"I also learned that he loves his country very much", the president said Tuesday when asked what he took away from meeting Kim.
President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un concluded an extraordinary summit Tuesday with lofty promises by the American president to take care of a "very unsafe problem" and Kim forecasting "major change for the world".
"The world will see a major change", he said.
"It's going to be a lot different than it was in the past", Trump concurred.
Pompeo says on Twitter he provided the diplomats with "a brief readout of today's meeting" between Trump and Kim.
"President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S. -DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula", the leaders said in a joint statement. "But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money, plus I think it's very provocative", Mr Trump said.

Meghan showed off her polished but bold wardrobe choice today at the Trooping The Colour ceremony in London with her new husband. The youngster burst into tears and had to be comforted by her mother, who tenderly picked her up and gave her a cuddle.
In addition to their talks, the two leaders also signed an agreement on Tuesday that will commit the United States to providing certain security measures if the Korean peninsula is stripped of all nuclear weapons.
The carefully-choreographed signing went slightly off script when it appeared Kim's team did not want him to use the provided pen.
In a post-summit interview with ABC News, the president said he was confident that the agreement meant full denuclearisation.
"Kim will be remembered as the leader who ushered in a glorious new era of security and prosperity for his people", he said.
Rishi Kapoor, often in the news for his tweets, as usual had a fun take on the Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un meet in Singapore. "It's rough, it's rough in a lot of places, by the way, not just there but it's rough and we will continue that and I think ultimately we will agree to something", Trump said.
Trump responded on Twitter, saying: 'The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the USA, say the haters & losers'.
