At a news conference before leaving the Singapore summit, Trump also speculated on the long-term possibility of withdrawing the 28,500 US troops in Korea if the initial agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un leads to denuclearization and peace.
Washington and Seoul are security allies, with 28,500 United States troops stationed in the South to defend it from its neighbour which invaded in 1950.
And after Trump made a fat joke and showed Kim the inside of his limo, they signed their "historish agreement", he said.
North Korean state media broke form and featured photos of leader Kim Jong Un walking around Singapore and meeting with President Donald Trump in their latest editions.
That agreement heralds a new U.S.
The document promised "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" without detailing exactly what that would entail.
Trump's claim that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat is questionable considering Pyongyang's significant weapons arsenal.
The 75-year-old grandmother usually takes to the air for major announcements, including ebulliently reporting the news of North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear test last September. The leaders also offered lofty promises, with the American president pledged to handle a "very unsafe problem" and Kim forecasting "major change for the world".
"Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea", he continued in a second post.
"I have no idea" whether Trump secured anything of substance, said Corker, the retiring chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
He described the Kim-Trump face-to-face as "cordial and symbolic", a far cry from a year ago when the men were trading barbs and threatening nuclear conflict.
"I must have had just countless calls and letters and tweets, anything you can do - they want the remains of their sons back", he said. "And at a certain point when it's all complete I'd love to be there", he said.
"I'm going to leave the content of our discussions between the two parties, but one should heavily discount some things that are written in other places", Pompeo said.
At a news conference after the summit's conclusion, Trump, citing the "tremendous cost" and improved environment, said that he would also halt all joint military drills with South Korea.
There is already much debate about who is the biggest victor out of the meeting. In his media briefing in Singapore on Tuesday, Trump mentioned ending the drills, which he described - in language similar to that used by North Korea - as "provocative", saying it would save the the US money. Delegates were outlining specific goals for what the leaders should try to accomplish and multiple scenarios for resolving key issues, a senior U.S official said, adding that the meetings were also an ice breaker of sorts, allowing the teams to get better acquainted after decades of minimal contact between their nations.
The move - long demanded by Pyongyang - has been seen as a major concession to North Korea and appeared to take United States allies in the region by surprise.
Pyongyang has celebrated the summit as a great win for the country. Kim Jong Un, dressed in his familiar Mao suit, emerged from the left. He met for almost an hour with General Vincent Brooks, commander of US Forces Korea, at the air base before heading by motorcade to Seoul.
To probably even his own surprise, he got that and a whole lot more.
Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., a Trump advocate and fervent Iran deal foe, urged patience and sought to dispel suggestions that the president had unwisely plunged into a meeting with a dictator after having withdrawn from the accord with Tehran.
