President Donald Trump is currently kicking it in Japan for four days where he’s playing golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe as well as disrespecting their culture and traditions. But before he hit the golf course, he stopped to send out a tweet that should have us all pretty damn nervous — confirming that North Korea has in fact been test firing weapons, but he just doesn’t care. He intends to just keep on ignoring his top advisors and hope that his chummy relationship with North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un, will pull through.
“North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me,” the president’s tweet began.
“I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me.” Nevermind the fact that he’s a DICTATOR, huh? We’ll just go with the idea that he’s going to keep his pinky promise to the big orange idiot.
Trump then went on to break the unofficial rule that domestic politics end at the nation’s shore when he continued his tweet by lashing out at 2020 Democratic hopeful and Trump’s biggest competitor, Joe Biden, even claiming that he and Kim smack-talked the Democratic candidate together.
“I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, and also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Bidan (sic) a low IQ individual, and worse,” Trump claimed in his tweet. “Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?”

Do note that the man is bullying Biden for having a “low IQ,” yet he didn’t even spell his opponent’s name correctly.
It’s a scary world we live in when our president is confident and brazen enough to publicly announce that he’s blatantly ignoring the nation’s top security advisors and hinging the safety of our country on a pinky promise with a dictator who’s got jokes.
