As part of his effort to get dictator Kim Jong Un to agree to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump showed him a video that presented all the possibilities for North Korea’s future if sanctions come off.
In addition to the benefits economic development and innovative technologies would bring to the Hermit Kingdom, Trump also emphasized what developing the country’s beaches could do for the nation.
President Trump, on the heels of his historic summit with Kim Jong Un, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he believes the North Korean leader will begin to work toward dismantling his country’s nuclear program “virtually immediately.”
The president left Singapore after the two leaders signed a document stating Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."
Trump said at a press conference that he will be ending joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea. He also said Kim agreed to destroy a “major” missile testing site, but did not offer specific details.
“His country has to be de-nuked and he understood that, he fully understood that, he didn’t fight it,” Trump said.
Mara Gay, an editorial board member for The New York Times, suggested Monday on MSNBC that the meeting between North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and President Trump exists to distract from the Russia investigation.

It really is sad. Even a year ago, could you imagine that "liberals" would be aghast at the thought that we're about to have peace with an enemy that's been around for 60 years now?
She argued that many in the press have a "pathological" personal loathing for Trump that's been exacerbated by the fact that he's having successes and following through on campaign promises.
The left, so blinded by its ideology and consumed with hate toward President Trump, refuses to acknowledge the peace and prosperity he’s bringing to America and the world.
The summit is nothing more than a glorified photo-op, but optics count. These flag-heavy photos will greatly extend the influence and the power of both these men – particularly Trump, who will be credited with having tamed a small but vicious beast.
Anyone else feel slightly uneasy as if this is a modern day Munich Conference moment where both leaders can go home and claim “peace in our time” before ending up going to war because the other side wasn’t playing by the rules they’d agreed on? Rather than a peace conference, this could well be the prelude to war that neither side will win.
So sad to see Trump the POTUS showing more affection and genuine handshake to North Korea than to his own allies like Canada and Germany. Have now lost all respect for the man. I shudder for all our democracies when the so called leader of the free world shows more love for a dictator.
What plenty of people suggested would happen is that despite all the pre-summit promises that nothing much would happen and nothing much has happened. You can blame Trump - he promised a lot and has delivered little. A nice photo-op though.
Former CIA chief of staff Jeremy Bash slammed the summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday, saying it was disgusting to see the U.S. flag alongside that from the "despotic regime" of Pyongyang. "A summit is not an accomplishment for the American president," Bash told MSNBC's Brian Williams. "It is a major accomplishment for Kim Jong Un. In fact, the spectacle of seeing the American flags along with the [North Korean] flags as the backdrop for that handshake is really jarring, actually, to see, to witness. In fact, I would say it's somewhat disgusting. It is actually a debasement of the American flag," he continued.

So, do you all think maybe with the ousting of MSM being corrupt and fearmongering to the masses that the global conciseness has change to a more positive outlook causing the start of positive change within the world? Such as the pending new diplomacy that the U.S. and SK are forging with NK and the possible denuclearization of NK.
I mean a year and a half ago I could not believe how many ppl where suggesting just nuking NK. It blew my mind.
