    But the agreement - which was less than 400 words - was surprisingly short on details. There is no timeline for the denuclearization, no details of what it would actually look like in practical terms, and no indication of how it will be verified. In addition, Trump announced that the United States would cease joint military exercises with South Korea - which he termed “provocative” - a decision that caught...

    President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met in Singapore on Tuesday.
    The goal of the Trump-Kim summit was to discuss a plan to denuclearize North Korea.
