Xi, who met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday, said the summit is "an important first step in the process of political resolution of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula", the state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
"Trump had an idea about how to counter the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, which he got after speaking to Russian President Vladimir Putin: If the USA stopped joint military exercises with the South Koreans, it could help moderate Kim Jong Un's behavior", the Journal reported.
When later asked by another reporter to expand on the remark, Trump said he was "kidding".
"Chuck Schumer said 'the Summit was what the Texans call all cattle and no hat, '" Trump wrote. Say an American solider was 18 when he was sent to North Korea in the war's final year, 1953 - he would have been 80 in 2015; if his parents had given birth to him when they were 18, they would have been 98 in 2015.
"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.
"This summit marked a new beginning for relations between the United States and North Korea and it opened the path for a future for all Koreans, north and south".
Bannon continued that Trump's meeting with Kim helps to curb Chinese influence in the Far East. Don't let anyone think anything different.

The denuclearization deal with North Korea is being praised and celebrated all over Asia. You don't understand sarcasm.
The one-day summit, aimed at reducing the threat from nuclear-armed North Korea, went ahead as planned on Tuesday.
Skeptics criticized the president for giving too much away for too little, all the while legitimizing and even praising one of the world's most brutal dictators.
Earlier Sunday, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported that South Korea and the USA are expected to announce the suspension of "large-scale" military drills this week, with the provision that they would restart if North Korea failed to keep its promise to denuclearize.
