Trump declares via Twitter the NKorea nuclear threat is over

It's the first ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader

US President Donald Trump (2nd R) and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (2nd L) sign documents as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (R) and the North Korean leader's sister Kim Yo Jong (L) look on at a signing ceremony during the US-North Korea summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

President Donald Trump declared Wednesday that the North Korean regime no longer poses a nuclear threat following his summit with Kim Jong Un, even though the meeting produced no verifiable proof that the rogue regime will discontinue its nuclear program.

"We're going to get denuclearization", Pompeo said at a press conference following trilateral talks with South Korea's foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japan's foreign minister Tarō Kōno.

So if North Korea doesn't come through with its denuclearization pledges, if it makes extreme counterdemands of the United States, if it is caught in a lie while claiming to denuclearize, Trump's vouching for Kim will come under especially heavy scrutiny.

North Korea's tightly controlled state media has enthusiastically reported the summit as a great achievement for the country, which remains isolated and heavily sanctioned.

"It is something that (North Korea) very much appreciated".

Pompeo is scheduled to fly to Beijing to meet his Chinese counterpart after the meetings in Seoul.

Pompeo insisted North Korea was committed to giving up its nuclear arsenal but said it would "be a process, not an easy one".

He bristled at questions from reporters about the vague wording of the statement where North Korea "commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" - a promise it has made several times before in the past 25 years and reneged on.

After arriving back in the U.S., the president also tweeted that "everybody can now feel much safer".

Trump says NKorea no longer a nuclear threat
Trump pledged to work on the issue, but the Singapore agreement included no language on the return of abductees. Now, when questioned about the human rights abuses in North Korea , the President has defended "tough guy" Kim.

Under the deal, the North retains its nuclear warheads, the missiles to launch them and has not agreed to any specific process to get rid of them. North Korea's Kim Jong-un left Singapore at around 11:20 PM yesterday, . and he is expected to have arrived in North Korea this morning. "North Korea has great potential for the future!"

"Our deficit with China is still too high", said Pompeo, adding that it's "important for President Trump to rectify that situation so trade becomes more balanced, more reciprocal and more fair with opportunity to have American workers to be treated fairly".

"He's an incredible guy", Trump said. Both Moon and Xi have advocated a phased approach to negotiations and moved to quickly fix ties with North Korea, while Japan wants the USA -led "maximum pressure" campaign to continue.

Mr Trump's surprise promise to call off military exercises, describing them as expensive and "provocative", delighted North Korea and China but caught key U.S. allies off-guard.

North Korean viewers had to wait nearly 20 minutes into the program for Trump's first appearance.

A Japanese government source familiar with the matter told Reuters officials aimed to discuss a summit with North Korean officials at a regional security conference in Mongolia on Thursday and Friday.

At the same time, Trump has been quick to criticize USA allies, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada, with whom he'd met at the G-7 summit just before departing for Singapore.

Trump, who returned to Washington early on Wednesday, hailed the meeting with Kim, the first between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader, as a success that had removed the North Korean nuclear threat.
