Looming war games suspension raises concern in Seoul

After summit, North Korea shows Trump in striking new light

US President Donald Trump (R) gestures as he meets with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (L) at the start of their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

President Donald Trump reportedly gave North Korean leader Kim Jong Un his "direct" phone number following their landmark meeting in Singapore on Tuesday.

Trump retorted, "I'm kidding".

Further discussions between the Trump administration and the Kim regime will take place, but Trump was vague when asked about a potential White House visit from Kim.

"He can now call me if he has any difficulty", Trump said.

Vladimir Putin has invited Kim Jong Un to Russian Federation in September following the North Korean dictator's meeting with Donald Trump.

Still, many people on Twitter and beyond found the comment disconcerting, given North Korea's human rights violations and prison camps.

"Because I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy your family", he told one reporter.

Talks have swirled since Mr Trump unilaterally announced that the United States would halt war games as long as it is negotiating "in good faith" with North Korea.

Trump Feuds With Leaders of France, Canada Before Summit
Ask some people in Canada and they would very much feel it was their war, marked by American aggression. According to CNN , the comments came during a call between Trump and Trudeau discussing U.S.

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".
