I think the border got a little more open. So he's a very smart guy, he's a great negotiator.

Trump on President Xi of China: "He's an incredible guy". Just think of the connection the two men might have made had they spent an entire day together!

Asked about his having suggested Russian Federation be let back into the G7, Trump said of that meeting, "We spent about 25% of our time talking about Russian Federation". -South Korean drills could also erode the effectiveness of the military alliance between Washington and Seoul. This is a positive development. Most importantly, the talks were a welcome change from the hostile posturing and war threats which dominated relations between the two governments past year.

"One can't completely denuclearize without validating, authenticating".

"Given that they were able to sign this agreement, it will prove that USA remains to be a superpower and also this will give them the right, more leverage on how they will engage with North Korea diplomatically or economically", he said.

Most experts assess that the North Korean leader got the better deal at the summit. Launching attacks in the hope that everything would work out just right would be playing a fearsome geopolitical game of chicken with potentially millions of lives at stake. He and Mr Trump met on a red carpet in front of a backdrop of equal numbers of United States and North Korean flags at the Capella hotel, a luxury resort on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

"We save a fortune by not doing war games, as long as we are negotiating in good faith - which both sides are!"

The meeting yielded some other benefits. I'm glad the meeting took place. Since taking power he has regularly shuffled the security leadership, but the mass removal was unusual.

The freaky quirks of the summit seemed to follow us even as Air Force One left Singapore behind.

He said: "One such operation that was uncovered recently was GhostSecret, which stole data from 17 countries!" Their seemingly friendly meeting was in sharp contrast to their tit-for-tat insults and bellicose rhetoric late a year ago while Pyongyang carried out its biggest nuclear and missile tests.

The president's remarks about North Korea no longer being a threat were echoed Thursday by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who said the Trump-Kim summit meant the world had escaped the threat of war. "They can't threaten the United States in that way". However, fudging commitments risks undermining denuclearization. Kim promised to leave behind an often bitter past. You have a different secretary of state.

"As soon as the meeting's over, he runs out, calls a press conference, declares victory, everyone goes home, Kim Jong Un does nothing differently at all, and we go back to our lives, too".

That obviously remains to be seen.

The joint statement released Tuesday was scant on the details, leaving the agreement between Trump and Kim vague.

Trump returned to Washington, declaring on Twitter "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea", even though the agreement he signed with Kim does not spell out how Pyongyang will dismantle its nuclear weapons program.
