    *👱🏼Trump-Kim🇰🇵 Meet :Press Conference Summary*

    Trump’s press conference lasted well over an hour. Here’s a summary of the key points:

    *👱🏼🇰🇵 Trump hailed his summit with Kim Jong-un as “very important event in world history” claiming Kim has given his “unwavering” commitment to denuclearization. *He claimed denuclearisation of North Korea’s “very substantial” nuclear arsenal could be achieved very quickly but gave few details or a specific timeframe.

    *👱🏼🇰🇵 International observers will be deployed to verify North Korea’s denuclearization, Trump insisted despite the lack of a commitment to this in the agreement the two leaders signed*. Trump said he looked forward to lifting sanctions once “nukes are no longer a factor”.

    *👱🏼🇰🇵 Trump agreed to stop US-South Korea war games.* He said they were provocative, inappropriate and very expensive.

    *👱🏼🇰🇵 North Korea has already demonstrated its commitment to denuclearisation by destroying a missile engine site, Trump claimed.* He also repeatedly praised North Korea’s participation in the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

    *👱🏼🇰🇵 Kim was praised for ushering in a “glorious new era of prosperity for his people”.* Trump said he trusted Kim, got on with him, and said he was a “very talented” negotiator, but denied that he saw Kim as his equal. He claimed that a US video of the summit would not be used by Kim for propaganda purposes.

    *👱🏼🇰🇵 Kim will be invited to the White House at the appropriate time, Trump said*. The president also agreed to travel to Pyongyang at the appropriate time.

    *👱🏼🇰🇵 North Korea’s human rights record was discussed at length during the talks, Trump claimed.* He said the 100,000 people in North Korean gulags would be among the big winners from the summit.
