North Korean state media highlighted President Donald Trump's concessions on war games, while lauding the Singapore summit with their leader Kim Jong Un and the US president, Reuters reported Tuesday.
A day after his historic nuclear summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jon Un in Singapore, Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday saying the meeting was a "very positive experience" and "everyone can feel much safer than the day I took office".
In one tweet, Trump said that North Korea is no longer the United States' most risky problem, as President Barack Obama had characterized it upon leaving office - and he said Americans could "sleep well tonight!"
Despite the lack of detail, or binding terms in the joint statement agreed with Kim - which has alarmed a majority of observers of the nuclear standoff - Trump struck a resolutely bullish tone.
North Korean media praises Trump-Kim summit as 'meeting of the century'
President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most risky problem. Referring to Kim Jong Un , Trump said: "His country does love him".
At a news conference in Singapore after almost five hours of talks there with Kim, Trump said he "knows for a fact" that North Korea is serious about denuclearization this time and that Kim "wants to do the right thing".
President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018. "No longer - sleep well tonight!"
A large contingent of Democrats criticized the president and his staff for tentatively granting a number of concessions to the North Koreans, including a pause on military exercises in South Korea and even meeting with Kim in the first place to lend his leadership legitimacy on the worldwide stage. Trump's total sidelining of North Korea's infamous human rights abuses has also caused concern. "He had a lot to do with us being here today", Trump said. "I think they will be continued for a while".
After the Singapore summit ended on Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to Seoul to confer with South Korean officials.
Malcom Nance, an author and former intelligence expert in the U.S. Navy, was responding to Trump's early morning declaration on Wednesday.

"The world will see a major change".

The summit, the first between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader, was in stark contrast to a flurry of North Korean nuclear and missile tests and angry exchanges of insults between Mr Trump and Mr Kim a year ago that fuelled worries about war.
