Trump Says He’ll Know Outcome of North Korea Summit After One Minute

Eight days after cancelling the unprecedented summit, citing Pyongyang's "open hostility,"Trump welcomed North Korea's former intelligence chief, now under punitive USA sanctions, to the White House Oval Office, afterward exchanging smiles and handshakes, and patting his arm in a friendly gesture". Trump said. "Well, I think that very quickly I'll know whether or not something good is going to happen".

Hopefully the photos from the real meeting will be as good as these. (Carlos Barria/Reuters) North Korea handing over its nuclear weapons, however, is nearly certainly not going to happen at this meeting. It will certainly be an exciting day and I know that Kim Jong-un will work very hard to do something that has rarely been done before, create peace and great prosperity for his land.

"If a breakthrough is achieved, if peace comes, there will be a bountiful harvest, primarily of course within the Korean Peninsula but indeed for all the rest of us", he said. I think it would be good for Russian Federation, I think it would be good for the United States, I think it would be good for all of the countries of the current G7.

"The situation was much more shocking than I had expected", he said. "I think the G-8 would be better".

His 2014 report found there were at least 100,000 prisoners and up to 150,000 held in detention camps.

Trump expressed frustration that some analysts have said Kim already has bested him simply by getting him to agree to a summit, noting that the regime released three American prisoners last month. "It's about willingness to get things done". "People, world leaders that have been right next to him have never met him". -North Korea summit and what's at stake with the historic event.

"When they see that what they say doesn't match with what is actually happening, they understand the government is lying".

During his 14 trips to North Korea, he has attended celebrations, participated in meetings and visited schools and hospitals.

"I was so impressed and taken aback by the facilities and the treatment that the old age people in the DPRK and Pyongyang". The president appeared exhausted and subdued, and he demeaned the press corps, calling some US news outlets "unbelievably dishonest" and "fake news" before aides pulled him away to start his journey to Southeast Asia.

But his new Secretary of State Is hinting at more.

"Thank you for all the donations you have been making to North Korea, well, me".

"It gives me an indication that the hostility by the average Australians against the DPRK is reducing and there's more interest in learning about the country". Entrepreneurs have been scrambling to cash in on the worldwide media spectacle, hawking Trump-Kim fusion burgers and summit-themed cocktails. "And if I think it won't happen I'm not going to waste my time, I'm not going to waste his time". China - North Korea's only ally - has long pushed for dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang.

"The success will be in the shutter clicks of the cameras", he said.

Engagement is the only option.

Trump in recent days has tamped down his threats of continued "maximum pressure" on Kim over his arsenal, and indicated any verifiable denuclearization push could take time. Mr Xi's agenda remains hidden, and muddied by its complicated relationship with both North Korea, and the US. North Korea "has numerous facilities involved in the development, production, and testing of nuclear weapons and missiles, some of them located at the known nuclear complex at Yongbyon, but many located at undeclared sites elsewhere in the DPRK. It's the engagement, especially humanising, giving a human face to North Korea, that is our biggest protection from war". "It's a standard North Korean media tactic".
