Shep Smith: Trump gave Kim everything he wanted, and got nothing in return
By Avery Anapol - 06/12/18 04:14 PM EDT


Fox News host Shep Smith tore into President Trump over the North Korea summit, saying the president gave Kim Jong Un everything he wanted, without getting anything in return.

Smith lamented that the agreement signed by Trump and Kim at the historic summit did not contain language guaranteeing “complete, verifiable, irreversible” denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

“America demanded complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization…there's no guarantee of that, not even words to that effect,” Smith said.

The agreement, signed by the two leaders in Singapore Tuesday, commits the U.S. to provide unspecified “security guarantees” for North Korea, in exchange for a denuclearized peninsula. But it does not provide details on how or when that denuclearization will be reached.

Trump also said Tuesday that the U.S. and South Korea would halt some of their joint military exercise, reportedly without consulting South Korea.

Smith, who has not shied away from criticizing Trump, said that the meeting was largely advantageous to Kim.

“He wanted the photos, the seat at the table, he wanted the legitimacy that came with the event, the handshake with America’s president,” he said. “Kim Jong Un got it all, for actually doing nothing.”

Smith also listed human rights abuses in North Korea, which were apparently not discussed in Tuesday’s talks.

“A regime that tortures and murders its own citizens, imprisons children for the actions of parents and grandparents, and a leader who has committed crimes against humanity,” Smith said.

2. I doubt very much if Trump got nothing in return.

I suspect he's arranged some deal that provide generous personal benefits to him--his own business interests and those of his crooked family members. I can't see how there can be anything else going on with this BS setup.

4. So where will the next Trump Tower be?

On a North Korean beach or in Pyongyang? Because that's what Dolt 45 got out of this, I bet. NK is a yuuuge untapped market for places he can plaster his name all over.
