As the President travels ✈ from South Korea to China, the focus has shifted rather strongly towards North Korea’s nuclear programme, with Trump delivering a passionate speech at the South Korea National Assembly about the dangers of underestimating the US.
🐦 Thank you to all Americans who participated in Nat’l Rx Drug Take Back Day. A record amount of drugs collected & disposed. We can do this!
A record-breaking 912,305 pounds — or 456 tons — of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs were collected during the eighth annual Prescription Drug Take Back Day event last month, according to a press release Tuesday from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). The DEA says that’s almost 6 tons more than was collected last year, and brings the total amount of pills collected over the life of the program to more than 9 million pounds, or 4,508 tons, of unwanted drugs.
🐦 Getting ready to make a major speech to the National Assembly here in South Korea, then will be headed to China where I very much look forward to meeting with President Xi who is just off his great political victory.
🐦 Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!
Trump had repeatedly urged voters to support Gillespie leading up to Tuesday’s vote. The Republican nominee, though, kept a certain distance from the president throughout the campaign, even as he adopted some of the president’s tough immigration policies. But while Gillespie tried to strike a balance in the swing state — the only southern state Trump lost in last year’s presidential election — Democrats worked hard to tie Gillespie to the president at every turn.

🐦 The U.S., under my administration, is completely rebuilding its military, and they’re spending hundreds of billions of dollars to the newest and finest military equipment anywhere in the world, being built right now. I want peace through strength!
🐦 The North Korean regime has pursued its nuclear & ballistic missile programs in defiance of every assurance, agreement, & commmitment it has made to the U.S. and its allies. It’s broken all of those commitments. Anyone who doubts the strength or determination of the U.S. should look to our past….and you will doubt it no longer. Together, we dream of a Korea that is free, a peninsula that is safe, and families that are reunited once again!
Trump delivered a passionate speech before South Korea’s National Assembly Wednesday morning. He offered North Korea one final chance to give up their nuclear program and warned the Kim regime to “not underestimate us.”
🐦 Leaving South Korea now heading to China. Looking very much forward to meeting and being with President Xi!
🐦 On behalf of FLOTUS Melania and I, THANK YOU for an unforgettable afternoon and evening at the Forbidden City in Beijing, President Xi and Madame Peng Liyuan. We are looking forward to rejoining you tomorrow morning!
🐦 NoKo has interpreted America’s past restraint as weakness. This would be a fatal miscalculation. Do not underestimate us. AND DO NOT TRY US.
Trump warned ⚠ North Korea Wednesday against testing the U.S., and said assuming his administration would be weak as previous ones had would be a “fatal miscalculation.” Interesting choice of words, wouldn’t you say?
🐦 Looking forward to a full day of meetings with President Xi and our delegations tomorrow. THANK YOU for the beautiful welcome China! FLOTUS Melania and I will never forget it!
