President Donald Trump defended his summit meeting Kim Jong-un and his statements vouching for the North Korean dictator's love of his people, saying his actions potentially saved millions of lives.

Pressed by a reporter about those remarks moments later, Mr. Trump said he was "kidding". "And I mean, he is the strong head", Trump said during a "Fox & Friends" interview.

President Donald Trump admires how North Korean President Kim Jong-un is deferentially treated by his citizens. The program, narrated by North Korea's most famous newscaster, Ri Chun-hee, aired on state-run television two days after the summit in Singapore and a full day after Kim returned home to his country's capital, Pyongyang.

A senior Blue House official told local reporters on condition of anonymity that although nothing has been decided yet, whether to halt the South Korea-U.S. war games would be announced soon or in the near future through close consultations between Seoul and Washington. "I gave him a very direct number". I can call him. North Korean news, which is entirely state-run, exclusively consists of statements that shine a positive light on Kim and the country.

"I met a general". During a Tuesday interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Trump said Kim's "got a very good personality, he's amusing, and he's very, very smart". "I want my people to do the same", he added.

In the interaction, Kim is seen introducing Trump to a North Korean general.

Malta said the rescue operations happened in worldwide waters off Libya and were coordinated by Italy. Conte said he would discuss the situation further with Salvini and other ministers on Monday evening.

"It's a common courtesy when a military official from another government salutes, that you return that", said Sarah Sanders, White House press secretary, at a briefing.

The June 12 summit paved the way for starting a peace process on the peninsula, with the USA pledging a security guarantee in exchange for North Korea's denuclearization.

Trump later told reporters that he was joking, stating how "you don't understand sarcasm".

"We can think about that and we can probably reduce the scale of the military exercises or probably we will stop this time, only once, deployment of strategic assets, which means strategic bombers and aircraft, fighters".

Since the summit, Trump has sought to label the outcome as a decisive diplomatic victory, but experts say there's still a long way to go.

Defending the deal "where we get everything", Mr Trump claimed that he has "largely solved" the North Korean nuclear problem.
