Fox News host Tucker Carlson defended President Donald Trump's friendly rapport with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un - whose government has been accused of severe human rights violations - by claiming that other countries, including American allies, also "commit atrocities". "Not on the scale that the North Koreans do, but a lot of countries commit atrocities, including a number that we're closely allied with".
This was the leaders' first meeting, and the first sight of progress, since their February summit in Vietnam when both sides couldn't come to an agreement on sanctions relief for North Korea's dismantling of their nuclear arsenal. And we've seen a history Donald Trump announces these summits and nothing comes out of it.
"New WH Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham got into a scuffle with the North Koreans to move members of the WH press pool into position to cover Trump and Kim, I'm told".
Trump called the meeting a "great honor" in a tweet following his meeting, in which he and Kim agreed to restart talks - each leader creating a team of negotiators to continue discussions surrounding North Korea's denuclearization. Meantime, the United Nations said in May that about 10 million people in North Korea are suffering from "severe food shortages" after the North had one of the worst harvests in a decade.

Trump has raised the profile of a dictator by meeting with Kim three times now with nothing to show for it, according to Julian Castro, U.S. housing secretary under President Barack Obama, and former U.S. Representative Beto O'Rourke. Trump tweeted on Friday. But the elder Bush, who died past year, visited the DMZ while serving as vice president under Reagan.
A spokesman for former vice-president Joe Biden said Mr Trump was "coddling" dictators at the expense of United States national security.
