Americans have long hoped for a peaceful denuclearization of North Korea

'Very Disappointing': Ex-CIA Deputy Chief Nails Why Prior Agreements with NK Were 'Stronger' And 'More Encompassing' than Trump's

President Trump promised that the USA will stop all "war games" on the Korean peninsula if North Korea's Kim Jong Un will start the process of denuclearization-a process Trump expects Kim to get on "very quickly" after their historic meeting in Singapore today.

Is it the first step towards the opening up of one of the world's most reclusive regimes?

"So I think the rhetoric - I hated to do it".

He called Warmbier's death "brutal", but noted that "a lot of people started to focus on what was going on including North Korea".

"Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a long time in my life".

After assuming power, Kim Jong Un had his uncle executed by firing squad and his half-brother killed with a nerve agent in an airport in Malaysia.

The strategic insights of game theory experts like Thomas Schelling that shaped deterrence remain relevant as Trump constantly piled the pressure on Kim through a range of threats, from the ones he acted on like tough sanctions and others like strikes on North Korean facilities that he didn't.

The Trump-Kim summit "opened the door to ending seven decades of hostility between the two countries", says The New York Times in a live briefing on all the nitty gritty details.

The Commander-in-Chief spoke with Hannity just hours after his face-to-face meeting with Kim Jong Un; explaining his use of heated language when describing the communist leader, whom he referred to at the United Nations as a little "Rocket Man".

Cindy and her husband Fred Warmbier have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against North Korea, saying its government tortured and killed their son.

Forced to make what his parents said was a "false confession", he was sentenced to 15 years' hard labor.

The Wyoming, Ohio, native was in North Korea with a tour group when he was detained for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from a hotel.

Warmbier was evacuated in a coma on June 13, 2017, and returned home to his family in Cincinnati.

"I mean, this is what we have, and this is where we are, and I can only tell you from my experience, and I met him, I've spoken with him, and I've met him", Trump said.

He was taken straight from Lunken Airport to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he died six days later.
