Just kidding

That thing Trump said after his jovial meeting with Kim?¬†“There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea”? Apparently it was one of his jokes.

US President Donald Trump has renewed sanctions on North Korea, citing an “extraordinary threat” from its nuclear weapons – just 10 days after saying there was no risk from Pyongyang.

“There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea,” he tweeted on 13 June, a day after meeting the country’s leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

Democrats say the latest White House language contradicts the president’s earlier boasts about the success of the Singapore summit. In another tweet on 13 June, he said Americans could “sleep well tonight!”.

Democrats say? Come on now. It’s not a party matter. Trump did say what Trump did say.

“There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.” That’s what he said. Many of us pointed out at the time that the claim was ludicrous, but the claim is what it is; he said it.

We said that was ludicrous too. He still said it.
