North Korea Accuses Trump of Ruining Mood of Potential Korean Detente by Taking Credit for Historical Feat

North Korea’s Foreign Ministry reportedly accused U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration of engaging in a “dangerous attempt” to ruin the mood of the prospective Korean detente with “misleading” claims that it is the main driver behind the potential denuclearization of the peninsula.
