Read The Joint Statement From President Trump And Kim Jong Un

Trump-Kim talks Fantastic indeed

Trump-Kim talks Fantastic indeed

The summit saw Trump and Kim share a historic handshake but critics say the love-in between the two was further evidence that Trump was helping legitimise the North Korean leader on the world stage.

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations" while the USA would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea.

The war games are very expensive, we pay for a big majority of them. The drills help keep USA forces at a state of readiness in one of the world's most tense flashpoints. "But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money, plus I think it's very provocative", Mr Trump said.

Trump first announced there would be "a signing" shortly after midday, during a stroll with Kim around the hotel grounds.

Conservative House Republicans were unrepentant in their praise for the president for engaging with North Korea, a sharp reversal from many of their views on similar negotiations between President Barack Obama's Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran. Neither the US nor the South Korean government would confirm that the Trump administration warned President Moon Jae-in ahead of time about the decision to suspend exercises. "We got to know each other well in a very confined period of time", he said.

"I think he loved it", Trump said, referring to Kim, adding that he gave the North Koreans their own copy.

The meeting was the first time a sitting U.S. president has met North Korea's leader.

Donald Trump: Justin Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'
John McCain who responded with a very different message for USA allies: "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't". The former Conservative prime minister said that while he believes the dispute is serious, that doesn't make it "lethal".

In a joint declaration on Tuesday, the United States committed to providing security guarantees to its old enemy while North Korea "commits to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula". Will this leader choose to advance his country and be part of a new world? The document lacked specifics on the timeline or nature of denuclearization, however. The US forces in South Korea, meanwhile, told Stars and Stripes magazine that it had not received updated guidance on cessation of training exercises, and "will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance". He added that he hoped to withdraw USA troops from South Korea at some point - further undermining the long alliance.

Trump will also speak with reporters in Singapore before departing for home.

Xi's pre-summit meetings with Kim helped restore ties that had been frosty since both leaders took power around the same time about six years ago.

"That was done at the highest level of future development", Trump said of his pitch video. "Anybody that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough".

Breaking down in tears during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rodman - known as "The Worm" in his National Basketball Association heyday - recalled, "I said the door would open".
