WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says North Korea has started returning the remains of US soldiers missing during the Korean War. Speaking with Fox News on the North Lawn of the White House, Trump defended his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying “they are already starting to produce the remains of these great soldiers.”

The president also said returning a military salute to a North Korean three-star general was being respectful. Says Trump: When Kim speaks “his people sit up for attention. I want my people to do the same.”

Trump challenged criticism of his vague joint statement with Kim. He says he got “everything” in the deal.
