Trump was questioned about the historic summit as he left Singapore and interviewer Bret Baier put it to the President that Kim was "a killer" who was 'executing people'.

Just over half of all Americans say they approve of how President Donald Trump has handled North Korea, but only a quarter think that his summit this week with Kim Jong Un will lead to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Wednesday.

Current and former U.S. defence officials expressed concern at the possibility that the United States would unilaterally halt military exercises without an explicit concession from North Korea that lowers the threat from Pyongyang. Already, North Korea has criticized the US and South Korea's military drills, saying they're not helpful for peace talks. "So he's a very smart guy, he's a great negotiator, but I think we understand each other".

When questioned on the wording of the statement, Pompeo said Wednesday that Trump's intention was to allow the USA the opportunity to pursue further productive conversations on the issue with Pyongyang.

There has been harsh criticism from analysts across the region and across the world of the declaration, which, while wide ranging, is entirely devoid of concrete commitments, timelines or even details about North Korean denuclearization.

Reportedly, neither Seoul nor US Forces Korea had been informed in advance of the cancellation of the drills - a long-standing North Korean demand.

US officials said it was unclear what type of training involving USA and South Korean troops might now be stopped because of Trump's order to end the "war games", but the massive annual exercises that bring in nuclear-capable ships and warplanes from Guam and other US bases in the region will likely end.

He thanked Moon, who has met with Kim twice since April, for his mediation between North Korea and the United States, saying that if it had not been for Moon's effort, the talks between Trump and Kim would not have been possible.

"It is something that (North Korea) very much appreciated".

"The world should rest assured the United States, Republic of Korea and Japan remain committed to achieve complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea", he said.

With a time lag that suggests a great deal of care and thought went into the final product, the North's state-run television aired its first videos and photos of the summit on Thursday, two days after the event and a full day after Kim returned home to Pyongyang, the capital. -North Korea relations and to recover the remains of prisoners of war and military members missing in action.

Trump quickly took North Korea's side on bilateral military issues involving South Korea.

Baier moved on, reminding Trump that, before flying to Singapore to meet with Kim, "the G7 got a little wacky".

China, Germany and the United States must all acknowledge that, even if Kim is a dictator, the 35-year-old is not insane.

Trump's claim that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat is questionable considering Pyongyang's significant weapons arsenal.

He is known to have stopped over at airbases in Guam and Hawaii to encourage USA forces and is expected to arrive at the White House sometime Wednesday morning.

In an interview that was taped aboard Air Force One while Trump was flying back to the United States from Singapore, he was pressed by Fox News's Bret Baier on Kim's human rights record. He said the USA aims to achieve "major disarmament" by the end of Trump's first term.

Sceptics of how much the meeting achieved pointed to the North Korean leadership's long-held view that nuclear weapons are a bulwark against what it fears are USA plans to overthrow it and unite the Korean peninsula. -South Korean drills was met with concern. "New history has been made, and China welcomes and supports it", said Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China's foreign ministry. The next military exercise is scheduled for August, and in years past, has drawn thousands of troops from the U.S., South Korea and other countries. He said he planned to continue sharing the view with Washington and Seoul.
