So you’re not worried about the Southern border. Sorry, what do you expect, Nancy to block Trump from delivering in the House chambers his SOTU speech and she can go on Waltzing over to the troops pretending she cares for them? No, that’s not how it works, you punch me, but I can’t punch back, how ludicrous. If the Democrats worried and I mean, really worried about the security and safety of the entire country, they would seal the Southern border.

I'm worried about the Northern border, and all our airports and seaports where 99% of the terrorists enter our country - what is it Trumpers don't get about numbers - 6 individuals on the terror list were stopped at the southern border, the remaining 3994 were stopped at the northern border and our air and sea ports. And the Trump shutdown is making those less secure.

The Trump Shutdown is making us less safe and endangering our economy - plus making life miserable for all Americans - but especially those without a paycheck. 

Yes, so the Democrats could end this and yet they won’t. Why do they hate securing our borders? Democrats are really, dumb! Actually, they’re at an advantage here, they got Trump cornered, they give Trump his wall in exchange for a slew of Democrat proposals and legislations a fair trade, Trump gets what he wants and the Democrats can do it with an even stronger hand legislatively, but they won’t because they’re so filled with hate, they’re squashing a golden opportunity and would rather deny their constituents, the very people that put them in office than to give Trump a win....dumb, dumb, dumb!

Yes, and Trump could end this and he won't. He already agreed to a funding bill in Dec - then came the "great humiliation" and he flip-flopped. He's dug himself a hole with no way out. Talk about stupid.

Maybe he'll come to his senses tomorrow for his "Big Announcement" - "I have made the Democrats cave, I received $10.00 to build our great wall - it will build one foot of six inch curb. I won!"

Or maybe the Dems will come to their senses and finally care about our borders.

See above.

Of Trump going to war to wipe out that nation, yeah, I kinda am to be honest.

I need a transalation.

???? China is doing fine and Putin will spend some of his own billions if he can make trouble for the US - they'll continue to sustain the regime because it ties down the US.

Yes, China will be fine, but they have their own people and they’re not, cannot and will not be NK lifeline, just enough to keep his eyes above water, they know the President is unpredictable and would cut off and sanction China and the Chinese don’t want to go through more sanctions either since we are their biggest trading partner they know that won’t fly. They can hurt us financially and we can do the same right back to them. Russia has their own financial and internal problems, they won’t go to bat to the great lengths China would in regard to propping up the regime.

Open your eyes - China has been nK's lifeline since 1950 - they ain't going to change now.

But he hasn't, and the troops readiness and training continue to decrease. Mattis left for a reason.

And there are more generals out there that can replace and do as good as a job as he did. The way the whole thing works, Trump plays Kim, he plays Trump, after they finish playing with each other perhaps the real talks can begin.

That's fantasy - Kim will play Trump like a violin - he'll keep his missiles and nukes, and the US will give, give, give - with nothing in return. Trump is a sucker for going to this next Summit. Why not say, I'll give you your Summit, but our inspectors get to visit and inspect your nuclear weapons sites- you can keep them for the moment - but we want to see them and see how powerful they are...

And the Trumpers continue to blindly follow him as he crashes security at our air and sea ports, endangers aviation safety, and closes the FDA...

No he didn’t promise any of those things and none of those have happened.

Every one of those happened - and a lot more (worse)...

But he did promise to meet with North Korea with an intention of denuclearization and normalizing relations. That promise still ongoing, this is proof of that effort.

He got bamboozed, played, snookered, whatever you want to call it. Kim is playing him for a chump (rhymes with Trump..)

Yes, to the opinion of liberals that worry about their anti-American globalist elites they would think so. 2. And the proof of that is....Buzzfeed? 3. He should listen to them, Pelosi and Chuck listen to Mika, Joe, Lemon, Zucker. Griffin, we get it. 4. And yet the Democrats still are incognito when it comes to the border security, why? Hating America is the new blood sport?

