Trump: ‘No Chaos’ in WH, ‘Possible Progress’ in N. Korea

In tweets posted Tuesday morning, President Trump said “possible progress” was being made in talks about North Korea’s nuclear weapons— and claimed that there is “no chaos, only great energy” in the White House. Reports emerged early Tuesday that Kim Jong Un told South Korean leaders that North Korea was willing to “disband efforts to build its nuclear arsenal if military threats against their country were resolved.” The president tweeted, “For the first time in many years, a serious effort is being made by all parties concerned. The World is watching and waiting! May be false hope, but the U.S. is ready to go hard in either direction!” The president also claimed that White House chaos was a “Fake News narrative,” tweeting that “People will always come & go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection).” He also told reporters Tuesday afternoon that "the statements coming out of South Korea and North Korea have been very positive...So we’ll see how it all comes about.” This comes after recent and possible future White House shake-ups, from the resignation of Hope Hicks to reports of National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster preparing to leave in the coming months.
