#DPRK wanted sanctions totally lifted, says ⁦@POTUS⁩.
"He has a certain vision and it's not exactly our vision" on denuclearization, says @POTUS.
As for the third questioner, @POTUS calls on @seanhannity.
Kim promised @POTUS last night "he's not going to do testing" of "rockets and nuclear.
"I tried to watch as much as I could" of the "fake hearing" with @MichaelCohen212, says @POTUS, adding "he lied a lot."
"This wasn't a walk-away like you get up and walk out" with Kim Jong Un at the end of today's discussions, says @POTUS, adding it was "very friendly."
"We hoped we could do more," adds @SecPompeo. "Real progress was made."
"We like each other, good relationship," says @POTUS of Kim.
"You always have to be prepared to walk," says @POTUS. "I could have signed something today...we actually had papers ready to be signed."
Dismantling Yongbyon complex was discussed in exchange for lifting of sanctions, says @POTUS. "We brought many points up that they were surprised that they knew."
Didn't get across the finish line on "timing and sequence issues," says @SecPompeo.
"We want a lot to be given up" by the #DPRK in exchange for getting economic help from the US and other countries, says @POTUS.
"He said he's not going to do testing of rockets and missiles or anything nuclear," says @POTUS of Kim.
"We did talk about China today a lot," says @POTUS taking a second question in a row from mainland Chinese media.
"We'll be calling President Moon very soon" when he gets on Air Force One, as well Japanese Prime Minister Abe, says @POTUS.
A third question now from a mainland Chinese media outlet.
"No we haven't" replies @POTUS to question from @margarettalev on whether he's committed to a 3rd #TrumpKimSummit.
And @DavidNakamura asking whether he confronted Kim about Otto Warmbier's death.
"I don't think the top leadership (in #DPRK) knew about it," replies @POTUS.
"Those prisons are rough...and bad things happen" in the #DPRK, adds @POTUS. "He tells me that he didn't know about and I will take him at his word."
"There are sites people don't know about that we know about" that US would want subject to inspections in the #DPRK, says @POTUS.
And now at least a fifth question to a mainland Chinese reporter.
"The language has been good even now, but I don't go by language," says @POTUS of the impasse in negotiations today.
"I don't want to talk about increasing sanctions, they're strong," says @POTUS mentioning the suffering of people in the #DPRK.
And that's it as US reporters shout questions about @MichaelCohen212 as @POTUS leaves the podium.
Some grumbling among US reporters about how many times @POTUS called on reporters from mainland #China outlets and their similar softball questions. It wasn’t intentional as @realDonaldTrump didn’t know who they were, but they were invited by @WhiteHouse to attend.
