There’s much to dislike about orange man right now, but meeting with Kim at the Korean DMZ is something that Trump deserves credit for. Trump became the first US President to set foot in North Korea so the meeting has some real historic relevancy.
Donald Trump has become the first sitting US president to set foot in North Korea, after meeting Kim Jong-un in the area dividing the two Koreas.
Mr Trump and the North Korean leader posed for handshakes before talking for nearly an hour in the heavily fortified demilitarised zone (DMZ).
Both countries agreed to set up teams to resume stalled nuclear talks.
Their last summit broke down in February with no progress on denuclearisation in North Korea.
It looks like a third summit is in the works and that there will be more talks. Kim was also invited to the United States by Trump.
And say what you want, but even though there has only been modest progress with North Korea, this is certainly a much better situation than we’ve had in the past. We certainly wouldn’t have seen images like this if Hillary Clinton was elected President.
The only problem is that Trump has all these lunatics around him who are trying to fuck things up. Mike Pompeo, John Bolton and Jared Kushner being the worst three of the bunch. Hopefully things will work out though.
