Trump says he's confident Kim will denuclearize
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump says he's confident North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "will honor the contract we signed & even more importantly, our handshake."
Trump tweeted Monday "we agreed to the denuclearization of North Korea" and suggested China "may be exerting negative pressure" on North Korea because of an escalating trade dispute between the U.S. and China.
But he tweeted, "Hope Not!"
The tweet follows Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to North Korea last week for the first high-level talks on denuclearization since Trump and Kim met in Singapore in June. Pompeo said the discussion had been productive. But North Korea's official news agency later said the visit had been "regrettable" and accused Washington of making "gangster-like" demands to force it to abandon its nuclear weapons.
