White House: Trump saluting a North Korean general ‘a common courtesy’

'One broadcast said: "He gave up so much,"' Trump vented.

My favourites are Macron, Putin, and that time the Polish First Lady gave him bat. You haven't had a firing, a nuclear test in eight and a half months. You will have nuclear war.

"It's amusing when you see the fake news", he said.

It also noted Mr Trump's decision to halt joint military exercises with South Korea, which lives under constant threat of attack from North Korea and as a result, has been strengthening its army in the wake of the two politicians' Tuesday summit in Singapore.

"He speaks and people sit up at attention", Trump said. It's great. And it's going to be great for them too.

Mr Trump and Kim issued a joint statement after their meeting in Singapore this week that reaffirmed the North's commitment to "work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", while Trump "committed to provide security guarantees".

North Korea has been isolated on the worldwide stage for decades - with brief bursts of diplomacy - for its appalling human rights record and its relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Trump had said after his meeting with the North Korean leader that sanctions - which place stringent restrictions on how North Korea can interact with the outside world - would remain in effect until "the nukes are no longer a factor", but it was unclear exactly what that meant. "I want my people to do the same".

If Morocco wins the bid to host the games, it will be the second time the African continent is hosting the FIFA Men's World Cup . The tournament's first game, between host Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, begins at 6 a.m.

Kim was clearly the star of the 42-minute program as his handshake with Trump didn't appear until 20 minutes in. "Now we're getting it memorialised and all but that problem is largely solved". And the agreement says there will be total denuclearization.

Trump doubled down on his take on the DOJ's inspector general's report that found the FBI's actions during the 2016 presidential election were not politically motivated, but that some agents' actions hurt the agency's reputation.

The summit is also meaningful in that the USA recognized the North as an equal dialogue partner, he said.

Video released Thursday by North Korea shows the meeting of the two delegations on Monday in Singapore.

"I call them war games".

When directly asked about the obvious difference between the US and North Korean readouts on phasing - "Was the North ['s] account of the meeting accurate when they said that President Trump had agreed to a phased approach?"

"Yeah, but so have a lot of other people have done some really bad things", Trump told Fox News' Brett Bair when pressed on the matter. I guess they're using that as another sound bite.

The move sparked a debate on whether the US President was out of line with his gesture. I saved a lot of money, ' he said.
