Trump searches for credit on North Korea nuclear deal

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".

"Hey, he's the head of a country, and I mean, he's the strong head - don't let anyone think anything different", Trump said during an interview on Friday on Fox and Friends.

The writer also suggested the president had the "inner sense of emptiness" and "sociopathy" to become a dictator.

"A reporter told Trump that 'war games" was the way North Korea describes the exercises.

"A really fantastic meeting. I want to have a good relationship with many other countries", the president added. Top of the line.

Here, with video, are five of Trump's most brazen falsehoods and weird statements from Friday morning's spontaneous press "conference".

North Korea's Kim Jong Un shakes hands with US President Donald Trump during their summit meeting in Singapore on 12 June 2018.

Afghan Taliban say ceasefire will not be extended, fighting to resume
In another part of the city, Afghan interior minister Wais Ahmad Barmak greeted the Taliban and wished them a happy Eid. The explosion occurred in the eastern province of Nangarhar around 5:15 p.m. local time, according to CNN .

"I want my people to do the same", Trump said, before joking about the fate of several North Korean generals.

Trump continued to admit that when "he speaks and his people sit up at attention".

It would be good for the world if the president is right when he tweets, "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea". Trump talks directly to the camera and praises his talks with Kim as "open, honest, direct and very, very productive".

But when he was pressed on the North Korea issue by CBS News reporter Weija Jiang, Trump told her to "be quiet" and called her "obnoxious", according to a Yahoo! I guess they're using that as another sound bite. I can now call him.

"I have a great relationship with Angela Merkel of Germany, but the Fake News Media only shows the bad photos (implying anger) of negotiating an agreement - where I am asking for things that no other American President would ask for!"

After his interview with the friendly Fox host, Trump was pressed by reporters about Kim's record of human rights atrocities and why he had not more forcefully challenged the North Korean dictator. "I'm kidding. You don't understand sarcasm", Trump said. In also expressing a desire to eventually remove the 28,500 American troops stationed on the peninsula, Mr Trump's shift could overturn longstanding USA policy in Asia and has received a cool reception from Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

While claiming that, "I hate the children being taken away", Trump blamed his administration's policy of separating children at the Mexico border from their parents - a policy which, according to a CNN report, has already resulted in 2,000 children being torn from their families and placed in detention facilities - on Democrats, calling it a "a Democratic law".
