    Kim-Trump Summit (Kim 3 / Trump 0)

    What did Trump get other than a photo op? Kim has made Trump his b!tch, embarrassing him at every turn.

    North Korea is expanding it's nuclear facilities, Trump suspended military exercises with South Korea, and now....

    North Korea Slams U.S. ‘Gangster-Like’ Demands at Nuclear Talks
    North Korea slammed the U.S. position on denuclearization during two days of meetings with Mike Pompeo as “gangster-like,” hours after the secretary of state cited “good-faith negotiations” with his counterparts in Pyongyang.

    In its statement, North Korea said the U.S. side “came up only with its unilateral and gangster-like demand for denuclearization,” adding that the U.S. call for “complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization,” or CVID, ran “counter to the spirit of the Singapore summit.”

    Trust between the two sides was now at a “dangerous” stage that could lead the country to falter in its commitment to give up nuclear weapons, according to the statement, which added that North Korea still has faith in Trump.

    Every Presidency faces at least one crisis episode. When these occur credibility counts.

    Trump's credibility on the world stage has been (at best) tarnished.

    My condolences and prayers for the families of the victims including those waiting to have the children returned.

    BTW - Secretary of State Pompeo, who obviously poured honey into Trump's ears, now looks like an over weight man in an empty suit.

    Huh? But, but, but Trump said this was all fixed. He said we were safe now. Snake trumpeted it as one of Trump's great victory's. Nobel prize!

    So confused.

    Maybe Trump was just joking... speaking metaphorically when he said North Korea was 'no longer a nuclear threat'?

    Contract? What contract is the "stable genius" talking about? Is it better than the one with Iran?

    Well, at least Trump hopes that his poorly designed tariffs on Chinese goods won't put negative pressure on his poorly designed "agreement" with NK.

    Hopes & prayers... the duct tape of a good strategy!

    Why can't the GOP just flush this turd and let Pence have a go? #ITMFA He has not made a single deal in 18 months and he said he was a deal maker.

    Rule #1 of the GOP. Never admit you made a mistake--double down.

    Trump's angry populism got them power...and now they need him to keep it. And until KFC gets Trump, they'll be in bed with him. Pence is the backup plan---the poster-boy GOP Republican. Rich. White. And annoyingly religious.

    Kim took Trump for a sucker. He got everything he wanted and didn't have to give up anything.

    Pompeo comes to town and Kim does not even show up, He went to a potato farm instead.



    Despite this massive fail the deplorables still pretend this was a great victory for Dear Leader Trump.

    Aw, trouble in paradise:

    The Trump administration asked the United Nations this week to reprimand China and Russia over allegations that they sold refined petroleum products to North Korea in violation of the international body’s sanctions against Pyongyang, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Chinese and Russian firms continue to help the pariah nation import oil products in excess of U.N.-mandated caps, including through previously sanctioned tankers, according to a declassified intelligence briefing prepared for the U.N.’s committee on North Korea sanctions and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.


    Those alleged efforts undermine the U.S. and U.N. efforts to persuade Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons program by relieving the sanctions pressure U.S. officials believe has helped bring the country to negotiate denuclearization with Washington.


    President Donald Trump earlier this week blamed China for undermining negotiations with North Korea a day after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Pyongyang left talks uncertain.

    Kim and DONT in happier times:

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    Now it's (Kim 4 / Trump 0)

    So it's been 3 days now and not one of the usual Trump defenders have made a single attempt to polish this turd.

    Well, since they didn't hear Trumpy crowing about it from the highest hills, or from a nasty tweet, they don't know that it happened.



    What's Trumpy gonna say? That Little Rocket Man made a complete fool out of him?

    Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2, Obama, now Trump. The President changes but the song remains the same.

    Everyone of them has used the same tactics, negotiations, concessions, more negotiations. Get China to help, get the UN to help.

    Sure, pile on Trump, it's fun and doesn't hurt anyone but it sure doesn't appear he's any more or less successful than those who came before him.

    But hey, if it gives a few the opportunity to enjoy venting, go for it!

    Maybe Kim decided to take a page out of the Trump playbook, and reneged on the "contract"?
    "When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking." -- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
