Trump says North Korea still poses an ‘extraordinary threat’, despite historic summi

President Donald Trump cited an “unusual and extraordinary threat” to US national security as he acted on Friday to maintain long-standing economic restrictions on North Korea, including the freezing of any assets in the United States, Independent reports.

The official declaration, contained in a notice to Congress, came despite Mr Trump’s assertion earlier this month that his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ended the North’s nuclear weapons threat.

“Sleep well tonight!” Mr Trump tweeted on 13 June, the day after he and Mr Kim met in Singapore.
