Trump takes credit for saving Olympics, averting nuclear war with North Korea

He also claimed dialogue between North and South about Winter Games was thanks to him, in interview with Tucker Carlson

Donald Trump claimed the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics would not have happened if it weren’t for him, in an interview with political talk show host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday. 

The former U.S. president, who is currently vying for the Republican presidential nomination in the 2024 election, told Carlson that he persuaded North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to send DPRK athletes to the Winter Games and claimed that if he had not been elected in 2016, a nuclear war would have broken out on the peninsula.
