"I do trust him, yeah", the president said in an interview Tuesday with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in Singapore, the site of the summit.

The report from the Korean Central News Agency, which was published after Kim returned home from his meeting, noted Trump's vow to suspend US military drills in South Korea.

During a sendoff ceremony at Pyongyang International Airport, Kim boarded a Chinese plane provided for his personal use after greeting senior officials who came to bid him farewell, KCNA reported.

The official newspaper of the Workers' Party of Korea featured 14 photos covering over half of the front page of its issue yesterday, showing a jovial Mr Kim walking with Singapore Foreign Affairs Minister Vivian Balakrishnan and other Singaporean officials at Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands hotel.

In a blockbusting press conference after the summit, Trump said the United States would halt military exercises with Seoul - something long sought by Pyongyang, which claims the drills are a rehearsal for invasion.

Trump called the North Korean leader "worthy", "smart" and "talented" after the Singapore summit while days earlier describing Trudeau as "dishonest and weak" following a G7 summit in Quebec. The statement made clear that Pyongyang was expecting US concessions before any moves by the North. Will the world embrace this change?

The agreement said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations", while the USA would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea.

Trump agreed to end joint U.S.

"If Trump will succeed in bringing about the dismantling of North Korea's ballistic missile capabilities, Europe can not argue anymore that it is not possible to get a better deal with Iran than what was already reached", he said.

President Donald Trump, the former reality television star with a knack for theatrics, tried a dose of Hollywood drama as he sought to sway North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their historic summit.

The Trump administration reportedly implemented restrictions on USA press during Tuesday's trip, including photo opportunities, prompting a rebuke from The Associated Press.
