Trump slams ‘FAKE’ media coverage of N-Korea meeting

Washington: United States President Donald Trump’s tirade against the media does not seem to come to an end, as he yet again tagged it “FAKE” for the coverage of North Korea-US proposed talks on denuclearisation.

Taking to Twitter, Trump said, “In the first hours after hearing that North Korea’s leader wanted to meet with me to talk denuclearization and that missile launches will end, the press was startled & amazed.They couldn’t believe it. But by the following morning the news became FAKE.They said so what, who cares!”

In an earlier tweet, Trump expressed confidence in Pyongyang’s “promise” to suspend missile tests, and remarked, “I believe they will honor that commitment!”

The US-North Korea politics made a breakthrough on Friday when Kim Jong invited Trump for a meeting, and the latter duly accepted to meet by May.

A senior US official said North Korea offered to suspend their nuclear missile testing alongside their invitation for talks. The official also said there are no plans to suspend the upcoming planned military exercises with South Korea.

Since then, Trump has said the deal with North Korea was very much in the making and will be, if completed, a “very good one” for the world. (ANI)
