Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thinkprogress.org: “Trump gaslights the American public about North Korea’s nuclear weapons”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

After arriving back in the Washington, D.C. area on Wednesday morning following his trip to Singapore for a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, President Trump posted tweets proclaiming that Americans can now “sleep well” now because “There is 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. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!

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’s tweets are wrong, as North Korea maintains its nuclear capabilities and the agreement he signed with Kim doesn’t detail any sort of verifiable denuclearization process.

Instead, it merely says, “Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” The agreement does not detail how North Korea will “work toward complete denuclearization” or any sort of inspection process other countries can rely on to verify it is actually doing so, nor does it require the Kim regime to give up any of his nukes at any particular time.
