U.S. President Donald Trump led the press conference Wednesday by answering questions by journalists for as much as 48 minutes after the U.S.-Japan Summit on Wednesday (local time). This was the most time Mr. Trump allocated to journalists after a summit with the head of a foreign country since his inauguration. He wanted to let his citizens know the accomplishment of the summit in detail.

President Trump has been most confident in the nuclear issues of North Korea saying that he will do whatever it takes to have the North Korea-U.S. summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to become a global success. It is analyzed that Mr. Trump, who has the trait of an adventurer, appeared to be the most assertive among all his other remarks on North Korea’s nuclear issues.

There are views from within and outside the Trump administration that adjustment regarding the contents of North Korea-U.S. has been in most part settled or under discussion. North Korea and the United States are at a stage where a bond of understanding is being created with North Korea suggesting practical means to guarantee its declaration for denuclearization and the United Sates suggesting signing a peace agreement, North Korea-U.S. ties, and means to provide economic support.
