‘He Promised Me He Wouldn’t Be’: Trump Says He ‘Hopes’ North Korea’s Kim Isn’t Building Nuclear Weapons

President Donald Trump‘s confidence in North Korean leader Kim Jong Un keeping his promise to the U.S. seems to be dwindling as the president couldn’t give a solid answer on whether or not the foreign adversary has stopped their nuclear weapons program.

His answer, given in an ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos this week, is a far cry from Trump’s total confidence in Kim after their first meeting in 2018.

Trump sent a tweet after the meeting where he announced that North Korea was “no longer a nuclear threat.”

Trump somewhat admitted to Stephanopoulos this week that the statement might’ve been made prematurely. “Well, it could change,” Trump said, touting that there has been no nuclear a testing in the country, then quickly correcting himself to say that North Korea has been conductiung short-range missile tests.

“Now, I will let you know if it goes the other way,” Trump continued. “And it can, and it can happen instantly.”

On whether or not Trump believed that North Korea was done with its nuclear program, the president was unsure and unable to provide the “sleep well tonight!” confidence as he did last year:

Stephanopoulos: Do you think he’s still building nuclear weapons? 

Trump: I don’t know. I hope not. He promised me he wouldn’t be. He promised me that he wouldn’t be testing. 

Watch the video below:

At the end of the day, Trump still believes he has a good relationship with the foreign dictator.

“I believe he respects me,” the president said. “I get along with him really well. I think I understand him, and I think he understands me.”

Creating North Korea into a pile of dust with a squadron of B-52’s is the only remaining way to get Fat Boy’s attention (if he survives). Trump has his number and ZIP code.

BTW: WHAT is Trump doing talking to Clinton’s puppet boy?

Anyone who thinks President Trump does not know what’s going on with UNstable is not playing with a full deck.
Another card allusion is ‘keep your cards close to your vest.’ although I’ve also heard ‘ close to your chest.’
Kim Jong Dung is a four-flusher who wishes he had an Ace up his sleeve.
President Trump is the Dealer.
