North Korea's state-run news agency hailed the summit between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un as "epoch-making" and claimed that Trump agreed to lift sanctions on Pyongyang, USA Today reports.

In actuality, the president said sanctions "will come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor."

But that's what state-run news outlets do, taking advantage of every shred of propaganda it can to prop up the hermit nation's bonafides, USA Today reports.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) called the Singapore summit an "epoch-making meeting much awaited by the whole world," USAT reported.

It also said Trump "expressed his intention to halt the U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises, which Pyongyang regards as provocation," and would "offer security guarantees to the DPRK," the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

Ending the military exercises with South Korea was not part of the joint agreement with North Korea but was instead mentioned by Trump in his press conference, stunning both his own Pentagon and South Korea.

Trump also tweeted about ending the military drills.

He also declared that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat to the U.S. and that all Americans should "sleep well tonight."
