In fact, Trump didn’t tweet about North Korea at all that day. What was on his mind? The “Phony Witch Hunt” he claims Democrats are engaged in, his grievances against the “Fake (Corrupt) News Media,” and domestic politics – along with a pro forma tweet acknowledging his meeting with Poland’s president that day.
