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

Trump grounded his optimism in his own confidence that he can read an adversary and that his gamble of attempting personal rapport with an autocrat would pay off. Shortly after Trump's presser, a spokesperson from South Korea's Blue House (its executive branch of government) said that "the meaning and intention" of the United States president's remarks regarding the war games "require more clear understanding".

Kim, in turn, got at least one major benefit upfront. Trump gave no further details, but previous statements demanded that North Korean effectively eliminate its nuclear program before any US concessions can be considered.

Michael Green, Asia expert at the Washington DC-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies, said Mr Trump's announcement was "breathtaking" and blindsided Japan and South Korea.

Speaking from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Schumer lamented that Trump had granted "a brutal and repressive dictatorship the worldwide legitimacy it has long craved".

On Monday, KCNA, Rodong Sinmun and state television used the same photographs of Mr Kim's arrival in Singapore and his meeting with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the Istana. -South Korea military exercises while talks with the North were continuing. Col. Jennifer Lovett, a spokeswoman, said the command "has received no updated guidance on execution or cessation of training exercises".

"Look, president Trump is a deal-maker", he said. The Singapore summit proved a landmark victory for both.

A South Korean lawmaker with the ruling Democratic Party of Korea said Kim's initial performance appeared rehearsed. Answering a series of questions from the floor, Trump said that the USA will stop "war games" in South Korea, and later elaborated that he was speaking of their joint military exercises, held annually since the 1970s.

If it takes Dennis Rodman to break the ice, I bet he'd do it.

The U.S. president addressed criticism of his meeting with Kim, writing that "a year ago the pundits & talking heads, people that couldn't do the job before, were begging for reconciliation and peace- "please meet, don't go to war".

He instead suggested Trump's comment about suspending military exercises was "part of the negotiating". Chris Murphywrote on Twitter.

But the document doesn't lay out specifics regarding denuclearization by North Korea.

A better line of criticism, the congressman argued, would be to demand to know why Trump considers diplomacy appropriate for North Korea but tore up the Iran nuclear agreement and has advocated more bellicose approaches in other Middle Eastern nations as well.

Trump first announced there would be "a signing" shortly after midday, during a stroll with Kim around the hotel grounds. So number one we save money, a lot, and number two, it really is something that I think they [North Korea] very much appreciate.

"We will solve it", Trump replied.

"We will be stopping the war games which will save us a tremendous amount of money", Trump told reporters, adding that "at some point" he wanted to withdraw United States troops from the South.

And as reactions are starting to pour in from world leaders, it is important to remember that the summit has given the DPRK legitimacy on the world stage, while there was little talk of how this legitimacy was acquired: essentially by developing nuclear weapons.

KCNA said the two leaders ate and walked together, "deepening friendly feelings" towards each other. "What will he choose?"

Kim capped with day with statecraft, expressing his "gratitude" to Trump, just like any leader of a "normal state". I mean, I may stand before you in six months and say, 'Hey, I was wrong'.

The report added Trump said he "understood" and promised to halt joint U.S.
