Anchoring ABC's "This Week," Jonathan Karl asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, by satellite from Saudi Arabia, if he can really trust anything that comes out of a meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

"This administration has its eyes wide open. We know the history. We know the risks. We’re going to be very different. We’re going to negotiate in a different way than has been done before."
— Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
  • "[W]e use the word 'irreversible' with great intention. We’re going to require those steps that demonstrate that denuclearization is going to be achieved."
  • "We’re not going to make promises. We’re not going to take words. We’re going to look for actions and deeds."
  • "And until such time, the president has made it incredibly clear we will keep the pressure campaign in place until we achieve that. That’s different. And so in each case, both countries will have to do more than words."

An "infodemic" of misinformation and disinformation has helped cripple the response to the novel coronavirus.
