US President Donald Trump has said talks with North Korea are going well, just days after Trump declared the country an “unusual and extraordinary threat” to American national security, despite a historic recent summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
“Many good conversations with North Korea-it is going well!”Trump wrote in a post on Twitter on Tuesday.
Many good conversations with North Korea-it is going well! In the meantime, no Rocket Launches or Nuclear Testing in 8 months. All of Asia is thrilled. Only the Opposition Party, which includes the Fake News, is complaining. If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!

Following their meeting on June 12 in Singapore, the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, Trump and Kim signed a joined document, committing to establishing new relations and achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula.
