North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met with President Donald Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, earlier this year.

President Donald Trump tweeted last week that he was reversing certain sanctions that had been placed on North Korea by his administration.

But the tweet has actually not altered anything on the ground, a senior Pentagon official said Wednesday.

“As I understand it, none of the sanctions have been removed or changed since the tweet,” Randall Schriver, assistant secretary of defense for Indo-Pacific securities affairs, told a House Armed Services Committee hearing.
