North Korea is Laughing at Trump

Donald Trump has been known to do things off the cuff, that are dangerous, and not well thought out.  Because he thinks he is so smart, he assumes he knows all that he needs to know before saying anything, or taking any action.  He talked about Nambia.  He assumed that a person’s father was dead, but he wasn’t. He said we’d build a wall and get Mexico to pay for it.  He said that he’d repeal Obama care and replace it with something better.  He has a long a colorful history of saying he’ll do things he can’t.As many stupid things as Trump has done and said, when the media reported that Trump and Kim Jong Un were going to have a face to face meeting, I was shocked!  How did he do it?  Had he really done what no other president had been able to accomplish?  The answer is that he was speaking about things of which he knows nothing.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had to tell the press what Trump really meant …instead of what he said.  She Basically said Ignore what the President Said.

For YEARS American policy dictated that such a meeting could only happen if North Korea made concessions on its nuclear program first. It turns out Trump’s foreign policy masterstroke did not come as the result of a Metternichtian calculation but instead a completely spontaneous outburst.

South Korean official Chung Eui-yong was in the White House yesterday meeting with other officials. Trump decided to see Chung right away; maybe Fox News was in repeats or something. Trump “then asked Mr. Chung to tell him about his meeting with Mr. Kim,” reports the New York Times. “When Mr. Chung said that the North Korean leader had expressed a desire to meet Mr. Trump, the president immediately said he would do it, and directed Mr. Chung to announce it to the White House press corps. 

It sounds from this account that Trump had no real idea that North Korea has always wanted a face-to-face meeting with the U.S. president, and the U.S. has always imposed conditions. That would certainly be the logical interpretation of this account, given that, in the last week, Trump has confused North Korea with the other, extremely different South Korea, and demanded a laughably tiny $1 billion trade concession from China when he was supposed to demand $100 billion.

I wonder if Trump even remembered the name Otto Warmbier ?

One Pentagon estimate warned that even without nuclear weapons being used, the first days of a war with North Korea could result in fatalities of 20,000 a day in South Korea. Defense Secretary James Mattis, has warned that a conflict of this magnitude would be “catastrophic” and “probably the worst kind of fighting in most people’s lifetimes.”

Trump’s attitude about negotiations with North Korea seem to be as spontaneous and thoughtless as his reference to Kim Jong un as the Rocket Man.

  1. I don’t think this is going to end well – even if the meeting actually happens.
    You are right -Trump’s huge ego makes it impossible for him to know what he does not know. He will get taken for a ride – and so will all of us.
    I still have trouble believing this fool got elected – so many ignorant and gullible voters out there. The scary part about so many of those voters is they still have faith in him. The only person he cares about is himself – wish they could comprehend that..

  2. It kinda looks like putin and kim un are playing with their useful idiot. Trump is a sitting duck turd. Trump has to go, putin must not win his election and kim un must be removed too. All 3 must be removed to stabilize this world. United Nation team 6×3 is needed.

  3. OK, let’s not rush to judgement. We know 45 liked to read Hitler’s books. Adolph was an Austrian like Metternich. Maybe 45 read about Klemens hooking up Napoleon with a French lady to discourage war. Kim likes young women. So 45 is going to let Kim marry Tiffany to solve the nuke problem and his own problem remembering his other daughter.

    That’s all I got. The image of 45 meeting tech savvy, fast talking 30 year old with many years of political leadership experience? 45 might as well be fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. for the championship. He is toast…..
