The Singapore summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un had drama, imagery, pomp and circumstance, even a Hollywood-style promotional video. There were promises of denuclearization and hopes for a new relationship between the United States and North Korea. What was missing, however, were the specific details and concrete actions necessary to achieve such lofty goals. That work began at a less remarked on, but perhaps more important, meeting in Beijing two days later. Between Mike Pompeo and Xi Jinping.

Sen. Deb Fischer’s (R., Neb.) Democratic opponent Jane Raybould was not prepared on Tuesday for a question from a local news station about President Donald Trump’s historic summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un earlier in the week.
President Donald Trump declared the biggest enemy of the United States to be “the Fake News” in a tweet on Wednesday.
President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that there was no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea.
A future arms agreement between the United States and North Korea should be submitted to the Senate for ratification and the failure to seek advice and consent doomed Obama administration’s Iran nuclear deal, a leading senator says.
The historic meeting in Singapore between President Trump and Kim Jong Un failed to produce a dramatic breakthrough on the issue of the North Korean dictator giving up his nuclear weapons.
