NYT, Colbert remade Trump's Kim Jong-un Fake Movie Trailer

FG lauds outcome of Kim, Trump historic summit

Marco Rubio (R-FL) was pressed to a clarify a tweet he posted on Tuesday calling totalitarian dictator Kim Jong Un "a total weirdo who would not be elected assistant dog catcher in any democracy". But about 30 percent said they approved of his handling of North Korea.

First, we need to assess the Joint Statement issued by President Trump and Chairman Kim in context.

With the conclusion of the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore, most rational observers note that the spectre of unnecessary conflict that haunted 2017 has been replaced by a peaceful process to deal with the North Korean nuclear threat that may take years to unfold.

Pyongyang in return "commits to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula".

Most experts assess that the North Korean leader got the better deal at the summit. I said, 'I want to stop that and I will stop that, and I think it's very provocative'.

"I suppose we could argue semantics, but let me assure you it's in the document", Pompeo told reporters Wednesday in Seoul.

The president said there was no tit-for-tat deal with Pyongyang where there is denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula in exchange for an end to us military exercises with South Korea.

SHAPIRO: Pompeo was in Seoul to talk with his counterparts from South Korea and Japan.

In a joint declaration following their meeting in Singapore on Tuesday, the North Korean leader pledged to move toward complete denuclearization of the peninsula and Trump vowed to guarantee the security of the United States' old foe.

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un participate in a signing ceremony during a meeting on Sentosa Island, June 12, 2018, in Singapore.




Despite the confusion and disappointment among some, the summit managed to, for a time at least, reset a relationship that has always been characterized by bloodshed and threats.

The Trump administration is suggesting the DPRK, or the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, model its future on paths taken by Singapore in the 1960s, Deng Xiaoping's China in the 1970s and Russian Federation under perestroika in the 1980s, in which closed authoritarian systems opened up under contiguous leadership (with less success in Russian Federation, where the Soviet Union ultimately fell to a kleptocratic system run by the same network of men). "I guess it gave me a little more shine of a light as far as like knowing the fact that I did something pretty, pretty historical as far as like bringing awareness to North Korea and some of the issues that's over there", Rodman said. No longer - sleep well tonight!'

Trump has sought to portray his unprecedented meeting with Kim as a significant accomplishment that has made the world less vulnerable to the North's nuclear arsenal. It did not include an explicit reference to "complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization" - something Pompeo had earlier insisted was the minimum condition for a deal.

"Trump has pursued what he calls a "maximum pressure" campaign" against Pyongyang to force it to give up its nuclear weapons. -South Korean military exercises - long a demand of China and North Korea, and until this week a non-starter for Washington - without apparently consulting South Korea or the Pentagon.

"China greatly appreciates the political decisions made by the two leaders, welcomes and supports the achievements of the meeting, and applauds the efforts made by relevant parties to make the meeting a success", Geng said.

He toughened up worldwide sanctions to further isolate North Korea and then agreed to meet directly with Kim after South Korea's president convinced him that the North was committed to giving up its nuclear weapons.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that Kim and Trump agreed that "it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Rounding out Trump's positive appraisal of leaders with a tight grip on power, the president was asked about his relationship with Vladimir Putin and his call to reinstate Russian Federation into the G-7 alliance.

After the meeting, Trump told reporters that he did address human rights with Kim. The U.S. Government has generally consulted quite closely with Japan and South Korea on the Korean nuclear crisis.
