The US president flip-flops on North Korea days after touting the success of a summit with the country’s leader Kim Jong-un.
In a presidential declaration sent to Congress, Donald Trump said North Korea’s nuclear program still poses an unusual and extraordinary threat to the U-S. Trump added that he would extend tough economic sanctions on Pyongyang for another year. Last week, he said the North’s nuclear program no longer constitutes a danger following his summit with Kim in Singapore. At the event, the two leaders signed a pledge to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. But this has stopped short of longstanding US demands for North Korea to give up its atomic arsenal.
