Early Wednesday morning, hours after returning from his Singapore summit with the North Korean murderous despot, Trump announced – falsely – that the nuclear threat from North Korea is over.
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!

It cannot be understated just how false this claim is.
Aside from thinking he's made a new BFF, nothing, absolutely nothing has changed.
Kim Jong-un still has nuclear weapons. There is no actual plan from a third party to locate and inventory them, to quantify how many and of what strength there are. There is no plan to dismantle and deactivate them. There is no plan to destroy them. There is no plan to send the fissile materials anywhere.
All Trump has going on is that he thinks he made a new friend. And as we all know, Trump's relationships don't last long.
