AFP Trump leaves hotel for historic summit with Kim

At times, the video speaks to Kim directly, suggesting he could make a choice that would open North Korea up to new investment and step into a starring role in a moment in history with Trump.

The Southeast Asian city state is hosting the unprecedented summit at Sentosa Island's Capella Hotel. "Our Country's biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!" Lawmakers, analysts and allies have hailed the effort but questioned the substance of what was achieved.

Air Force One touched down at Joint Base Andrews early Wednesday morning, completing the president's marathon trip to Asia for talks with the North Korean leader.

Trump's Tuesday meeting with Kim produced a wave of U.S. concessions in exchange for vague, nonbinding promises from North Korea, but it did make nuclear war all but inconceivable at the present moment. "North Korea has great potential for the future!".

Trump and Kim were returning to their respective strongholds following the talks - but to far different receptions.

"North Korea is a real and present threat", Schiff said in a tweet. "So is a dangerously naive president", Schiff said.

There was news from the summit, Colbert said. But the two countries didn't nail down how and when the North might denuclearize or shed light on the unspecified "protections" Trump pledged to Kim and his government.

North Korean state media lauded the summit as a resounding success, highlighting concessions made by the U.S. president.

There was no word immediately after the Trump-Kim meeting of any change in their plans to return home on June 13. "Kim Jong Un got respect on the world stage, an end to military exercises between the United States and South Korea, and no timeline to give up nuclear weapons or human rights abuses. No longer - sleep well tonight!" the president wrote. In agreeing to the summit, Trump risked granting Kim his long-sought recognition on the world stage in hopes of ending the North's nuclear program.

In a further tweet on Wednesday, President Trump hit out at criticism of his summit in some United States media, dubbing it "Fake News". "500 days ago they would have "begged" for this deal-looked like war would break out", Trump tweeted.

Even Kim described the Singapore summit seemed like something from science fiction, while Trump, after meeting Kim and spending just 38 minutes with him, announced they had developed a "special bond".

Speaking in South Korea, where he discussed the outcome of the summit, Secretary Pompeo said there was still "a great deal of work to do" with North Korea.

"I have no idea" whether Trump secured anything of substance, said Corker, the retiring chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The report said they "celebrated" Kim "on the success of the summit".

Critics pointed to the lack of specifics in the agreement while questioning whether Trump gave up too much while securing too little in return during his several hours of talks with Kim in what was the first meeting between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader. "I mean, I may stand before you in six months and say, 'Hey, I was wrong.' I don't know that I'll ever admit that, but I'll find some kind of an excuse".
