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

President Donald Trump started Wednesday morning by touting his biggest accomplishment in diplomacy with North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un: all but eliminating the threat of nuclear war.

"They're going to get rid of their nuclear weapons", Trump said.

The joint statement released Tuesday was scant on the details, leaving the agreement between Trump and Kim vague.

Jimmy Kimmel opened his "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" monologue on Tuesday night by laying into President Trump over his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

But the United States president trumpeted the outcome as a "deal" with North Korea and vowed there would be "no more rocket launches, nuclear testing or research!"

He told reporters that "one should heavily discount some things that are written in other places - including from some of your colleagues!" He said that the concepts were encompassed within the word "complete".

Asked how he is able to trust the North Korean dictator, who has been accused of grave human rights abuses and the execution of political opponents, Trump said, "I'm given what I'm given, okay?"

Taking a break from talks on denuclearization, the USA president made a decision to give his North Korean counterpart a peek into the vehicle created to protect against threats ranging from gunfire to biological and chemical attacks. But it "all depends on whether North Korea is serious about denuclearization".

He added that it would be impossible to verify completely whether North Korea completely denuclearized. "The country has an extensive network of sites and underground tunnels that can be used to hide material". "So he's a very smart guy, he's a great negotiator, but I think we understand each other".

WATCH: Was the North Korea summit a success or a fail?

"Oh we know that's what you do", Stephen Colbert shot back in a comment on The Late Show.

North Korea has been an isolated nation since it first divided from South Korea after the end of World War II in 1945. He said that Trump "made it very clear" that the suspension would only last while "good faith negotiations" continued.

As Trump acknowledged that denuclearization would not be accomplished overnight, the North suggested Wednesday that Trump had moved away from his demand for complete denuclearization before USA sanctions on the long-isolated country are removed.

Pompeo's remarks follow Trump's Trump's tweets Wednesday, after returning from the summit.

But in characteristically bullish tweets, Mr Trump said everyone "can now feel much safer than the day I took office" and people could "sleep well tonight!" According to the Washington Post, North Korea's definition of "denuclearization" is different from Trump's.

"High expectations were met by low results", said Nam Sung-wook, a North Korea expert at Seoul's Korea University.

"Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things", Mr. Trump said. "I hate to appear a businessman, but I kept saying, what's it costing?"

"All of that points to a new era of the relationship between the United States and North Korea", Tina Park, vice president of the NATO Association of Canada, told Global News. "And the issue is now, where do we go from here - whether we can maintain momentum from the summit and start putting flesh on those bones".
