That picture....what a classic, need on my wall another in my car and definatly one in the toilet. How bizarre to have two idiots at the same time together. And they now after holding hands don't want to talk? No happy ending here.

Very well done. For the sake of his own ego, Trump has in his 4 year term totally destroyed US policy towards North Korea in effect since 1951, through muliple Presidents and administrations, and granted Kim global recognition for absolutely nothing in return. But of course what else should we have expected from a President who won't/can't read his Daily Briefs and doesn't belive his own Intelligence Agencies.

RE: neither did any of the past administrations or Presidents. Let's face it, the only way to end this was to have followed General McArthur and General Patton's plans to finish them off once and for all. The only think President Trump did was what hadn't been done before because of advisors telling them not too. What did we lose absolutely nothing and vice versa. I agree this was a behind the scenes to buy them more time nothing less.

yes NK has a lot of that 16000 artillery guns pointed at Seoul, could lay waste to it within 15 minutes of constant fire. Not even America could take out that many guns before the damage would be catastrophic

No previous US President legitimized the Kim administration by meeting with a DPRK leader. This was one of the goals openly stated by the Kim regime for generations, and every US adnminstration up till now has refused.

that large Korean individual already had his “ 15 minutes of fame “ on the global stage, and even if North Korea is the no 1 s**hle country in the world, they were able to be “ recognized “ ... why would they wanna have talks with the US again ... Trump / Biden, your move ... are we gonna have to deal with these people for the next years, decades, or are you gonna “ get the job done “ ...

These are NOT meeting, Kim is an Extortionist, and Mr Trump know how to play him well.

Kim has finally realised that Trump is even worse than he is. He got a couple of trips outside NK including a nice shopping spree while in Singapore and Trump got some photo ops with one of his dictator heroes and got to step in and out of NK without being shot by anything but camera's.

No point in looking for another meeting with Trump who will no longer be president come Jan 20 2021. Better to get his nasty comments ready for Biden instead.

Kim burned all those 'love letters'. And he scratched up that Elton John 'Rocket Man' CD that Trump gave him too. No more 'lovey-dovey'.

Oh really? You mean the policy of constantly sending aid, including nuclear aid to NK for their eternal bluffs? You do remember that North Koreas nuclear plants were supplied the Clinton, or did you forget that? How did that genius policy work out?

Trump, with his rethorical game, managed to shut down North Koreas nuclear threats. Which would not have been possible without Clintons brilliant policy in the first place.

Blind Trump hatred truly makes some people blind.

Dialogue is important, but Trump did nothing except give Kim some delicious photo ops.

The nuclear threat never went away.

Blind Trump worship can distort reality for some folks.

He did. The thing was, cameras were not allowed In the meeting, that ticked off the msm for those 3 hours"

The nuclear threat never went away.

No one intend it would, Trump offered a different and modernized NK with a vibrant and functioning economy and developed nation to bring it up to 21st century standards, he refused, his loss. He’ll continue to see his country impoverished, that’s on him, he chose to keep his Nukes.

No, it was something he wanted and tried to do something No other President had done, it didn’t work. I feel bad for the people of NK but Kim wants to keep them isolated, that’s on him.

Trump, Bolton and Mattis will never accept anything else but a denuclearized NK. No concessions, no deal until the dismantling begins and every site is verified and their nuclear reactors are buried. Then after that happens they will go the next steps to try to first normalize and establish diplomatic relationship.

If NK will allow verification of its sites, unconditionally disarm, then we can see further as to what assurances we can give Kim, if not, he walks and that’s it as he should. Trump is not the other Presidents and won’t deal with the BS promises which his father and grandfather spun.

Turns out Trump fell for the BS promises that Kim's father and grandfather spun.

Turns out Trump was exactly the failure that the Trumpets tried to claim other presidents were.

unrelenting pressure from Trump and pushing North Korea and hitting them with the heaviest of sanctions is the prime reason for bringing them to their knees that is why they have capitulated on everything the Trump administration demanded so far.

As we've seen since, Trump ONLY capitulated to NK, and got absolutely nothing in return.
