Reuters/Ipsos poll: Half of Americans approve of Trump's handling of North Korea

Reuters/Ipsos poll: Half of Americans approve of Trump's handling of North Korea

Donald Trump's groundbreaking meeting with Kim Jong Un, the hereditary leader of a dynastic dictatorship, was heralded by the main players as a breakthrough that will bring about major change, but left others wondering: What now?

Mr. Trump said the USA will be continuing sanctions until denuclearization occurs - but suggested sanctions might be lifted earlier than many experts thought possible.

In a series of tweets, Trump sought to take political credit for the summit but risked undermining the USA strategy in the region.

Another 26 percent said they believed the United States and North Korea would meet their commitments, while 34 percent said they did not know whether they would follow through.

Trump's shock announcement of a stop to war games with Seoul will have come as an added bonus as Beijing has always eyed the military exercises in its backyard warily.

North Korea typically heavily censors its local and foreign content, with events often not being reported until several days after, if at all. What's more, it could give North Korea the right to rebuild its nuclear weapons program even if it did actually go through with dismantling it.

During his return, Trump spoke with South Korean Prime Minister Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

That didn't last long though: the trailer then cut off to her brutally stabbing a guy in the neck. Hopefully, it's not too far off - it's nearly been two years since the game was first announced.

North and South are also likely to renew their push towards a declaration that the 1950-53 Korean war is over, after fighting stopped in an armistice rather than a peace treaty.

Trump at a news conference Tuesday after the summit suddenly announced that he would end "provocative" and "expensive" joint military operations between the US and South Korea, declaring "I think it's inappropriate to have war games" while negotiations were underway. After all, if there is no threat, why would the North Koreans need to give up their arsenal?

But the future remains uncertain - the US and North Korea did not reach any agreement on the details of how to achieve or verify that denuclearization.

Trump also said that his meeting with Kim was an "interesting and very positive experience" and that "North Korea has great potential for the future!"

He said about half of the cost is for security.

KCNA also said both leaders "gladly accepted" each other's invitation to visit their countries.
