Trump Wants to Be Treated Like North Korea Chief Kim Jong

President Donald Trump declared Washington's nuclear stand-off with North Korea "largely solved" on Friday, after he gave young autocrat Kim Jong Un his telephone number and cancelled United States war games.

"I have solved that problem", Mr Trump said. Since the summit, Trump has called Kim "tough" for the way he runs his country. The president said he gave Kim "a very direct number" and that the two leaders have the ability to communicate directly. "We can schedule this meeting regardless of global events between our foreign ministries", he said.

Trump told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an exclusive interview on Tuesday, following his meetings with Kim, that he trusted the North Korean leader. "I want my people to do the same", he said.

"I'm convinced that our alliance commitments to South Korea remain ironclad and have not changed", he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Fox News has gotten greater access to Trump than any other news outlet throughout his campaign and presidency. "I think the issue of the exercises is a key issue for our alliance, and whatever we do about that will ensure that the very strong combined defense posture of the alliance is maintained".

And Trump's unilateral decision to reduce tension by cancelling "provocative" joint exercises by US and South Korean forces appeared to catch both close ally Seoul and some Pentagon officials by surprise.

"I find that question insulting and ridiculous and, frankly, ludicrous", Pompeo said in Seoul, where he was seeking to reassure USA ally South Korea about Trump's negotiation, including a surprise halt to joint military exercises involving the US and South Korea.

Regarding the agreement, President Trump stressed that quote "I signed an agreement where we get everything",. balking at his critics who insist the summit results were a disappointment and were a significant concession to the regime. "He speaks and his people sit up in attention". The program claimed that the Singaporeans warmly welcomed the North Korean leader and expressed their excitement over witnessing such a historic event, the media said.

Following his remarks, the President later emphasised his remarks were "sarcastic" when asked by reporters at the White House. Some experts experienced in North Korea and nuclear politics are skeptical.

During the summit, Kim and Trump exchanged views on the situation in Korea.

Trump said he could also invite Kim to the White House. "If there's a chance at peace, if there's a chance to end the awful threat of nuclear conflict, then we must pursue it at all cost", the USA president said.
