Kim Jong Un commits to ‘complete denuclearization’ after meeting with Trump

The US President announced that he knew "a lot about airplanes" before adding they were "expensive" during his press conference following his summit meeting with the North Korean leader.

Ingraham did not expand further on her claim, but she did take to Twitter Tuesday morning to note the reactions of MSNBC hosts, interpreting their reactions to Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a shock.

"U.S. gives up one of our biggest negotiating chips - military exercises", tweeted Sen.

Fellow Republicans, however, could attempt to use the summit to bolster their contention that American voters should allow them to retain control of Congress in pivotal congressional elections in November.

The next scheduled major exercise, known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian and involving tens of thousands of troops, normally is held in August.

He also said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's Central Intelligence Agency background comes into play when understanding how Kim could react to the summit with President Trump. "We'll check it very strongly", he told reporters on Air Force One.

Trump even said he'd like to eventually close all US military operations on the peninsula.

In the wake of Trump's unexpected, nearly offhand comments to reporters, the Pentagon had nothing to say about the future of the war games. The Singapore summit proved a landmark victory for both.

Joint military drills between the United States and South Korea have long aggravated Kim's regime-the North Korean leader even threatened to withdraw from the Singapore summit following a two-week annual military exercise in May incorporating roughly 100 warplanes.

"The Department of Defense continues to work with the White House, the interagency, and our allies and partners on the way forward following the [Trump/Kim] summit".

The South Korean government also appeared caught off guard.

Despite all this, Trump's support from his right-wing political base remains strong, and his followers are likely to trumpet the outcome of the North Korea summit as the president achieving something his predecessors could not.

But Daniel Davis, a retired army lieutenant colonel and fellow at the Defense Priorities military think tank, said suspending the drills would have no short-term impact on US and South Korean military readiness.

As The Telegraph reported, President Donald Trump vowed to end war games with North Korea, pledging new history.

That was apparently the message delivered by Vice President Mike Pence to Senate Republicans during a private lunch earlier Tuesday, according to Sen.

"The US armed forces will in no way stop individual and collective training, the South Korean military will continue to train and prepare as they always have", he told AFP, adding that institutional knowledge from years of drills would be retained.

"It sounds there like he's parroting North Korean talking points", said host Nicolle Wallace, referencing the fact that Trump described the war games as "provocative" - exactly how North Korea had recently described them recently.
