President Donald Trump told reporters in an impromptu news conference on the White House lawn he had given North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a phone number to allow him to reach him directly. He added: "If you're fair, when I came in, people thought we were probably going to war with North Korea".
Mr Trump also used language often employed by North Korea to describe those exercises, calling them "provocative" and "war games".
Donald Trump said he wishes people would "sit up and pay attention" to him the way they do in North Korea when Kim Jong Un speaks.
"Our definition of denuclearization is they give up all their fissile material, facilities, nuclear material taken out, irrevocably and verifiably", says Jung Pak, top Korea expert at the Brookings Institution and a former senior CIA Korea analyst.
Trump claimed there was "a coordinated effort" among news outlets to insist that Trump gave up "sooo much" in the negotiation process by meeting with Kim, and he said they focus on this point because they have nothing else to criticize.
But Trump recalled that when he came to office a year ago, his predecessor Barack Obama had warned that North Korea's growing missile and nuclear threat was the United States' "most unsafe problem".
North Korea has perpetuated human rights abuses for decades, according to watchdog agencies, human rights groups and the USA government.

The two met earlier this week to begin to discuss Pyongyang's nuclear program, a summit marked by what Trump said was friendly chemistry between them.
An Obama-era agreement with China aimed at curbing economic cyberespionage was reaffirmed by the Trump Administration previous year.
Among Trump's most vocal supporters is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who led negotiations with Pyongyang to set up the summit and will hold talks with the North to work out vital details of the deal. In one particularly very bad sound byte, the president said that Kim is a "strong head" and admired the way that the - I repeat - dictator commands "his people".
"Denuclearization is great, but we also have to concern ourselves with what the cyber capabilities are, so we can make sure that doesn't happen to our businesses and other assets in the United States", Lynton said.
