Trump continues to praise himself for North Korea summit

13 June 2018

President Trump returned on Wednesday from his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore and issued what would be a remarkable statement - if it were true.

He said many in the media were hoping that the talks would "blow up" and that Kim Jong would "humiliate and embarrass Trump". His army had invaded South Korea but had to retreat - permanently - back across the 38th parallel, even with help from 12 Chinese divisions - a million soldiers - who had crossed the Yalu River into the South, where 400,000 of them remain, killed in action.

Kim and Trump invited each other to their countries and they "gladly" accepted the invitations, sharing the belief that such a meeting would serve as "another important" occasion for improved relations between North Korea and the U.S, the KCNA said.

"It's going to be a long journey and there's a lot of work to be done yet, this is just the beginning of negotiation that could encompass a lot of very complex and hard issues between United States and North Korea that will include numerous major powers in that part of the world", said Dr Peter Brooks, Senior Fellow for National Security Affairs at the Heritage Foundation.

North Korean state media have reported that President Trump made a raft of concessions to Kim Jong Un that were not stated in the two countries' joint statement, following a first-ever meeting of the leaders in Singapore.

Both of those points are true, but again, we wouldn't have been on a path to military confrontation without Trump's reckless Twitter rants in response to Kim's missile tests. The five-hour summit did give Trump and Kim a chance to express optimism and make of show of their new relationship.

While many support the close military co-operation with the USA as a key ally for the security it provides, critics say they are an unnecessary provocation and stand in the way of easing tensions with Pyongyang.

Beijing is Pyongyang's sole major ally and main trading partner, but it has backed the United Nations sanctions. "The V matters", he told reporters.

Moon has championed engagement with the North, and the agreement's language on North Korea's nuclear program was similar to what the leaders of North and South Korea came up with at their own summit in April.

The reported agreement, if confirmed by the U.S., could be considered as a concession by Trump because United States officials had called for the North to take swift disarmament measures before getting major outside concessions and benefits.

"I want to bring our soldiers back home", Trump said, adding that it was "not part of the equation right now".

"President Trump appreciated that an atmosphere of peace and stability was created on the Korean Peninsula and in the region, although distressed with the extreme danger of armed clash only a few months ago, thanks to the proactive peace-loving measures taken by the respected Supreme Leader from the outset of this year", the report said. Trump has said strong verification would be included in a final agreement, with the particulars sorted out by his team with the North Koreans next week.

But while Trump also voiced a desire to eventually bring back US troops as well, he told Baier that the U.S. During his press conference in Singapore, he turned to Pompeo when asked if there was a transcript.

Trump explained he didn't need to record the specifics of his oral agreements with Kim "because he has "one of the great memories of all time" - except when it comes to Stormy Daniels, then it's all a blur", Kimmel said. "They did not record it".

"I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain". I wish there were. "I want to hear the details by phone [from Trump]". "But lots of other places where there were understandings reached, we couldn't reduce them to writing". Any notes will be turned into a Memorandum of Conversation, possibly just a summary of the conversation, and provided to the National Archives.

That discussion between Putin and Trump reportedly happened in summer 2017. "I just have to be honest with you, it's a game, it's a game, and one ought not play games with serious matters like this". "Okay? Okay?" he said.
