Trudy Rubin: President Trump got played by Kim Jong Un

When later asked by another reporter to expand on the remark, Trump said he was "kidding". "We had great chemistry".

"I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family", Trump told reporters.

"We have to suspend our judgement" until more details emerge, he said, but added "there is nothing from the meeting to say we've achieved anything".

The accord said Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", but set no timetable for the disarmament or terms for independent inspections of North Korean nuclear sites.

The Republican firebrand also joked he would like to see Americans "sit up at his attention" in the same way the people of North Korea do for the despot.

The president also spoke in the interview about the economic sanctions on Pyongyang, which were ramped up previous year in response to North Korea's testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles and its sixth nuclear weapons test.

"There is a great deal of difference between the North Korea before the Singapore summit and the North Korea after the summit", the official said. Say an American solider was 18 when he was sent to North Korea in the war's final year, 1953 - he would have been 80 in 2015; if his parents had given birth to him when they were 18, they would have been 98 in 2015. "We can schedule this meeting regardless of global events between our foreign ministries", he said. If Mr. Kim complies, the United States president even promised to lift all trade sanctions, a move that will help strengthen North Korea's struggling economy.

Meanwhile Friday, the White House released a statement from the president outlining plans to address "unfair practices" China has engaged in with regards to trade. Nixon told Mao that they had many differences but that "what brings us together is a recognition of a new situation in the world".

"They might use it", Mr. Trump said. He said he would suspend further USA military exercises with our faithful ally, saying that such "war games" were "provocative", a term often used by Pyongyang to condemn U.S military "war games". You haven't had a missile test in seven months, ' he said, referencing North Koreans refrain from provocative ballistic missile launches. And the agreement says there will be total denuclearization.

In an impromptu interview with Fox News' "Fox & Friends", Trump praised Kim's strength as a leader, and said, "Hey, he is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head". The president afterward said he wanted to end the United States' joint military exercises with South Korea.
