We’re so old we remember when Dems thought John Bolton and Donald Trump would start WWIII over North Korea. You know, back last Monday.
Here’s the latest, however:
Breaking: #NorthKorea suspends nuclear and missile tests, shutting nuclear test site ahead of Kim-Trump summit – NK State media
— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) April 20, 2018
Per state-run KCNA, Kim Jong-un said Saturday that “under the proven condition of complete nuclear weapons, we no longer need any nuclear tests, mid-range and intercontinental ballistic rocket tests, and that the nuclear test site in northern area has also completed its mission”

⚠️North Korean state media also reporting with statement from Kim Jong-un Kim: “DPRK will join international efforts and efforts to halt the nuclear test altogether." https://t.co/H1xjXDZGt3

And we’ll add the obvious, “if true,” caveat:
According to North Korea's state run media, Kim Jong-un announced that his country will suspend nuclear and missile tests and shut down a nuclear test site in the northern area. Stay skeptical but if this can be verified, huge step in right direction. https://t.co/GYkWTT9Ymw pic.twitter.com/uBXGUWSGXV

Over to you, libs. Can we cancel the duck-and-cover drills now, at the very least?
Man all that liberal media hyperventilating about Trump getting us into nuclear war sure paid off https://t.co/1wsGhg6BPD

And talk of the Nobel Peace prize, begins!
Here's a thought I was pondering on a beautiful day in Palm Beach. @realDonaldTrump is clearly not appreciated by Euro elites. But if he achieves NoKo denuclearization, would they have a leg to stand on for not embracing him with the @NobelPrize for peace?

Can you imagine Trump, Kim Jong-un, and Xi Jinping winning a Nobel Peace Prize? https://t.co/eKqbNlp1kC
