"We must have hope that this agreement will finally bring peace to the peninsula and help bring closure to thousands of families of missing American servicemen from the Korean War", Keith Harman, national commander of the VFW, said in a statement. The two sides promised to hold follow-up negotiations.
"We're starting that process very quickly".
"We had it made up", Trump said.
Kim, though, did get something valuable - a meeting with a sitting US president (something his father and grandfather never accomplished, despite great efforts).
Later, in an interview with Voice of America's Greta Van Susteren, Trump brushed off a contentious exchange about Kim's human-rights abuses.
Still, the often erratic USA president did the world a favour by meeting, and to a certain extent, being seduced by Kim.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars, which had called for Trump and Kim to address the issue of the missing prior to the summit, hailed the agreement. "At the same time, there needs to be a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to resolve North Korea's reasonable security concerns".
During an interview with the Associated Press, Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson said he has resigned from an advisory panel trying to tackle the massive Rohingya refugee crisis, January 24, 2018, in Yangon, Myanmar. He's a amusing guy, he's very smart, he's a great negotiator. "I think he wants to denuke, it's very important".
In his State of the Union address, Trump acknowledged this, calling North Korea "depraved" and shouting out a North Korean defector who had been abused by the regime.
"I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain".
The president also revealed that he agreed to halt military exercises with South Korea, a move Murphy tells IJR makes this deal a "dream come true" for the North Korean leader.
Mr Trump said he had formed a "special bond" with Mr Kim, and would "absolutely" invite him to Washington. As Trump noted, sanctions remain in place. Speaking through a translator, Kim vowed: "The world will see the major change". "He loves his people, not that I'm surprised by that".
