If the Singapore meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un had been a zero-sum game, then Trump definitely lost.

Trump later told reporters that he was joking, stating how "you don't understand sarcasm". And he did avoid donning a big smile when he first met and shook hands with Kim. Kim asked for Russia's full support in future negotiations on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"Denuclearization is great, but we also have to concern ourselves with what the cyber capabilities are, so we can make sure that doesn't happen to our businesses and other assets in the United States", Lynton said.

It would be good for the world if the president is right when he tweets, "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea". Nevertheless, how the real world will work after the summit remains to be seen. If we did, millions of people would have been killed, he said.

Trump on Wednesday hailed his meeting with Kim as having removed the North Korean nuclear threat, but Harris told the panel "I think we must continue to worry about the nuclear threat". The joint agreement signed with much fanfare included no specific or new commitment for the North to relinquish its nuclear weapons, and Trump nearly offhandedly announced that military exercises between the United States and South Korea would end, and that he would like to see the eventual withdrawal of 28,000 U.S. troops on the peninsula. "Kim Jong Un has proved to be a pretty ruthless leader in North Korea, and I'm not sure this sort of speed dating of a 45-minute one-on-one meeting ... would suggest that there's nothing to be concerned about", he said. She said the meeting between the U.S. and North Korea was significant but said the talks also carried risks of relations deteriorating if they fall through.

President Donald Trump raised eyebrows again during the course of praising North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un Friday morning. A North Korean general saluted Trump, and the president saluted him in return. The administration grabbed headlines by producing a propaganda-esque, movie trailer-style video directed at North Korea that paints Trump and Kim as two leaders on the cusp of greatness.

On Wednesday the USA military was looking at ways to ensure American forces in South Korea could still be fully trained and ready.

"We have a very good relationship with North Korea".

Ultimately, China wishes for seven 'no's regarding nuclearisation of the Korean peninsula: no test, no production, no weapons, no storage, no passage, no deployment and no use. "If there's a chance at peace, if there's a chance to end the frightful threat of nuclear conflict, then we must pursue it at all costs". "I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement".

No matter. That's what Trump is heading for, and by the time he gets there he will undoubtedly think that it was his goal all along. Chol saluted. Trump saluted back. "And failed they were", Trump said.

The summit also made a clean break from the failed approaches of past USA administrations, he said.
