President Trump praises Kim and says he’s ‘solved’ problems with North Korea

SBI to stop handling Iran oil payments from November imports to be hit

Speaking to reporters on the White House lawn, Trump said on June 15 that his predecessor, Barack Obama, had told him North Korea's nuclear weapons program was the "most risky problem" facing the United States.

"He is the strong head", Trump said of Kim during a surprise appearance on Fox News. "Don't let anyone think anything different", Trump continued.

Mr. Trump announced after his visit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that the joint military exercises or "war games" would be suspended while negotiations with North Korea are ongoing, a concession that drew skepticism from the president's critics.

Mr. Trump said sanctions will come off of North Korea soon, "when we can be sure there is no more nuclear" weapons.

"You don't understand sarcasm", he said to the press, after the interview.

According to human rights watchdog Amnesty International, North Korea has imprisoned an estimated 120,000 people based on political grounds across four separate camps dedicated to imprisoning political dissidents.

The White House said Thursday that Trump did mention human rights abuses when he met with Kim to discuss Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Trump wants the USA to treat him like North Korea treats Kim Jong Un. He noted that he gave Kim "a very direct number" and instructed him to "call me if he has any difficulties". "We get along very well", he said.

Trump walks to an interview with Fox News on the North Lawn of the White House on June 15. The president also touted North Korea's demolition of its nuclear test site at Punggye-ri, its suspension of ballistic missile tests, and its release of three U.S. hostages as victories for the US.

Trump later joked about Kim executing his own generals while dismissing controversy surrounding his salute for a North Korean general.

"I went there and gave him credibility - I think it's great to give him credibility".

"What did you mean just now when you said you wished Americans would sit up at attention?" a reporter asked.

Later, Trump unexpectedly made his way through a crowd of White House reporters and was asked about everything from Russian Federation to North Korea and China. Following drills previous year, the North fired ballistic missiles over Japan, triggering global alarm and ratcheting up a diplomatic war of words between Trump and Kim.
