Talks with North Korea Fail

This is disappointing on many levels.

President Donald Trump landed back in Washington after the sudden collapse of his nuclear summit with Kim Jong Un – after saying in an interview he appreciates that North Korea spent ‘a lot of time’ building up its nuclear arsenal.

In an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News, conducted in Hanoi before Trump told the world why he failed to reach a deal with the North Korean dictator, Trump said he and Kim did not see eye to eye on what North Korea would have to give up for sanctions relief.

‘Well, they wanted to denuke certain areas and I wanted everything,’ Trump told Hannity.

‘And the sanctions are there and I didn’t want to give up the sanctions unless we had a real program. And they’re not ready for that and I understand that fully, I really do. I mean, they spent a lot of time building it and that doesn’t mean the world has to be happy,’ Trump said.

    North Korea has not launched a middle in over 400 days.

    There was a launch during Obama every 24 days on average.

    That is a good accomplishment, just getting the nation to talk.

    Sure, we were hoping for more, but dealing with socialist evil has to be firm. Trump did right thing from walking away from uncompromising, unrepentant socialist evil Un.

    All the libruls are making the joke “Now Trump can say he is a war veteran because he was shot down in Hanoi.”

    Liberals cannot joke, they have banned. All humor because someone, somewhere could be offended.

    Since your comment was not even funny, you are safe from it being offensive humor.

    Oh, I’m not unfunny.  I have a funny friend.  I’ve hired funny people!  You must be the unfunny one.

    “Now Trump can say he is a war veteran because he was shot down in Hanoi.”

    That is very very funny!

    Jjf, Pat,

    If you want to double down on the offensive humor….at least double down on something funny…like AOC’s twitter feed when she is trying to be serious!

    Or cow farts.

    I’m sure this story isn’t over yet, lets not jump to conclusions.

    I like my heroes who weren’t shot down.

    Kevin, you found some of this humor offensive?

    Point to the place on this doll where the humor touched you.

    But the President is confident in Kim’s word that he didn’t know anything about an American student tortured and returned to his parents in a Vegetative state because there are a ton of Americans in NK prisons and , well , bad things happen there .

    The same way he took Putin’s word that they didn’t poison the gent in Britain and the Saudi princes word that he had nothing to do with the NYT reporter who was chopped up into pieces .

    Kim thought he had a mark . Too bad we didn’t see the video of Bolton tackling the President before he had a chance to give something else to His great personal friend .

    Owen sez: “This is disappointing on many levels.”

    Not at all. Would you rather an Obama/Iran style deal? I think not.

    In October of 1986 Ronald Reagan walked away from Gorbachev in Reykjavik, Iceland, refusing to bend to Gorbachev’s demands on SDI.

    It was the beginning of the end of the Cold War.

    In 1987 the INF treaty was signed, removing intermediate-range nuclear weapons from the arsenals of both superpowers. Two years after the INF the USSR began collapsing.

    Trump = Reagan in terms of preparation and letting the policy folks work out an agreement BEFORE the leaders meet .
    Sure .
