Who gained and who lost what from the Trump-Kim summit

Who gained and who lost what from the Trump-Kim summit

The statement comes just hours after Trump and Kim's historic summit on North Korean nuclear weapons.

Pompeo is scheduled to immediately fly to Seoul and Beijing after the summit to brief South Korean allies and Chinese officials on the discussions, reflecting the reality than any solutions in the region will need buy-in from those nations.

"I'm very optimistic that we will have a successful outcome from our meetings tomorrow", he said.

Trump may be credited with creating a positive atmosphere around the talks in Singapore, where a day of bonhomie in front of the cameras contrasted sharply with last year's exchange of insults and threats with Kim that raised fears of war.

Other Republicans raised questions about the necessity of ending the exercises.

"There is nearly nothing of significant substance - or even new - in this document. We will be there together with North Korea along the way", he said.

But the chances of North Korea successfully emulating the Vietnam model are "slim", according to a team of economists at Capital Economics led by Gareth Leather. A federal investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election also hangs over his presidency. While the Trump presidency so far has been more about unraveling all that came before him, here is one area of foreign policy where the Trump administration is actually moving the ball forward in a constructive manner.

But if negotiations hold and the Korean peninsula moves toward peace and reconciliation, the US will slowly lose one of its most critical security footholds in Asia.

Trump himself scoffed at the sceptics earlier on Tuesday. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said in a statement Tuesday. It is also concerning that there was nearly no mention of North Korea's atrocious human rights records and whether it would be a condition required in any agreement.

Khanna even went on Fox News on Monday to ding Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) for a letter that Schumer and other Democrats signed insisting that Trump adhere to strict conditions as he proceeds in talks with Kim.

"This person is not a wise representative for the USA", he said, taking a direct shot at Mr. Trump during Tuesday's press conference in Tehran, Iranian state news outlet Fars News reported. -South Korea military drills - was characterized by state-run media as a major victory in hand for Kim.

Mintaro Oba, a former U.S. State Department diplomat specialising in the Koreas, said the summit was more about style and symbolism.

Some analysts doubt that's possible given the country's troubled economic past and nature of the Kim regime.

"Very, very good", the president said.

"But again, as we learn from the past, North Korea will agree to take these steps, but you can't trust them ultimately to fulfill what they commit to", he said.

Many agreements have been made in the past with North Korea that have later fallen apart, and ahead of the meeting, critics expressed concerns that it risked being more about headlines than substantive progress. "Why not ease sanctions?"

Several lawmakers expressed alarm Tuesday with President Donald Trump's plans to halt military exercises with USA ally South Korea following his historic summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, with some of them arguing any deal has to be ratified by Congress.
