Trump also said he would like Americans to "sit up at attention" when he speaks like North Koreans do for Kim.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he wants "my people" to "sit up at attention" the way North Koreans do for dictator Kim Jong Un.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Trump in Singapore last week.

A recent story by the Washington Post reported that, at one point, while watching state-run North Korean television, Trump praised how positive the female North Korean news anchor was toward Kim.

"Not serious impact.His (Kim Jong Un) power, his status as a leader started from 2011 but several years later he started why I think he has [the] confidence to control all the politicians", he said. Don't let anyone think anything different.

"I'm going to speak to people in North Korea, and I'm going to speak to my people who are over in North Korea", he said.

"I don't want to see a nuclear weapon destroy you and your family", he told reporters.

When asked what he meant by the remark after the Fox interview, Mr Trump said he was "just kidding". Officials have not verified reports that North Korea may have demolished a stand used for missile-ejection tests in May.

Among Trump's most vocal supporters is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who led negotiations to set up the summit and will hold talks with the North to work out details of the deal.

On Friday, Trump was asked by a reporter how he can mourn the death of American Otto Warmbier, who was held hostage in North Korea and returned to the U.S.in a coma past year, while "in the same breath" defending Kim's human rights abuses. We got so much for peace in the world, & more is being added in finals.

Abe will use the possible summit to confront Kim on the long-simmering issue of Japanese nationals abducted by the North in the 1970s and 1980s to train its spies.

Trump has voiced his irritation at US critics' assessment that the brief pact he and Kim signed at their Singapore summit was not specific enough to ensure an end to North Korea's nuclear weapons development. But they need us more than we need them - President Trump is right about that - and we should be strong.

"North Korea is an unimaginable country", she said.

About 28,500 US troops are stationed in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War that ended in an armistice rather than a peace treaty, leaving the two Koreas technically still at war. "I hated them from the day I came in".

During an interview yesterday following the American's summit with Kim Jong-un, he reiterated both leaders have a "good chemistry".
