WW3 Cancelled.... Trump Meets Kim Jong Un, Agree to "Complete Denuclearization"

President Donald Trump met with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, and the two leaders signed what Trump called a "very important document".

Trump said it was a "pretty comprehensive document," but didn't offer details on what it contains.

He said he would discuss it "at great length" at an upcoming news conference, and the document would be made available publicly.

Trump was asked by a reporter if Kim agreed to denuclearize and he said, “We are starting that process very quickly.”

From the document:  "Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."

Trump also told reporters, "We had a really fantastic meeting. A lot of progress," after sitting for having talks and a working lunch. He added, "Really very positive. I think better than anybody could have expected."

Dennis Rodman Weeps With Joy at Summit Between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman cried on television in a live interview from Singapore as President Trump and Kim Jong Un met for the first time

The former reality television star is one of the few westerners to have spent time with the North Korean leader during multiple visits to Pyongyang and the two struck up a friendship over their shared love of basketball. Rodman also goes back years with Trump and appeared on his "Celebrity Apprentice" show.

In an emotional interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rodman, wearing sunglasses and a "Make America Great Again" hat, said he had received a call from the White House ahead of Trump's historic meeting with Kim—the first between a sitting president and North Korean leader.

Rodman said, "Yes, Donald Trump reached out," telling Cuomo he'd received a call from a person he described as Trump's secretary. "She called me and said, 'Dennis, Donald Trump is so proud of you. He thanks you a lot.' And that means a lot".   Rodman added that he suspected he "somewhat had something to do with this North Korean situation."

Rodman grew emotional as he recalled Barack Obama failing to take him seriously when he returned from Pyongyang with a message from Kim. Rodman said Obama "just brushed me off" and "didn't even give me the time of day." He expressed hope that Trump and Kim would be able to make progress.

Rodman wept as he described the reaction he received for his efforts.

He said, "It's amazing, when I said those things, when I want back home I got so many death threats. I got death threats. And i was sitting there protecting everything and I believed in North Korea.

"I couldn't even go home. I couldn't even go home. I had to hide for 30 days". 


Rodman added that he never doubted the day would come when the world would see things differently.

He said, "I took all those bullets. I took everything that came at me and I'm still standing.  It's a great day and I'm here to see it. I'm so happy."

Asked to describe Kim, Rodman said the autocratic leader was "like a big kid" who wants to have a good time, but is "trying to protect his people" and his honor.

Dennis Rodman got very emotional while talking to CNN about the summit between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un.  Rodman feels like he had something to do with bringing the two parties together.
