N Korea media highlights Trump concessions on war games

Bret Baier's first interview with Donald Trump since he became POTUS, was tearing up the TV news turf this evening, after the Fox News political anchor asked POTUS about his just-wrapped summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. A quick answer: Probably not. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., would prevent Trump from withdrawing troops from South Korea unless the secretary of defense says it's in the interest of national security and that it would not undermine the security of allies in the region.

Despite the lack of detail, or binding terms in the joint statement agreed with Kim - which has alarmed a majority of observers of the nuclear standoff - Trump struck a resolutely bullish tone.

Annual military drills between the USA and South Korea have been a major source of tension on the Korean Peninsula.

On Tuesday, Trump and Kim signed a statement outlining four points, including reaffirming a commitment to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

But others said it's a great step forward for peace.

Freezing the regular military exercises with South Korea is a major concession to North Korea that has long claimed the drills were invasion preparations.

"We have big teams ready to go", including experts from the USA and other partners around the world, Pompeo said.

"It said: "The two top leaders gladly accepted each other's invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved DPRK-US relations", it said, referencing the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea". "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea", the president wrote on Twitter shortly after arriving back in Washington.

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.

After a day filled with smiles and handshakes watched around the world, the USA "committed to provide security guarantees" to North Korea. "I'm for the United States".

Several U.S. lawmakers expressed their approval of Trump's meeting with Kim, but said they were skeptical of the U.S. leader's declaration that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat.

USA officials had worked hard to get North Korea to agree to "complete, verifiable and irreversible" disarmament, and said they would not offer any major concessions until it took meaningful steps.

Trump also addressed his announcement that the USA would end military exercises with South Korea.

"You know, we spend probably 25 percent of our time talking about Russian Federation and I said wouldn't it be better if they were here", Trump said.

Russian Federation has encouraged de-escalation talks between the USA and North Korea. -South Korean drills was met with concern.

A summit between the US and Mexico to stop separating families? The source said that, if anything, it's something that came from Chinese President Xi Jinping, who has been very vocal about it and has had direct conversations with Trump about the matter. "It was a period of time where I was saying, what are they doing?" he said.":Every week it seems another missile going up.

To some commentators, Trump's choice of language was a major problem.

Since taking office in May previous year, Moon, a son of North Korean refugees, has sought to take the lead in diplomatic efforts to end the North Korean nuclear standoff, which had been dominated by world powers including the USA and China.

For weeks, Pompeo and other officials have insisted North Korea must agree to "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization" before economic sanctions can be lifted.

A Chinese plane with Kim on board touched down at Pyongyang International Airport at 7 a.m., according to Korean Central Television and Pyongyang Broadcasting Station (PBS).

Pyongyang in return "commits to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

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

Pompeo said he expects the United States would next speak to North Korean officials "fairly quickly after we return to our home countries", adding he was "very confident" that some form of engagement would occur in the next week. "He's an incredible guy", Trump said.
