President Donald Trump regaled North Korea and the summit he participated in with dictator Kim Jong-un during his South Carolina rally Monday.
“South Korea. Remember, they came over from South Korea. They stopped. North Korea, South Korea. The Olympics. It started with the Olympics,” rambled Trump. “When chairman Kim said we want to go to the Olympics. I said that’s nice. That’s a big difference from the dialogue we had. They want to go to the Olympics. The Olympics would have been a massive failure and turned out to be a success. President moon of South Korea gives us the credit.”
He went on to say that Olympic tickets weren’t selling before the United States announced it was getting involved in talks.
“They were not selling,” he said. “People didn’t want to be nuked in a stadium as they watched the opening ceremony. They didn’t want to be watching the opening ceremonies at the same time and looking up at the skies. How long will this last? They were not exactly selling tickets. The minute that happened — he said he would like to be part of the Olympics out of nowhere. The minute that happened, they became a fantastic success. A great Olympics. Great Olympics.”
He went on to praise Kim, saying that the two had “good chemistry.”
“Not that easy. But they took down signs. Anti-United States signs all over North Korea. They’re down. They came down. Anti-U.S. signs,” Trump said. “Like I put up anti-media signs all over the place. You’re worse than I am. No, we just want honesty.”

Viewers reject Sarah Palin’s advice to Kamala Harris: ‘I changed the channel’
Sarah Palin offered advice to Sen. Kamala Harris on running for vice president, but social media users didn't want to hear it.
The former Republican vice presidential nominee and one-time half-term governor of Alaska appeared Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America," where she complained about the media coverage of her failed 2008 campaign alongside Sen. John McCain.
"A lot of the coverage of me was quite unfair," Palin said. "I hope that they will treat her fairly, but at the same time, no kid gloves ... the American voter wants to know that we have the most capable people running and who will be elected, regardless of gender, regardless of race."
CNN fact-checker debunks Pence’s ‘bonkers’ lie about Obama and job creation
Speaking to Fox News, Vice President Mike Pence tried to put a positive spin on the economy — by taking the economic rebound of the past 3 months, and claiming that the raw number of jobs created during that period beats the entirety of job growth in President Barack Obama's 8-year administration.

‘Damned evil’: Trump shocks Americans with open boasts about defunding the Post Office before election
President Donald Trump has shocked many Americans with his declaration that he doesn't want to give the United States Postal Service enough funding to count ballots that have been sent via mail.
When asked by Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo about extra funding for the Post Office during a Thursday morning interview, Trump explicitly tied his refusal to give the USPS what it needed with his desire to block mail-in voting.
