CNN is downplaying it as a complete failure. They and the rest left don't want this to happen at all. They'd rather NK have a nuke than have them disarm under Trump!
The wackjob Rodman called out Obummer on it as well.

Who pulled off what and what do you know that no else seems to know?

Now, I don't know anyone that wouldn't like relations to be better with N. Korea and no one is saying anything different. What CNN and pretty much the rest of the world would like to know is, how did this trip compare to what had been said, like no concessions. N. Korea apparently got the war games cancelled according to Trump, except that no one seems sure as our military doesn't know it yet, and what did N. Korea do to accomplish this? What did they concede?

Most of the few things in the agreement were things N. Korea had agreed to several times before, and didn't follow through.

Again, what was pulled off?

The only thing that's been pulled off recently is higher tariffs from and on our allies, which equates to higher prices for things we buy. To make it simple, that means we can afford to buy less with what we have.

A face to face meeting Jim. That is what was pulled off. That stands alone.

As far as all of the rest the agreements made by Dems in the past that didn't work. Time will tell. You can't call that a failure until it has failed.

It was a first meeting. It was not a completion of anything.

“If you have to ask...”
The significance of this meeting is many and multifold.
Just getting the POTUS and young Kim to the table is a big start.

To be honest, over the last 2 years or so my opinion on how to approach NK has changed.
i used to believe that a sniper with a 50 cal was the answer.
But as I’ve educated myself about NK, the Kim dynasty, and the fervent following of the people (even in the face of labor camps and what amounts to domestic terrorism), I’ve come to realize that Kim is to be treated with kid gloves.
The isolated reality of the NK people dictates that any and all “solutions” are rooted in the perception of young Kim claiming a victory...at least in the eyes of the populace.
They are akin to the fables of Japanese soldiers who live in a cave and don’t know the war is over.
They truly believe that Kim and his nukes are the sole reason that their country exists today and that the Kim dynasty is the absolute sole reason that the world has not invaded them.
Remember that the Korean War is, and has been, active for 70 years. There was never a peace treaty...only a cease fire.

I personally an OK with Kim appearing as the savior of NK yet again if it means deescalation of a nuclear situation.
It is my firm belief that the LAST THING Kim wants is to fire off a missile at a hard target.
His one and only priority and life mission is the perpetuation of the regime...not the termination of the regime.
Firing a missile is the end of the regime and marks the failure of Kim and the end of the NK Nation.
So...he must be victorious.
That’s cool, and Trump knows this.

Ok, he did have a meeting even though it appears the South Koreans led the effort. They do have the most to gain though, and the N. Korean President made the suggestion to meet.
But, you're still going to give Trump credit for pulling it off? OK.


I'm glad there is talk, and it's possible the young leader is not the same as his father and would like to make N Korea more successful.

Ya know, I hate it when people just have to make a political statement. The previous agreements have been with both Democrats and Republicans that weren't lived up to.

OK then. Someone other than an American Democrat pulled it off. And Trump was involved minus any American Democrat.

Ok, Trump was present. It's too bad no knows what was gained or agreed to that hadn't already been agreed to in the past.
Ya, Trump was present for the photo op. I think that is part of the "ART OF THE DEAL," lots of pictures.

No more war games.
I hope Trump is more trustworthy with the N. Koreans than with our allies, like when he agreed at the G-7 Summit to support it, and after leaving went back on his agreement.

You can worship him all you want, but he is not an honorable or trustworthy person, but then we all knew that when you voted for him.

And I guess the messiah Obama was. Or Hillary would have been. :indifferent0001:

Just about everyone has posted their reasonable thoughts or questions, except you.

There is no reasonable response to your typical type of generic idiotic postings. The fact you posted as you do is enough reason to explain Trump getting elected.

If you have posted any reasonable thoughts here....I missed it! hil:)
Just because you disagree does not mean my thoughts are not reasonable or idiotic. I stand by my opinion that the more YOU haters bitch, moan, complain, and cry about President Trump....the more I am confident and assured we are on the Right track to MAGA! Your whining is the best barometer to measure our progresses.... The reason Trump got elected is because of whinny Liberal's such as yourself!

The NK Summit was a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge success in establishing communications for future progresses towards peace. :thumb:

That's my opinion, and a BIG dose of reality for you and BTW......Thank You and all of those like you for being who and what you are....otherwise Americans might not have opened their eyes and Blessed us with President Trump! BEST ELECTION EVER! :partyguy:

The fact you posted as you do is enough reason to explain Trump getting elected.

Thanks, but I can't take ALL of the credit for the BEST ELECTION EVER!.....I just do my share, but thanks again for noticing... :)hand

The socialist/progressive/commie Dems. and their supporters have no factual or reasonable explanation of Pres. Trumps accomplishments. So they repeat the stupidity of the leftists to minimize any thing Trump does.

I think Pompeo is bad ass, and has negotiated with North Korea utilizing hard core terms. Bolton is hard core and will not let any terms of any agreement slip through the cracks.

The President has said congress will have to agree with any treaty and make it legal, unlike the previous muslim traitor we had in the White House.

The dems are so worried that some are throwing Piglosi under the bus!!
The dems are stalling immigration reform because they don't want something done under republican rule, the economy is rolling along with 4% growth with companies investing and expanding, true unemployment numbers are at 7%.

If the deal with NK goes through, the dems are afraid that people will realize that their only platform is dividing the nation. They rely on the impoverished vote, so they have to maintain an impoverished and dependent community. Without people dependent of government handouts, they're screwed.

Chumpy-the-Russian-puppet just stated that Kimmy and his country is the pattern for the new US of A! "Kim talks and his people sit up and listen.....Like what the US should do with me!"

Let's get rid of democracy......No more elections....Just stand at attention when lord trump talks! (Or maybe when Putin speaks)

Leaders that Trump admires; 1) Putin

2) Kim Jung Un

3) Duterte (Phillipines)

4) Hitler (Has a copy of Mein Kampf in his nightstand)

Remember, Trump is the BEST leader we have EVER had (His words)...better than Teddy, Reagan, Ike, Nixon and Lincoln!

I'm glad you're so much better off today than say, a couple of years ago. It doesn't seem that many have seen what you see.

Regardless, with the 25% tariff on most things coming into the USA, your buying ability will soon be reduced by much more than your measly income increase or tax reductions.
Just think of how it works. Product comes into USA and the price is instantly increased 25% due to the tariff. Next each middle man adds their percentage of increase on product price plus the tariff of 25%, not just the middle man mark-up on the price of the product alone. Each subsequent additional middle man also adds their percentage increase, which is often several middle men and distribution sources.

Wow, that makes us all better off. Or, does it?
Tell me how that makes anyone better off. It doesn't, it means we all pay a lot more for the same product.
Just the recent increased price of gas will eat up the majority of any tax break.

In case you don't realize it, were all screwed. Enjoy the ride.

Yes, and they will try to get the snowflakes/millennials out to vote for the "Pocohantas" or the Commie Bernie, so they can get free everything from tax paying workers.:((((((

I guess you think its OK for all of those countries to charge the same or more tariffs on what we ship there. He's just trying to give them a taste of their own medicine and eventually they will lower their tariffs

I can recall Gas during Obama being much higher that it is now with no tax decrease. Didn't hear you whining then.
