On Thursday night the news broke that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un would meet with Donald Trump about potentially denuclearizing the country. In response, Trump decided to speak out on social media.

Trump on North Korea

The relationship between the United States and North Korea has been rocky for years.

North Korea has a poor reputation on the world stage, especially under the leadership of Kim Jong-un. Since the election of Donald Trump just over a year ago, the two leaders have made it known that they are not on the same page. Trump made headlines earlier this year by publicly insulting Kim, referring to him as "Rocket Man" during a series of tweets, as well as during a speech in front of the United Nations.

As reported by The Hill on March 8, South Korean National security adviser Chung Eui-yong spoke to Donald Trump on Thursday and later addressed the press at the White House to inform them that Kim Jong-un would suspend all nuclear testing while planning to meet with Trump by May in an attempt to possibly abandon their nuclear plans.

In a tweet sent out to elaborate, Trump was quick to gloat. "Kim Jong-un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze," he wrote. "Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached,"Trump added, while concluding, "Meeting being planned!"

Instant reaction

Following Donald Trump's tweet about his upcoming meeting with Kim Jong-un, those who oppose the president didn't seem impressed in their responses.

"And it has nothing to do with you. Keep your mouth and big a** out of it. Let the grown-ups work it out. STOP TWEETING," one tweet read.

"You have a chance to do your first good thing since taking office.

We aren’t counting on you. Surprise us!" a Twitter user wrote. "Why don't you put the Twitter down and manage the country you clown," an additional tweet added.

"You'll find a way to credit yourself if anything goes well, no doubt," a social media user stated. "What are you going to do about Putin's nuclear threat video he put out that shows it hitting Florida?

What's that, you say? Nothing? I didn't think so," yet another tweet pointed out. As Donald Trump continues to gloat about his meeting with Kim Jong-un, his critics made sure to sound off and express their disdain for the current administration.
