US President Donald Trump congratulated himself on his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, insisting that country is no longer a nuclear threat. The remark was part of a blast of tweets that Trump fired off even as Air Force One touched down at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.

Trump hailed the summit in Singapore with Kim, in which the North Korean leader agreed to work towards denuclearising his country. "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea," he wrote. "Before taking office people were assuming that we were going to War with North Korea. President Obama said that North Korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. No longer — sleep well tonight!" Trump added.
