Donald Trump wants his ‘people’ to be like Kim’s ‘people’

President Donald Trump reportedly gave North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a "direct" phone number following their landmark meeting in Singapore.

President Vladimir Putin on Thursday conveyed to a senior North Korean official an invitation for Kim Jong Un to visit Russian Federation as he praised the results of his summit with Donald Trump.

"I'm kidding. You don't understand sarcasm", he said.

In an off-the-cuff interview on the White House lawn, the United States president also "referred to Federal Bureau of Investigation leadership as "scum", denied rumours his wife Melania underwent facelift surgery, and suggested former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey should go to prison", the Daily Beast reports. "I'm going to be actually calling North Korea", Mr. Trump he said.

According to Trump, the two leaders privately discussed human rights and Kim reacted "very well".

President Donald Trump says North Korea has started returning the remains of US soldiers missing during the Korean War.

Mr Song said the two allies should be "flexible" about how much military pressure they put on the North, the ministry said, adding that the US and South Korea would hold further discussions soon.

Around 8 a.m. on Friday, Trump tweeted that the morning talk show was on the White House front lawn.

"I have solved that problem", Trump told reporters.

Manufacturing sector GVA (gross value addition) grew at 9.1 per cent in fourth quarter, up from 6.1 per cent year ago. With growth proving robust and prices on the rise, the Reserve Bank of India may change its policy stance next week.

"We're going to have a very strong verification process", Trump told reporters at the White House media scrum. "I call them war games", he said.

He went on to say that when Kim speaks, "his people sit up at attention". If you can do that at 27 years old, I mean that's one in 10,000 that could do that.

During the Singapore summit, Kim reaffirmed the North's commitment to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

I want to thank Chairman Kim for taking the first bold step toward a bright new future for his people.

The Global Times, an influential Chinese state-run newspaper, said in an editorial that the time was right to consider "an appropriate reduction of the sanctions" against North Korea.

He also said the meeting with Mr Kim was important.

"We signed a very good document", he added.

'And now we're well on our way to get denuclearization.

Mr. Trump on Friday also said Michael Cohen is no longer his lawyer, although he didn't elaborate on that much. But given Mr. Kim's declaration that the [the two leaders] had a "historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind" and that "the world will see a major change", things will perhaps be different this time around!
