The evidence, collected in the wake of the June 12 summit in Singapore, points to preparations to deceive the United States about the number of nuclear warheads in North Korea's arsenal as well as the existence of undisclosed facilities used to make fissile material for nuclear bombs, the officials said.

Donald Trump said on Sunday it was "possible" that a deal he claimed ended the nuclear threat posed by North Korea would not "work out".

Bolton said the US has a program in the works that would allow for North Korea's nuclear program to be dismantled within a year.

Cronin, senior director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program at the Center for a New American Security, said he had heard from US and South Korea officials that Pompeo was expected to return to Pyongyang at the end of this week and that Sung Kim was working to prepare the way for that trip.

"Our experts have devised is a program. with North Korean cooperation" that will allow "full disclosure of all of their chemical and biological nuclear programs ballistic missile sites", Bolton said, adding, "we would be able to dismantle the overwhelming bulk of their programs within a year".

The White House has said that the order was not a long-term solution and has called for Congress to pass immigration reform. Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Kirsten Gillibrand of NY and Edward Markey of MA also appeared before the crowd.

At the White House, President Trump ignored shouted questions from reporters about the Maryland massacre, after leaving his helicopter and crossing the White House lawn.

North Korea has yet to return the remains of United States soldiers who died in the country during the Korean War - an agreement reached at the summit - despite Trump's remarks last week claiming that transfers were under way, according to Pompeo on Sunday. Trump touted the agreement as a significant step toward peace in the world. They also pointed out that North Korea has made similar agreements in the past, only to renege. "We're well aware of what the North Koreans have done in the past".

Aspects of the evidence were also reported on Friday by NBC News, which said that Pyongyang has in fact recently been increasing fuel production for nuclear weapons at several hidden sites.

Pompeo has already visited Pyongyang twice since April to meet with Kim - the first time when he was still director of the Central Intelligence Agency - and there are discussions about a possible third trip to North Korea late next week but such a visit has not yet been confirmed.

Bolton also addressed Trump's upcoming meeting with Putin Sunday, telling Fox News Sunday that he believes critics are wrong to suggest the president has been to soft on Russian Federation. Last summer, during his first one-on-one meeting with Putin, in Hamburg, Trump said that he questioned him about the interference accusations and that the Russian leader denied it. "North Korea has great potential for the future!" "Then the elimination of sanctions, aid by South Korea and Japan and others can all begin to flower". "We have a very good chemistry", he added.
