U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking to a small group of reporters in Seoul on Wednesday, said Trump was unambiguous that the exercises would be frozen as long as there were productive, good-faith negotiations with Pyongyang. Mr. Trump said in a news conference in Singapore earlier this week that the issue of human rights did not come up in his meeting with Kim.
It said the two men "gladly accepted" mutual invitations to visit each other's countries.
The Pentagon has said that the next large-scale joint military exercise with South Korea is Ulchi Freedom Guardian, scheduled for fall.
"We will never go back to the past again and never give up on this bold journey". "Now look, with all of that being said, the answer is yes" - referring to Baier's query about Kim having done bad things.

State media also said that Trump agreed to lift sanctions and promised unspecified security guarantees. Trump is also wrong to say there was an assumption before he took office that the United States would go to war. A major challenge, according to these officials, is to turn Trump's broad intentions into detailed military guidance. "I'm not trying to unify South Korea and North Korea". "By the way, Korean stuffed cucumber is stuffed with Koreans - Kim is a monster".
The five-hour summit did give Trump and Kim a chance to express optimism and make of show of their new relationship. The joint statement implicitly links denuclearisation to "new US-DPRK relations" and to mutual confidence building (that) can promote the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
