After his infamous North Korean summit, President Donald Trump congratulated himself on Twitter and told Americans to rest well because all is right in the world.
“Just landed – a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong-un was an interesting, and a very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!” President Trump tweeted.
He told Americans to sleep well.
Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea. President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. No longer – sleep well tonight!

CNN’s Jake Tapper said his tweet was far from the truth. Tapper asserted that President Trump was overcompensating for the summit, and lacked a basic understanding of U.S. relations with North Korea.
“President Trump says you all can sleep well tonight because he’s solved all the problems with North Korea. Tweeting there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. That is just not true,” Tapper said. “Experts say North Korea may have as many as 60 nuclear weapons in the arsenal and North Korea bragged about testing an intercontinental ballistic missiles, and as Michelle Kosinski explains, President Trump did not get any guarantees from Kim Jong-un.”
