"I actually do have a little gift for him but you'll find out what that gift is when I give him", Trump said.

South Korea has suspended its summertime civil defence drills aimed at preparing against a North Korean attack to keep alive a positive atmosphere for nuclear diplomacy with the North.

"They didn't give it".

"Just now you said that some people in the United States associated the inconsistency of the statements made by the DPRK and the U.S. after their high-level meeting with China's role in the Korean Peninsula issue", she noted.

The professor urged Trump not to offset his diplomatic efforts after the Singapore summit, saying he should next persuade his hawkish aides to come up with a feasible approach on "full denuclearization" - one that differs from the past complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement (CVID) of North Korea's nuclear programs.

He praised officials of the county, which is close to Mount Paektu, the spiritual home of the Korean people and claimed by Pyongyang's propaganda to be the actual birthplace of his father and predecessor Kim Jong Il. "But, it seems that the US misunderstood our goodwill and patience".

Pompeo insisted the talks were making progress but as soon as he left, the North's foreign ministry berated him over his "unilateral and gangster-like" demands and for offering no constructive steps on the United States side.

Since the summit, Trump has taken to praising Kim.

The canceled Ulchi Freedom Guardian joint military exercise with South Korea this summer would have cost the US about $14 million, according to the Pentagon. He repeated that the United States would not push for any sanctions relief until after North Korea proved its nuclear program no longer existed and could not be rehabilitated.

"If those requests were "gangster-like" then the world is a gangster, because there was a unanimous decision at the U.N. Security Council about what needs to be achieved", Pompeo told reporters in Tokyo, his next stop after Pyongyang.

On Monday, Trump addressed the dispute on Twitter.

According to Chosun Ilbo, Kim brought up the "rocket man" moniker during the summit, and Trump asked Kim if he knew the song to which Trump was referring, but Kim answered that he didn't.
