President Donald Trump spoke to reporters Tuesday in an hourlong news conference after he and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a document pledging to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."
1. 'War games' ending: Trump said he agreed to put an end to the United States’ “war games,” or joint military exercises, with South Korea “unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should.”
"I want to get our soldiers out," he added. "I want to bring our soldiers back home, but that’s not part of the equation right now. I hope it will be eventually.”
2. Denuclearization timetable: Trump wants Kim to denuclearize North Korea as quickly as “mechanically” possible and pledged to remove sanctions on the country when officials are able to verify that “nukes are no longer a factor.”
3. Missile test site's destruction: "Kim has told me that North Korea is already destroying a major missile engine testing site,” Trump said, adding: "That's not in your signed document. We agreed to that after the agreement was signed."
