He's out of his mind.

I’m a pretty forgiving to a fault but I’m not sure I could fall in love with someone who turns people who disagree with him into mince with anti-aircraft guns.

I really am tired of listening to the childish speeches that Trump gives. He made a comment in another one;

"I'm the president of the United States, not the president of the entire globe"

Thank GOD for that! I don't think the world wants him, and I am beginning to think most American's don't either!

Jesus Trump, you really make it hard to give you the benefit of the doubt! In love with a despot, not a great look...

How will Kim react when Trump cheats on him with porn stars?

10 ( +12 / -2 )

This DT guy is a real loon. Worst part is we still have at least two more years of his Looney antics. The U.S. should trade him to North Korea or Iran but their citizens would most certainly reject the deal. Any takers out there?

One of the poorest nations on the Planet, a country that is begging for relief of hard punishing sanctions, everyone is starving his reserves are low, he’s executing and relocating potential enemies, but he’s manipulating Trump? ROFL!

Kim doesn't look like he's starving to me - in fact, he's one of the few folks that makes Trump look thin...

Trump gave the little dictator somehing he, his father and grandfather have been wanting for years - legitimacy. Trump went to Korea, Kim didn't come to the US. A visit by a US President, a reductions in sanctions enforcement by China and Russia, feeding Moon to drive a wedge between S Korea and Japan/US. Yes, little Rocket Man has manipulated Trump "bigly"...

Actually, both. But the thing is Trump has been hitting China a lot harder, not to mention intercepting a few vessels here and there that try to be be sneaky, so it is more difficult for China to fully prop up the regime like before, but it seems like liberals around the planet know more deails than Beijing or Washington.

Explain how antagonizing China on trade will get them to support our diplomatic efforts with Kim?

And please, just stop with the "Libs" in every post - the world is not all Lib/Cons - you can certainly live that if you want but its like putting your brain in a box and never opening it up...

Donny loves Kimmie.

That’d be cute except it’s not at all.

This is the guy people like bass4funk, serrano, and others support. A man literally in love with a murderous despot because the latter knows how to control the former.

Sometimes, the left just don't get that Trump loves to troll them as equally as they love doing it to him. Hey, the left have a seemingly strong affection for Iran, so I don't it's a bad thing.

Amen. Trump is the best troll ever, which is what we need in a president. Not some weak-kneed person that writes line letters or fawns over despots.

Dont even get me started on the number of times Obama wrote letters to other leaders. If he had spent more time on the golf course and less on writing letters, he would have been half as good as Trump.

I think in his own strange way, maybe Trump is trying to really scare Kim.

Perfectly fine in this day and age. My only worry is whether their union will be legal in N.Korea.

Too right. Just ask the intelligence agencies, they'll tell you all about Kim.

Actually, both. But the thing is Trump has been hitting China a lot harder, not to mention intercepting a few vessels here and there that try to be be sneaky, so it is more difficult for China to fully prop up the regime like before, but it seems like liberals around the planet know more deails than Beijing or Washington.

Touche. We mustn't rush to judge, unless we're talking about Ford's dubious testimony.

It seems like you guys are doing just that, twisting what YOU want it to mean.

No kidding. It happens every time the liberal MSM reports Trump's words and actions. Damn the MSM for doing its job!

For the last 18 months the left have been trying to defend justify why the Iran deal is a good deal when it isn’t which is the reason why it was scraped.

Emotionless facts. The Iran deal was so bad that the rest of the participants are attempting to salvage if.

How could he ever fall in love with such a deplorable, disgusting, unhinged, and down right evil thing?!

Is Kim Jong Un really that desperate?

China needs the US as much as we need China, we need China on trade, but at the same time, we have the markets, resources a lot of things the Chinese need from us, even if the leaders call each other out, behind the scenes the two who work things on certain issues, China comes from a position of strength and up until now, No President stood up to China the way this one has and if the Democrats like Schumer love it, you know angels exist. If China is agitated so what, the US is getting agitated as well.

We need China to an extent to help us with NK it makes things a bit easier, but make No mistake and as it stands and even if China gets fickle in the end it doesn’t matter and imposing tougher sanctions on the North isn’t something China will necessarily get involved in, wouldn’t be a good idea.

I'm afraid your reasoning is flawed for two reasons. 1) You discount the power of nationalism in China - its the foundation of the Communist Party and it manipulates it to keep the masses from revolting and throwing them out of power. China can't "lose" - up the economic pressure and the govt will play the nationalism card - remember a few year ago when Japanese Dept Stores were being set on fire in China? 2) China can turn the dial on support to nKorea as it suits their interests - China gets what it wants from the US, and it tells nKorea to get in line. The US antagonizes China and things get more difficult.

