Kim Jong-un opts for potato farm visit over Mike Pompeo meeting

The president says he believes the North Korean leader wants to denuclearize, and that he "trusts" him. Trump tweeted last September.

"I have it for him".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill, Dec. 6, 2017, in Washington.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he does, in fact, plan to give North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a CD with the Elton John hit "Rocket Man", as well as another mystery gift "at a certain period".

"This is totally baseless".

The yen is seemingly oblivious to this deterioration in Korean peninsula discussion. What happened was the Trump administration is divided on its approach toward the procedures of denuclearization. The two held a historic summit in Singapore on June 12. "But, it seems that the USA misunderstood our goodwill and patience".

Pyongyang has already sent back the remains of 200 US troops, and the director of a USA defense agency said he is hopeful improved relations with North Korea will result in more recoveries.

Another Weibo user wrote "decapitation operations should be next carried out".

Instead, North Korea appears as though it's conducting business as usual.

That's because Pyongyang can only look to China, now its major trade partner, for economic gains in exchange for any progress of its denuclearization, the professor said.

North Korea leader Kim Jung Un has invited Chinese President Xi Jinping to visit Pyongyang in September for National Day celebrations in a bid to strengthen economic ties.

KCNA, the official North Korean news agency, put out several detailed reports about Kim's trip, according to multiple reports.

"Kim has played Trump like a Stradivarius. That is, the North won't terminate nuclear programs without any economic gains", Tsai said.

Trump faced a backlash for scrapping the drills, with critics saying he gave in too readily to Kim's request to halt the exercises while getting little in terms of tangible commitments from Pyongyang in return.

Warner highlighted the June 12 summit document from Mr. Trump and Kim in which Kim reaffirmed his commitment towards complete denuclearization, Pompeo's comment earlier this week that the USA had "detailed, substantive" conversations about total denuclearization, and Mr. Trump's tweet after the summit in Singapore declaring "there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea".

On Monday, Trump addressed the dispute on Twitter.

The city was a hub for a project involving the transport of Russian coal to South Korea through the Rajin-Hasan Railway that runs through North Korea.

According to Chosun Ilbo, Kim brought up the "rocket man" moniker during the summit, and Trump asked Kim if he knew the song to which Trump was referring, but Kim answered that he didn't.
