Trump quip about North Korea's Kim sparks outcry on social media

In return, Mr. Trump agreed to stop the ongoing joint military exercises with political ally South Korea and establish diplomatic relations with North Korea. Kim sent a letter and flowers to Xi on his 65th birthday on Friday, Efe news reported on Saturday.

Most appallingly, Trump, fresh off nasty rebukes of the leader of friendly and democratic Canada, told ABC's George Stephanopoulos of Kim: "His country does love him".

"And I mean he's the strong head".

Kim made a surprise visit to China between March 25 and 28 and met with Xi, marking his first visit overseas and first summit since he came to power in late 2011.

Donald Trump recently took to Fox News' Fox and Friends to speak about his experience meeting with former nuclear rival Kim Jung-Un of North Korea. He speaks and his people sit up in attention. Here's what we get: "everything".

To some extent, officials in Tokyo and Seoul have grown accustomed to Mr. Trump's seat-of-the-pants decision making, and they also know that not everything he says ends up as official policy. "I want my people to do the same".

He is also scheduled to meet with senior USA officials and lawmakers.

However, in a sign Seoul may be open to suspending drills, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday his government would need to be flexible when it came to applying military pressure on North Korea if it was honest about denuclearisation. He subsequently told reporters, "I have solved that problem".

Diplomatic and military experts have been saying for years that there is no way that North Korea will ever give up its nuclear weapons. "Maybe I'll have to take an unannounced trip down to see them?" he said.

The agreement shows a clear miss from the United States, as there are no mentions of CVID ("complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement") of North Korean nuclear capabilities - something that was talked about a great deal in the run up to the meeting. 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.

"I find that question insulting and ridiculous and, frankly, ludicrous, " Pompeo said in Seoul, where he was seeking to reassure USA ally South Korea about Trump's negotiation, including a surprise halt to joint military exercises involving the US and South Korea.

In a video message Friday defending the nuclear agreement, Trump said the US must seize the chance to avert nuclear conflict "at all costs".

North Korea is and will remain totally deterred from attacking the United States, because it would be utterly destroyed in a massive American counter-strike. Richard Nixon used to refuse to recognize what was once called Red China, but he went to China to meet Mao Zedong in 1972 and flattered The Great Helmsman by telling him he had read his poetry.

President Donald Trump says his deal with North Korea's Kim Jong Un will save tens of millions of people from a potential nuclear war.

Defanging North Korea's strategic capabilities can proceed on a number of lines.

We really did hit it off. 'I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family . If we did, millions of people would have been killed, ' Trump said.


Already, Mr. Trump's preoccupation with North Korea has diverted attention from Chinese actions that alarm its neighbours, most notably a military buildup on islands that China built in the South China Sea. And money - especially the way Trump thinks the rest of the world takes advantage of the U.S. - was a theme the USA president returned to repeatedly in the post-summit press conference.
