I have 'largely solved' North Korean nuclear problem, says Donald Trump

Twitter instantly reacted to Trump's statement, which some of his opponents in the #resistance viewed as proof of his dictatorial ambitions.

"The sequence will be different this time", the top U.S. diplomat told reporters at the joint press conference with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts in Seoul.

He also continued to bash former FBI Director James Comey, who was the subject of a report released Thursday by the Justice Department's inspector general.

However, Horowitz also concluded there was no evidence that Comey's conduct was politically motivated.

During the Fox & Friends interview, Steve Doocy didn't ask Trump to explain his remark about wanting to be treated like Kim, but instead immediately moved on to other topics.

"I have solved that problem.Now we're getting it memorialised and all but that problem is largely solved", Trump said.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said he wished people would "sit up at attention" for him like North Koreans do for their leader Kim Jong Un, a quip that sparked instant outrage on social media and cable news.

"[The statement] says [Kim] will denuclearize. I said, 'Why aren't we being reimbursed?" he said, responding to questions on the criticism he is facing on his decision to stop military exercises with South Korea.

All they said about me is, "You met". You haven't had a nuclear test in 8 ½ months.

The president gestured to the White House when he made the comment about "my people", implying that he was referring to those who report to him directly - not U.S. citizens as a whole.

Asked about who he would speak to on Sunday, Trump said: "Well, I'm going to speak to people in North Korea, and I'm going to speak to my people who are over in North Korea". "How can you do that?" "I want my people to do the same".

After his meeting with the despot Kim, Trump said the press was the United States' "biggest enemy".

Trump has said he trusts Kim to follow through as the two countries negotiate dismantling North Korea's nuclear program. What he was referring to was a joint statement, a page and a half in length, containing what appeared to be language extracted from previous statements negotiated by the North over the last two decades.

"I want to have a good relationship with North Korea", Trump said.

While Pyongyang reaffirmed its commitment to the "complete denuclearization of Korean Peninsula", Washington reportedly provided "security guarantees" for North Korea.

And Trump's unilateral decision to reduce tension by cancelling "provocative" joint exercises by US and South Korean forces appeared to catch both close ally Seoul and some Pentagon officials by surprise.

The one-day summit, aimed at reducing the threat from nuclear-armed North Korea, went ahead as planned on Tuesday.
