Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

North Korea to Freeze Nuclear Tests Ahead of Trump Summit

HeadlineApr 23, 2018

North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un said Friday he will stop testing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and will close a site where at least six prior nuclear tests were held. The announcement came less than a week ahead of a planned meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and as the Trump administration makes plans for an unprecedented face-to-face summit between Kim and President Trump. In response, Trump tweeted, “they have agreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!” In fact, North Korea has said that it will suspend tests of its nuclear program. Trump has previously threatened to use nuclear weapons against North Korea, saying he would “totally destroy” the nation of 25 million people.
