President said that he and Kim hold a mutual trust for each other.
“He trust me, I believe, I really do,” Trump told ABC News. “I mean, he said openly, and he said it to a couple of reporters that were with him that he knows that no other president every could have done this.”
“He knows who we had in front of me. He said no other president could have done this,” Trump continued, according to The Hill. “I think he trusts me, and I trust him.”
President Trump’s words are unprecedented, considering that the two nations are still at war, and after only a year ago Trump and Kim exchanged bellicose rhetoric that seemed to edge the nations toward the brink of a catastrophe.
Of his words last summer, Trump said that “without the rhetoric we wouldn’t have been here.”
“So I think the rhetoric, I hated to do it, sometimes I felt foolish doing it, but we had no choice,” said Trump.
The talks lasted about five hours where President Trump and Jong Un shook hands together before the press and sat across from each other while they signed the agreement. Several talks were held throughout the day. President Trump said afterward that he felt the talks went well.
“We both want to do something. We both are going to do something. And we have developed a very special bond,” he said at the conclusion of his landmark summit, according to CNN. “People are going to be very impressed. People are going to be very happy.”
The document that he and Kim signed stated the North Korean leader “reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
In exchange, Trump said that he would agree to provide “security guarantees” to North Korea. One of the other pledges that Trump made was to stop joint military exercises with South Korea. Trump also said that Kim agreed to destroy a “major” missile testing site. No further details about it were specified.
Trump told Fox News afterward that he believed the process of denuclearization is “really moving rapidly.”
“I just think that we are now going to start the process of denuclearization of North Korea, and I believe that he’s going back and will start it virtually immediately – and he’s already indicated that and you look at what he’s done,” said Trump.
