Watch Trump straight up lie about reading the letter from Kim Jong

Watch Trump straight up lie about reading the letter from Kim Jong

The two sides have been at odds over how far North Korea will go to dismantle its nuclear weapons program and what security guarantees the regime would receive in return. I never said it goes in one meeting. He said, "I think you're going to have a very positive result in the end, not from one meeting".

"Kim would begin by praising Trump's leadership and his "bold decision" to build up the summit, " said Koh, who is also a policy adviser to the South Korean president. "I said, 'Would I do that when we're talking so nicely?'"

"Photo ops of the two together, smiling, those are disseminated in North Korea to show the two leaders are equal", said Bill Richardson, the former USA ambassador to the United Nations who met with several dictators, including Iraq's Saddam Hussein, and made several trips to Pyongyang. "We will see what we will see".

The flurry of diplomacy has also seen a rapprochement on the Korean peninsula, with the two Koreas holding high-level talks on Friday at the border truce village of Panmunjom to discuss their ongoing efforts to improve ties.

Mr Trump made the announcement after talks with a senior North Korean envoy at the White House.

Still, he refused to say whether the North agreed to the U.S. demand for complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization. According to Reuters, the Shangri-La Suite in the hotel's Valley Wing had a price tag of 10,000 Singapore dollars, or about $7,471, for the night of June 12.

North Korean officials said Kim Yong Chol was expected to return to Pyongyang shortly.

North Korea's flurry of diplomatic activity following an increase in nuclear weapons and missile tests in 2017 suggests that Kim is eager for sanctions relief to build his economy and for the global legitimacy a summit with Trump would provide. "North Korea can build nukes and ICBMs, but claim they are too poor to pay for foreign travel costs". Was Kim's letter to Trump like that?

When asked if he could offer a "flavor of what the letter said", Trump said: "It was a very interesting letter". An aide later confirmed he did after the talks.

Trump joked about the letter the North delivered but would not disclose its contents.

"I told them, 'I think that you're going to have, probably, others.' Hey, wouldn't it be wonderful if we walked out and everything was settled all of a sudden from sitting down for a couple of hours?"

Kim Yong Chol was allowed into the United States despite being on a US sanctions list, and granted special permission to travel outside the NY area to meet with the president.

Trump appeared to significantly lower expectations for the outcome of the historic summit, frequently describing it as the start of a process and not the place where the two leaders were likely to sign any agreement. I think what the U.S.is trying to do is they're trying to focus on denuclearization first, and if those talks are successful, I think they believe there will be a later point where they can raise this human rights issue to the North Koreans. They can make a strategic shift.
