How anti-Trump hysteria helps the president on North Korea

Pompeo is scheduled to fly to Beijing to meet his Chinese counterpart after the meetings in Seoul. The two leaders met on Tuesday and signing a brief declaration on denuclearization and reducing tensions. -South Korea military exercises, making clear to the North Korean leader that those exercises will resume if Pyongyang negotiates in bad faith. Trump insisted that strong verification of denuclearization would be included in a final agreement, saying it was a detail his team would begin sorting out with the North Koreans next week.

Trump said, 'We're flying planes in from Guam, we're bombing empty mountains for practice.

The declaration signed at the end of the summit said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations", while the USA would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea.

"Absolutely. you used the term major, major disarmament, something like that?"

"You couldn't have a [more] stark difference between the last 25 years of handling this problem and the last 500 days", Gorka said.

His remarks came as lawmakers, analysts and much of the media coverage of the summit have raised questions about what was achieved there, at least as reflected in the brief joint statement.

"It's in the statement.

I suppose you could argue semantics, but let me assure you that it's in the document", Pompeo said on Wednesday.

"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", Trump tweeted early Wednesday.

Koichi Hagiuda, executive acting secretary-general of the ruling party, said he heard from Abe that Kim did not repeat North Korea's claim that the issue involving Japanese citizens abducted by North Korean agents in the 1970s and 1980s had been resolved.

In his post-summit press conference, Trump made the surprise announcement that the United States would halt joint military exercises with its security ally Seoul - a concession Pyongyang has sought for decades.

"It might work. After three minutes of being touched and felt by Trump, Kim Jong-un is just going to go, 'Fine, fine, take the nukes".

A government source familiar with the matter told Reuters that Japanese officials planned to discuss the summit meeting with North Korean officials at an global conference on Northeast Asian security to be held in Mongolia on Thursday and Friday.

Pompeo said Trump was alluding to the fact that it was the first time a sitting US president had met with Kim, adding that both leaders had a "blunt conversation" about the need for the communist state to rejoin the world community.

A pair of Senate Democrats introduced a bill Wednesday that would prevent President Donald Trump from unilaterally drawing down the American troop presence on the Korean peninsula - not necessarily because he's said he will, but because they don't want to rely on his word that he won't. Trump agreed to halt U.S. Trump's announcement appeared to catch the Pentagon and officials in Seoul off guard, and some South Koreans were alarmed.

Logically, Trump should receive no credit if you believe he brought us to the brink of war with North Korea and then pulled us back.
