How the Hill Reacted to the Trump-Kim Summit

Unprecedented meeting seen as a path to world peace

In his tweets, Mr Trump called his meeting with Kim "an interesting and very positive experience".

The two leaders met on Tuesday, signing a brief declaration on denuclearisation and reducing tensions. The president would not elaborate on these hazy measures of time.

On the other hand, Russian Federation and China, who joined North Korea in criticizing the joint military drills in the past, welcomed Trump's decision. -South Korea military exercises could be put back on if talks with Pyongyang do not progress.

Former Defense Secretary under President Barack Obama Leon Panetta says President Trump shouldn't give anything to North Korea until he sees what steps they are prepared to take to denuclearize.

Greg Scarlatoiu, with the US -based Committee for Human Rights in North Korea said he was disappointed that human rights was not discussed in any substantial way, but noted that the summit is the beginning of a longer diplomatic process.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday morning that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat to the USA after his meeting this week in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, adding that Americans should "sleep well tonight". But the White House "tried to fill in the blanks", he said, and in Kimmel Live's imagining, Trump gave away a comically large number of things.

"On the positive side of the summit, one, we are now on a path to diplomacy rather than military confrontation and easing of tension in the Korean Peninsula because of this historic summit", former Clinton administration ambassador to the United Nations and Democratic former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson reportedly said on a conference call with reporters.

If the always eloquent President John F. Kennedy, a suave and mannered Democrat, was around today and said what you're about to read, I suspect the distinguished members of our Fourth Estate would ask not what they could do for his words.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offered a clearer statement on the eve of the summit, saying sanctions would remain in place until Pyongyang delivered "CVID" - meaning complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization. "The V matters", he told reporters. Past year it tested long-range missiles that could reach the US mainland, although it remains unclear if it has mastered the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead that could re-enter the atmosphere and hit its target.

Dixons Says Almost 6 Million Cards Targeted in Cyberattack
According to Dixons Carphone, there's now "no evidence" that any fraudulent activity has taken place as a result of the breach. The data did not contain pin codes, card verification values (CVV) or any authentication data according to Dixons Carphone.

Pompeo says Trump was "unambiguous" in conveying that to Kim.

The reported agreement, if confirmed by the USA, could be considered as a concession by Trump because USA officials had called for the North to take swift disarmament measures before getting major outside concessions and benefits.

How will this change relations between the US and South Korea, particularly the presence of United States troops?

President Trump answered only that it had been "a great three days", before getting into the auto and driving off.

The president fired off another tweet less than an hour later, blasting the naysayers who condemned his decision to meet with Kim.

"Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea".

Of course, it's no surprise that North Korean outlets would paint a picture of Kim dictating to the American president, but the factual discrepancies in the two accounts are exactly why there were concerns about Trump and Kim talking one-on-one, with only their interpreters present.

Trump agreed to end joint U.S.

Trump and Kim in Singapore on Tuesday. "They did not record it. Plus, I think it's very provocative".
