    He's a businessman. What's to say he wouldn't make the right choice when in office? He's not kept abreast of military intelligence in the Middle East because he doesn't have access to it and perhaps doesn't have the time to be. But that's not to say he wouldn't make an astute decision when he has all the facts in front of him.

    And Andries, RE: your signature -- Obama couldn't even hold a candle to how Trump is handling the Korean peninsula. He's done a god job, but the media won't tell you that. Even Obama couldn't make any headway there.

    By default, Trump should win the Nobel Prize already if Obama's is legitimate.

    Oh, Andy.. Andy, Andy, Andy... Your dictator got outwitted by another dictator. And not a very smart dictator either. We all knew they were playing Trump like a fool and now we have proof.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/12/o...ol-left-region

    Trump made a huge concession — the suspension of military exercises with South Korea. That’s on top of the broader concession of the summit meeting itself, security guarantees he gave North Korea and the legitimacy that the summit provides his counterpart, Kim Jong-un.

    Within North Korea, the “very special bond” that Trump claimed to have formed with Kim will be portrayed this way: Kim forced the American president, through his nuclear and missile tests, to accept North Korea as a nuclear equal, to provide security guarantees to North Korea, and to cancel war games with South Korea that the North has protested for decades.

    In exchange for these concessions, Trump seems to have won astonishingly little. In a joint statement, Kim merely “reaffirmed” the same commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula that North Korea has repeatedly made since 1992.
    The NY Times is spot on. And it's not just within North Korea that Kim looks good. Trump just gave him some credibility by negotiating with him. And what did he get in return? A completely meaningless promise that was apparently already made. Wow. What a deal. That's what you get when you don't $#@!ing prepare for such meetings I guess.

    Trump said you could build nice hotels on the beaches of North Korea. I wonder if he had someone in mind to build those hotels.

    And some people think this guy is working hard to improve the life of the average Joe. How $#@!ing dumb can any one person be? I can't believe how so much stupidity can be concentrated in one brain.

    The White House actually produced a short propaganda movie/mock trailer starring Trump and Kim, for the Trump-Kim conference and played it for the press before Trump came out to announce the the results of his meeting with Kim-Jong Un. Apparently he played it for Kim during their meeting, and then decided it was so good that the press should see it too.

    trump is a simple merchant and probably thinks that north korea is a market opportunity there's no other explanation to what he recently did (basically telling the g7 to piss off and bend over before kim a couple of days later).

    Maybe the thought was that Kim would be able to relate to cheesy propaganda?

    Apparently it was played in Korean language for the reporters assembled the first time, so many thought it was a North Korean propaganda video at first. Then they looped it back and played it in English. And then Trump appeared to say "I hope you liked it. I thought it was good. I think he (Kim) loved it."

    Strange new reality we live in.

    What a $#@!ing moron Trump is

    Gobsmacking stuff really. A US president giving legitimacy to a brutal dictator and then praising him as a “good smart man who loves his country”

    This world is a mess right now.

    Agreed was bizarre to watch.

    Im imagining someone naively thinking that sort of grandiose video might play over well or at least seem familiar to north koreans but kim himself? The guy was raised in switzerland, watches western media surely he wasnt won over by it? Or did they just think trump would like it?

    I am trying to wrap my head around the thought process of whatever media team put that together....like i saud earlier...gave me vibes of scientology productions

    North Korea is a regime build on propaganda and manipulation; let's show them a commercial to impress them. Trump and his administration are $#@!ing out of depth. Kim played him again.

    Seriously it's absurd. Look at how he treats his allies.

    What does it say about Trump, that he "lost" to this guy.
