THE FACTS: This much is true: North Korea announced the suspension of nuclear-weapons testing and testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles in April, to soften the ground for the diplomatic opening with South Korea and the U.S. North Korea has not conducted a missile test since November 28.
About one in five (21 per cent) say it was a success for the United States, and almost three in 10 (29 per cent) say it was a success for North Korea.
This is certainly not the pledge for the unilateral dismantling of North Korea's nuclear programme that the U.S. has always pushed for. And yesterday, the president told "Fox & Friends" he's the head of a country and, I mean, he's the strong head.
"Maybe Donald Trump is the kind of dry, deadpan humorist who does great material about how terrific dictators are - but if that's the case, he should wait until he retires as president to start breaking out that particular part of his act", Litt said.
Sweeping exaggerations about policy efficacy has become a sticking point of the Trump administration and based on this report, that hasn't changed, even on the worldwide stage.
Facing questions about his public embrace of Kim and the North Korean's autocratic leadership style - including what Trump said was a joke about the obedience of the autocratic Kim's advisers - the president said he was doing what is necessary for peace. The North Korean leader starves many of his citizens, sentences opponents to labor camps and executes people he perceives as threats to his power, including assassinating family members.
The Trump presidential campaign has also benefited from embarrassing disclosures in hacked emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton's campaign staff and others.
The paper did add, though, that the lack of any details or timetable on the actual dismantling of North Korea's nuclear capabilities was "somewhat unfortunate". "If that changes, then we have to think differently".
Still, many people on Twitter and beyond found the comment disconcerting, given North Korea's human rights violations and prison camps. "Everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", Trump tweeted. "And - and what does everybody say about Trump?"
But the widely anticipated Trump-Kim meeting on Tuesday left them with new anxieties.
"It's a first, so I think it's encouraging". I met. I met, We met, we had great chemistry.
But it is important to note that Trump's rationale was to scrap the war games, not because they offend and worry the DPRK - but, as he himself stated to the media, because they cost a lot of money.
There is a possibility Abe could visit Pyongyang in August, or meet with Kim in September at the annual Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, according to South Korean network Chosun TV.
One of the men who knows Donald Trump as well as anyone, said on MSNBC on Saturday that Trump's admiration for North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un is a tip-off that he would deeply enjoy being a murderous despot if given a chance.
