President Trump is hailing "tremendous progress" on North Korea.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The President says before he took office, it looked like the U.S. was heading for war with North Korea and that a lot of progress has been made:

(President Trump): "We're getting our remains back, they continue to come in. A lot of tremendous things. But very importantly, no missile testing, no nuclear testing."

President Trump made the comments before boarding Marine 1 at the White House, bound for North Carolina.

Earlier today, the President tweeted: "Kim Jong Un has agreed to allow Nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of international experts".
