Nolte: Never Trump Fanatics Go Insane over Trump-Kim Summit

Radio host Rush Limbaugh said the mainstream media wanted President Donald Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to fail, and they were caught completely off guard by the success of the meeting.

"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office".

North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat to the rest of the world, or at least that is according to U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump's Tuesday meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un produced a wave of USA concessions in exchange for vague, nonbinding promises from North Korea.

In remarks to reporters in South Korea reported by Bloomberg News, Pompeo said that the usa wants quick progress on North Korea's pledge to dismantle its controversial nuclear program.

"Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea", Trump added. The "most risky problem" outlined by former President Barack Obama was no longer a threat, he added. "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

A report in North Korea's Rodong Sinmun newspaper, another state-run outlet, claimed on Wednesday that the USA agreed to offer rewards as North Korea moved toward ridding itself of nukes.

With both Trump and Kim now having exchanged invitations to each other's countries, the USA president sees a promising personal relationship with his North Korean counterpart as the key to further progress.

For weeks, Pompeo and other officials have insisted North Korea must agree to "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization" before economic sanctions can be lifted.

The video was created by the White House's National Security Council to "help the president demonstrate the benefits of complete denuclearisation, and a vision of a peaceful and prosperous Korean Peninsula", White House spokesman Garrett Marquis said.

Mr Trump said during the press conference at the end of the summit that "the sanctions will come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor".

Trump, seemingly unprompted, has long wanted to withdraw the US from South Korea, and now he may have found a reason.

During the Hannity interview, Trump claimed that Kim agreed to terms that, for some reason, didn't make it into the actual written agreement.

How will this change relations between the United States and South Korea, particularly the presence of U.S. troops? Incidentally, Trump's announcement apparently surprised South Korean President Moon Jae-in's government in Seoul. As the two flags hung side-by-side in the backdrop for the first time ever, both Kim and Trump expressed hope that their summit would be fruitful. They probably now believe, correctly, that Trump used tough talk to bring Kim to the table. -South Korea joint military exercises that take place every year.

There are usually two sets of exercises every year, in spring and autumn, involving a massive number of troops and military hardware.

In Pyongyang, North Korean state media heralded claims of a victorious meeting with the USA president; photos of him standing side-by-side with Trump on the world stage were splashed across newspapers. "All that I think gave them confidence that this was the right site, the right choice". He said he planned to continue sharing the view with Washington and Seoul.
