Trump-Kim Summit

Trump says he'll 'find some kind of excuse' if the North Korean deal blows up

President Trump hasn't quite decided whether North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will stick to the deal the two leaders made at Tuesday's summit in Singapore. Ask again in six months.

After the two men signed a document committing to denuclearizing the Korean peninsula, Trump faced reporters for what CNN says is his first full news conference since February 2017. Trump first said he believed Kim would fulfill what was vaguely laid out in the deal. But then he quickly reversed, saying that maybe in six months, it'll all fall through — not that he would admit if it does.

The truth could hurt, but we probably won't hear it.
