Hope for the best, expect the worst.

Bolton is simply itching for a war. Pompeo is incompetent. Trump lacks the acumen to be president. This is a recipe for disaster.

Kim Jong-un has done what his father and grandfather couldn't do; find a leader of the US willing to trade unlimited access to the American purse for compliments.

Bolton is simply itching for a war. Pompeo is incompetent.

What a stupid thing to say, as if he or any person wants and enjoys the suffering of innocent civilians and wants to see bloodshed. If you make that kind of a ridiculous comment then you can also make the argument that liberals would be more content to live with a threatening NK. The left should be happy, especially in Washington State and California. Pelosi and the Dems should be ecstatic that Trump wants to prevent them from being vaporized.

Trump lacks the acumen to be president. This is a recipe for disaster.

I guess not, the other 3 previous Presidents couldn’t pull that off, so much for that analogy.

What? Liberal humor?

Kim Jong Un didn't risk traveling on his own jet which also flew carrying his security people instead he arrived on an Air China jet. Singapore is picking up the tab for the summit in a gesture to aid world peace.

Hopefully Trump and Kim will achieve something other than more animosity. They both deserve credit if they pull a peace agreement off.

President Moon of South Korea has also been an important cog leading up to the summit.

Well, to be honest, there was never a complete dotard in the White House when his father or grandfather were alive.

They both deserve credit if they pull a peace agreement off.

I'd buy them new hairpieces myself if they strike a deal. Hell, I'll even introduce them to Rizap.

"Hope for the best, expect the worst"

Or, peace through strength.

Crazy: "Pompeo is incompetent"

Hahahahahahahaha, lol, watch this, Crazy, you might learn something:

Kim Jong Un said he will leave Singapore five hours after the start of the summit meeting. Trump just touched down. There will be a photo of Trump and Kim in front of their flags. That will be a first, American president photo in front of a North Korea flag.

This is all a huge mistake. I can’t possibly foresee any long term benefit from playing nice with a charter member of the Axis of Evil. Iran played the US for fools and North Korea is going to expect Trump to give him a similar deal. If Obama had done this I would not be any more or less contemptuous of him than I am of this move by Trump. Trump will either give up the store or get back on Air Force 1 empty handed and embarrassed for getting suckered into Kim’s photo op.

-8 ( +3 / -11 )

It's really quite surreal. Kim has ordered the murders of countless people and Trump is a despicable human being. Yet here they are, about to have an historical summit. It makes me wonder if being decent gets anything achieved anymore.

Bolton is simply itching for a war.

What's your evidence for that? Just another comment from another liberal, spewing hate for someone whose opinions differ from his/her own.

Pompeo is incompetent.

Anyone, even an eight-year-old, can say someone is incompetent. But WHY is he incompetent?

Give examples. Give evidence. Show us examples of something he has done, or has failed to do, that make him incompetent.

Trump lacks the acumen to be president.

Not sure which part of his presidency you object to -- the peace or the prosperity.

Oh, it's because he defeated your darling-girl Hillary in the election. That must be it.

Seriously ... again, anyone, even a child, can stick their tongue out and say something like "he lacks this and that." But where are the examples? Where is the evidence?

Or are liberals somehow excused from having to give evidence for their childish, schoolyard-bully rhetoric?

This is a recipe for disaster.

Trump could single-handedly cure cancer, and folks like you would still probably bash him.

Kim Jong-un has done what his father and grandfather couldn't do; find a leader of the US willing to trade unlimited access to the American purse for compliments.

Again, evidence? Anyone with enough ideologically-fueled animosity in their heart can make a statement like that, especially with regard to a summit meeting that hasn't even started yet.

You'll be proven wrong on that one, badly wrong. But I doubt you'll admit it. You liberals never do.

"Trump is a despicable human being"

His wife, kids, most Americans and the vast majority of his former employees would beg to differ.

Trump is a despicable human being

He's had his despicable moments in life, sure, as have we all. But he's done a lot of good in his life too -- opened career doors for a lot of people (including women in what was an overwhelmingly male-dominated NY real estate market) and donated & raised millions for charities, among other things.

Pretty judgmental of you to make a sweeping "he's despicable" condemnation.

Let's face it -- if he hadn't defeated your darling-girl Hillary in the election, you wouldn't be calling him despicable. You wouldn't be calling him anything. You wouldn't even be giving him a second thought.

But because thin-skinned immature liberals still haven't gotten over Hillary's loss (even she herself admits she hasn't yet!), many of you have instead chosen to childishly lash out at him every single day for the last year and a half.

Well, it's time to put on your big boy/big girl pants and grow up. He's the president. You don't have to agree with him, but be mature about it. Don't make sweeping judgments about a man who you've never met.

Most of us didn't do this with Obama. We disagreed with him plenty, but with a few regrettable exceptions, most of us conservatives never piled on the invective and vitriol against him. And most of all, when he was elected and then re-elected, we got over it very quickly.

You liberals can do it too, if you only put your minds to it. And do a little growing up! Disagree with him if you must and show, through logic and reason, why his policies aren't good.

But enough with the crybabying and the immature language already.

Most Americans were not willing to vote for him. I wonder why Melania is so reluctant to hold his hands.

68 million Americans voted for him and he won the electorate vote. He is the President of the U.S.A.

Yeah, including nutty California ( Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters ) and the illegals, Hillary actually got more popular votes. Which doesn't change the fact that Trump is going to be re-elected in a landslide in 2020.

History repeats itself over and over again and no one seems to notice!

A tyrannical dictator of a struggling country who has openly called for war as a means to an end is pulling a charm offensive with his neighbours and potential enemies under a banner of peace and prosperity. Anyone see the similarities here?

The only one laughing is Kim Jong Un! He's got Trump and Moon eating out of his hand and neither of them can see the danger that is creeping up on them. I wont be surprised if Trump or Kim Jong Un, submit a statement that says we have achieved Peace! All that will be missing is a little piece of paper being help aloft in front of a plane! Oh wait, there are two of those at the airport! Pick one any one!

This will not end well!

There is no peaceful solution to the North Korean nuclear issue that doesn't involve sitting down with Kim Jon Un and negotiating with him. Kudos to Trump for taking the risk.

Yeah, the coastal Americans, they might not, but the heartland of America or fly over America would and although his numbers are slowly rising, more consistent is a good sign that more and more people that first didn't like him are getting used to him and are more accepting, so that's a very good thing which helps the President and his approval standing overall.

Id feel better if Trump didn't have a history of squabbling with world leaders, but I wish everyone luck.

That doesn’t change the fact that a majority of Americans were not willing to vote for Hillary either. Go ahead, check the numbers. Even her husband - elected twice - never got a majority of the vote.

Well sometimes in life there are no peaceful solutions.

Oh yes, I forgot that you consider these lesser Americans that deserve less of a vote than other Americans since you don't agree with their political viewpoint.

And yet claim you support democracy.

Trump arrived on Air Force One and Kim on Air Un.

@Strangerland that’s true. Many people i know who voted for Trump regretted it.
