US President Donald Trump Wednesday congratulated himself on his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, insisting that country “is no longer a nuclear threat.”
The remark was part of a blast of tweets that Trump fired off even as Air Force One touched down at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland outside the US capital and brought Trump back home.
Trump hailed the summit in Singapore with Kim, in which the North Korean leader agreed to work towards denuclearizing his country.
“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!,” he wrote.
“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!” Trump added.
“The World has taken a big step back from potential Nuclear catastrophe!” Trump said in an earlier tweet.
“No more rocket launches, nuclear testing or research! The hostages are back home with their families. Thank you to Chairman Kim, our day together was historic!”
