Donald Trump says North Korea no longer a nuclear threat: ‘sleep well!’

President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday, but the historic meeting was just the first step toward diplomacy, according to some experts.

Seth Meyers gave the "Closer Look" treatment to the monumental meeting, paying particular attention to Trump and Kim's ill-fitting suits. The two signed a four-point joint statement. The president would not elaborate on these hazy measures of time. -South Korea war games as part of the negotiations with Kim.

Hay also reported that South Korea is "caught by surprise" at Trump's decision to halt the military exercises between the two allies.

Trump also said he hopes the thaw in relations with North Korea will eventually allow him to withdraw US troops from the peninsula.

The North suggested Wednesday that Trump had moved away from his demand for complete denuclearization before US sanctions on the long-isolated country are removed.

As Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said Tuesday in defense of the summit on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt's show (in one of those gaffes in which a politician actually tells the truth), if you have nuclear weapons, you should be given a meeting with the US president.

"I have no idea" whether Trump secured anything of substance, Senator Corker, the retiring chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said.

Instead, it merely says, "Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

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. "The V matters", he told reporters. "The lethal envelope of advanced air-defense systems continues to grow against our 4th Generation aircraft", General Mark Welsh, the former chief of staff for the U.S. Air Force, said in a statement.

It would allow the Fed to be less choreographed and more flexible in cutting or raising rates as economic conditions warrant. Powell also serves as Chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee, the System's principal monetary policymaking body.

Several topics were discussed Tuesday during Trump and Kim's summit, including the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."

Kim was quoted as saying that if the US takes "genuine measures for building trust", then the North can reciprocate in a "commensurate" fashion - suggesting that the USA will have to make concessions before North Korea.

Ultimately, that may end up being the only option that the U.S. has short of war.

Warmbier's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier said they appreciated Trump's comments.

"Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea", he continued.

It also appeared that China knew about the plan to suspend the joint activity before the Pentagon and South Korean military did, as Geng said before Trump's announcement that the Chinese dual suspension proposal "is right and has been realised".

Trump agreed to end joint U.S. During his press conference in Singapore, he turned to Pompeo when asked if there was a transcript. Trump then invited Kim, a brutal dictator who has carried out horrendous atrocities against North Korean citizens and had his own half-brother killed, to the White House. "They did not record it". "I think nobody can doubt the extremely unique and important role China has played". I wish there were. "They have actually detailed notes I imagine".

The president had said earlier he would turn around and fly home if he detected at the outset that Mr. Kim wasn't serious about "de-nuking". Any notes will be turned into a Memorandum of Conversation, possibly just a summary of the conversation, and provided to the National Archives.
