How anti-Trump hysteria helps the president on North Korea

How anti-Trump hysteria helps the president on North Korea

Pompeo - sharing a podium in Seoul on Thursday with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts - was asked about North Korean claims that US President Donald Trump had committed to a "step-by-step" process and "expressed his intention" to lift sanctions. No details of what those steps would be were given.

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations", while the U.S. would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea. He even has an opportunity to become the peninsular Deng Xiaoping by opening North Korea up economically. The two sides promised to hold follow-up negotiations.

The praise was among Trump's latest adulation for Kim, a dictator who has directed murders of family members and starved his own people, since the two held a summit in Singapore earlier this week to discuss denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

President Trump described his meeting with Kim as a resounding success and in a tweet said, "There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

Following the summit, Trump told reporters during a news conference in Singapore that Kim agreed to "destroying a major missile engine testing site" and that it would be done "very soon", without elaborating further on which testing site or timing.

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.

US President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un sign documents after the summit meeting. "We understand each other", Trump said of Kim in an interview that aired on Fox News Wednesday night.

The president can not be accused of going too far out on a limb here, however: The sanctions against North Korea remain in force.

Asked about his having suggested Russian Federation be let back into the G7, Trump said of that meeting, "We spent about 25% of our time talking about Russian Federation".

U.S. officials said it was unclear what types of training involving US and South Korean troops might cross into Trump's now forbidden zone of "war games". "Nobody thought we were going to have an agreement like that".

Enormous 6.9-inch Huawei Mate 20 Pro leaks
The Bell doesn't say what Huawei device will get the 6.9-inch screen, but the Huawei Mate 20 Pro might be a candidate. Reports also suggest that the new Mate 20's display will be bigger than any smartphones available now in the market.

The footage showcased scenes spanning the hugely-anticipated day, including Kim and Trump's first handshake in front of their national flags.

"I think we have a very good relationship".

The U.S. leader stressed that existing U.S. sanctions will remain in place until North Korean nuclear weapons "are no longer a factor". "President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most unsafe problem".

The state media's representation of the summit and Trump is extremely important because it gives the North Korean population, which has only limited access to other news sources, an idea not just of what's going on but also of how the government expects them to respond.

Most of all, I think they feel relief - relief they would not have felt, and certainly not to the same degree, if the Democrats hadn't drummed up hysteria about an impending war with North Korea. The drills typically begin in March but were delayed until April this year to encourage North Korean participation in the Winter Olympics in the South.

"Otto did not die in vain".

Rounding out Trump's positive appraisal of leaders with a tight grip on power, the president was asked about his relationship with Vladimir Putin and his call to reinstate Russian Federation into the G-7 alliance.

The 42-minute-long program, narrated by North Korea's most famous newscaster, Ri Chun-hee, was broadcast on state-run television Thursday, two days after the historic summit in Singapore and a full day after Kim returned home to his country's capital, Pyongyang.

Trump said he would "absolutely" invite Kim to visit the White House and is open to visiting Pyongyang, as well.

The US president said he had, and did not retract his description of Mr Kim as "talented".
