A large contingent of Democrats criticized the president and his staff for tentatively granting a number of concessions to the North Koreans, including a pause on military exercises in South Korea and even meeting with Kim in the first place to lend his leadership legitimacy on the global stage.

Trump has credited his "maximum pressure" campaign of crippling trade and economic sanctions for bringing Kim to the negotiating table and vowed to keep them in place until North Korea complies with its promises.

That is, of course, correct.

In an interview with the Fox News host, the president said that at time his aggressive tone against Kim felt "foolish".

Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington tomorrow morning after spending today with Kim in Singapore, but on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8pm today after a full day of meetings with Kim - nearly 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

The drills - often called "war games" - are held in South Korea with local forces and United States soldiers stationed there. "Many people in the world will think of this as a scene from a fantasy...science fiction movie", Kim Jong-un was heard telling Donald Trump. "I want to see the President succeed, but a handshake is no substitute for a binding, verifiable deal". There was no proof, though, that this suspension were permanent rather than a simple freezing of activity while Kim negotiated with other countries like South Korea and the U.S.

"When I got home (from North Korea in 2014), I got so many death threats".

With Trump, however, Rodman said, things changed because he understood that people of North Korea have a heart and a soul. "Talking to dictators is one thing, embracing them is another", Biden blasted of the deal he said does not advantage the USA or make us safer.

Trump phoned South Korean President Moon Jae-in after leaving Singapore to brief him on the discussions. "We overcame all kinds of scepticism and speculations about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace", he said.

At one point, it features a montage with babies and auto factories, suggesting what a more prosperous future for North Korea could look like if it agreed to give up its nuclear arsenal.

On human rights, Trump said Tuesday's meetings only very briefly touched on the topic, but that the two sides would discuss it more in the future.

"He can come to the White House as long as he gives up his nuclear program, gives up his missile program. Sen".

"No-one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea", Mr Trump said during his infamous "little rocket man" speech to the United Nations past year.

"Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a long time in my life", Trump said. -South Korea joint military exercises is also a win for Kim: The dictator was able to seize on Trump's all-too-apparent desire to make the summit a "great success".

The 1994 deal included detailed commitments from North Korea to close plutonium-producing nuclear reactors and secure spent fuel rods, so they couldn't be turned into weapons grade fuel.
