The final communiqué from Tuesday's summit in Singapore between Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un produced few substantial gains for the U.S. In particular it repeats the vague language Kim has used before, committing North Korea only to "work toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". We didn't have a big screen like you have the luxury of having, we didn't need it because we had it on a cassette, an iPad, and they played it and about eight of their representatives were watching it and I thought they were fascinated by it.

Bloomberg reported that Trump's departure time was moved up in response to Kim's plans to leave Singapore shortly after the summit.

It was also a remarkable bet by Trump that he can persuade Kim to follow through on pledges to surrender his nuclear weapons that are nearly identical to those the North had made - and broken - in the past. Think of it from a real estate perspective. "He had a lot to do with us being here today".

Warmbier, from Wyoming, Ohio, and a student at the University of Virginia, died at the age of 22 days after he was returned to the United States in a coma.

He also called for the return of the six-party talks (held by North and South Korea, the United States, Japan, China, and Russia), according to Russian press agency TASS.

The video suggests that Kim could "be the hero of his people". Unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should. He also appears to have talked Trump into suspending joint U.S.

Trump said he had raised the issue of human rights with Kim, and he believed the North Korean leader wanted to "do the right thing".

Following their meeting in Singapore, the two leaders signed a declaration agreeing to "establish new U.S. - DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the population of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity".

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise described positive steps from the meeting, such as Kim saying he's willing to take steps toward denuclearization. Nor did the joint statement refer to human rights in one of the world's most repressive nations. "His country does love him", the prez said - ignoring the fact that those who don't show their "love" can wind up in concentration camps, or dead.

Earlier Tuesday, after his historic summit with Kim, Trump said the meeting between the two leaders may not have happened if not for the death of Otto Warmbier. The promise "to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" is meaningless: North Korea has consistently used that formulation to suggest it might give up its nukes one day - so long as the US does as well.
