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!

I bet Whell is ecstatic!

WASHINGTON, June 21 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday that North Korea was blowing up four of its big test sites and that a process of [B]"total denuclearization ... has already started taking place...

Asked on Wednesday whether North Korea has done anything toward denuclearization since a landmark summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters:

“No, I'm not aware of that. I mean, obviously, it's the very front end of a process. The detailed negotiations have not begun. I wouldn't expect that at this point.”

Which is it, Dotard?

Lots of people have problems using proper tense.

I heard on NPR a while back that many of Trump's tweets are ghost written and the ghosts have to dumb down their grammar.

Who would be writing tweets at 3:00am other than ghosts?

Don't worry, Donny told us they're no longer a threat!

If you read the source report, there's no evidence that the nuclear facility's reactor is operating.

Although a small water discharge is visible from the cooling water outfall pipe going into the river, that discharge is less than has been observed previously when the reactor was fully operational. It may simply be that this is all the water needed at this time to carry away the heat from the residual radioactivity in the reactor, if the reactor is currently shut down. Additionally, unlike last February, no visible steam is being vented from the generator building that would confirm that the reactor is operating, but we cannot rule out that this is simply due to the time of year and insufficient image resolution.

Also:

Continued work at the Yongbyon facility should not be seen as having any relationship to North Korea’s pledge to denuclearize. The North’s nuclear cadre can be expected to proceed with business as usual until specific orders are issued from Pyongyang.

'North Korea Has Not Returned Soldiers' Remains: Pompeo'

"Despite President Donald Trump’s boast at a rally that he had secured the remains of U.S. troops killed during the Korean War, his secretary of state says North Korea is yet to send any.
Around 7,700 U.S. soldiers remain unaccounted for from the conflict, the majority of whom are presumed dead in North Korea. As the U.S. military moved 100 wooden coffins to the border between North and South Korea in preparation last week, as Trump told a rally in Minnesota: “we got back our great fallen heroes, the remains, in fact today already 200 have been sent back.”" Newsweek

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...cid=spartandhp

Wow...nothing is sacred with this bellowing orange cretin. He'll casually and compulsively lie about anything if he'll lie about the repatriation of MIA/KIA soldier's remains. There are many American families and our allies families who still are waiting for the return of their fathers, brothers and uncles remains from North Korea. Unbelievable...

Oh, yeh?

U.S. intelligence officials, citing newly obtained evidence, have concluded that North Korea does not intend to fully surrender its nuclear stockpile, and instead is considering ways to conceal the number of weapons it has and secret production facilities, according to U.S. officials.

The evidence, collected in the wake of the June 12 summit in Singapore, points to preparations to deceive the United States about the number of nuclear warheads in North Korea’s arsenal as well as the existence of undisclosed facilities used to make fissile material for nuclear bombs, the officials said.

The findings support a new, previously undisclosed Defense Intelligence Agency estimate that North Korea is unlikely to denuclearize.

The assessment stands in stark contrast to President Trump’s exuberant comments following the summit, when he declared on Twitter that “there is no longer a nuclear threat” from North Korea. At a recent rally, he also said he had “great success’’ with Pyongyang.
