  • Remember the 'axis of evil'? There's one member left and its chances for a Trump summit look dim

Trump indicated a White House visit by Kim was possible: "Hey he's the head of a country", Trump said. "Don't let anyone think anything different".

President Donald Trump reportedly gave North Korean leader Kim Jong Un his "direct" phone number following their landmark meeting in Singapore on Tuesday. "I want my people to do the same".

The US President was later questioned about the phrasings, to which he said, "I was kidding".

During the interview, the subject of Trump's recent Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un arose.

Mr. Trump was later asked how he can mourn the death of American Otto Warmbier, who was held hostage in North Korea, while defending Kim's disastrous human rights record.

President Donald Trump admires how North Korean President Kim Jong-un is deferentially treated by his citizens.

Prior to the summit, South Korean President Moon Jae-In told reporters that the returning of missing American and South Korean soldiers from the war would be a top priority, American Military News reported. I can call him.

Drake's 'I'm upset' video is basically one massive 'Degrassi' reunion
When TMZ asked if he would've liked to join the cast for Drake's music video had he been asked, he said "100%". Drake blended his rapping with his acting, and the video attracted fans of both his music and the teen drama.

He added that Mr Trump and Mr Kim had a "blunt conversation" about the changes needed for North Korea to rejoin the world community.

While some Democrats on the Senate committee in particular expressed concern about the lack of specifics from Trump about the North Korean talks, the hearing was largely positive. But South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday his government would have to be flexible when it came to military pressure on North Korea if it was honest about denuclearisation.

"Absolutely", Trump said. "It is in the agreement".

However, Trump's critics have called the US' suspension of military exercises with South Korea in exchange for a vague commitment by Kim to denuclearize an extreme concession to the dictator.

They agreed to implement a 2004 agreement, in which the two sides' militaries vowed to work to prevent unexpected clash in the West Sea, a joint statement said. I want to have a good relationship with many other countries.

In a wide-ranging spontaneous interview with Fox News outside the White House, the US President said Mr Kim's power should not be underestimated.

Twitter instantly reacted to Trump's statement, which some of his opponents in the #resistance viewed as proof of his dictatorial ambitions.
