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.”
Swiss holding ‘funeral march’ to mark disappearance of an Alpine glacier
Dozens of people will undertake a "funeral march" up a steep Swiss mountainside on Sunday to mark the disappearance of an Alpine glacier amid growing global alarm over climate change.
The Pizol "has lost so much substance that from a scientific perspective it is no longer a glacier," Alessandra Degiacomi, of the Swiss Association for Climate Protection, told AFP.
The organisation which helped organise Sunday's march said around 100 people were due to take part in the event, set to take place as the UN gathers youth activists and world leaders in New York to mull the action needed to curb global warming.
UAW strike ‘threatens to upend the economy in Michigan’ — and could destroy Trump’s re-election: report

Security forces fired live rounds at protesters calling for the ouster of Egyptian president: report
Egyptian security forces clashed with hundreds of anti-government protesters in the port city of Suez on Saturday, firing tear gas and live rounds, said several residents who participated in the demonstrations.
A heavy security presence was also maintained in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicentre of Egypt's 2011 revolution, after protests in several cities called for the removal of general-turned-president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
Such demonstrations are rare after Egypt effectively banned protests under a law passed following the 2013 military ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi.
