Paul Ryan on North Korea Summit: 'Today There Is Hope'

  • The 13 most bonkers moments from the Trump Kim summit. No you’re not hallucinating

The 57-year-old did not have an official role in the diplomatic negotiations between Trump and Kim, though he arrived in Singapore ahead of the summit "to see what's going on".

The optimistic summit was a remarkable change in dynamics from less than a year ago, when Trump was threatening "fire and fury" against Kim, who in turn scorned the American president as a "mentally deranged USA dotard".

South Korean President Moon Jae-In also unveiled a video produced for the North Korean leader during their meeting at the Demilitarized Zone in April. "You've got to take advantage of this momentum".

"Chairman Kim, as soon as he arrives [in Pyongyang], he will start a process that will make his people very happy, very safe", Trump had said in Singapore. "I'm pretty skeptical that foreign policy has any impact on domestic elections", he said, but added that he does understand the RNC's contortions to defend a deal they would have blistered had it been proposed by former Democratic President Barack Obama. Along the way, Trump tossed out pronouncements on USA alliances, human rights, and the nature of the accord that he and Kim had signed.

But he said sanctions would remain in place for now and argued "we haven't given up anything". Asked by a reporter before the summit how he would know if Kim was serious about de-nuclearization, Trump said he would rely upon "my touch, my feel". Trump responded that he embracing diplomacy with Kim in hopes of saving as many as 30 million lives.

Mr. Trump's announcement that the joint exercises would end appeared to catch some US defense officials off-guard.

I am on my way to Singapore where we have a chance to achieve a truly wonderful result for North Korea and the World.

Footage from the event shows U.S. president and the North Korean leader preparing to take their seats on opposite sides of a dining room table at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa.

And as they emerged from the meal for a brief stroll together, Trump appeared to delight in showing his North Korean counterpart the interior of "The Beast", the famed United States presidential limousine known for its high-tech fortifications. Then, it's their turn and they hold off. They never say yes or no. They walked outside together after the lunch, stopping briefly to look at the USA president's special limousine.

In the future, expert counsel on Kim's intentions may clash with Trump's positive perception of the North Korean leader. "There are too many cooks in the kitchen, too many messengers within the administration".

He cited American college student Otto Warmbier, who was arrested by North Korean authorities in 2016 and died a year ago after being repatriated to the United States with severe brain damage.

"Don't believe Kim Jong-un". His father, Kim Jong Il, also loved movies.

Donald Trump boasted about using his status as billionaire property mogul in his attempts to persuade Kim Jong-un to give up his nuclear weapons. If nothing else happens, Schumer said the meeting amounts to "purely a reality show summit". "A leader I can do business with" under a picture of Trump and Kim shaking hands.

Such talk may be premature, however. Kim, for his part, promised nothing beyond continuing to discuss "denuclearization", a term of art that does not even have an agreed-upon definition between the two countries.

"It's a joke. There's nothing in that agreement that North Korea hasn't agreed to 10 times before", said Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

"So the fact that the summit communiqué is brief, with major points and goals, without these details, it could reflect the fact that the two sides are still not on the same page regarding the pacing and the sequence of the action for action steps each side is looking for".
