Trump, Kim sign 'very important' document

Trump Predicts 'Tremendous Success' In Summit With Kim Kim Jong Un will announce its plans on dismantling other missile sites: Donald Trump

A quick answer: Probably not.

The agreement signed Tuesday by Trump and Kim also included provisions for future negotiations, hinting at the possibility of more meetings between the US and North Korean leaders.

"We had a historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind and we are about to sign the historic document", Kim said through a translator.

"Not all of that work appeared in the final document".

And now here we are, talking seriously about not-nuking each other.

So while those of us in the press cabin tried to sleep, the president continued to make calls and fire off tweets, travelling back in time to make the most of his historic day.

Trump told reporters Tuesday that he trusts Kim, but that North Korea's denuclearization process will be thoroughly vetted and that the U.S.

"We are working with the regional countries on getting this (deal) going". "Now look, with all of that being said, the answer is yes" - referring to Baier's query about Kim having done bad things.

Trump made a big concession to North Korea by suspending joint military drills with South Korea.

THE FACTS: He's wrong in suggesting his administration is the first to start on denuclearization with North Korea.

North Korea typically has no kind words for Donald Trump.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe spoke to Donald Trump after the summit, saying there was "great meaning in Chairman Kim's clearly confirming to President Trump the complete denuclearisation". The military exercises, which often involve US military ships and planes, have always been a point of contention with the Koreans.

Without military drills, the U.S. forces in South Korea would wither and fail to meet readiness standards.

Independent experts say the North could have enough fissile material for between about a dozen and 60 nuclear bombs.

"Why did South Korea and the US form an alliance and stage military drills before the nuclear crisis flared?"

Kim, according to North Korean media, said "to achieve peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and realize its denuclearization", North Korea and the United States "should commit themselves to refraining from antagonizing with each other". But the White House "tried to fill in the blanks", he said, and in Kimmel Live's imagining, Trump gave away a comically large number of things.

Trump then pivoted to fondness for China's leader. A year ago it tested long-range missiles that could reach the USA mainland, although it remains unclear if it has mastered the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead that could re-enter the atmosphere and hit its target. And so do the North Koreans.

President Trump speaks out about the summit to Bret Baier. Moon held talks with Kim in April at which Kim agreed to work toward "complete denuclearization".

U Sung Tak, 79, said the future was looking "bright" because Kim was "leading the world's political trend on the Korean peninsula, steering the wheel of history". "I'm for the United States", Trump clarified.

Sen. Lindsey Graham does not have an issue with halting joint military exercises between the USA and South Korea while discussions with North Korea continue.

Trump acknowledged to Stephanopoulos that the path ahead remained foggy. The talks also covered steps to be taken from now on.
