Trump Declares End To North Korean ‘Nuclear Threat’

Ryan Pickrell | China/Asia Pacific Reporter

President Donald Trump declared Wednesday morning that North Korea no longer poses a “nuclear threat” to the U.S.

“There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea,” Trump tweeted as he returned to the U.S. “President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. No longer – sleep well tonight!”

The president met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at a historic and unprecedented summit in Singapore Tuesday.

The two shook hands and talked about the bilateral relationship. Trump and Kim signed an agreement in which the North Koreans committed to the compete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for U.S. security assurances. The agreement, while short on substantive gains, is expected to serve as the foundation for future talks.

Trump has reportedly invited Kim to visit the U.S., and Kim has apparently extended an invitation to Trump to one day visit North Korea.

For wherever the summit may not have achieved success, it at least reduced the likelihood of war with North Korea.

For the time being, though, Kim Jong Un still has possession of his arsenal of ballistic missiles, including ICBMs able to range the U.S., as well as nuclear weaponry. Kim, however, is no longer threatening the U.S. or it’s allies with these weapons.
