(Jun. 12, 2018) — At approximately 4:30 p.m. EDT, President Trump tweeted his reflections on his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un earlier on Tuesday in Singapore, 12 times zones away from Washington, DC.  “Heading back home from Singapore after a truly amazing visit,” he tweeted.  “Great progress was made on the denuclearization of North Korea.”

Referring to three American citizens released by the North Korean regime on May 10, Trump wrote, “Hostages are back home,” and then, “will be getting the remains of our great heroes back to their families” in a reference to U.S. servicemen lost but never returned after the “Korean conflict,” which ended with an armistice in 1953.

Trump added that he struck up a rapport with Kim Jong-Un, whose nation has been suffering from crippling economic sanctions since it began demonstrating the capabilities of its nuclear arsenal last summer.  At that time, Trump had threatened North Korea with unprecedented “fire and fury” if it did not change its ways.  At that time, it was feared that a nuclear war might occur, but on Tuesday, Trump was tweeting about “peace.”

Finally, Trump tweeted a link to a video posted on the White House Facebook page which some sources reported earlier Trump had shown to Kim Jong-Un during their meeting.

The active link to the video is here:

The video presented Kim with the choice between exercising “vision and leadership or not” and “a great life or isolation.”
