Trump says his agreement with North Korea will be good for China

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

The agreement reached between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last week failed to lay out a timeline for the denuclearization of North Korea, or provide details of how the US would verify North Korea's compliance.

President Trump walks to an interview on the North Lawn of the White House on Friday.

President Donald Trump told reporters in an impromptu news conference on the White House lawn he had given North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a phone number to allow him to reach him directly. Don't let anyone think anything different.

Trump also said he would like Americans to "sit up at attention" when he speaks like North Koreans do for Kim. "I want my people to do the same".

Earlier this week, Trump was asked by Fox News' Bret Baier about the "killer" despot and how he can continue to say nice things about him despite all the bad things he has done. Officials have not verified reports that North Korea may have demolished a stand used for missile-ejection tests in May. "North Korea is the only country in the world that executes people for making unauthorized worldwide phone calls".

"The public still has a lot of questions about the North Korea situation that were not answered by this meeting", Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement. His favorite method of doing so, reportedly, is to publicly shoot them at point-blank range with an anti-aircraft gun.

Still, many people on Twitter and beyond found the comment disconcerting, given North Korea's human rights violations and prison camps.

SEC official: Ether is not a security
The SEC's announcement recognizes that Ether is treated differently now than a year ago, and should be regulated differently. If the SEC had decided differently, then exchanges and markets would likely have faced some serious regulation .

One way that you can end up being killed, tortured, or thrown in prison by being insufficiently deferential to Kim is by being Christian, which is considered a rebellion against both the communist doctrine of the country and the cult of personality around Kim himself. "North Korea has great potential for the future!"

And asked in a separate occasion about Kim's record on human rights, and why he had failed to challenge the leader on the topic, Trump told Fox and Friends: "He's the head of the country".

President Trump accomplished nothing in Singapore, if you want to be factual about it. I should have never inherited that.

It should not surprise us that Republicans defend Trump's performance, given that 80 to 90 percent of them still support Trump overall.

Since the summit, Trump has repeatedly heaped praise on the North Korean leader and touted the results of his meeting with Kim.

'You haven't had a firing. I met. I met, We met, we had great chemistry. But he also maintained that the Trump-Kim meeting had reduced the chance of conflict even if it was only a "modest start". U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, charged by Trump with leading follow-up negotiations, said on Wednesday the United States hoped to achieve "major disarmament" by North Korea within the next 2-1/2 years.

"I can't speak to that", he replied.
