Trump says U.S. must pursue peace with North Korea ‘at all costs’

Trump says U.S. must pursue peace with North Korea ‘at all costs’

President Trump on Friday complimented Kim Jong Un's authoritarian rule in North Korea, observing with apparent envy that when the 35-year-old dictator speaks, "his people sit up at attention".

Trump continued to admit that when "he speaks and his people sit up at attention". Trump - who has long pitched himself as a master dealmaker - feels the agreement represents a radical step toward solving an intractable foreign policy problem and has been publicly and privately grumbling that not everyone agrees.

"We're here now", the president said, according to The Post.

Trump faced questions on immigration, North Korea and the FBI's Inspector General report, which he says "totally exonerates" him and proves "there was no collusion" and "no obstruction".

"That's a very important thing", he said. "Maybe I'll have to take an unannounced trip down to see them?" he said. He noted that he gave Kim "a very direct number" and instructed him to "call me if he has any difficulties".

"I call them war games". Whilst uttering the sentiment, the president gestured towards the White House, implying that his "people" are his political colleagues, not the American public. "It's actually the opposite". "Yeah, I would have him. I want my people to do the same".

And Trump's unilateral decision to reduce tension by cancelling "provocative" joint exercises by USA and South Korean forces appeared to catch both close ally Seoul and some Pentagon officials by surprise. I met. I met, We met, we had great chemistry.

But, asked why he had praised Kim at all, given his history of rights abuses and the death of U.S. student Otto Warmbier after he fell into a coma in North Korean custody, Trump set up a stark choice.

Trump later joked about Kim executing his own generals while dismissing controversy surrounding his salute for a North Korean general.

"President Obama lost Crimea, just so you understand".

The two signed a vague agreement in which Trump reportedly agreed to stop America's joint military exercises with South Korea, but did not appear to get concrete concessions from Kim.

Trump replied, saying this: "Yeah, but so have a lot of other people have done some really bad things". "We're getting the remains".

Mr. Trump said sanctions will come off of North Korea soon, "when we can be sure there is no more nuclear" weapons.

"During our conversation, I emphasized the tremendous new prosperity, security, and opportunity that awaits North Korea when they denuclearise".
