  • "Even thinner than most skeptics anticipated." Pusan University analyst Robert E. Kelly was among those expressing dismay with details of the agreement Trump and Kim signed. "This is depressing. This is even thinner than most skeptics anticipated," he tweeted. "I figured Trump wd at least get some missiles or a site closure or something concrete."
  • US military remains. While the agreement consists mainly of promises to hold more talks and a restatement of Kim's earlier denuclearization pledge, it also contains a promise to repatriate the remains of Americans killed in action in the Korean War, the AP reports. Efforts to find the remains of thousands of missing Americans stalled more than a decade ago.
  • "I do trust him." After the summit, Trump told ABC that he trusts Kim and believes the dictator genuinely wants to denuclearize."Over my lifetime I've done a lot of deals with a lot of people and sometimes the people you most distrust turn out to be the most honorable ones and the people that you do trust turn out to be not the honorable ones," Trump said.
  • Sanctions relief. Soon after the summit ended, China suggested that it could be time to ease sanctions on North Korea, the South China Morning Post reports. China's foreign ministry said the United Nations Security Council should support "diplomatic efforts toward denuclearization."
