"During our conversation, I emphasized the tremendous new prosperity, security, and opportunity that awaits North Korea when they denuclearise".
Trump has falsely claimed that this mission has been accomplished, telling reporters Friday: "He gave us the remains of our great heroes".
He argued he was saving a lot of money by stopping the exercises.
'You haven't had a firing. "If there's a chance at peace, if there's a chance to end the terrible threat of nuclear conflict, then we must pursue it at all costs", he said. But the president has fawned so much about Kim since their meeting you might wonder if he's simply flattering a man with nuclear missiles or exalting the kind of leader he truly admires.
Trump announced at the summit that the USA would be "stopping war games" on the Korean Peninsula amid ongoing talks with North Korea about denuclearization.
Nonetheless, in interviews immediately after the summit with George Stephanopoulos and Sean Hannity, Trump insisted that Kim - whom he praised as "a strong guy" with "a very good personality" who is "very strategic" and "very impressive" - could be trusted.
"I can't speak to that". I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement. "They have a great fervor".
"President Trump is trying to be a peacemaker", Steve Bannon said in an exclusive interview with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl on "This Week" Sunday.
He stated: "I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family. I want to have a good relationship with many countries".
On whether Kim could be invited to the White House, Trump said he was open to the idea. But he also maintained that the Trump-Kim meeting had reduced the chance of conflict even if it was only a "modest start". "Employees would get more money and we would get rid of Fake News for an extended period of time!" Nobody wants to report that, ' Trump said.
Putin said the meeting could take place during the Eastern Economic Forum in the city of Vladivostok in September this year, or can be organized separately.
And Trump, who declared on Twitter that North Korea is "no longer" a nuclear threat following the summit, told reporters he has "solved that problem. I can now call him", he said.
"Sleep well tonight", Trump wrote in a tweet last Wednesday.
The poll demonstrated major differences across party lines: 49% of Republicans called the summit a success for the USA, while 16% of independents and only 5% of Democrats said the same. "I call them 'war games.' I hated them from the day I came in..."
