5:33 pm
>> reporter: kim jong-un said himself it was like a scene from a science fiction movie. the stern faces didn't last long, dissolving into smiles, even laughs, before they went in the for their first meeting. >> we will have a terrific relationship. i have no doubt. >> reporter: kim proclaimed an historic turning point. old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward, he said. but we overcame them all. watching it unfold, it was easy to forget for a moment these two men not long ago had been ominously threatening nuclear war. >> mr. president, how is it going so far, sir? >> very good. >> what do you think? >> very, very good. excellent relationship, thank you. >> reporter: he even showed the north korean dictator his car, the armored limousine known as the beast. >> mr. president, did he agree to denuclearize? >> we're starting that process very quickly, very, very quickly. absolutely. >> reporter: how quickly is unclear.
5:34 pm
the two leaders signed a joint agreement big on goals but short on specifics. president trump promising "security guarantees" for kim and kim declaring his quote, "unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula." >> thank you very much. that's fantastic. >> reporter: but no mention of timing, or how the promise of getting rid of north korea's nuclear weapons will be done and how it will be verified. but the president said the two would be meeting many times. >> great personality, very smart. >> reporter: the president later told reporters he had played kim this slickly produced video depicting a stark choice for the north korean dictator -- prosperity and glory -- >> a new world can begin today. >> reporter: or nuclear annihilation. later, the president spoke of the opportunities for the north. >> they have great beaches. you see that whenever they're exploding their cannons into the
5:35 pm
ocean, right? i said, "boy, look at that. wouldn't that make a great condo?" >> reporter: he also offered kim a controversial concession. the united states will cease all military exercises with south korea. >> i think it's inappropriate to be having war games. >> reporter: but what about human rights? earlier this year the president called north korea the most brutally repressive regime on earth. >> do you still believe that is the case, having sat down with kim jong-un and does he need to change that? >> jon, i believe it's a rough situation over there. there's no question about it, and we did discuss it today. pretty strongly, it's rough. it's rough in a lot of places, by the way, not just there. but it's rough. >> jon karl questioning the president in a news conference. it lasted more than an hour with reporters from all over the world. it was really something to witness here. jon, history made in singapore. the white house acknowledges there's still plenty of details to work out, including how the
5:36 pm
u.s. would verify total denuclearization and how soon economic sanctions might be lifted. >> the president said they would be lifted when nukes are no longer a factor. that would be hopefully soon. but david, virtually all the details are still to be worked out starting with getting north korea to give a full accounting of how many nuclear weapons they have and their entire nuclear program. the president said that he has a very special bond with kim jong-un. that bond is about to be tested in a big way as they begin to work out the details. david? >> jonathan karl leading us off in singapore. jon, thank you. we watched as the president said of kim jong-un he wants to do this as much or more than the president himself. but the world tonight must reconcile the man who has agreed to denuclearize with the brutal dictator who killed his own uncle, his half brother and it's believed countless others to old on to power. after unleashing more missile tests than his father and grandfather combined, can the president trust kim jong-un? that's what george
5:37 pm
stephanopoulos asked him when he sat down with the president after they signed the historic agreement. >> so we saw you sign the agreement right in this room. you also said you developed a special bond with kim. describe that bond. >> well, it's been a very intense day, and as you know, we discussed things over the last few months. >> you did? you've spoken with him before? >> yeah, i have spoken, yes, i have spoken to him. i have spoken to a lot of his people, and so we've developed a pretty good relationship in terms of getting something done. it got done. i think it's a terrific document. it's a starter, but it's a terrific document. >> what other kinds of security guarantees did you offer, did you put on the table? >> well, we've given him -- i don't wanna talk about it specifically, but we've given him -- he's going to be happy. his country does love him. his people, you see the fervor. they have a great fervor. >> you say his people love him. just a few months ago you accused him of starving his people. and listen, here's the rub. kim is a brutal dictator. he runs a police state, forced starvation, labor camps.
5:38 pm
he's assassinated members of his own family. how do you trust a killer like that? >> george, i'm given what i'm given, okay? i mean, this is what we have, and this is where we are, and i can only tell you from my experience -- and i met him, i've spoken with him, and i've met him. and this was, as you know, started very early and it's been very intense. i think that he really wants to do a great job for north korea. i think he wants to denuke. it's very important. without that, there's nothing to discuss. we're starting from scratch. we're starting right now, and we have to get rid of those nuclear weapons. >> how do you trust him, though? is he willing to change? do you believe he's changed? >> well, you know, over my lifetime i've done a lot of deals with a lot of people. and sometimes the people that you most distrust turn out to be the most honorable ones, and the people that you do trust they are not the honorable ones. we are starting from a very high plain. we're starting from a very good relationship. this has been a very big day in terms of the world.
5:39 pm
i think it's been, maybe i -- a lot of people have been saying it's historic. >> we're all calling it historic. >> yeah, even my enemies are calling it historic. >> but a lot of people look at kim jong-un and say, there is no way he is ever giving up those nuclear weapons. that's why he survives, that's why he was in this room today. >> well, i think we have to disagree. otherwise i wouldn't be here or i would have respectfully, you know, i would have shaken his hand. i would have said, listen, i'll see you sometime, but i wouldn't have had any interest. no, this was very important, it's in the first paragraph and it says complete total denuclearization. >> you trust him? >> i do trust him, yeah. now, will i come back to you in a year and you'll be interviewing and i'll say, gee, i made a mistake? that's always possible. you know, we're dealing at a very high level. a lot of things can change, a lot of things are possible. he trusts me, i believe, i really do. he said no other president could have done this. i think he trusts me, and i trust him. >> george stephanopoulos with the president. george asking the president how will they verify that kim is getting rid of his nukes?
