Trump is exaggerating the results of his meeting with Kim. Bigly

Joint U.S. and South Korea military exercises occur regularly on the Korean Peninsula and have long angered North Korea, with Mr. Kim - like his father and grandfather before him - having called the drills a preparation for invasion of the North and seized on them as an impetus for hurling threats at Washington and Seoul.

The camera then panned to Kim who listened to the translation - and his reaction about their weight was utterly priceless.

"A handshake is no substitute for a binding, verifiable deal", Warren said in a statement Tuesday afternoon.

It had been made in America, by or on the orders of his White House, for the benefit of Kim.

"North Korea is a small and weak country surrounded by big powers and that has made North Koreans paranoid about their own national security and develop nuclear weapons, " said Yoon, speaking on Bloomberg Television.

"He was taking selfies and all that", said Rodman of his various meetings with Kim.

"We're going to denuke North Korea", Trump also told VOA contributor Greta Van Susteren, adding that USA troops stationed in South Korea will remain in place, but announcing one concession long-sought by North Korea not included in the document signed earlier in the day. At the time, North Korea had begun turning its nuclear fuel into warheads.

What is it that the U.S. and North Korea are actually committing to?

The meeting Rodman was referring to came back in March 2013. How do we measure success if we have not set clear goals? He did say that Otto Warmbier, an American who died past year just days after his release from imprisonment in North Korea, "did not die in vain" because his death helped bring about the nuclear talks. By signing onto the joint statement that reaffirms North Korea's commitment to the "denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", Trump may have signed up to a deal that could limit the US military's ability to operate in Northeast Asia. "Talking to dictators is one thing, embracing them is another", Biden blasted of the deal he said does not advantage the USA or make us safer.

"Think of it from the real estate prospective".

A confident leader strode into the Singapore summit and won. "At the end of the day, this is our last best chance to end this conflict without a war". But in the hours before the summit, the White House unexpectedly announced Trump would depart earlier than expected.

Efforts by previous presidents committed Pyongyang to far more detailed and specific restrictions, though the deals all ultimately failed.

That arsenal has given Kim more leverage at the negotiating table, but Trump has done little to dampen expectations for what he can achieve.

"Ending "war games" does not preclude normal peacetime training and is a decision easily reversed should Kim falter from this declaration of intent to pursue disarmament", he told The Times.

The North has faced crippling diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

If the United States and North Korea - these completely opposite social systems who have never trusted each other - actually do end up with a solid agreement; if the president can shake hands with a really nasty dictator at the price of making peace; is anything out of reach?
