Twitter Stunned After Trump Says He Hasn’t Read North Korea Letter He Called ‘Very Nice’ Minutes Earlier

President Trump met today with North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol, who delivered a letter from Kim Jong Un himself.

The President spoke to reporters after the meeting ended (video above, via ABC), and said it was nice and “very interesting.”

He also remarked, “Oh, would you like to see what’s in that letter… At some point, it may be appropriate––I’ll be able to give it to you maybe.”

But minutes later, when asked about the letter again, the President said he hasn’t read it yet (video via C-SPAN):

“I haven’t seen the letter yet. I purposely didn’t open the letter. I haven’t opened it. I didn’t open it in front of the director. I said, ‘Would you want me to open it?’ He said, ‘You can read it later.’ I may be in for a big surprise, folks.”

Needless to say, people were a little taken aback by that:
