He repeatedly defended the highly publicized meeting in Singapore last week with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un against criticisms that it was primarily a spectacle that yielded few tangible results.

Trump announced at the summit that the US would be "stopping war games" on the Korean Peninsula amid ongoing talks with North Korea about denuclearization.

North Korea aired the historic face-to-face meeting between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un across state media Thursday, painting the U.S. commander in chief in a new light. But Bret Baier actually wanted to know a little bit about that, so he did the right thing by asking Donald Trump about this atrocities committed by Kim Jong Un, and this is what Trump had to say to that question.

A poll released Sunday found a majority said it was "too early to tell" if the US-North Korea summit was a success for either side. Chuck Schumer in a tweet on Sunday for downplaying the significance of his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, proclaiming he's stopped the "rockets flying all over the place".

According to Trump, the two leaders privately discussed human rights and Kim reacted "very well" during their Tuesday summit.

"I really believe that he's happy that we made this kind of progress", Mr Trump said. "I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement".

He's very smart. Kim Jong Un - amusing guy.

Kim was clearly the star of the 42-minute program as his handshake with Trump didn't appear until 20 minutes in. I mean, he's clearly executing people.

The meeting gave a big sigh of relief to the entire world as North Korean leader agreed to completely denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

In a surprise interview with "Fox and Friends" on Friday, President Donald Trump announced live that he wants his people to "sit up at attention" when he speaks - the same way North Koreans do for dictator Kim Jong Un.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has also acknowledged a need to at least temporarily suspend the joint drills as long as North Korea is in denuclearization talks in good faith.

North Korea has perpetuated human rights abuses for decades. "Further, the military operates outside of North Korea to hunt down asylum seekers, and brutally detains and forcibly returns North Korean citizens".

North Korea proposed to Seoul to disarm, on a trial basis, the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom, the only site in the Demilitarized Zone where both countries' soldiers stand nearly face to face, the South's presidential spokesman said. He then went on to praise the dictator for being a strong leader. Officials have not verified reports that North Korea may have demolished a stand used for missile-ejection tests in May.
