While Trump claimed he'd reached a "very, very comprehensive" agreement with Kim, from the start, he and his team were vague about what actually occurred at the summit.
Mr Trump insisted that strong verification of denuclearisation would be included in a final agreement, saying it was a detail his team would begin sorting out with the North Koreans next week. The president would not elaborate on these hazy measures of time.
A video camera then focused on Kim as Trump's comment was translated for him, and the North Korean leader looked taken aback and not amused.

Although Trump declared North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat, many experts are divided on whether the summit produced anything substantial, such as a clear timeline of denuclearization.
It said the two countries would co-operate towards "new relations", while the USA would provide "security guarantees" to North Korea.
"I think both sides are going to be impressed with the result", Trump told reporters on Tuesday.
The U.S. has stationed combat troops in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in the 1950s and has used them in a variety of drills. It mentioned a plan for senior officials, led on the USA side by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, to keep talking. While specific details were not included in the document, the president told reporters afterwards that Washington will be freezing USA and South Korean military "war games" while negotiations with Pyongyang play out.More news: Foxconn scrutinizing harsh working conditions at factory for Amazon products
Trump has drawn bipartisan criticism at home for agreeing to pause joint U.S.
Trump and Kim's historic meeting in Singapore Monday, which was cancelled and rescheduled multiple times, concluded with a document signed by both leaders that outlined North Korea's "unwavering commitment to compete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" moving forward in exchange for "security guarantees" from the United States.
According to the spokesman, the meeting also enhanced the building of an enduring peace and stability, the denuclearisation efforts in the Korean Peninsula, as well as recovery and repatriation of Prisoners of War/Missing in Action. Ri is best remembered outside North Korea for her emotional deliveries of the deaths of Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Un's father and grandfather.
But the South Carolina Republican said Trump would face opposition to any move to withdraw American forces from South Korea.

At the meeting, Kim "offered to visit the official residence" of the South Korean president in Seoul - a small gesture and a nod to tradition that helped to break ice and changed the public's impression of him as a young, maniacal power-hungry leader. It's one where bipartisan members of Congress are doubting the outcomes of his Singapore summit, while repudiating his rapprochement with Russian Federation and his alienation of U.S. allies.
Trump struck an optimistic tone about his talks with Kim.
"Mike, do they have a transcript?" "They did not record it". It is interesting stuff. We'll probably need - or meeting.

Even if there's no record, Trump assured reporters that it's no big deal. "As I said earlier today: Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace!". "Okay? Okay?" he said.
