North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying it has no interest in giving Trump further meetings to brag about unless it gets something substantial in return.

Dont worry Kim, Trump can find any number of reasons to brag, just like you! Oh and just like you those "brags" more than likely are BS anyway!

The 'most transparent' president has been seen through by Kim, too.

I wonder if Kim and his regime are having second thoughts about endorsing Trump during the election, or are happy knowing he's been so easy to manipulate.

Blows my mind that we've reached a stage in global affairs where NORTH KOREA seemingly rejects a visit from the president of the United States. Thanks, Trump!

My how American prestige has fallen when meeting with a tin-pot dictator is considered something to brag about.

Yes and now that Kim knows he won’t get sanction relief until he de-Nukes.

Easy to manipulate?? How? Kim wants sanction relief, not Trump. Lol

No big deal. Kim, give up your nukes and we’ll talk, it’s not that hard to do. Temper tantrums and threats won’t work.

The only reason they can do that is because he legitimized the Kims by meeting directly with Un. And he literally got nothing out of it. Pure and utter incompetence. He made NK stronger... for a photo op.

We already know that. The question is what Trump will give them and how much he will praise Un.

Come on! No political system guarantees a perfect or even "good" leader. All systems have their flaws and I have an idea a democrate president might have made things even worse!? But thats conjecture. Who knows?

Bottomline is, without some kind of intervention (military) it was always going to be very hard to deal with a leader like Kim who only has one trump (no pun intended LOL) card. He won't give up his nuclear weapons, that's all he has!

Sure Trump makes one mistake after another, but this NK issue is one messy one and honestly, .... unless there is some kind of war ... it requires some kind of internal uprising. This is uncharted waters!

The anti-Trumpers here are funny. They claim that postponing/canceling the military exercises is "capitulation and appeasement," and then when the North Koreans claim about getting nothing substantial, it's Trump's fault.

The question is what Trump will give them 

He won't give them anything unless they start denuking. Should be quite apparent now, even to anti-Trumpers. Been a year and a half since Trump's first meeting with Kim, so far the North Koreans have done nothing but complain about not getting anything substantial. Trump's canceled a couple of military exercises. No worries, the U.S. military will be fully able to do what they have to do if it comes to war, plus it saves us a bunch of money.

Sure Trump makes one mistake after another

What, meeting with Kim three times? Yeah, never should have done that, right?

Watch Donny bend over backwards to get a summit with Lil Kim.

The only people Donny respects and looks up to are despotic dictators and he will do anything , and I mean anything, to get into their good books.

Time to ignore NK again for a few years, just keep the sanctions up.

And get those military exercises going again ASAP.

Just watch! Trump'll get down on his hands and knees to get another photo op with the little dictator. Disgraceful.

Just like Zelenskiy, Junior Kim loves Rump's "a$$", too, but he's not been getting any quid for his quo from the old windbag and so now he's beginning to realize that everywhere Trump goes there's trouble.

Following a U.S. decision over the weekend to call off joint military exercises with South Korea to create space for diplomacy with the North, Trump in a tweet urged Kim Jong Un to “act quickly, get the deal done”

Earth to Kim: Don't screw this up. Get with the program while you still can.

and hinted at another summit between them, saying “See you soon!”

Just watch! Trump'll get down on his hands and knees to get another photo op with the little dictator. Disgraceful

There's a difference between encouraging someone and begging someone.

Just like Zelenskiy, Junior Kim loves Rump's "a$", too, but he's not been getting any quid for his quo from the old windbag 

So does this mean those who talk about Trump's "capitulation and appeasement" are wrong?

As Long As Kim huge his nukes, nothing.

and how much he will praise Un.

If that moves Kim a bit in the direction to do the right thing, you get more with honey than with vinegar.

Un is taking Trump for a ride. Trump doesn't have the chops to operate at this level.

That's good. Not many laughs to be had from reading the garbage that Trump cultists parrot, no matter how many LoLs they add to their own "witticisms." Or whatever they're supposed to be.

Awwwww, po widdle Donnie, getting dissed by his fwiend Lil Kim.

He's been acting so uncouth and disrespectful even his tinpot dictator 'friends' are openly dissing him now.

'Make America Great Again' - yes, make it so by impeaching and removing this butt-kisser traitor from office NOW!!!
