Trump Agrees To Meet North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un

Trump Agrees To Meet North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un:  In a rather surprising move, President Donald Trump has agreed in principle to meet directly with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in what could be the biggest breakthrough in the tense nuclear saber-rattling that’s been going on since the President took office in January 2017.

Now let’s see, we’ll have two big fat, narcissistic psychopaths with bad haircuts locked-up in the same room?  Pardon my skepticism, but I don’t see how this could end well for anybody.  My guess is, Trump just agreed to this meeting so he can compare nuclear button sizes.  Meanwhile, North Korea agreed because Donald Trump is about the only person on Earth who could actually make someone like Kim Jong Un look good.

Of course, Trump supporters are quick to define this meeting as yet another great accomplishment of their dear leader - and to some degree, I agree with them.  I mean, under President Trump - we’ve had the biggest stock market drop ever in a single day, the most White House staffers who were forced to quit or get fired in a single year and lastly - Mr Trump has the distinction of having the absolute lowest approval rating of any president in the history of the country.  Of course, in all fairness to the President - he’s still quite popular in Russia.

And now, to add insult to injury, we’re gonna have to listen to Trump taking credit for cooling tensions which he created in the first place.  And in an attempt to boost America’s prestige with Kim and the North Koreans, its been rumored he may ask Stormy Daniels to accompany him to some of the meetings.  My guess is that Trump will emerge from those meetings and announce he’s made a historic agreement with Kim Jong-un - to build a new Trump golf course and luxury hotel in North Korea.  Now the about the only question left unanswered is - will the North Koreans to agree to host WrestleMania 2020?

First the tariffs, and now North Korea are attempts to deflect and distract.

Trump is manipulating the headlines in order to redirect the National conversation.

Legitimizing North Korea without getting anything in return is just about the dumbest foreign policy move a President can make...

North Korea has been seeking this opportunity ever since the 38th parallel was established as the border between the two Koreas.

When Japan surrendered in August 1945, the 38th parallel was established as the boundary between Soviet and American occupation zones. This parallel divided the Korean peninsula roughly in the middle.

This dividing line was breached on June 25th 1950 when North Korea invaded the south. An armistice was not signed until July 27th 1953. In the first year of the war, the momentum of battle ebbed and flowed dramatically. But the 38th parallel remained a significant reference point throughout.  ---Wikipedia

North Korea is a huge shit sandwich for both the U.S. and China. If we are not going to take out Kim Jong Un then we set him up as a Monarch of Korea similar to the set up in post war Japan. He keeps his money and becomes a figurehead leader of a unified Korea but South Korea controls the military and the government and its new nuclear arsenal. Oh what fun Asian politics would become then.
