Gee, I'm 'shocked' at this development.

Kim Jong was sooo trustworthy, I mean, Trump said he was such a nice feller, right?

8 ( +9 / -1 )

Kim really knows how to play the Cheato-head well, doesn’t he? Big businessman, ha! Doesn’t even realize he’s been played the fool by a third-world dictator.

Trump got trumped. Look for him to come up with a new battery of schoolboy-level taunts.

Or else Trump will get his pet poodle Miller to have Hannity and his fellow Trump worshippers at Fox 'news' and other Rupert Murdoch outlets launch new attacks on the US intelligence agencies.

Of course they're making more fuel. Clearly, the deal Kim struck with Xi is he'd refrain from further nuclear and missile testing but not scrap either program, and it's only Kim's deals with Xi that matter. Ain't nothing the US, under any administration, can do 'bout that short of invasion.

...and Trump's a naif to think otherwise.

Wow the same US intelligence that concluded the Russian dictatorship conspired in a massive campaign to help elect Donald Trump?

Trump and Kim's great chemistry is apparent. The Orange moron gave everything away as the Norks are still full steam ahead with their nuclear program.

This was bound to happen, so much for the election publicity stunt. The Republican party is insane.

Trump's supposed to meet with Putin in the near future. With Putin knowing Trump's vulnerabilities, and after having seen Kim use him, what all will Putin try to get from the don.

Buy back Alaska at a discount? Sell off US rights to the Arctic?

Or does Putin just want the US out of Europe.

As long as Trump can sell his brand rights, he could care a toss about the US.

Truce! (All US politics aside for one post's worth.)

They blew up a few shacks and tunnel mouths, but would not allow international inspectors inside. DPRK's actions speak louder than any elaborate words they might choose to proclaim.

Par for the course, really, and totally in character.  Did anyone really expect anything else?

The Dumbo Fake President. He thinks if he’s on camera (and the cameras are filming) then It’s A Huuuuuge Success!

Another empty Trump comment

"there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea."

they need to be prepared for defense and offense if attacked

Well, this was quick !

I guess Xi Jinping is a better friend than Trump !

Don't worry. Trump is, like, a really smart person. High IQ, big brain, and tells it like it is (aimed at the soft spot of your average 13-year-old).

Sounds like Trump is either lying or being incompetent again regarding the status of NK's nuclear future. Or maybe both. Or maybe it's just me. After all, I'm just a lib, and Trump plays chess at a meta-level at which no other human would dare join him. If I think about it, this prez really blows my mind, man!

But also, yes, I know, what about the left, libs, Hillary, disaster of Obama years, Benghazi, war on Christmas, Dems losing reps and wandering in the wilderness with "deers", etc. These are issues with which I as a radical leftist must wrestle.

Trump was playing poker. He had the intelligence briefings the whole time.

Showing your hand too soon leads to total failure. Acting the fool is part of intelligence gathering too.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

"There is absolutely unequivocal evidence that they are trying to deceive the U.S.," NBC quoted one official as saying.

Trump said last week North Korea was blowing up four of its big test sites and that a process of "total denuclearization ... has already started," but officials said there had been no such evidence since the summit.

Once again Trump declares one thing and all of the evidence coming up will show the opposite.

Trump will meet Putin to get his orders for further USA destruction. After all Trump does not want to dissapoint his Russian master.

The American experts and other international people who know is yes and Chairman Kim has no real intentions of denuclearization which undermines Trump's so call summit success so the Trump supporters call those expert opinions which includes the CIA, as rumors from the so called Deep State.

seems Trumps game of 4D chess some people keep stating doesnt work as well in a 3D world .

Trump should ask Un if he’s doing it, and if Un says NO, he should believe him.

Trump has to give concessions only to find they are giving him the finger?

Is this the same kind of US intelligence that claimed ' Sadam has WMD,s and is working on an Nbomb to attack us ' followed by Gaddafi / Libya has WMD ,s and is a danger to us ...and......

Where does the intelligence come from?....oh, thats classified of course, meaning anyone can claim anything without providing any proof. ...unidentified officials ..hmm...referring to activity in ' recent months' which could perfectly well mean that was before the summit and not after.....this might just be a a part of US domestic politics game manouvering before the upcoming elections to take away Donny,s bragging rights about his NK summit success...Im no Trump lover but Im pretty sceptical about intelligence reports by unidentified officials without concrete proof. Not like it didnt happen before.

Wow! Lots a info there. Almost too much. Like an agenda.

Totally agree. I personally didn't see any of WW2, so at this point in time. I don't believe that it happened. #sarcasm

Nothing new came from Trump's meeting with Kim Jung Un in Singapore. North Korea have a history of promising the world and delivering nothing. While I'm not a supporter of Trump, I do hope that the current administration can make actual progress on this issue as a lot is at stake. Words are meaningless to North Korea.

Question

Did Trump meet Kim Jung Un or one of his doubles.

If it was a double, then the results of the meeting will be worthless and Kim Jung Un will have deceived Trump once again. Like that is hard to do.

Completely irrelevant line of reasoning.

How about all those Saddam,s WMD,s ...how about Gulf of Tonkin?...yep, gotta love unidentified intelligence.

Could it be Trump has been played for a fool?

What was it that Trump said after his meeting with Kim Jong Un? Something about that we no longer had to worry about North Korea?

What was it that Secretary of State Tillerson said about Donald Trump? Something about an effing moron?

Never honuring a deal with uncle Trump is an honurable deed! Good job K.J.!

"Did Trump meet Kim Jung Un or one of his doubles."

Or, did Kim meet Trump or one of his doubles? He does have quite few of them, hehe

"If it was a double, then the results of the meeting will be worthless and Kim Jung Un will have deceived Trump once again."

Kim deceived Trump before? When was that, Azzprin? Can't wait for the answer, hehe
