Defector: Trump 'Stabbed the Heart' of North Koreans at Summit

Unprecedented meeting seen as a path to world peace

U.S. President Donald Trump was left to talk up a poor deal on Tuesday afternoon as he emerged from a day of photo ops and brief discussions with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Even as Pompeo staunchly defended the summit results, he was less exuberant than Trump, who tweeted on his return to the US on Monday morning: "Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office".

"The summit didn't result in a concrete framework for how to get to denuclearization or normalized U.S-North Korea relations, but it did put in place a process for sustained negotiations led by the State Department".

Only a few months ago, Kim and Trump were swapping personal insults such as "dotard" and "little rocket man" and the North conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test, as well as firing missiles over Japan. There's no question that the person who brought us to the brink of war was Trump, not Kim.

But he said that was no longer the case, and everyone can "sleep well tonight".

Almost an hour later, noted the "fortune" the USA will save as a result of his commitment to end U.S.

He also announced an unexpected end to US-South Korea military drills.

On 12 June President Trump announced the United States would stop its war games with South Korea in a concession made to Kim Jong-un after the two held direct talks in Singapore.

Some analysts are likely to see the comments as part of a worrying trend since North Korea showed no public sign at the summit or since that it is now willing to implement the complete, irreversible and verifiable destruction of its nuclear programs.

That's his essence. He has decided he trusts the butcher of Pyongyang who had his own brother and half-brother assassinated, has killed top aides for looking the wrong way, has 120,000 fellow Koreans in the political prisons where many starve to death and on and on in the Kim-dynasty atrocities department.

Mr Pompeo arrived at Osan Air Base south of Seoul from Singapore early on Wednesday evening and met for close to an hour with General Vincent Brooks, commander of US Forces Korea, at the air base before heading by motorcade to Seoul. Also, by letting North Korea dictate what the U.S. military does, Trump sends the U.S. down a slippery slope. -South Korean military drills and move forward with the plan to remove the 28,500 American troops stationed in Seoul. Pompeo is also due to meet the South Korean and Japanese foreign ministers.

North Korea is believed to possess more than 50 nuclear warheads, with its atomic program spread across more than 100 sites constructed over decades to evade worldwide inspections.

Trump and Kim in Singapore on Tuesday. The next scheduled major exercise, involving tens of thousands of troops, normally is held in August.

Washington has described the drills as defensive in nature, but Pyongyang says they are a rehearsal for invasion and has long called for them to end.

Park Won-gon at Handong Global University went further, slamming the agreement as "the scam of the century that reflected 99 percent of North Korea's wishes".

Even as they offered measured praise for Trump's diplomatic efforts, congressional Republicans have emphasized the hard road that remains and pressed for more details of what exactly the president agreed to with Kim.
