As Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in jump-started their "new history" together, President Trump took to Twitter to confidently crow about what Politico deems the "historic" moment currently taking place in South Korea. "KOREAN WAR TO END!" he proclaimed, noting that the summit between the North and South is happening after "a furious year of missile launches and Nuclear testing." He added that the US "and all of its GREAT people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!" The president's optimism was tinged with a bit of cautiousness: "Good things are happening, but only time will tell," he noted. Trump also thanked Chinese President Xi Jinping for his role in things, tweeting, "Without him it would have been a much longer, tougher, process!"

Also on Trump's mind Friday morning besides the Korean Peninsula: his former FBI director. "Is everybody believing what is going on," he tweeted. "James Comey can't define what a leak is. He illegally leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION but doesn't understand what he did or how serious it is. He lied all over the place to cover it up. He's either very sick or very dumb." He then added a cryptic: "Remember sailor!" The Independent notes that final phrase is causing "widespread confusion," with speculation including it's a mangling of the term "Hello, sailor!," or maybe even a reference to a Japanese manga series called Sailor Moon. The Daily Beast's take seems most likely: Trump may have been referring to Kristian Saucier, the ex-Navy sailor he pardoned for taking photos inside top-secret areas of a nuclear sub.
