Trump on Kim: Without exchange of insults 'we wouldn't have been here'

Trump on Kim: Without exchange of insults 'we wouldn't have been here'

Mr Trump said Mr Kim and other senior members of the North Korean delegation huddled around an iPad to watch the video, which looked like it has been made using generic stock images and news clips.

The North's media also said that ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons is dependent on Washington and Pyongyang ceasing moves that antagonise each other.

President Donald Trump, the former reality television star with a knack for theatrics, tried a dose of Hollywood drama as he sought to sway North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their historic summit.

On nuclear weapons, Mr Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

"I really believe otherwise I wouldn't be doing this", Trump said of the summit.

The historic summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un resulted in an understanding that Pyongyang would work toward denuclearization.

Hannity had spent part of his show prior to the airing of his taped interview with Trump slamming media coverage of the meeting, specifically CNN's.

"His country does love him", Trump said.

New but familiar characters will make an appearance for the first time and there will be new planets introduced into the game. If indeed a beta is being planned for Anthem , it's likely that it won't arrive until late 2018, or perhaps even early 2019.

Hyun Lee, an activist with the Solidarity Committee for Democracy and Peace in Korea and writer at ZoomInKorea.org, joins Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear to discuss the summit and what factors led to its realization.

Observers say the document lacks substance, in particular on how denuclearisation would be achieved.

Setting out the USA position before the summit, Pompeo stressed that the Trump administration would only accept complete denuclearisation of the North.

"We've never given that in because it's been our right, and it means readiness for our troops", he said.

It was not immediately clear what specific progress, if any, had been made in preliminary discussions between United States and North Korean officials.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday. "Anybody that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough".

At a news conference Tuesday following the summit, Trump said that as long as talks with the North were continuing, the US would not carry out the joint exercises - which he called "war games", labeling them "provocative" and saying that the decision would save "a tremendous amount of money". It's going to start very quickly.

"You know, it was sort of interesting because I noticed some of the press.and I'm not even knocking them, because honestly they've been treating me very good on this subject".
