Trump: There Is No Longer a Nuclear Threat From North Korea

President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that there was no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea.

"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," Trump tweeted. "Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!"

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has yet to dispose nuclear weapons or their ballistic missiles that have the ability to strike the United States.

During this week's summit in Singapore, Trump became the first U.S. president to meet face-to-face with a North Korean head of state. The Trump administration has pushed for North Korea to denuclearize, while promising security and prosperity in return. The joint statement Trump and Kim signed gave few details on how the two countries will move forward with denuclearization of the peninsula.

"President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," the statement said.

Trump continued to tweet and said that the country could "sleep well" now because he thinks North Korea is no longer a threat.

"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 tweeted.

Critics of the summit argue Trump giving Kim a face-to-face meeting will legitimize the dictator without any serious concessions from the dictator. They also believe Trump gave up a significant concession in his decision to cancel joint military exercises between the U.S. and South Korea. Trump defended his decision by saying the country will save a fortune and that it's the right decision because he believes both sides are negotiating in good faith.

"We save a fortune by not doing war games, as long as we are negotiating in good faith – which both sides are!" Trump tweeted.

CNN Contributor Defends Outburst Against Sarah Huckabee Sanders: ‘As a Reporter My Job Is to Comfort the Afflicted’

Playboy White House correspondent and CNN contributor Brian Karem defended his Thursday outburst against Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders while on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday. In that outburst, Karem asked Sanders if she had any empathy for children and accused the Trump administration of throwing them "in cages." "You're a parent! Don't you have any empathy? Come on, Sarah, you're a parent!" he said. "Don't you have any empathy for what these people are going through? They have less than you do. Sarah, come on, seriously. Seriously." Sanders told Karem to "settle down," and said "Brian, I know you want to get some more TV time, but that's not what this is about." "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter asked Karem if he regretted losing his cool. "Brian, I have an apology to make," Karem started. "I apologize to every human being who's had to suffer who has less than I do and I did not come to the table sooner. I'm sorry to those people for waiting so long and holding my temper." "I'm extremely angry with this administration that has lied to me, continues to lie to me," he said. Karem said he had forgotten that the job of reporters is to "comfort the afflicted." "I'm sorry as a reporter that for so long I thought the idea was to, I was struggling so hard to do my job I forgot my job is to comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable, and ask questions for those who have no voice," he said. Stelter said he respected what Karem was said he came off as a caricature to people who think journalists are trying to make it all about themselves. The Playboy reporter said that argument was not legitimate. "We've been playing by the old rules for so long that we forgot where we are with this administration," he said.
