President Trumpsaid Sunday agreeing to stop the "war games" during the North Korea summit was his idea because it's expensive as he slammed the media and Democrats for criticizing his negotiations with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-Un.
A year ago when North Korea was sending rockets over Japan and into the Pacific, President Trump warned Kim, the North Korean dictator, that there would be consequences for such war-like behavior.
Trump indicated a White House visit by Kim was possible: "Hey he's the head of a country", Trump said.
Trump was responding to criticism that he gave Kim the propaganda win of a summit without getting more concessions on denuclearization, and didn't lock in a plan to get there.
The summit meeting's critics in Japan, much like those in the United States, were disappointed that the joint statement signed by Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim lacked specific commitments by the North, such as a timeline or details about how it would actually go about giving up its weapons.
However, in a sign Seoul may be open to suspending drills, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday his government would need to be flexible when it came to applying military pressure on North Korea if it was honest about denuclearisation.
While Trump engaged in weeks of self-promoting followed by a round of self-congratulatory interviews and press conferences, the report suggests the deal amounted to little more than a showboat effort.
China, Japan, South Korea and Russian Federation should all be in favour of an agreement that denuclearises the peninsula, brings North Korea into the family of nations, and stabilises and enhances its economy.
And that flimsy piece of paper Trump signed guaranteed absolutely nothing and contained far weaker promises than those wrung out of North Korea by earlier administrations - promises, by the way, that the "very honorable" regime broke. True, we wondered why he gave Kim the meeting without extracting anything of substance in advance.
"What makes Trump's comments so disturbing is that they reveal a president who believes in projecting American power but not American values - he believes in might but not right", said Zegart, who co-authored with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a book about global insecurity, "Political Risk".
The paper said that without mutual respect of sovereignty, it is impossible to truly realize cooperation and exchanges and establish solid relations between countries. "It does not meet the minimum requirements in terms of what we expected them to do", Ambassador Joseph Y. Yun, the former special USA representative to North Korea, told CNN. I think Donald Trump needs to understand the difference there. He added: "If you're fair, when I came in, people thought we were probably going to war with North Korea".
And as to the military drills, Trump said he had wanted to halt them long before he traveled to Singapore to meet Kim.
"But I'm joking", he said, complaining about the reaction.
"We've legitimized a brutal dictator who's starved his own people", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor Tuesday.
Already, Mr. Trump's preoccupation with North Korea has diverted attention from Chinese actions that alarm its neighbours, most notably a military buildup on islands that China built in the South China Sea. "I gave him a very direct number".
"We have thousands of people who have asked for that - thousands and thousands of people", Trump said. Other issues related to nuclear weapons, including ballistic missiles, were not even mentioned. Meanwhile, U.S. leverage on North Korea is declining, as China and Russian Federation start to loosen sanctions.
