The following is the text of a joint statement signed by President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Singapore Summit on June 12, 2018.

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and sincere exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S.–DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula. President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.


Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.–DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following.


The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.–DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

----------------------------

Prime Minister Nevill Chamberlin said that on his return from his summit meeting at Munich, he thought the crowds below his airplane were there to lynch him. Instead he was greeted as a hero, for having reached a deal, and thought there would be peace, in his time.

President Trump told Sean Hannity he thought that Kim Jung Un would immediately begin to work to dismantle his country's nuclear weapons "virtually immediately".

I hope, this time it works out better.

Maybe we could require North Korea to submit to international inspections, the same way President Obama required Iran to verify they weren't secretly trying to make nuclear weapons?

I think that's a good idea, before we lift the sanctions that drove North Korea to the bargaining table.

What do you think, about verification that North Korea has no nuclear weapons program, only peaceful nuclear power generation?

What do I think? I think that you are having a very difficult time saying anything good about the President’s tremendous accomplishment of starting a peace process. After all he is in your words an “evil Republican”

Hard core democrats would rather get blown up than thank Donald Trump for keeping them from getting blown up.

We have no idea what has gone on behind the scenes to get to this point and whether or not more desirable actions will happen in the future.
That said, the hated outsider appears to be getting things done that traditional politicians were not . For that he is disparaged as he is a threat to the status quo.
He is actually doing the job, or at least trying, that we hired him for.
When you act quickly, decisively, and perhaps a bit erratically your critics can't keep up with you and thus appear silly.

Some were, and remain, quite upset with President Obama for essentially doing the same thing with Iran, as President Trump is laudably trying to accomplish with North Korea, make sure neither country has nuclear weapons capability.

President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, if North Korea submits to the same inspections as President Obama put on Iran.

But just to take the word of North Korea's dictator, that he's given up nuclear weapons, didn't work out so well for President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush.

They promised to give up their nukes, then tested their first nuclear bomb in 2006. Since then North Korea has endured crippling sanctions, and made progress in making thermonuclear warheads that can be delivered to strike the United States by long range missiles.

It is a noble achievement that all Americans will cheer and welcome, if the threat of North Korea's nuclear weapons is removed.

But somehow, I think that will require more than a piece of paper signed by a dictator, that he's giving up nuclear weapons.

As Ronald Reagan said, "Trust, but verify".

Still good advice today.

Big difference you obviously missed, President Trump didn't bow like obama did to the mullahs, and also no plane loads of ransom cash like the halfrican sent iran.

The time comes, that President Trump has to give up something in return for Chairman Kim Jun Un giving up his nuclear weapons.

Our President has already given "security guarantees" to North Korea, of undetermined nature. That legitimizes the regime of Kim Jung Un. That is, something. But all America got in return, was a promise by Kim Jung Un to begin the process of getting rid of his nuclear weapons.

There are differences, between Iran and North Korea. Iran didn't have a bomb, but is a much larger and more capable nation than North Korea, with an operational nuclear power reactor designed in the United States and in operation for many years. And, the United States had confiscated billions of dollars of Iranian assets in 1979, to be able to release when Iran agreed to inspections of their nuclear facilities. And Iran didn't have massed artillery parks capable of killing millions of our allies, the same as North Korea threatens South Korea with.

It might come to pass, that just lifting the sanctions against North Korea, may not be enough to entice Kim Jung Un to not only destroy his nuclear weapons,,,,but also submit to international inspections the same way President Obama required of Iran, for their nuclear program.

Otherwise, the North Koreans may in secret, make the same nuclear weapons they already have today.

Once a nation learns how to make nuclear weapons, they can always make more, unless there are inspectors to verify they aren't restarting their nuclear weapons program.

President Trump, does have one advantage that President Obama didn't have,,,

His supporters will cheer him, like the crowd that cheered Neville Chamberlin, when he said there was peace in their time.

Winston Churchill, wasn't cheering, though.
----------------------
Before the House of Commons, October 5, 1938

The Prime Minister desires to see cordial relations between this country and Germany. There is no difficulty at all in having cordial relations between the peoples. Our hearts go out to them. But they have no power. Never will you have friendship with the present German Government. You must have diplomatic and correct relations, but there can never be friendship between the British democracy and the Nazi power, that power which spurns Christian ethics, which cheers its onward course by a barbarous paganism, which vaunts the spirit of aggression and conquest, which derives strength and perverted pleasure from persecution, and uses, as we have seen, with pitiless brutality the threat of murderous force. That power cannot ever be the trusted friend of the British democracy.

We have sustained a defeat without a war, the consequences of which will travel far with us along our road; they should know that we have passed an awful milestone in our history, when the whole equilibrium of Europe has been deranged, and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies:

“Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting.”

And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time.

----------------------------------

That speech is just as relevant for our time, as it was for theirs.

Let's hope we are not weighed in the balance, and found wanting.

Your continual Neville Chamberlain reference is getting to sound like another hackneyed leftist screed, you probably need to find a new woe to parrot. If this was a simple return of Iranian assets why in pallets of currency? Face it, your halfrican mooslim was a loser. Legacy? Just got flushed.

I don't think Trump ever said that he believes that the agreement will be honored, just that one was reached. Unlike the last president that fell for the Iranian hoax, I don't see Trump just walking away from this summit thinking Jung Un will do what he said.

I would have though gullible liberals would be cheering for world peace...I guess they only cheer when their team "negotiates" for it. (For the record, only the libs felt the Iranian deal was a win. It was certainly a win for the bad guys. They made Obama and Co. look like the JV team they are/were.)

The United States of America, has legitimized the brutal, murderous, oppressive cult dictatorship of the Kim family of North Korea, by making "security guarantees" to the present North Korean regime.

No United States President, since the unprovoked invasion of South Korea by Kim Jung Un's grandfather in June of 1950, has ever dreamed of legitimizing that blood soaked tyranny. None have ever met in person with their dictator.

But so long as the crowds roar, our President is undisturbed by such matters as handing out security guarantees to North Korea.

Too bad, our President couldn't make a joint statement with our trusted allies, at the G7 meeting.

Watching the Trump show, is never boring.

It's a reminder of the consequences of losing elections, and inspiration to work to make sure this will not happen again, ever.

So what type of war do you propose against the brutal, murderous, oppressive cult dictatorship?
LBJ wanted to stop the Godless communists with limited warfare from taking over Vietnam, remember how that went?
Trump does cause the left to flip and flop.
