Donald Trump and Moon Jae-in sign renegotiated trade agreement

"Makes me feel very good, I love our farmers", Trump said, adding that the deal would double the cars per manufacturer that can enter the South Korean market while meeting United States safety standards.

"The North Koreans have agreed to shut down, with inspectors, these two old facilities that we can see from satellite, but have not put on the table the most risky weapons they're developing, which were the cause of this crisis in the first place", said Green, comparing it to finally offering to sell the USA their Dodge Dart and Ford pickup after 30 years, now on cinder blocks, and still at a high price - while hiding a Lexus and BMW in the garage. He says US automobiles, pharmaceuticals and agricultural products will gain better access to Korean markets.

Moon says companies from both countries will be able to do business under more stable conditions.

Trump praised Kim as "very open" and "terrific", despite the glacial pace of progress toward denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula.

Donald Trump is expecting to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for the second time "quite soon".

Pompeo says, "We're bringing the two senior leaders, the individuals who can actually make the decisions that will move this process forward", in hopes they can make a breakthrough.

President Trump signed a revised free-trade pact on Monday with South Korea, as he steps up efforts this week to show he can strike new market-opening deals and isn't antagonistic to trade.

Speaking at the United Nations, Trump says the relationship with the country whose leader he branded previous year as "Little Rocket Man" is much improved.

Trump has often fondly invoked the Singapore summit, a made-for-TV event that attracted the world's media attention and largely received positive marks from cable pundits - reviews that were not repeated for his summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Helsinki the following month.

Mr. Trump said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is working out the details for the second Trump-Kim meeting.

If there is a through line to the still-evolving Trump doctrine on foreign policy, it is that the president will not subordinate American interests on the world stage, whether for economic, military or political gain. Moon is expected to convey to Trump a personal message from Kim delivered at their inter-Korean talks last week. "This is one year later, a very different time".

This year's General Assembly will be Mr. Trump's second meeting since taking office and Pompeo's first since taking over as secretary of state. USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said last week the two had agreed to meet but said the meeting could take place later.

As he begins the sequel to his stormy United Nations debut, President Donald Trump will again confront the dangers posed by North Korea's nuclear threat, though its shadow may appear somewhat less ominous than a year ago.

"You are indeed the only person who can solve this problem", Moon Jae-in, who met Kim Jong Un last week in Pyongyang, told Trump.
