“We are going to have a great discussion and, I think, tremendous success,” Trump stated during a joint press conference before adding, “We will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.”
Trump also tweeted that meetings “between staffs and representatives are going well and quickly.”
In the end, Trump and Kim both signed an agreement that the Associated Press reports is for “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
However, during the event in which the two signed the agreement, CNN’s Jim Acosta interrupted to yell questions.
“Mr. President, did he agree to denuclearize?” Acosta asked.
“We’re starting that process very quickly. Very, very quickly,” Trump answered.
“Did you talk about Otto Warmbier, sir?” Acosta then followed up.
Trump did not respond to the question but later stated:
“You’ll be seeing everything in just a little while. The letter that we’re signing is very comprehensive, and I think both sides are going to be very impressed with the result. A lot of goodwill went into this. A lot of work, a lot of preparation. I want to thank everybody on both sides.”
