Will the Singapore summit be the beginning of a new era?

U.S. President Donald Trump brought some early '90s-era Hollywood pizzazz to his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, by showing him a four-minute trailer video laying out the stakes of their historic summit.

Following a one-on-one meeting, both Trump and Kim signed an agreement that included a denuclearization recommitment from North Korea.

"The ultimate goal, shared by the entire global community and as expressed by the United Nations Security Council, remains the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the European Union stated in a press release. He said Iran views Trump and the United States with "great pessimism", saying they are known for "quitting treaties and violating their commitments". Kim has pledged to continue working for the "total de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula" - a welcome goal, but one still shrouded in mystery.

Trump's decision to suspend the war games - which he described as "very expensive" but also "very provocative" given the continuing negotiations - appeared to take South Korea by surprise.

This honestly sounds so fucking nuts that there's no way it could possibly be true but, trust me, I have just checked a whole bunch of different places and it sure seems like it is: Donald Trump had a fake movie trailer made up so he could show Kim Jong-un how sick peace would be.

On June 6, South Korea's Memorial Day, Moon said the return of the remains of missing Americans and the estimated 120,000 South Koreans also missing from the 1950-53 war was a top priority for the Trump-Kim summit.


Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said that North Korea should approach the summit with "awareness".

Speaking briefly, hours after the historic talks in Singapore, Abe also said he was pleased that the U.S. leader had raised the emotive issue of Japanese abducted by Pyongyang.

"I got so many death threats", Rodman said regarding his visits to North Korea and friendship with Kim Jong-un. Today, the NBA Hall of Famer is making headlines for a weird, emotionally-charged interview on CNN in which the man formerly known as "The Worm" weeped with joy while discussing the highly-publicized Trump-Kim Summit.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, said in a statement that the agreement was made in haste, and that "President Trump elevated North Korea to the level of the United States while preserving the regime's status quo".

To begin with, in agreeing to meet personally with Kim at all, Trump elevated Kim's status enormously.

"The fact that we are moving towards a peace agreement and denuclearization on the Korean peninsula - however slow that process might be - is tremendous progress", she said. "The world will see a major change", he said.
