  • Watch Trump salute North Korean general

Following the historic summit with top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un, Trump said in Singapore Tuesday that he would stop the USA war games with South Korea as it is inappropriate to stage such "provocative" military drills under the situations he and Kim reached a comprehensive deal.

National Security Adviser and retired soldier Paul D Eaten, who served more than 30 years in the USA army said the move was "wholly inappropriate for the Commander in Chief".

"I want to have a good relationship with North Korea", he said.

"People are shocked", the president continued.

Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un signed a deal to steer North Korea towards denuclearisation, in exchange for reduced economic sanctions from America. "I got along with him very well".

North Korea agreed to "complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" only in very general terms, without a timeline or a commitment to allow global verification.

"I congratulate US President Donald Trump for the historic summit in Singapore", Netanyahu said in a statement.

An internal report has revealed Israeli foreign ministry officials' reservations over the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un, despite the government's public endorsement.

During Thursday's White House media briefing, press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump was just using "common courtesy".


The joint statement released Tuesday was scant on the details, leaving the agreement between Trump and Kim vague. In an interview Friday, Trump seemed to admit he was glossing over human rights violations by the North Korean regime, and insisted that it was necessary for him to do so in order to avert nuclear war.

"He speaks and his people sit up at attention", the President added.

Senator Chris Van Hollen, also a Democrat, said of Trump's tweet about North Korea no longer presenting a threat: "This is truly delusional".

Mr Song said the two allies should be "flexible" about how much military pressure they put on the North, the ministry said, adding that the US and South Korea would hold further discussions soon. We have a great chemistry together.

"You know you call people sometimes killers, he is a killer".

North Korean people stand at attention for Kim Jong Un because they will be shot if they don't.

Trump later told a reporter he was being sarcastic.

Mr. Trump downplayed Kim's actions, suggesting Kim isn't alone in that.
