With the confirmation that Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will be meeting next month, the president decided to praise the rival nation on social media. In response, critics made sure to fire back with opinions of their own.

Trump on North Korea

In the year and a half that he's been President of the United States, Donald Trump has not held back his opinion of North Korea and leader Kim Jong-un.

Trump infamously went on multiple Twitter rants, mocking Kim by referring to him as "Rocket Man" and "Little Rocket Man." Trump took his insults to the United Nations where he once again used the nickname in front of world leaders, putting an even bigger strain on the relationship between the two rival nations. Despite this, North Korea and South Korea recently came to a historic agreement to settle their differences, leading to a meeting between Kim and Trump next month in Singapore.

With just weeks to go before Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un get together, North Korea announced that they would be dismantling their testing site for nuclear weapons, while inviting the United States media to cover the event.

In response, the president decided to praise the country for their decision. "North Korea has announced that they will dismantle Nuclear Test Site this month, ahead of the big Summit Meeting on June 12th," Trump tweeted, while adding, "Thank you, a very smart and gracious gesture!" With tension still high, those who oppose the Trump administration gave their thoughts and weren't impressed.

Twitter erupts

After Donald Trump thanked North Korea for ending their nuclear testing site, social media went viral. "Trump is a racist, narcissistic, thin skinned, selfish, lying, sexually deviant, unhinged, pesky little man child who is unfit to be POTUS!" Bishop Talbert Swan tweeted, while adding, "resign Trump!"

"The test site that already entirely collapsed and was entirely unusable?

Impressive," a Twitter user wrote with sarcasm. "You’re still a dotard though," an additional tweet added. "The nuclear test site their dismantling was already unstable and highly damaged," yet another tweet stated.

"Wow Smart and Gracious. Two things that you aren't!" a social media user replied. "We won’t believe it until he does. We don’t believe him any more than we do you. WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY," a follow-up tweet went on to read. As the meeting with Donald Trump and North Korea inches closer, only time will tell how the future relationship between the countries plays out.
