In a ‘if you’re gonna do it I’m gonna do it first’ affair, US President Donald Trump had cancelled his much-anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. In a turn of events as head-turning as a Hindi TV serial, he met a North Korean diplomat the very next day and voila! The summit was back on track.
The highlight of the meeting was handing over of an envelope evidently much larger than Trump’s hands.

But what was even more intriguing was that Donald Trump tried to tease the media persons whether they’d like to know its content, terming the letter as ‘nice’ and ‘interesting’, without divulging any further. But just eight minutes later, he admitted that he hadn’t read the letter at all.
So brainy, much intelligent.
Donald Trump says his letter from Kim Jong-un was “a very nice letter”.

And Tweeps had a field day roasting their favourite President:
He meant the envelope, silly! It was a nice envelope. A very nice one. And big too. Nobody kows more about envelopes than he does. He’s seen a lot of envelopes and this was a nice one. Bigger than anyone else’s. Really, really big And nicer than anyone else’s. Huge and nice!

Must have taken many stamps to post the letter.
Maybe he’s a stamp collector and it had a nice stamp. And it was in a bigly envelope…

Schrodinger’s cat is out of the envelope!
It’s a good example of Schrodinger’s letter. It is both opened and closed at the same time.

Maybe just had confetti and that’s why he couldn’t read it?
