We'll see. Could be a military coup that effects a regime change, for all we know. And I'm not just referring to the DPRK in this case.

Carter had the right idea, but was thwarted at every opportunity.

"No, it's not. That is not one of the things on the table," Trump said when asked if he would consider pulling some of the 28,500 troops from South Korea.

Pressed on what he would offer, Trump quipped: "Everything is on the table."

Ok. Let's wait and see.

President Trump is keeping the pressure on until N Korea opens up.

That was quick. Trump must have been quite lectured by the adults in the room.

One thing we know is not to trust Dumpster Fire Donny. We won't know how much he's willing to cough up until after Kim is done flattering Donny.

I wonder if that would also mean that Trump is going to ask Kim to pay for a big beautiful wall at the DMZ? Or will anti-tank munitions, landmines, and razor wire be a sufficient replacement?

The summit will be just another PR stunt for the two dear leaders.

There is no need for a wall at the DMZ.

Have you been to the DMZ?! It's not as though you can just stroll across the border at present....

Dunno. Trump gets his from the National Enquirer, Alex Jones and trash floating around on the net.

Try there?

What, he was supposed to delay announcing this? Why?

Announce what exactly?

By not reducing US troop presence in the DMZ then the Dotard is admitting that his suck up summit with Kim is a failure, a joke, a sham? Benedict Donald said that 'we don't have to worry about NK anymore' so what gives?!!

Maybe we don’t or do you have an insight to what they discussed, so if that means Kim will fly less missiles over Japan, then that is a great thing, if he becomes more manageable, that is a good thing, if he is not saber rattling, that is a good thing. Focus on the bigger picture, if he can accomplish any of these, it’s most definitely a win, the rest will be incremental steps, he’s gotten at least to a point where NO previous US President hasn’t.

trump lives on war for money, if his weapons do not sell, his tap will be cut off. In peace trump will have to go into hiding as people will have more time to think of what he is actually always creating to his benefit, chaos & money for his personal pocket.
