Trump made the bold proclamation on Twitter after landing back in America from his historic summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore. The news is sure to be a relief to millions of Japanese, South Korean, and American citizens who have been worried about the North’s nuclear program. It’s also sure to surprise military and policy experts and others who maintain North Korea will be a nuclear power. But hey, Trump says so . . . so maybe his bromance trailer had a bigger impact on Kim than we all realized.
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 very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!
