Putin invites 'comrade' Kim Jong Un to visit Russian Federation

US President Donald Trump claimed Friday following his summit with Kim Jong Un that he has "largely solved" the North Korean nuclear problem. "And - and what does everybody say about Trump?".

Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said last week that he was "happy" the president met with Kim, but he questioned the strength of the document Trump and Kim signed in Singapore. "Over here, in our country, some people would rather see this historic deal fail than give Trump a win, even if it does save potentially millions & millions of lives!"

More respondents termed the Trump-Kim meeting a success for North Korea than a success for the U.S.

Mr Trump returned to the United States from Singapore two days ago after his face-to-face talks with Mr Kim. I said do me a favor.

"We have a really great relationship [with North Korea] for the first time ever, no president's ever had this", he said. "I don't think we know enough to challenge or celebrate".

"How can Kim love his people if he's killing them?" the reporter asked Trump. Trump talks directly to the camera and praises his talks with Kim as "open, honest, direct and very, very productive".

When pressed by a reporter as to what he meant by this remark, Trump insisted, "I'm kidding". Don't let anyone think anything different.

He also described the exercises as "very provocative" and said the move would "save us a tremendous amount of money".

The meeting gave a big sigh of relief to the entire world as North Korean leader agreed to completely denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

"You are about to see something on the Fox News that has never happened, we believe, in the history of White House reporting", reporter Steve Doocy said live on air.

Only when the sides have worked out details, including a timetable for Pyongyang to dismantle its arsenal, submit to inspections and verification, and begin the process of decommissioning, can the region indeed rest easier.

Isolated and subject to UN Security Council sanctions over its banned nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes, North Korea does not often host global sporting events.

Trump on Sunday also re-posted one of his tweets from last week that contained multiple, previously unreported photographs from the G7 summit showing Trump smiling and seeming comfortable with other world leaders.
