June 13, 2018: What to Know 

  • The New York Times describes the joint statement from President Trump and Kim Jong-un, following their denuclearization summit as "skimpy as the summit meeting was extravagant." Trump has made one major concession public, saying he would suspend joint military exercises on the Korean Peninsula, something that the Times says took the Pentagon and the nation of South Korea by surprise. Trump wasted no time in tweeting this morning that North Korea was "no longer a nuclear threat."

  • Trump is lashing out at Robert DeNiro who directed a couple of F-bombs toward the President on the June 10 Tony Awards. Trump tweeted that DeNiro was "a very low IQ individual who has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies."

  • Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that actor Alec Baldwin, who has frequently portrayed Trump on Saturday Night Live, insists that he would "absolutely win" if he ran for president. Appearing on a radio show on June 11, Baldwin said, "I would 1000 percent win," but added that he probably wouldn't run for office because, "I have to do Match Game," referring to the game show he hosts on ABC.
  • The Boise Fire Department has lifted its "dangerous condition" warning for the Boise River. BFD officials said they were now in position to begin clearing debris from the river in the coming days in anticipation of a float season, which has yet to officially begin.
  • The Walt Disney Company has unveiled its first teaser trailer for the new live-action remake of Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton. Dumbo is one of a number of Disney classics that are being adapted into live action reboots, including Aladdin, Lion King and Mulan. Dumbo, which will open next March, co-stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito. Take a look:
