North Korea Summit: Too Much For Too Little?

(NBC) - President Trump is back from Singapore and singing the praises of his historic meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un.

However, critics worry his announcement to stop long-standing joint military exercises with South Korea is giving away too much, too soon.

"Look, the jury's still out on the things that we want, but the North Koreans have already gotten some of the things that they wanted," said Senator Chris Van Hollen.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offered assurances Wednesday, saying that if North Korea stops negotiating in good faith, the exercises will resume.

North Korea has also agreed to return the remains of U.S. military members killed there, but have only given vague commitments on denuclearizing.

From the president's point of view, the deal is as good as done.

"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!" the president tweeted out Wednesday.
