In a sign that Kim remains paranoid about his personal safety, a North Korean official inspected the pen that was placed in front of Kim to sign the joint declaration with Trump, rubbing it with a gloved hand.

Tuesday's historic meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un left some Korean Americans feeling dazed but optimistic about what could be the beginning of a new era for the Korean Peninsula.

The KCNA report also said Trump would lift sanctions against the North - a claim that contradicted comments from the president Tuesday that the measures would "come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor".

Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington tomorrow morning after spending today with Kim in Singapore, but on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8pm today after a full day of meetings with Kim - nearly 15 hours earlier than previously anticipated.

Mr Trump said Mr Kim and other senior members of the North Korean delegation huddled around an iPad to watch the video, which looked like it has been made using generic stock images and news clips.

Pyongyang has demanded the end of what it calls a "hostile policy" towards it, but in public has only pledged to pursue the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula - a euphemism open to wide differences of interpretation. "I really don't care how generous we are as long as we don't go too far when it comes to our troop presence".

Highlighting the continued differences in the two countries' views of the denuclearization process, the report also said that they had agreed on a "step-by-step" approach.

"It's very unfair to our farmers, and it's very unfair to the people of our country", Trump said Tuesday.

The CDC said that 60 people have reportedly been infected with a strain of Salmonella Adelaide, with 31 people hospitalized. They are all linked to the the Caito Foods facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, the CDC said.

"I share president Trump's assessment of that when he thanked the leaders of Japan and South Korea and China for the solidarity they've shown". Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise described positive steps from the meeting, such as Kim saying he's willing to take steps toward denuclearization.

Mr Trump's new position appears to adopt a "freeze for freeze" policy advanced by China under which North Korea suspends it nuclear weapons testing in return for the United States concession.

During the summit, Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim signed a joint statement in which the North Korean leader broadly "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". USA officials couldn't confirm that Trump had told counterparts in Seoul about the plan to suspend military exercises, which North Korea has long regarded as a threat.

White House adviser apologizes for slamming Justin Trudeau
The Trump administration took umbrage at an ally publicly criticizing US policy just before a historic meeting with Kim Jong-Un. Maybe we need a northern wall", he said. "I own that, that was my mistake, my words", he said at a Journal conference.

Rocky Kim, President of the Canada Federation of North Korean Defectors, joined worldwide voices around the world questioning Trump's approach with the North Korean leader.

North Korea sees the annual exercises as a rehearsal for invasion, but the government in Seoul maintains they are defensive in nature.

It appears to be composed nearly entirely of generic stock footage and old news clips, including images of Mr Trump and Mr Kim smiling.

"Sanctions are a means, not an end", Geng said.
