A year ago, many feared that President Trump would get the US into a nuclear war with North Korea, but just when it seemed that Kim Jong-un was ready to hit the button, he changed him mind and opened talks with Trump and the US.

Hearing about the test of the nuke bomb with the B2 stealth bomber is great.
