GOP senator on Trump-Kim summit: It's not a pretty sight

Yesterday ahead of President Trump's meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, NBC News reported the issue of human rights would not be discussed at the summit as an issue.

"We don't know what happened to him to cause that brain damage", Sammarco has said.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says she was "cautiously optimistic" about yesterday's historic summit.

The Korean Central News Agency and the Korean Central Television reported Monday that Kim departed from Pyongyang on Sunday morning via a Chinese chartered airplane to hold a summit with his US counterpart in Singapore.

"Building upon the agreement reached today, we will take a new path going forward".

Complete denuclearisation must mean the irreversible dismantlement of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

"We're not there yet", he said.

"At the same time, there needs to be a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to resolve North Korea's reasonable security concerns", he added. "The proposal for a declaration ending the war was just an attempt to speed up the denuclearisation process by North Korea", Chung said. Perhaps Trump wasn't the one people expected to be making peace, but Americans think this is the best strategy to take.

Cindy and her husband Fred Warmbier have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against North Korea, saying its government tortured and killed their son. That deal reportedly includes a commitment to a "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula aimed at establishing a "peace regime".

Meanwhile at the Pentagon, officials ducked in and out of meetings to discuss what would amount to an epic shift in how the United States military has been postured in South Korea for decades.

"So far, the Korean peninsula issues are developing mostly in the direction China is hoping for - and after the Kim-Trump summit in Singapore, China's role will definitely be bigger".

Mr Trump said he had formed a "special bond" with Mr Kim, and would "absolutely" invite him to Washington. You can see that the country has great beaches "whenever they're exploding their cannons into the ocean", said Trump.

There were plenty of smiles for the pair during the day. "The world will see a major change".

I think, suspending military exercises is the one thing the USA can rather un-problematically do in order to get concessions from North Korea, because lifting sanctions, at this point, before North Korea moves forward toward denuclearization, will encounter a lot of resistance from other people in the American political system.
