Potcoin Sponsors Dennis Rodman’s Singapore Visit During Summit Talks

Trump's vow to end US-South Korea drills catches Pentagon off guard

The remarks contradicted countless previous declarations by U.S. political and military officials over the years that the drills are routine, defensive and absolutely critical.

On Tuesday, Trump and Kim announced an agreement committing the U.S.to unspecified "security guarantees" in exchange for the eventual denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Trump's statement was portrayed by critics as an unreciprocated concession.

DPRK stands for North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Young men watched the Trump-Kim summit with heightened anticipation. Seoul's presidential office told The Associated Press that it was trying to parse Trump's comments.

The exercises allow US and South Korean forces to practice mobilizing soldiers in the event of conflict, and to run computer simulations to improve coordination between the two militaries.

Their first moments together were picked apart for any clues about how the political heavyweights would match up. "We would like to ask North Korea to make policy changes in a visible way", Onodera said, expressing concern about Trump's plans to suspend the joint exercises with Seoul.

Mr. Trump had also said it would be "inappropriate to be having war games" with South Korea while working out the administration's deal with North Korea.

The military doesn't use the term "war games".

More than 35,000 Americans were killed on the Korean peninsula during the war, with 7,700 of these USA troops still listed as missing in action - a lot of them in North Korea.

Trump did say, to the relief of skeptics who, unlike the president, do not believe Kim is serious, that economic sanctions will remain in place until the USA confirms that the North has given up the nukes. "But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money". Donald Trump, Rodman said, should get credit for this because he is the person who made it all happen.

In April, Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in had held a historic summit to bring lasting peace in the Korean Peninsula. Rodman said he did not quite understand what the situation in North Korea was really like the first time he had gone there, but he said he was still "very honored" to visit the Asian country.

From 1950 to 1953 the Korean War waged on.

Rodman, through tears, said he received death threats for meeting the North Korean dictator. During the 1990s, the United States suspended, and later canceled, an exercise known as Team Spirit as they attempted to persuade North Korea to allow inspections of its nuclear facilities.

There are also annual springtime drills.

Rodman returned to North Korea again in September 2013, when he held Kim's baby daughter, and once more in December 2013, when he trained North Korean basketball players for an exhibition game to be held on January 8, 2014, Kim's birthday.

"The core of the US-South Korea alliance is the US troops stationed in South Korea and the joint U.S. Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go to", tweeted Trump.
