Trump Gets North Korea To Back Down

President Trump on Wednesday said North Korea made a “wise” decision by backing off its threat of firing missiles toward Guam. 

"Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision. The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!" Trump tweeted.
 
The president’s remarks come after reports that Kim Jong Un backed off his threat of launching four intermediate-range missile that would land in the ocean around Guam. The North Korean dictator did say he could change his mind, however.

“If the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the restraint of the DPRK [North Korea], the [North] will make an important decision as it already declared,” Kim said, according to the country’s state media.
