Besides the benefits Donny has given Kim, Donny has been they most ineffective president to interact with NoKo.

re: article: as Pyongyang ramps up pressure on Washington over stalled nuclear talks.

Not much in pressure on Washington than on themselves. NK knows any "hostile" action brought against the US would bring the end of NK as it exist today. It's allies wouldn't be in any position do anything aside condone military action for their own agendas. Given this, NK has backed itself into a deep corner giving the US more ammunition to proceed with military action. 1. years and years of sanctions have failed, 2. providing them free resources have failed 3. direct dialogue has failed 4. last and only option a military strike or internal coup of the current regime. That is where we are today. No one wants war, but there are times when war is necessary and unfortunately it is quickly getting to that point.

Only NK can untangle its own mess. For POTUS he is clearly showing signs of weakness against war in the face of other countries. Other countries are known for military strikes, talks later. Time for the US to step it up and start acting like a REAL Super Power and set things right once and for all. The political correctness has no business in these kinds of matters. One has too look at the past administration failures. RE: Article: "At the recent NATO summit, Trump boasted about Washington's "most powerful military", adding: "Hopefully, we don't have to use it, but if we do, we'll use it. If we have to, we'll do it."

Time is running out, dialogue is running short, as this story winds down to the wire. tick tock.. tick tock..the clock pendulum is swinging. The US will fight if it needs too but right now it is up entirely to NK. China nor Russia can save it now. On the flip side, though China best not make a move of military strike against Taiwan or Hong Kong. IT would be a big mistake to use any NK action as a means to take action towards Taiwan or HK.

No president has ever been as disastrous with North Korea as Trump. He has not only advanced the US position an inch, he has given ground in sanctions, halted war games at Kims request, and legitimized Kim's dynasty, ensuring they will be in power for decades.

It's hard to think Trump could have made this worse had he tried. I mean, this was just incompetence. Imagine if he also had intent, scary.

He's an anti-matter King Midas. Everything he touches with his tiny greedy hands turns to toxic crap.

I'm hardly a conspiracy theorist, but isn't it a little too coincidental that Kim's timeline on escalating the situation on the peninsula is exactly the same as the start of the Senate impeachment trial?

Maybe Donnie and his boyfriend have been exchanging more love letters - and hatching a plan to "wag the dog" and distract from Bolton or McGahn potentially testifying...

I wouldn't put anything past this crooked huckster...

This 'very important test' must be something to do with world peace.

Otherwise the DPRK are just lying, again.

My heart goes out to President Trump, for I too know the feeling of being jilted. A similar thing happened to me. We exchanged romantic letters and she said that she loved me. What a fool I was, for later, I discovered that she had lied to me just to advance her nuclear weapons program.

For those keeping score:

Little Rocket Man -- 9

Dotard with Fire -- 0

But I think Donnie's score may be -3, given his three failed meetings...

Tiny Kim, you wont get away with this. Trump is going to come down on you like ton of bricks if you keep up this testing. And PM Abe is right beside Trump.

More like a ton of sweaty flab.

Kim couldn’t care less what Abe thinks, cobber. He’s on Trump’s leash.

While some may this POTUS approach as disastrous, I see it quite differently. It's an approach that hadn't been done as many pointed out at other previous administrations, why not approach direct dialogue. Of course it was doomed to fail but behind is the approach was tried. That in itself takes out sanctions, humanitarian aide, peace talks, and now only leaves the last resort: military approach. All of the above have failed regardless of who was POTUS or what party was the majority. Failure is failure and now the only think left on the table is military strike as all resolutions have failed. This is they way of politics. Perhaps this was the plan of the Think Tank all along and not really up to President Trump. Either way the NK's have had their chances an now dug themselves into corner that only they can get out of. Perhaps this was why POTUS tweeted Kim aka Rocket Man to get a package and sign a deal because the plans are done, the training is there and the new toys are ready to be tested.

Time after time, Trump supports and defends our enemies, but can’t get along with our friends. Back in the day, we had a name for that kind of person.
