North Korea summit: Trump says he "trusts" Kim Jong Un to denuclearize

Trump Kim share historic handshake warm words

Trump Kim share historic handshake warm words

He revealed new details about global relations that had never been made public, and took considerable time to boast and brag about all manner of achievements. Earlier today, when the contents of the documents remained maddeningly vague, Kim assured reporters that "the world will see a major change". "But I took all those bullets, I took all at that ... but I'm still standing".

"I'm given what I'm given", Trump said.

They had appeared cautious and serious when they first arrived for the summit at the Capella hotel on Singapore's Sentosa, a resort island with luxury hotels, a casino, manmade beaches and a Universal Studios theme park.

"Kim will be remembered as the leader who ushered in a glorious new era of security and prosperity for his people", he said.

"That's a long time for these big massive planes to be flying to South Korea to practice and drop bombs all over the place and then go back to Guam".

Mr Trump and Mr Lee had a private, one-on-one meeting that lasted about half an hour.

Kim was accompanied at the meeting by vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) Kim Yong Chol, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the WPK Ri Su Yong, and Colonel General No Kwang Chol - one of the three promoted in a recent North Korean military shakeup. About 5,300 were lost in North Korea. But the North has long sought an end to the United States military presence in the South, where Washington has around 28,000 troops stationed to protect it from its neighbour. He said, "Well, it's going to be achieved by having a lot of people there, and as we develop a certain trust - and we think we have done that".

Though when pressed later in the news conference by ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, Trump claimed it was actually discussed "at length".

Trump, who is seeking to persuade Kim to abandon his nuclear weapons program, called it "my honor" as he became the first sitting USA president to sit down with a North Korean leader.

According to Mr Trump, he gave up "nothing".

He said the details about the site being destroyed were not included in the joint declaration the leaders signed after almost five hours of talks because they agreed to it after the document was signed.

With reference to the Korean war Trump said.

"This guy wants to be around the world, he wants to come to America, he wants to enjoy his life, he wants his people to enjoy this life", said Rodman, adding that Kim is "not a dumb man".

The president also has said it will be the start of the process, suggesting that the meeting will set the stage for more detailed negotiations in coming months.

Trump, who had insisted he would know "within the first minute" if Kim was serious about denuclearization, said he "felt really great" and that it was his "honor" to meet with the North Korean dictator.
