Great. More I feel Donny appeasing and capitulating to Kim for zero in return.

How are those sanctions working? You know, what Trumpophiles disparaged other presidents foecdoing but now praise Donny for doing.

Will that stop the barrage of missiles that NK has been firing? I believe that there have been more missiles fired per day of presidency, than any other American president. All of them.

They are a million miles apart on a deal.

Trump is OK with NK missiles fired toward Japan. As long as NK doesn't test ICBMs capable of reaching US mainland, he's fine with NK testing missiles capable of nuking Tokyo.

Trump's de facto blessing of North Korea's missile tests sends ominous message to Japan

U.S. President Donald Trump may not mind North Korea’s repeated tests of short-range missiles, including some believed capable of striking Japan, but his not-so-begrudging acceptance of the North’s actions is sending an unmistakable message to Washington’s Asian allies: America really does come first.

Trump didn't elaborate 

in part because of his inability to speak coherently on any subject without a prepared script read from a teleprompter, and the reality his limited vocabulary prevents him from elaborating beyond a 10 year old's level.

Any time Trump appears before the media it's just another infomercial for himself and his brand name paid for by US taxpayers.

In meeting with Kim, Trump's also providing a valuable propaganda tool for the North Korea regime.

Maybe talking is better than warring?

Just a thought...

Anything is better than conflict.

All of them? Even all the Presidents where a thing called a missile didn’t even exist? Wow!

Um, yeah, of course. Not that I’d actually place any relevance on them. But yes, the missiles per day under them would definitely be less than the missiles per day for trump.

Nobody is disagreeing. We are disagreeing that Donny is somehow making progress and is a great negotiator when all he's doing is giving Kim photo ops.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Of course talking is better than war. That’s why you have your diplomats talk.

You don’t give dictatorship photo ops. Well you do if you’re incompetent I guess.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Oh boy, the obsession with the Nobel Peace Prize is going to make America sign a really bad deal and make this region unsafe.

In case someone wants to deny it, Donny was harping on it during his meeting with the Pakistan PM.

"Unspecified New Method"... lets see, the USA will give N. Korea massive agricultural and monetary support in exchange for a complete stop in the development of Nukes. Meanwhile N. Korea will hide away their nukes and tout them at a later date in order to get more assistance.

All of them? Even all the Presidents where a thing called a missile didn’t even exist? Wow!

Yeah, that's clearly what was meant. Nice substantive reply defending Donny with the critical discourse skills of a seven year old.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

In recent days, however, North Korea has praised Trump for saying Washington may pursue an unspecified "new method" in nuclear negotiations as well as for his decision to fire his hawkish former National Security Adviser John Bolton.

North Korea also has hinted that some sort of diplomacy could soon resume, but it says it will not consider abandoning its nuclear weapons unless external threats are removed. The North says annual U.S.-South Korean military drills and the huge presence of American troops in the region are proof of U.S. hostility toward Pyongyang.

Geez, Kim sure has Donnie's number - he's playing him like a fiddle. The Great Orange Demented Idiot just keeps being led around by Kim like some little puppy.

They'll meet - on Kim's turf - and get lots of pics that Kim can show his countrymen that he's not a fat little kid, but a world leader meeting the US President.

And at the end, Trump will cave and say we'll cancel or reduce our exercises, offer food or money, while Kim gives nothing.

All by the author of "The Art of Appeasement".....

Then why make it clear “all” of them to dishonestly try to increase the size of the group?

-7 ( +0 / -7 )

About 75% of your “all” group never even saw a missile. Liberals just can’t math.

Trump is set to speak before the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, two years after he used that podium to deride Kim as "Little Rocket Man" and to threaten to destroy North Korea.

And after that Kim was anxious for meetings.

Great. More I feel Donny appeasing and capitulating to Kim for zero in return.

What appeasing and capitulating? All the sanctions are still on and squeezing NK.

They are a million miles apart on a deal.

At least they have been meeting and talking, plus inter-Korean have been improving over the past couple of years. More than Obama accomplished.

Of course talking is better than war. That’s why you have your diplomats talk.

Oh, but it's not OK for the leaders of the countries to meet and talk. I get it.

Another self-pity party for the worst US president in modern era.

Without saying "Obama" or "Hillary", can any trump supporter name something, anything that trump has actually accomplished that has started, advanced or finished something related to peace?

Now, to be fair, if someone asked me for a list of Obama's accomplishments, that'd be tough too... I mean, off the top of my head, all I could come up with would maybe be:

The ACA

Prevented a depression and ended the recession caused by Dubya

Ended the war in Iraq (caused by Dubya)

Rescued the auto industry (decimated by Dubya)

Veteran homeless rate dropped in half on his watch.

Signed Dodd-Frank

Landmark nuclear deal with Iran, which the present POTUS torched so he could have his war

Nominated the first Hispanic SC justice.

Signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

Signed Hate Crimes Prevention act.

Increased Department of Veteran Affairs funding

Boosted fuel efficiency standards for cars

Improved school nutrition with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act

Back on topic please.

About 75% of your “all” group never even saw a missile. Liberals just can’t math.

Need a safe space? Trumpophiles complaining about anyone being inadvertently inaccurate is comedic gold given they constantly believe Donny and push blatant falsehoods.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Do any of Donny's base find it strange that he would gladly disclose classified information to foreign leaders, both allies and adversaries; and yet, he won't release his tax returns? Sort of put his priorities into perspective.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

What does Trump really hope to achieve after all previous failures and that Trump already knew Kim has used the meetings to buy time for NK nuclear program and also his political status?

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Trump will run on a NK deal in 2020. Again.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Then why make it clear “all” of them to dishonestly try to increase the size of the group?

Heh, Trumpets are reduced to trying to get us to reduce the number of people against which we compare his incompetence. Ok, if it makes you feel better, I concede that the degree of Trump's incompetence is not as big as comparing him to every president ever would indicate. He's only more incompetent than all of the leaders who have come into power since the NK regime came into effect.

True love never dies. This could be made into a big Disney movie with sequels to follow.

Has he forgotton "Otto Warmbeer"? well good luck to your trip in Pyongyang! A trump tower cornerstone must laid over there!

I don't recall the US asking NK or any other nation before developing and using missiles.

Oh, that's right the US is peace loving - Vietnam, Iraq, ......

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Great! Trump wants to further bend over for his boyfriend Kim and in turn further legitimize the man's reign, getting nothing in return once again for the US.

"...or it couldn't...who knows, we'll have to wait and see. I've heard some people say it will. Personally, I don't know. Que sera, sera. Manyana. They say anything is possible...so who knows?

re: @strangerland:

"Will that stop the barrage of missiles that NK has been firing?"

No worries, POTUS has all the many "well written beautiful letters". Nothing to worry about as along as he keeps getting these letters.

We don't ask, we tell. Haven't you realized that yet? Unfortunately, might makes rightnand we are the rightiest.

It must burn people from our puppet states such as Australia, but it's a fact of life.

As long as there’s willingness to continue the dialogs, that’s progress in itself.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

As long as there’s willingness to continue the dialogs, that’s progress in itself.

Dialogue that goes nowhere and provides Kim with photo ops is more harmful than some moly relying on sanctions.

Remember when you ripped Obama for being willing to speak with our adversaries? I do. I also remember when you did a screeching 180 and started slobbering all over Donny for engaging our adversaries in unconstructibe ways.

What's it like having no integrity?
