Trump claims N. Korea no longer nuclear threat, tells Americans to "sleep well"

Pompeo also pushed back on criticism that the joint statement issued after the Tuesday summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un failed to include the terms "verifiable" and "irreversible" - two conditions Pompeo and other USA officials have repeatedly said are necessary for any deal.
After arriving back in the USA, the president also tweeted that "everybody can now feel much safer".
Many lawmakers from both parties, while unready to declare the summit a diplomatic victory or defeat, remained skeptical the USA could successfully negotiate a deal toward peace with Kim - but are letting the process play out.

"By the way, Korean stuffed cucumber is stuffed with Koreans - Kim is a monster".

In a series of tweets, Trump sought to take political credit for the summit but risked undermining the United States strategy in the region.
A senior South Korean defense ministry official said Tuesday that the South is trying to determine exactly what President Trump meant when he said that exercises would end. Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono is also heading to Seoul and is due to meet with Pompeo and his South Korean counterpart. Mr Pompeo, the former Central Intelligence Agency director, then plans to fly to Beijing to update the Chinese government on the talks. It has arguably gotten more brutal under the 34-year-old third current dictator, to whom Mr. Trump was so courteous and even complimentary in their Singapore meetings.
Instead, we're now accepting North Korea as nuclear armed, overlooking its horrific actions against its own people and celebrating its leader.
"All I can say is they want to make a deal".
About 29,000 USA soldiers are based in the South, under a security agreement reached after the war ended in 1953.
Washington has described the drills as defensive in nature, but Pyongyang says they are a rehearsal for invasion and has long called for them to end.
