The Trump administration is poised to extend sanctions relief to Iran under the landmark 2015 nuclear deal even as the White House seeks ways to find the Islamic republic is not complying with the agreement. Administration officials say President Donald Trump is likely to extend sanctions waivers first issued by the Obama administration by a Sept. 14, deadline. However, they say Trump remains determined to “decertify” Iranian compliance by an October deadline. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) MORE LESS

President Donald Trump began tweeting before 8 a.m. on Sunday.

Trump opened his Twitter salvo with a jab at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who Trump dubbed “Rocket Man.” (Kim pledged Saturday to achieve “equilibrium” in military force with the United States.)

“I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing,” Trump tweeted. “Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad!”

Trump also retweeted a slew of praise and memes apparently complimenting himself, as well as conservative journalist David Martosko’s criticism of the New York Times.

One of the memes the President retweeted was an edited animation of himself hitting a golf ball and striking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton appeared on national media last week to promote her campaign tell-all, titled “What Happened.”
