, that's one in 10,000 that could do that", Trump claimed, continuing to praise Kim.

On the whole, though, if Trump's worldwide diplomacy is theater, it is bad theater. The five-hour summit did give Trump and Kim a chance to express optimism and make of show of their new relationship.

Still, Mr Kim - who at 34 is less than half Mr Trump's age at 71 - responded warmly and graciously to these advances, said founder-director of etiquette consultancy Protocol Academy Teo Ser Lee, who also conducts body language training.

Trump has repeatedly touted his role in bringing the reclusive North Korea to the negotiating table, a feat that he says his predecessors were unable to pull off.

The press briefing came after Pompeo held a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono in Seoul to brief the officials of the outcome of the US-North Korea summit held Tuesday in Singapore. North Korea will of course be demanding that the sanctions be lifted.

Kim said if the United States takes "genuine measures for building trust", he would take "additional goodwill measures of next stage commensurate with them". "We will stay in communication with the U.S.to handle this issue". And that has to do with the military expense and also the trade. -South Korean drills was met with concern.

Bret Baier's first interview with Donald Trump since he became POTUS, was tearing up the TV news turf this evening, after the Fox News political anchor asked POTUS about his just-wrapped summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. That is the style of Trump's global theater: broadcasting friendship to our enemies and belligerently finding fault with our allies. "I mean, I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done". The president added: "That could very well be the future".

"But he's still done some really bad things", Baier said. "This isn't another administration that never got it started and, therefore, never got it done".

In the USA, supporters of President Trump welcomed the outcomes of the summit as a historic breakthrough.