I’m sorry, what is the name of our President or his supporters?

The ones that are US citizens I call "Americans" - the bulk of the ones overseas I call "Russians"...

Best to take all in "context" realistically and pragmatically.

Everyone knows that as with Obama and many other politicians, Trump speaks in parables as well as directly in descriptive words in language from the very elite to the extremely common and lowly as he he finds fit to suite the situation and circumstance, not necessarily politically or socially amicable but avoiding what is considered a "swear" word. But he does try to get the "intent" and the "idea" across as best as he can with words that most can and do understand. Not to justify all that he says, but to describe what he is saying, this is another case where he illustrates the "closeness" of the relationship that he thinks he has established with Kim in light of what the entire world perceive as "antagonistic" and "shallow".

As a leader, one must be able to turn the negative into positive not just for himself but for the country, the society he represents. It is obvious here that he is trying to keep things positive.

Any relationship between Trump and Kim at this point and into the future must be kept positive for any meaningful resulting action from either side. To have bilateral communication, or dialog, is critical in avoiding actions that are detrimental to either parties involved.

Trump has not commented on current actions by Kim as being a negative or a cause for some drastic action other than to maintain the current embargo which is still unenforced due to Chin and Russia along with many other nations disregarding the action. The point is, it appears he has information that he does not have to take any more publicly exposed drastic action which may become an unnecessary hurdle in the future. He find a need to keep Kim coming to him for a meaningful dialog as if "lovers" with a common interest.

Of course they're in love; they're both tyrants, tin-pot dictators, and have hair issues....

The way Kim manipulates Trump, he obviously has about twice Trump's IQ....

I'm glad there have been no more missile or nuc tests, but my take that is due to China, not Trump - and Trump is waging economic warfare with China, so one wonders how long this moratorium will last.

Trump (Larry), Kim (Curly) and Putin (Moe) - the 21st Century Three Stooges...with nuclear weapons....

God help us...

So true. It's not like the president is glued to the tv all day. He's too. Yay keepin it real on Twitter.

It's fine. Everything's fine. This is completely normal.

He is our Winston Churchill with a New York accent.

A racist alcoholic war monger who hated the working classes and sent in the Black and Tans to murder and destroy Irish people and property?

Yeah, I can see the similarity now that you mention it.

Churchill and mass murderer Stalin initially mistrusted each other until they had a mad old drinking session in Moscow '42.

Great. More praise and concessions from Trump.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Obama gives Iran a clear-cut path to a nuclear bomb, and the democrats celebrate.

This is what I'm saying. The deal Obama negotiated with Iran gave Iran blueprints to nukes. It's not as if that deal froze Iran's ability to continue developing the technology that leads to bombs.

Trump reels in current owner of nuclear bomb, and the democrats are dejected.

Completely. Just ask the intelligence agencies how much the DPRK has stopped. The inrelligence agencies completely support the above statement in no way, shape, or form.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

It is quite sad to read that some Leftists actually miss the good old days when Kim was test firing nuclear rockets unabated. They should try talking to some folks who do live in either the ROK or Japan sometime to get their take on what it was like not knowing if/when a city they were living in would be vaporized by a WMD from missile launched from the NPRK

Truer words have seldom been spoken. Once Trump got involved, all of the DPRKs missiles and missile technology just disappeared. Poof. No more missile threat.

Selectively hating on everything he does, I guess froma liberal point of view

Exactly. The liberal MSM doesn't report on all the other stuff Trump doesn't do. It's ridiculous how it only reports onnhis words and actions.

Them not the US, Israel or The Saudis

So true. Why aren't the non-participant Israelis and Saudis not trying to salvage a deal they weren't party to?!

Since 2011, Kim has fired more than 85 missiles and four nuclear weapons tests, which is more than what his father, Kim Jong Il, and grandfather, Kim Il Sung, launched over a period of 27 years.

No, my friend, but it's funny to watch you guys try and spin what Trump says into what you WANT it to mean.

It seems like you guys are doing just that, twisting what YOU want it to mean.

It's as funny as watching Graham, Trump, and others go 180 on investigating Kavanaugh further... something I know really sticks in your craw.

Really? When Kavanaugh is sitting on the bench, please hit me up again how this is all funny.

You guys, on the other hand, ALWAYS fail to defend the indefensible with any amount of credibility, or do you believe that Kim is a great guy, too?

For the last 18 months the left have been trying to defend justify why the Iran deal is a good deal when it isn’t which is the reason why it was scraped.

You either agree or disagree with your president. Which is it?

Depends on what the issue is.
