President Trump undercut his own Treasury Department on Friday by announcing that he was rolling back North Korea sanctions that it imposed just a day ago. The move, announced on Twitter, was a remarkable display of dissension within the Trump administration and showed how actively the White House is intervening in policies that are traditionally handled by career officials in the Treasury and State Departments. Mr. Trump appeared to confuse the day that the North Korea sanctions were announced, saying that it occurred on Friday rather than on Thursday.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said the decision was a favor to Mr. Kim.

"President Trump likes Chairman Kim, and he doesn't think these sanctions will be necessary," she said.

God, what an idiot Donald Trump is. It's almost satisfying seeing Kim play him the way he plays us.

Fat Nixon sees his legacy of making a deal with a lunatic fading away and is desperate to get his mojo back with rocketman.

Kimmy played him like a Stadavarius.

Putin told him NK couldn't launch their nuclear weapons. Trump believed him.

A former FBI acting director has alleged Donald Trump dismissed advice from his own security agencies on the threat posed by North Korea's missiles, saying "I don't care. I believe Putin."

"The president launched into several unrelated diatribes. One of those was commenting on the recent missile launches by the government of North Korea. And, essentially, the president said he did not believe that the North Koreans had the capability to hit us here with ballistic missiles in the United States. And he did not believe that because President Putin had told him they did not. President Putin had told him that the North Koreans don't actually have those missiles," said McCabe.
