Trump continues to praise himself for North Korea summit

President Donald Trump has arrived back in Washington from his historic nuclear summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", he tweeted. In the past, state media has referred to him as a "psychopath" and a "lunatic," while Kim Jong Un has called him a "dotard". But there have been slight differences in recent comments among senior US officials as to whether that means North Korea must first complete denuclearization - and have it verified - or if some goodwill steps would be enough.

Both Trump and Kim got things they want. This is the furthest Kim is known to have traveled since he came to power in 2011 and there has never previously been a meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader.

During the meeting, Mr Jong-un promised he would denuclearise North Korea, which if followed through would defuse a potential nuclear war and a global security threat.

But there were worries, especially in Tokyo and Seoul, which both have huge US military presences, about Trump agreeing to halt USA military exercises with South Korea, which the North has long claimed were invasion preparations.

In Pyongyang, the North Korean autocrat woke up to state media's enthusiastic claims of a victorious meeting with the USA president; photos of him standing side-by-side with Trump on the world stage were splashed across newspapers.

But he said that was no longer the case, and everyone can "sleep well tonight". -South Korea military exercises, handing North Korea a win on one of its longtime policy goals. No details of what those steps would be were given.

According to the North's official KCNA news agency, the two leaders accepted invitations to visit each other's countries, so more "historic" summits could also be in the offing.

If he was forced to negotiate by US pressure, it certainly wasn't obvious. And we can't make conceptions until we get action from North Korea.

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the USA and South Korea", Onodera was quoted as saying.

China Supports Iran Nuclear Deal in Talks with Iranian Leader
The bloc includes China, Russia along with four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan. In this regard, the United States' attempts to impose its own policies on others is a growing danger.

No sitting United States and North Korean leaders have visited each other's countries since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. At his news conference, Trump said the war games were expensive, provocative and inappropriate.

"We welcome the outcomes", the defense spokesman said. They probably now believe, correctly, that Trump used tough talk to bring Kim to the table.

"It was a good meeting", said Yuri Kim as she stood outside the South Korean consulate in Koreatown, holding her two-year-old son in her arms.

The Pentagon said Tuesday it was consulting with the White House and others, but was silent on whether the August exercise would proceed.

The move, long requested by Pyongyang, has been seen as a major concession to North Korea and has left one former South Korean military leader "speechless".

Photographs of Trump and Kim Jong Un crowded the first half of Wednesday's six-page Rodong Sinmun, the pair in various situations at the summit venue in Singapore. News of the summit itself had not yet been reported in the North as of late Tuesday night. Otto did not die in vain.

Most of us realize that the hysterical anti-Trump resistance has difficulty keeping its talking points straight.

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". Whether Trump's claim that Kim is devoted to the process remains to be seen. It's also unclear what significant changes could occur now that they seem to be moving toward more peaceful relations.

It appears even Trump was unclear on whether there was any record of his 40-minute talk with Kim.
