Trump wants to meet with Kim because Kim is a smart cookie that knows how to stroke his ego.
Oh please.....spare us this spectacle Donnie boy. You have no chance of negotiating anything meaningful with any country. Face it; you are a huge failure. Just about everyone finds you to be an incompetent fool and want you to be gone so we can put some adults in charge.The footnote next to your name in history books will be 'fake POTUS '.
Well, trump has to live somewhere.
In South Korea they do eat dogs, it's on the menu. But in the North, the dogs eat you.
"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea." - Donald Trump after the last summit
When Trump said he was a deal maker, I didn't realize he was talking about making up deals that never happened.
Trump just loves being played, again, he is the worst-ever president in U.S. history.
The USA needs to be prepared for Trump striking out at the country through dealings with dictators, knowing full well his party will protect his sorry behind. People with his disorder strike out when cornered.
I know that Donald Trump prays to Jesus every night and I know that God while guide his hands.
Baby sumo meets orange sumo. They should meet in the Octagon in Sumo outfits, and winner take all. The pay per view sales would be astronomical.
I think the really sad part of all this is that Trump can't tell when he's being taken for a ride. He's convinced himself that he's actually accomplishing something.
WHY?? Because the first summit produced such excellent results? (sarc)
Moving ahead with a second summit because Trump needs a place to go after Mueller indicts the entire Trump crime syndicate. Kim will shelter them in one of his labor camps.
Moving ahead with a second one because the first one went so well......for Kim.
Hey Don, under Obama the federal deficit was cut in half, but under you it is going back to a trillion dollar yearly federal deficit.
Talk about a glutton for punishment. Kim Jong Un played Trump for a fool the first time around, now Bone Spur is going back for a second helping?
Hey Don, under Obama the unemployment rate was turned around from spiking upward to a long term 7 year downward trend and a 3% reduction in unemployment, but under you the trend has simply continued and has only gone down 1%
Hey Don, under Obama the DOW rose 149%, but under you it's gone up only 23%.
"The North Koreans calculated that they can come up with better deal from talking to the president directly."
Yup... Kim can flatter him some more, and walk away with the legitimacy and visibility of a one on one summit with the president of the U.S. while at worst giving up nothing, but perhaps even getting more for that nothing. OF COURSE they want to talk to Trump.
Who knows, maybe it will break the stalemate? It looks like we don't have much to lose.
Trump is using this as food for his base, See, I am the great peace maker and only "I" can achieve this, Of course this makes Kim a GIANT hero in North Korea where the govt press will show him as the great negotiator as powerful as the American president, Both of these boys are phony,Now, the real question is " Will China just sit back and let Kim give away anything to the US during this prewar period between US and China? Watch that and see where it goes,
But how is Trump going to get his marching orders from Putin, in the current state of affairs?
President Turnip is being played. Again.
This will result in nothing. Time and money wasted.The two Koreas have made progress on their own, leave it alone.
No doubt this will become the Kim and Trump Summit Photo-ops 2.0, and the only winner to come away will be Kim who gets what he wants while the US gets nothing. Building up arms is not a sign that NK cares about actually disarming their nukes. It is pretty much NK playing the 'game' again, as they always do.
It's incredible to see Trump get it wrong every single time. He's never right. It's unbelievable. You'd think he'd just be right by accident once in a while.
Second Summit"? When was the first? That photo op for Kim and Donnie certainly shouldn't count as a summit if it only resulted in a one page treaty full of sound and fury signifying nothing.
Kim to Donald. "Check."
Oh goodie. More huge letters to each other and another piece of paper saying we're gonna. big whoop.
don needs the name of a SK reporter Kim wants to show up in the DMZ
We have the stupidest leader in the world.
Trump is rewarding the North Korean regime for hiding development of underground missile building sites and failing to follow through with the vague pledges made before. And this is after announcing to the US citizens that there is no more threat of nuclear weapons from North Korea. All of this makes perfect sense, if one starts with the realization that Trump is clearly working for North Korea, not the USA.
Trump is falling hook, line, and sinker for the old-school DPRK ploy; abruptly call for parley, make inconsequential concessions, receive substantial concessions from the West, feign outrage, and withdraw. They have done this many times before and will continue to do so in the future.
What the Trump administration - and arguably the last 3 administrations - have failed to understand is that North Korea's entire global strategy revolves around a radical and all-encompassing self defense. They will never, ever denuclearize because, in their mind, the threat of nuclear retaliation both legitimizes their regime and guarantees them protection against any foreign intervention.
Kim is still building nukes. He learned he can compliment Trump and do whatever he wants.
The first step is to encourage the DPRK to rejoin the NPT so that the IAEA can resume monitoring
What a fool Trump is! He is being played by North Korea.
Has he decided on a new farm to give away for nothing in return? Needs a new picture for something?
Is he thinking about Trump Tower NK and wants to find out what Kim would like in his free $50m penthouse?
What is Trump's motivation: 1. Does he truly want to bring an end to the Korean conflict and sign a treaty between the North and South? 2. Does he wants the Nobel Peace Prize noted on his list of accomplishments? 3. Both. 4. None of the above?
