Iran Urges North Korea to ‘Keep Vigilant’ When Dealing with Trump

Secretary of State: NYT Report is Mistaken, President Trump is Prepared for Summit Donald Trump says his saber-rattling brought Kim Jong-un to the bargaining table

During an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity following the President's historic summit in Singapore Tuesday, Trump weighed in on his harsh rhetoric surrounding the Korean leader; saying he "hated" calling Kim Jong Un "Rocket Man" but "had no choice".

"The sanctions will come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor", Trump said in Singapore after his summit with Kim.

Trump and Kim met privately from 9:05am local time for 48 minutes flanked only by their translators, then broke for a wider bilateral meeting with aides, a meeting expected to last 90 minutes, leading into lunch at 11:30am (3:30 GMT). "The world will see a major change".

"His country has to be de-nuked and he understood that, he fully understood that, he didn't fight it", Trump said.

It may have also opened the door to Trump Towers Pyongyang.

Trump and Kim's joint pledge to work toward "complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula" was widely interpreted as failing to convince North Korea to accept Washington's definition that calls for Pyongyang to get rid of its arsenal.

DPRK stands for North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. How bad is that, right?

His statement follows a report from the New York Times, which criticized the White House for lacking a scientific advisory team.




USA officials and the North Korean state news agency struck a hopeful tone as the meeting approached, while negotiators from both countries met privately in the last hours to iron out agreements, such as over the definition of denuclearisation and the terms under which Pyongyang might agree to dismantle its nuclear arsenal. He said they will "probably need another meeting". We know where it is because of the heat.' It's incredible the equipment we have, to be honest with you.

But, with the summit ending only with the signing of a statement of intent and offering no timetable for action, questions remained about whether the meeting has produced enough results to boost his global image and domestic standing over the longer term. "Kim Jong Un should not receive a dime of relief until he fully and verifiably denuclearizes".

North Korea was told that Trump would 'provide security guarantees, ' with both sides agreeing that the meeting was an 'epochal event'.

But others point out that there would be little good to come from the USA president publicly bashing Kim while attempting diplomacy, and suggest that this is Trump's way of buttering up the brutal dictator.

"We hope that the two countries' highest leaders can dispel interference, establish mutual trust, overcome difficulties and can reach a basic consensus on promoting and achieving the denuclearisation of the peninsula and promoting and establishing a peace mechanism for the peninsula", Wang told reporters.

Strossen draws attention to the fact that prohibitions of "hate speech" are characterized by unavoidable vagueness and overbreadth.

Oh, and Dennis Rodman was there. Specific to laws about speech, vagueness "inevitably deters people from engaging in constitutionally protected speech".
