How anti-Trump hysteria helps the president on North Korea

Seoul's Defense Ministry said the talks would focus on carrying out agreements from a summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in where they vowed to take materialized steps to reduce military tensions and eliminate the danger of war.

But he added: "Major disarmament".

Despite the lack of detail, or binding terms in the joint statement agreed with Kim - which has alarmed a majority of observers of the nuclear standoff - Trump struck a resolutely bullish tone.

He said he anticipated the next discussion with North Korea would take place "fairly quickly after we return to our home countries. I am equally confident they understand that there will be in-depth verification".

"I suppose we could argue semantics, but let me assure you it's in the document", Pompeo told reporters Wednesday in Seoul.

In an interview with Bret Baier of Fox News as he was leaving Singapore following the denuclearization summit with the North Korean leader, Trump declined to condemn the record of his interlocutor. "And, I'll be honest, we are being taken advantage of by virtually very one of those countries".

On the way forward, Mr Pompeo said, "I don't know exactly what the timing will be for our next conversation with the North Koreans". Mr Trump made clear he was keeping U.S. sanctions in place until he saw evidence of a reduced nuclear threat.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea", Trump wrote. According to the Washington Post, North Korea's definition of "denuclearization" is different from Trump's.

The likelihood of Kim Jong Un launching a first strike against the US, thereby bringing on "fire and fury", was low.

"The President of the US expressed the possibility of suspending the US - South Korea joint military exercises. and, as progress is made from dialogue and negotiations, lifting sanctions against DPRK", state media said. It's possible North Korean officials will seek a firm commitment from the South on stopping its military drills with the United States.

Will Trump demand the same standard in his negotiations with the North Koreans, insisting that Pyongyang offer inspectors historically invasive access to its military facilities?

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un hasn't given up a single nuclear weapon, but that didn't stop President Donald Trump from reassuring Americans on Twitter that they should "sleep well" because the nuclear threat from Pyongyang is over. The Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll was conducted online in English, between June 12-13 in the United States. "North Korea has great potential for the future!" There's nothing in the joint statement about the ballistic missile threat, which is a key component of the [United Nations] Security Council resolutions.

"Trump has pulled off something that could make him a man of history and strengthen his America First project - howsoever unpalatable the thought is that Trump might become a victor in the overall bargain", said MK Bhadrakumar, a former diplomat and commentator.

Now that's frankly ludicrous. "I just have to be honest with you, it's a game, it's a game, and one ought not play games with serious matters like this". "I mean, what's the point of having troops there if they're not ready?" And they probably believe, correctly, that this was a good thing.

This has been taken to indicate that the U.S. would grant concessions to Pyongyang along the way.

As Trump acknowledged that denuclearization would not be accomplished overnight, the North suggested Wednesday that Trump had moved away from his demand for complete denuclearization before US sanctions on the long-isolated country are removed.
