How the Hill Reacted to the Trump-Kim Summit

"The Presidential summit outcome is the first step along the path to the goal: complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a free and open Indo-Pacific". "I think he trusts me, and I trust him".

The summit saw Trump and Kim share a historic handshake but critics say the love-in between the two was further evidence that Trump was helping legitimise the North Korean leader on the world stage.

But in return, Washington would offer "different and unique" guarantees "to provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearisation is not something that ends badly for them". -South Korea military exercises along the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, a tangible concession that drew criticism from a number of lawmakers back home. "You know, he can have a membership at Trump National", Graham said on CBS, referring to Trump's golf course.

"There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here".

In the end, he simply hitched a ride from his pal President Xi Jinping on an Air China Boeing 747 - a surprising move given North Korea's insistence on "juche" or self-reliance.

Speaking after Trump and Kim signed a vaguely worded statement at a much promoted first meeting, Russian Senator Vladimir Dzhabarov cast doubt around Pyongyang's true intentions. "I'm not trying to unify South Korea and North Korea".

North Korea should be asked to rejoin the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which it left in 1994, and should be obliged to join the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, even though the United States is not itself a member, he said.

In a post-summit interview with ABC News, the president said he was confident that the agreement meant full denuclearisation.

KCNA noted that the summit meeting is the first in history between the two countries and will be held "under the great attention and expectation of the whole world". It was a bad thing, it was brutal, but a lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea. "Donald Trump should take a lot of credit because he went out of the box and made this happen".

The former Chicago Bulls star said he tried talking to former US President Barack Obama.

Sebastian Gorka praised President Trump after his summit with Kim Jong Un that went "beyond all expectations". "You can see Kim Jong-un changing his position a few times and Trump tapping his fingers, [a sign of being] uncomfortable. I don't say he was nice".

In Mr. Trump's telling, his willingness to engage in personal diplomacy has persuaded the young Kim to abandon the nuclear-weapons program that he and his forbears have spent decades building.
