Trump Meets Kim in DMZ, Becomes First Sitting US Pres. to Cross into N. Korea



Developing story. Meetings still ongoing.


Update: Meetings concluded. Trump & Moon walk Kim back to North Korea. Sanctions remain but both Kim & Trump committed to establishing teams on both sides for restarting dialogue.

'Why don't we meet at the DMZ'
The next day it's done. Brilliant!

Still so much to do but what a great and historic moment. The Pope sent out a 'Hallalejuh' today.
If the China talks keep inching towards agreement...

Just keep trying Mr. President, just keep trying.

LOL. And he treats people how? And he treats the media (other than those like Faux News and Rush Limpbone that kiss his feet) how? Get real. He gets exactly what he has coming to him by most of the media.

"As you're seeing there, just a few moments ago, in these almost unimaginable pictures, seeing a U.S. president on North Korean soil, there is sort of a human breakthrough here, a diplomatic breakthrough here, just in the sense that they have developed this relationship, potentially, that could yield big dividends down the road"

What are they going to get?


And I do agree this is a historic event. The problem is, Putin a Little Kim have been playing Trump like a fiddle, and this could be just one more case where this is happening again. Remember, there is no free press in NK. Kim controls it all. So he is going to spin this entirely to HIS benefit exactly how he wants it...just as he has been doing to his people all along.

As for Trump, how many times have we heard of his great successes with Kim before? All to have been pretty much failures. You can't trust Trump one bit, nor anything he says, because he is self-serving and a pathological liar.

I do really hope something good comes from this. I am just really skeptical because of the track record of the players involved.

Well if they win and get it their way they lose, country falls apart like Venezuela. If they lose they continue to get dominated by actual hard working people and get on the welfare line with their interpretive dance and gender studies degrees. Want fries with that?

Anyone else thinks he's angling for a Nobel Peace prize? I mean Obama got one so that's gotta be on his mind. Trump loves awards, accolades, and recognition. Not having that prize when Obama got one has to sting.

Ask the people of South Korea and Japan if it matters one iota what his motivation is.

Wtr did Obama get one for? He got a NPP right after getting elected, for what being the 1st black president? He did absolutely nothing to warrant a NPP.

Then again Gore got one for his movie about global warming. The runner up was Irena Sendler, a Polish nurse who put her ass on the line to smuggle jewish kids from the Warsaw Ghetto. Let that sink in.

Its definitely a great photo op and a big PR win I think for Kim. I hope this creates more room for continued and positive negotiations.

Nothing too bad about it, except for the parent's of the kid they sent back nearly dead. I wonder how they feel about it?

Iirc, the Nobel panel said it was a mistake...Obama went on to bomb like a champ and many civilians were killed after receiving the award.

Means to an end. You need to talk to someone to end the Bs with NK. Unfortunately Lil Kim is it. In WW2 the US called mass murderer Joey Stalin, Uncel Joe. He was a sadistic asshole just like Hitlet but he was a means to an end that end being WW2.

There is a big difference between keeping your distance and negotiating, and having an all out love affair and expressing your admiration over and over for a tyrant and a killer. I don't like people who admire killers, be they dictators, or the guy down the street who kills someone. Trump has expressed his admiration for Kim and Putin time and again, as well as other law breakers, and that is a problem.

Why, yes.
When becoming the first sitting US President to set foot on North Korean soil while attempting to persuade the lunatic leader to give up his nuclear arsenal, one should put said leader in a headlock. Maybe kick him in the shin. But, by all means, do not treat him kindly.
Toss a pack of Black Cats under his chair for hoots and giggles!

Dems are jealous out of their minds while covering it with photo op and other rhetorical nonsense. They're seething.

Feeding koi is a photo op.
Trump will forever be in the history books as the first ever. Can't change that.

I am not jealous in the least...I am actually glad for it but it is what it is-a photo op. Perhaps it will lead to better things.

No difference...When you call a sadistic madman Uncle Joe and hand him half of Europe, that is not exactly keeping your distance
