Kim Jong Un’s new groundbreaking message to Donald Trump:
He’s putting an end to his long-range missile tests and planning to denuclearize by early 2021.
The North Korean leader claims rocket launches and nuclear tests have become permanently impossible after Pyongyang dismantled test sites earlier this year.
