Trump grumbles that North Korea deal not earning wide…

Clapper US in much better place after summit

Speaking to reporters on the White House lawn, Trump said on June 15 that his predecessor, Barack Obama, had told him North Korea's nuclear weapons program was the "most risky problem" facing the United States.

US President Donald Trump on Friday said he wished people would "sit up at attention" for him like North Koreans do for their leader Kim Jong Un, a joke that sparked instant outrage on social media and cable news.

I want my people to do the same, Trump said. "I can now call him", he said. "The people of America, the people of the Koreas, the people of world deserve a future of security and of peace", Trump said in a video message yesterday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin met with a senior North Korean official in Moscow on Thursday and invited North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to visit Russia. "I would not be sitting in this place", Park told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball about Kim loving his people.

The president's remarks followed several instances this week in which he has brushed aside questions about North Korea's human rights record, which the United Nations has described as among the worst on the planet. "I want my people to do the same", the president told "Fox and Friends".

"And I mean he's the strong head". The two visits by Kim to China before the summit with the USA indicate that China plays a role by providing North Korea some assurance and by aligning with the country.

Hailing the success of this week's summit in Singapore, Trump told reporters in Washington that he is now in direct contact with Kim and that their "good relationship" had ended the risk of conflict.

He went on to say that when Kim speaks, "his people sit up at attention".

He claimed he has "largely solved" the North Korean nuclear problem following his summit with Kim.

Japan is expected to contribute towards the costs of North Korea's denuclearisation but only after the International Atomic Energy Agency restarts inspections, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

The challenge of defending the agreement became apparent this past week when Pompeo lashed out at a reporter who asked how the USA would verify the North's compliance with the deal. You don't understand sarcasm.

Among Trump's most vocal supporters is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who led negotiations to set up the summit and will hold talks with the North to work out details of the deal.

He also hinted at the possibility of inviting Kim Jong-un to the White House. "He gave us a lot", the President added.