I counted 4 negatives out of 280.....

I can't type that many...

You have a fundamental misunderstanding of this issue. 

No, I’m not, not at all.

First, the US gives nothing to nKorea - food, fuel etc. Everything that nKorea gets comes from and thru China, with a small bit thru Russia and thru illegal shipping.

And as of right now, China is not giving that much aid to the NK not much to the extent where they are out of the deep end on this.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/29/world/asia/south-korea-ship-seized.html

Kim's charm offensive has meant China and Russia are mostly ignoring the sanctions, and it wouldn't surprise me if sKorea is too....

Probably, but it’s still not enough to sustain the nation, China and their economy slowing because of the trade talks, Russia with its fluttering economy. That can only go on for so long, not to mention feeding the troops in this situation is not making it easier.

Yet Trump agrees to reduce our exercises and training in Skorea and Kim gives up nothing - in fact he has continued to build new missile facilities.

Trump must feel like a fool - instead of swindling others like he is used to, he got swindled and played...

Not to worry, Trump can resume them anytime, it’s not like the President can change his mind.

And at the next Summit he'll get played even more - all while trying to distract from Cohen and his tapes, recording, memos, erc., proving Trump telling him to lie to Congress

Being played goes both ways and right now, we have the cash, the sanctions and the military might of the US to back up that diplomacy. Funny, how liberals think they know better then the Pentagon and it’s Joint Chiefs of Staffs. Hate the President all you want, but Kim is on a time clock and when this President has enough, Kim might be in for a serious rude awakening.

Promise #1: I'll destroy America's credibility around the world...

Promise #2: I'll do Putin's bidding...

Promise #3: I'll do everything Ingram, Hannity or Limbaugh say....

Promise #4: I'll make America more unsafe...

Yep, more than 280...

Yet he still has time to keep 280+ promises he made and still continue to meet with North Korea to continue the relations.

i thought liberals were the “it’s none of your business who I’m sleeping with” people, no?

Who or how many?

Trump is giving Kim a little more rope and when he’s had a enough, Congress will tighten the sanctions, now will them make him cry “uncle?” That’s not the point, something liberals don’t get, the point is to make it as unbearably painful for the regime as possible. And they haven’t had sanctions as punishing as these. We have money, food, all the comforts and time, Kim doesn’t.

I thought Trump and Kim were best buds and it would all be sorted very quickly, you know after the first meeting he came back for a round of golf and piece of chocolate cake to celebrate.

Kim has so far taken him to the cleaners,

Not really...

The Summit is just another distraction, one of many to come, as more bombshells and revelations come out on the Trump Crime family; the one Robert Mueller is dismantling just like he did John Gotti's...

Yeah, uh-huh...lol

Kim wants SK money and technology, Moon wants NK nukes and natural resources.

Both are buying time to build up for a reunification under Chinese alignment.

Good timing, get some attention away from the total complete mess that is his presidency and the nation by doing another waste of tax money photo op with the fat one who will just make more vague "promises". He just went to visit Xi Jing Ping to coordinate their strategy.

It’s just a distraction from (insert fake news of the day)! Anything he does or tries to do is just a distraction from something else per liberals.

I sure am glad we have a president who can multitask. This will be good to continue the conversation with Notth Korea.

President Trump will receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his daring initiatives towards peace......

The Dotard and the Rocket Man agreeing to meet for more fluff talks. Anything for a distraction from the real problems you have going on,eh?

I'm all for finding some peace deal with nKorea - but the imbecile Trump ain't the guy to do it.

Kim has so far taken him to the cleaners, and doing his best to drive a wedge between sKorea and the US.

The Summit is just another distraction, one of many to come, as more bombshells and revelations come out on the Trump Crime family; the one Robert Mueller is dismantling just like he did John Gotti's...

Why the need for more negotiations and another summit? I thought Trump solved everything with his Singapore photo opp?

Trump will accomplish nothing.
