North Korea Summit: Best Donald Trump & Kim Jong-un Memes

North Korea Summit: Best Donald Trump & Kim Jong-un Memes

President Donald Trump started Wednesday morning by touting his biggest accomplishment in diplomacy with North Korea and its leader Kim Jong Un: all but eliminating the threat of nuclear war.

In April 2009, as reported by The New York Times, North Korea launched a rocket that it claimed was to propel a satellite into space, but which was viewed by much of the world as edging towards shooting another nuclear warhead.

"While I am glad the president and Kim Jong Un were able to meet, it is hard to determine what of concrete nature has occurred", Corker said in a statement.

Trump struck an optimistic tone about his talks with Kim.

"We're not going to be doing the war games as long as we're negotiating in good faith", Mr Trump told Fox News Channel in an interview in Singapore after the summit.

But there were worries, especially in Tokyo and Seoul, which both have huge United States military presences, about Mr Trump agreeing to halt USA military exercises with South Korea, which the North has long claimed were invasion preparations. "My meeting with Chairman Kim was honest, direct and productive".

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said Tuesday that he wants Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to brief senators on the substance of what the two nations discussed, including whether US troops stationed on the Korean Peninsula would remain. Trump is right when he says a resolution to the problem should have been accomplished by previous administrations, they failed to do so using the conventional approaches.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived at Osan Air Base south of Seoul from Singapore early Wednesday evening.

KCNA also mentioned the end of U.S.

During his return, Trump spoke with South Korean Prime Minister Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Pompeo, the former Central Intelligence Agency director, then plans to fly to Beijing to update the Chinese government on the talks.

At the same time, it's also disturbingly clear that Trump himself has no idea what that something else should be - just what it should look like on TV.

Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterized by bloodshed and threats.

"USFK has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises - to include this fall's schedule Ulchi Freedom Guardian", US Forces in Korea's Lieutenant-Colonel Jennifer Lovett said in a statement.

"South Korea joint military exercises, which the DPRK side regards as provocation, over a period of good-will dialogue between the DPRK and the US, offer security guarantees to the DPRK and lift sanctions against it along with advance in improving the mutual relationship through dialogue and negotiation", the North Korean report read, referring to the country by the acronym for its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Even worse, Trump surprised South Korea and even other USA officials when he appeared to announce a US concession that was never mentioned publicly when he was with Kim: the suspension of the U.S. "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

That statement, which Trump touted as "very comprehensive", was scant on details, including specific actions and a timeline for the North relinquishing its nuclear arsenal.

At their meeting in Singapore, Mr. Kim pledged the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula, although the agreement lacks details of how that could be achieved.

That could be good news for Tehran, Haaretz's Zvi Bar'el writes: "If a paper like the one Trump and Kim signed had been signed by Iran, not only would Israel have gone insane; Europe also would deem it remiss in failing to meet the necessary minimum to reduce the Iranian threat".

Hay also reported that South Korea is "caught by surprise" at Trump's decision to halt the military exercises between the two allies.

"One: North Korea completed its nuclear deterrence, which finally gave North Korea the leverage it needed to bring the U.S. to the table and also be able to negotiate on an equal footing", Lee told Loud & Clear.

Trump declared he and Kim had developed "a very special bond", and Kim said the leaders had "decided to leave the past behind" and promised, "The world will see a major change". Beijing is also hoping to convince Seoul to remove a sophisticated USA missile defence system that China sees as a threat to its security. The next military exercise is scheduled for August. Still, others might say let's wait until there's an actual peace deal before we start doling out the accolades.

In Japan, the prospect of canceled U.S. -South Korean drills was met with concern.

"It is up to the US and South Korea to decide about their joint exercises".

"The liberals want you to think that Trump is in over his head, but the president is not out of his depth", Klepper said.
