I showed my loyalty and trustworthiness to this country. "I think he's going to start now", he said.

"The President's comments [were] very positive and the Statement touches on a new relationship with North Korea, and end to the Korean War, complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and recovering POW/MIA remains - all positive commitments", he said.

Trump said verification processes had been discussed at the summit, and that Kim understood it would involve accepting large numbers of US and worldwide personnel. "And only a very few will make decisions or take actions to renew their homeland, or change the course of history".

The cancellation is seen as a significant concession to North Korea.

"The past doesn't have to be the future", the narrator said.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim - who traded vicious insults previous year - gripped each other's hands in front of United States and North Korean flags.

But in the Trump film, the destruction rewound itself.

"The North Koreans are freezing their ICBM and nuclear tests, and the Americans are freezing our military exercises with the South Koreans".

Openly wiping away tears from beneath a large pair of black sunglasses, Rodman, who arrived in Singapore overnight, appeared overcome with emotion during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo Tuesday, as Kim and Trump prepared to sit down for talks in the Asian city-state.

Kim summit 'may not have happened without Otto Warmbier'
Warmbier said. "Very few people at that age - you can take one out of 10,000 - probably couldn't do it". We know where it is because of the heat.' It's incredible the equipment we have, to be honest with you.

Tesla has not made an annual profit in its 15 years of doing business, and it has posted only two quarterly net profits. Tesla shares rose 2.5 percent to $340.34 in afternoon trading, after reaching as high as $354.97 around noon.

Donald Trump: Death of Otto Warmbier Led to North Korea Summit
But a lot of people started to focus in what was going on, including North Korea. "Well, he is very talented", Trump replied. In April, the parents of Otto Warmbier sued the Pyongyang regime for the alleged torture and murder of their son.

"The world will see a major change", he continued through a translator.

"In what way?" Trump asked.

It may have been a safer move than taking his usual aircraft, a Soviet-made Ilyushin-62 dubbed Air Force Un - although his sister and close aide Kim Yo Jong reportedly used it to reach the city-state.

The former Chicago Bulls star said he tried talking to former US President Barack Obama. "I think he loved it", the United States president added during the press conference, where the video was broadcast on big screens.

Kim capped months of a diplomatic charm offensive by posing for a public selfie for the first time - a far cry from his usually carefully controlled image. "The question is, will Trump have the fortitude to admit he was duped?" "No, I'm not concerned at all. We can use that video for other countries".

Perhaps most importantly, Trump did not succeed in getting Kim to clarify his definition of "denuclearization".

But as the world was glued to the unprecedented meeting, we also learned that Kim likes a selfie and that Trump is really, really proud of "The Beast", his armoured vehicle. "We didn't need it, because we had it on cassette, uh, an iPad. Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go to", tweeted Trump. I mean, that could very well be the future. And the other alternative is just not a very good alternative. Trump warmly touched Kim's arm during the handshake. "But that's not part of the equation right now", Mr. Trump said. "I told everybody that "the door will open", he recalled. You may want to do a much smaller version. "They assume everything translates 100%", he said. Beyond the impact on both leaders' political fortunes, the summit could shape the fate of countless people - the citizens of impoverished North Korea, the tens of millions living in the shadow of the North's nuclear threat, and millions more worldwide.

"I explained it", he said.
