Trump Wants to Be Treated Like North Korea Chief Kim Jong

Washington has said that, at Abe's request, Trump brought up the Japanese abduction issue at his summit meeting with Kim on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump says in a video message defending his nuclear agreement with North Korea's Kim Jong Un that he must pursue a chance to avert nuclear conflict "at all costs".

When Trump said the last line, he pointed towards the White House, which could suggest that he was referring to his staff. Trump later told CNN he was "kidding".

"I think I did the country a tremendous favor by firing him", said Trump.

North Korea has perpetuated human rights abuses for decades.

"You know why? Because I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family", Trump responded.

Talks have swirled since Mr Trump unilaterally announced that the U.S. would halt war games as long as it is negotiating "in good faith" with North Korea.

Trump walks to an interview on the North Lawn of the White House on Friday.


About half an hour later, Fox News notified reporters that Trump was about to appear on the show.

"I'm convinced that our alliance commitments to South Korea remain ironclad and have not changed", he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Trump repeated his freakish claim that parents of Korean War veterans lobbied him during the 2016 campaign to bring the remains of their children home. "He speaks and his people sit up in attention".

The president was speaking to Fox News in an impromptu interview Friday morning, during which he unloaded on the FBI, China's trade policy, and former President Barack Obama's handling of North Korea.

They agreed to implement a 2004 agreement, in which the two sides' militaries vowed to work to prevent unexpected clash in the West Sea, a joint statement said. During a Tuesday interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Trump said Kim's "got a very good personality, he's amusing, and he's very, very smart".

But Trump recalled that when he came to office previous year his predecessor Barack Obama had warned that North Korea's growing missile and nuclear threat was the United States "most unsafe problem".

"We signed a very good document", he added. "I want my people to do the same". "I mean, I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done". Nobody thought we were going to get that.

During the summit, Kim and Trump exchanged views on the situation in Korea.
