Trump spoke to Fox & Friends this week about his meeting with Kim Jong Un and had only the highest of praise.
Despite such praise, newly emerging insider reports from the talks suggest that the summit did not go as smoothly as Trump might suggest. "He saluted me and I saluted him back". "He speaks and his people sit up in attention".
The two agreed to "continuously strengthen efforts to provide defence support, based on the solid South Korea-US alliance", the South Korean defence ministry said.
'When I came in people thought we were probably going to war with North Korea.
North Korea proposed to Seoul to disarm, on a trial basis, the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom, the South's presidential spokesman said. That's a good thing for us, Trump said.
He added that Mr Trump and Mr Kim had a "blunt conversation" about the changes needed for North Korea to rejoin the world community.
Trump was also censured for returning the salute of a North Korean general, a sign of respect, in a video recently released by the North Korean government.
Trump said he could also invite Kim to the White House.
"We can think about that and we can probably reduce the scale of the military exercises or probably we will stop this time, only once, deployment of strategic assets, which means strategic bombers and aircraft, fighters".
