In a wide-ranging spontaneous interview with Fox News outside the White House, the US President said Mr Kim's power should not be underestimated.

"Now there are prospects of resolving the problems by peaceful political and diplomatic means", he said.
Trump and Kim declared in the joint statement following the summit their commitment toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula while guaranteeing the security of the North Korean regime. "You will have nuclear war", he said.

The comment created a stir, but when asked about it later, Trump said he hadn't meant the comment to be taken seriously. The two signed a vague agreement in which Trump reportedly agreed to stop America's joint military exercises with South Korea, but did not appear to get concrete concessions from Kim. "As I said in Singapore, Chairman Kim has the chance to seize an incredible future for his people", he said.
