Trump boasts North Korea stand-off 'largely solved'

Trump boasts North Korea stand-off 'largely solved'

Trump was asked during a Fox News Channel interview outside the West Wing if he would invite Kim to the White House.

President Donald Trump admires how North Korean President Kim Jong-un is deferentially treated by his citizens.

"Chuck Schumer said 'the Summit was what the Texans call all cattle and no hat.' Thank you Chuck, but are you sure you got that right?", Trump wrote on the social messaging site.

The president and Kim agreed to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula" in return for security guarantees from the United States.

Some of Trump's domestic critics condemned his decision to halt what the president calls "war games" with South Korea - using a pejorative term for military drills that U.S. officials have previously rejected.

"This summit marked a new beginning for relations between the United States and North Korea and it opened the path for a future for all Koreans, north and south". Second, Kim and North Korea have emerged from their isolation in as dramatic a fashion as did Mao's China in 1972. It was only last September when Trump tweeted: "Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"

In the early months of Mr Trump's presidency, North Korea's missile tests and sabre-rattling rhetoric from the president - he warned that Mr Kim's regime would be subjected to "fire and fury" if it used nuclear weapons - heightened tensions dramatically. If Mr. Kim complies, the USA president even promised to lift all trade sanctions, a move that will help strengthen North Korea's struggling economy.

China "wants to see the United States sow doubts in the minds of our allies in Japan, South Korea and elsewhere, and this is exactly what President Trump did".

Bannon continued that Trump's meeting with Kim helps to curb Chinese influence in the Far East. "And failed they were", Trump said.

"Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace", the USA president said.

"I mean he's the strong head, don't let anyone think anything different", Trump said in an appearance on Fox & Friends.

US and South Korean forces have trained together for decades, and routinely rehearse everything from beach landings in the North to pre-emptive "decapitation" strikes targeting the North Korean regime.

"Ultimately, if there is to be a successful settlement between the U.S. and (North) Korea, China has to be involved", said Charlie Parton, a former British diplomat in China now working at the UK-based think tank Royal United Services Institute (RUSI). And Trump's eagerness to halt joint military exercises - and remove US troops - undermines USA leverage further.

"Kim is clever. He is using this moment to sanitize his global image", she said. For the last 20 minutes, Trump took questions from the general crowd of White House reporters.

Should Kim give up his nukes, what U.S. President would fly halfway around the world to meet him one-to-one?

As other politicians prepared for Sunday morning talk shows, President Trump circumvented the traditional press circuit once again by tweeting a blue streak on the North Korea summit and, from his perspective, the media's failure to properly acknowledge his successes.
