The summit and Trump's later comments have raised questions and drawn some criticism, including over whether the president has lavished too much praise on Kim, a brutal dictator; when any specifics will be announced on ending North Korea's nuclear program; and whether Trump is working closely enough with US allies South Korea and Japan on North Korea policy.
President Donald Trump on Friday defended his warm praise of Kim Jong Un, saying his newfound affinity for the North Korean dictator was making Americans safer. "I would like to express my gratitude to President Trump". When asked about whether Kim would be visiting the White House any time soon, Trump responded "it could happen". In May, after North Korea criticised his vice-president, Mike Pence, Trump said the summit was cancelled.
"The denuclearisation deal with North Korea is being praised and celebrated all over Asia", Mr Trump tweeted.
"Above all, I have the honor to convey to you, with special respect, honest regards from Chairman of the State Council of the DPRK Comrade Kim Jong-un", he said.

Trump had earlier warned that any countries voting against the North American bid would suffer consequences in trade deals. The report left the US-Canada-Mexico bid as the clear front-runner after giving it a rating of four out of five.
Matters seemingly worsened previous year when North Korea exploded its first hydrogen bomb and successfully tested its Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which it said is capable of hitting mainland USA. I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement, it's great.
Trump also touched on a few other subjects Sunday morning, including the viral photo shared by German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the G7 summit which depicted her staring down the U.S. President. "And I mean he's the strong head". Don't let anyone think anything different.
Earlier Sunday, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported that South Korea and the US are expected to announce the suspension of "large-scale" military drills this week, with the provision that they would restart if North Korea failed to keep its promise to denuclearize.
"Kim is clever. He is using this moment to sanitize his global image", she said. "He speaks and his people sit up at attention".

The #MeToo campaign took off a year ago following sexual assault allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein . Notwithstanding that, she filed a police report , (and) the media outlet refused to publish the story.
This time a year ago, North Korean state media was busy hurling invectives at Trump and threatening the U.S. with its nuclear weapons while Trump was referring to Kim as "the little rocket man".
Still, many people on Twitter and beyond found the comment disconcerting, given North Korea's human rights violations and prison camps.
The President's deal calls for "complete" denuclearization but makes no mention of how or when North Korea will accomplish that goal. Actually, I think sarcasm is one thing reporters do understand.
"It can become whatever they want but there won't be nuclear weapons, and they won't be aimed at you and your family".
