North Korea Summit: Best Donald Trump & Kim Jong-un Memes

Going into the historic Singapore summit, it was quite well-known that President Trump eschews briefing notes and lectures from his aides.

"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", Trump tweeted as he arrived back in Washington.

We want to end this crisis in North Korea.

"As expected, coverage of Kim summit with Donald Trump is plastered across first four pages of North Korea's main Rodong Sinmun".

Trump was also optimistic about the progress they achieved, stating, "We are going to take care of a very big and very unsafe problem for the world".

After returning to the White House Wednesday, Trump also defended his decision to halt the joint military exercises with South Korea, which he called "war games" - a term used by Pyongyang - arguing on Twitter that the U.S. will "save a fortune". So, the president made some concessions.

It devoted half of its six pages to the meeting and splashed 33 photos of Kim and Trump shaking hands, attending a working lunch and sitting down to sign the agreement to denuclearize on the cover and on the inside pages.


However, there was no mention of the previous USA aim of "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" from Pyongyang.

Referring to Kim Jong Un, Trump said: "His country does love him".

In another political win for President Xi Jinping, the declaration was effectively a tacit acceptance of the "freeze for freeze" proposal pushed by Beijing a halt to both US-South Korea joint drills and the North's weapons tests.

But the future remains uncertain - the USA and North Korea did not reach any agreement on the details of how to achieve or verify that denuclearization.

The welcome from Japan was conspicuously less effusive than from other countries, with Tokyo under direct threat from North Korean missiles and reliant on the U.S. for its defence. On Wednesday morning, he took to Twitter to claim there was "no longer" a nuclear threat posed by the North Korean regime.

The decision to publish extensive coverage of the summit seems to reflect North Korea's desire to portray itself to citizens as a player on the global stage, and is considered by some to be a propaganda coup.
