On the joint U.S.
"President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S. -DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula", the leaders said in a joint statement.
Christopher Hill, chief USA negotiator with North Korea in the George W. Bush administration, suggested in an interview that it's "a little premature" for Trump to say Kim is someone the US can trust. US officials said it was unclear what types of training involving USA and South Korean troops might cross into Trump's now forbidden zone of "war games".
Trump's announcement minutes after the summit's conclusion that he would halt the "provocative" joint military drills were a shock to South Korea and caught much of the US military off guard, too.

Mr. Trump downplayed Kim's actions, suggesting Kim isn't alone in that. She reported in April on the first summit between North and South Korea in a decade, and then on Trump's meeting with Kim.
"So far United States administrations tended to focus on a narrowly defined military-security deal instead of trying to tackle the root cause of North Korea problem, which is a high level of mutual distrust", he said on Bloomberg Television.
The leaders signed a statement pledging to establish a new relationship.
Despite Pompeo's insistence that sanctions would hold until denuclearization occurred, he offered few details on how the complex process of complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization would be implemented.
"I find that question insulting and ridiculous and, frankly, ludicrous", Pompeo responded when asked about the lack of that wording in the agreement.
