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

Qatar welcomes Trump Kim summit Qatar welcomes Trump Kim summit  13 Jun 2018- 11:07

In a 2014 report, United Nations investigators said that 80,000 to 120,000 people were thought to be held in prison labor camps in North Korea.

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.

Some progressive Democratic lawmakers have offered cautious support for President Donald Trump's outreach to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, thereby parting ways with the party's congressional leaders, who have been unflinching in their criticism. "No more rocket launches, nuclear testing or research!" he also tweeted.

For his own part, Mr. Trump committed to "provide security guarantees" to North Korea.

"We had a historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind", Kim said as he and Trump signed the joint statement, adding, "The world will see a major change".

It appears to be composed nearly entirely of generic stock footage and old news clips, including images of Mr Trump and Mr Kim smiling. "If the U.S.is prepared to make this promise to a brutal dictator, then how trustworthy is he going to be in maintaining a security commitment to his allies?"

"We had a historic meeting, and made a decision to leave the past behind", Kim said.

Later the narrator says "a new world can begin today", as an animated sequence suggests what the impoverished North Korea could look like from space if it was as brightly lit up at night as the far more prosperous South Korea.

Trump expressed his intention to halt U.S.

Trump said the video was played for about eight members of the North Korean delegation, "and I thought they were fascinated by it". He even adopted North Korea's language for the exercises, calling them "very provocative".

Tuesday forecast: Cooler but still hot and humid
The weekend features a more typical summer pattern with highs in the upper 80s and only isolated shower/storm chances on Sunday . Beyond Wednesday , rain chances become minimal as high temperatures creep back into the 90s for the second half of the week.

The documents released Monday show that Ivanka Trump earned $3.9 million from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. Trump have complied with the rules and restrictions as set out by the Office of Government Ethics", he said.


The cancellation is seen as a significant concession to North Korea. Following the G-7, he backed out of a joint communique signed by the six other members, and insulted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "weak" and "dishonest" for criticizing US tariffs. Both leaders had initially planned to leave the country on Wednesday.

Trump had said earlier in Singapore that Otto Warmbier was a "very special person" and that his death had galvanized the administration's determination to deal with North Korea.

Kim's biggest task in the months ahead will most likely be to try to push China, his country's key trading partner, to lift its sanctions and to entice South Korea to start once again offering crucial investment in joint ventures and infrastructure projects.

"It must have been at Kim's insistence to not [include] CVID", a senior South Korean official said, saying any reference to the term would have subjected Pyongyang to much tighter scrutiny. Trump announced that he will order an end to regular "war games" that the United States conducts with ally South Korea, a reference to annual joint military exercises that are an irritant to North Korea. Rodman has built a frienship with North Korea's leader and visited him several times since 2013. "South Korea alliances, then this is the way to launch the process", said Evans Revere, a former US diplomat in South Korea. The U.S. would also stop joint military exercises in South Korea.

Trump rejected the idea that the USA was the loser in the talks. "I hope it's going to be soon", he said Tuesday at an hour-long briefing.

Other analysts said it was still too early to judge whether Kim really had what it took to succeed in leading North Korea into the global community as a normal state.

"U.S. gives up one of our biggest negotiating chips - military exercises", Sen. "But the President said he expected immediate action as a result of the talks".

Instead, he and the U.S. president signed a relatively vague statement agreeing to "work towards complete denuclearisation".

Laura Ingraham, who, like Hume, is also on Fox News, said half of "the elites on the left" would rather go to nuclear war with North Korea than see Trump succeed. Any instability - or alternatively, a deal that leads to a USA -aligned unified Korea - potentially could put American troops on its border. A flurry of media coverage the day Kim arrived in Singapore showed him waving from the door of the specially chartered Air China flight that brought him from Pyongyang.

The first sigh of relief we should all have is that Trump has rejected the idea that we need to have strikes on North Korea and he's open to diplomacy.
