Trump’s North Korea Summit Is Officially Underway
Tuesday morning, President Trump began his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the Washington Post reports. The two leaders met and shook hands at about 9 a.m. local time in Singapore (9 p.m. EST Monday evening) and subsequently left the stage to privately begin negotiations surrounding North Korea’s nuclear arms. If the meeting is successful, it could bring historic and unprecedented change, ending decades of tension between the two countries.

The White House Has to Pay Someone to Tape Together Documents Trump Rips Up
Yes, seriously. A recent report by Politico says that the president has a habit of ripping up notes and memos that are, by law, required to be preserved as part of the Presidential Records Act — so the White House reportedly pays staffers to tape them back together.
“I’m looking at my director, and saying, ‘Are you guys serious?'” one staffer told Politico. “We’re making more than $60,000 a year, we need to be doing far more important things than this. It felt like the lowest form of work you can take on without having to empty the trash cans.”
Yikes. I mean, you gotta do what you gotta do?

Bless: You Can Now Delete Snapchat Messages After Sending Them
According to Mashable, Snapchat is finally giving the people what they want. A new update to the app now allows users to delete messages they’ve already pressed “send” on, before and after other users have already seen them. Here’s how it works: simply press and hold a message, and select the delete option when it appears. While other users will be notified that you deleted a message, it’s probably way better than them seeing whatever the alternative was, right? Let’s just hope no one manages to get a screenshot before you hit delete though!
