CNN’s North Korean correspondent Will Ripley admitted he was “stunned” with the progress that Trump is making with North Korea given their yuge announcement tonight.
Ripley calls it “extraordinary” and says it’s a “huge win” for Trump. He also read a statement from a North Korean official praising the development and saying that they have turned a corner:
Kim has committed himself to the path of denuclearization and will now focus solely on economic growth and improving the national economy, the source said.
The North Korean leader has realized the best path forward is to normalize relations with other countries. He is finally being recognized by the international community, and this is a historic, timely opportunity, the source said.
This is an encouraging development, but we should probably hold off on the Nobel Peace Prize talk until an agreement is actually hammered out…..
