Yesterday, President of the United States, Donald posted on Twitter of his intentions to reinstate the summit planned with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un.

His twitter post read: “We are having very productive talks with North Korea about reinstating the Summit which, if it does happen, will likely remain in Singapore on the same date, June 12th., and, if necessary, will be extended beyond that date.”

His tweet comes a day after he issued a statement cancelling the meeting.

In response to President Trump’s tweet, South Korea’s presidential spokesman said, “We are cautiously optimistic that hope is still alive for US-North Korea dialogue. We are continuing to watch developments carefully”.

President Trump’s change of heart came after he received a conciliatory statement from North Korea saying that it remained open to talks.

“It was a very nice statement they put out,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “We’ll see what happens—it could even be the 12th.

He also added, “We’re talking to them now. They very much want to do it. We’d like to do it”.

While President Trump remains hopefully optimistic about the summit, netizens were rather irked by the inconsistent and back-and-forth talks.

Activist Kirsten Han posted President Trump’s tweet on her Facebook page and captioned it, “What an annoying pendulum”.
