+ “President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. No longer—sleep well tonight!” The Atlantic: Donald Trump Actually Seems to Believe He Denuclearized North Korea.

+ Evan Osnos in The New Yorker: The Biggest Winner at the US-North Korea Summit: China.

+ “Yeah, but so have a lot of other people done some really bad things. I mean I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done.” Trump Defended Kim Jong Un’s Record Of Human Rights Abuses After The Summit. (And for good measure, he saluted a North Korean army general.)
