President Trump raises eyebrows with ‘joke’ comparing himself to Kim Jong Un

My Word: Kicking the Korean can down the road

In this image made from June 12, 2018, video released by KRT, U.S. President Donald Trump salutes No Kwang Chol, minister of the People's Armed Forces of North Korea, as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, center, introduces Trump to the general during the summit in Singapore.

In a statement, Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said Mattis and Song discussed how the two nations are working together to "fulfil the President's guidance on US-South Korean combined military exercises". "I want to have a good relationship with North Korea".

"People are shocked", he continued.

"I think, actually, they will be very faithful in carrying out their main promises and their pledges".

Some have raised questions about the agreement struck by Trump and Kim, because of its lack of specifics in addressing the North's denuclearization.

"He's the head of the country", Trump said of Kim Friday during a live interview on Fox News' "Fox and Friends".

Mr. Trump said sanctions will come off of North Korea soon, "when we can be sure there is no more nuclear" weapons.

Mr Trump's nominee as next ambassador to South Korea, Harry Harris - previously a supporter of the drills - has said that "major exercises" should be paused to allow time to test Pyongyang's commitment about dialogue.

Kim and Trump signed a joint statement, agreeing to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for security guarantees for the DPRK. "He speaks and his people sit up to attention - I want my people to do the same".

'How can he love his people if he's killing them?' asked a reporter, referencing Trump's series of comments praising Kim, despite North Korean work camps, a gulag system, political killings, and occasional starvation.

Trump drew on emotional language when a reporter asked how he could essentially defend North Korea's human rights record despite the kidnapping that resulted in the death of Otto Warmbier, a deceased former American hostage Trump and diplomats helped free.

Trump's comment on Fox followed other musings during the Singapore trip while watching a bit of North Korean television.

Dr Dena Grayson, a former candidate for USA congress, also noted North Korea's media was able to film this event while the western media wasn't. But I think so far [the negotiations with North Korea are] meeting the minimal standards for success. "We had great chemistry".

The inspector general report, while damaging to the FBI and to Comey personally, does not support Trump's allegation that political preferences influenced the conduct of the email investigation into his Democratic presidential rival.
