Hell, "a cockroach" would have still been a better choice as an answer to that particular question than "President Trump"

I donít know what Trump is up to. If heís just got dictator envy and misses his #1 or if Putin gave him orders or what. Whatever it is, I believe heís got some ulterior motive that I donít trust.

However, with that being said, I think weíre as far away from war (or worse, nuclear war) with NK as we have been for decades. I guess thatís good.

I was hoping they kidnap him and ransom him to release all sanctions but we says "Fuck you, you can keep him as long as you want."

Neville Chamberlain would be proud.

We were never going to go to war with North Korea. Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of China's interests on the Korean peninsula understands that. The big danger (and it persists) was the North Korea would foster proliferation by providing nuclear weaponry to other countries and/or non-state actors.

My Wife about the same thing. What if Trump gets kidnapped by North Korea? I told her the street parties and the celebrations would be so loud, I doubt anyone would care. And good luck getting someone to pay a ransom for him. I guess the Trump kids would have to pool their resources together.

Maybe NK will give him the Otto Wambier treatment. Then again, that might be an improvement.

He is looking for a Nobel Peace Prize. Seriously. He is looking for a legacy. Something that Obama could never do.

He thinks if he brokers a deal w/NK he would be looked at differently. He would be looked at as strong peace maker.

Personally, I think Little Hands Donny is playing out of his element. I think Putin and Kim play him like a fiddle. They give him all the rope he needs to hang himself.

Not at all surprised at the Fox turnaround. If Obama had set foot in noko it would have been coo war.


part of me is impressed that trump did it. It’s now his legacy.

Wait, Fox News is hypocritical with their treatment of Trump vs. Obama? When did this start?

Heíll use this during his re-election campaign, touting peace between N. Korea and the US. Which is easy when youíre giving dictators everything they want with nothing in return.
Didnít the Clinton administration have some kind of deal with Kim Jong Il that mandated they NOT develop nuclear weapons and they developed them anyways? Same thing is happening with Trump but worse.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Trump setting foot in North Korea is the modern-day equivalent of Nixon going to China. It may not do a whole heck of a lot in terms of politics between the two nations, but as far as legacy goes, it's something to point to.

I do like that Trump understands what the press does not: You keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. Hence, all the North Korea and Russia friendliness. Of course, Trump can't verbalize that - better to just let them think he's as stupid as the rest of the world believes him to be. It's pretty shrewd.

Keep your friends close, your enemies closer and your bagman (Putin) closest.

I think itís less shrewd and more ďonly dictators will compliment TrumpĒ. Remember that he values those who praise him above all else.

Yeah and since he can't get any legitimate leaders to praise him, he'll take what he can get.
