WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump declared Wednesday that there is “no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea” as he returned to Washington, offering a rosy assessment of a summit with the leader of a nation that still possesses nuclear weapons.
“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,” the president said on Twitter.
He later lashed out at media coverage of his meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jon Un, some of which has raised questions about how much was gained during the meeting in Singapore.
“Our Country’s biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!” Trump wrote, claiming that television networks “are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea.”
Trump’s tweets followed a high-profile summit which yielded a renewed promise by Kim to “denuclearize” the Korean Peninsula but was scant on details. Lawmakers, analysts and allies have hailed the effort but questioned the substance of what was achieved.
The president’s tweets began shortly after Air Force One landed at Joint Base Andrews just outside Washington and continued once he reached the White House.
