Donny continuing his tour of capitulation to and appeasement of Kim.

Donny continuing his tour of capitulation to and appeasement of Kim.

War would be better, right? Or just give up on getting the N Koreans to give up their nukes, right?

Too bad Trump's predecessors couldn't get this problem resolved. Trump is resolving it. He's had less than 3 years, he's gonna have 5 more years.

My post neither explicitly or implicitly stated this.

Donny's resolving this issue? Didn't he already tell us it was resolved? Was he lying or just misinformed? It's hard to tell with him.

Yeah, he tends to get stuff done even with all the Democrats and RINOS and the media against him.

Would have had USMCA done if the Democrat-run House hadn't been sitting on it for 9 months after Trump negotiated it. They have been delaying ratifying it because it would be good for Americans and of course Trump's campaign.

How do you figure? A postponement of a military exercise does not constitute capitulation and appeasement. All the crippling sanctions are still in place. No money has been given to N Korea, unlike during previous administrations. You really should admit that at least up to this point Trump has been a seriously peacemongering president.

These military excercises are, indeed, provocative. Of course, the belligerent rhetoric that often emanates from the various countries involved doesn't help matters.

Post-Trump, it will be interesting to see real dialogue occur.

But Chip Star says that postponing them is capitulation and appeasement. You guys are clearly not on the same page.

You mean post-Kim. He 's the one not cooperating. Anyway, post-Trump won't be for another 5 years. KIm has less than that to make substantial progress on de-nuking.

Unlike the cult of Trump, those of us who oppose him don't always follow HQ's orders or buy into various monothought cliques. It's called thinking for ourselves. I recommend Trumpists to try it, sometime.

You mean post-Kim.

Nope, I mean post-Trump.

He 's the one not cooperating.

I wouldn't blame him for being dubious, given the US (under Trump) betrays allies and welches on deals.

Anyway, post-Trump won't be for another 5 years.

We're already post-Trump. Just counting down the days.

North Korea will never give up its nukes. That ploy should be taken off the board.

Trump doesn't betray allies, he just makes them pay up. And I have no problems with getting us out of bad deals. Talk about betraying, it's betraying Americans to stay in bad deals.

We're already post-Trump. Just counting down the days.

Only 429 days until Jan. 20, 2025!

North Korea will never give up its nukes.

I think they will. If they don't, a whole lotta people are gonna die in the war to deprive them of them.

Either way, they're not keeping them.

Kim is far more obsessed with damaging Japan than fellow Koreans in the South. The threat is to Japan, not S. Korea dear Americans

Tweeting, golfing and capitulating to and appeasing Kim are doing things; just not the correctvrhings.

Someone hasn't done any research orbthryd know the USMCA is also opposed by republicans in the house because they don't want to provide protections for LGBTQ and pregnant women. Very compassionate.

So, on Monday the DPRK (aka 'Norks') went ahead with theirs. Laughing, they must be.

I know the definitions of capitulate and appease; that's how I figure.

Logic failure. I also think the war games are provocative; I also know that Donny ain't getting anything in return for delaying them, which is appeasing Kim's desire to no have the games and capitulating to Kim's demands to not have the games.
