I do believe Trump just got himself checkmated.

Whether or not he actually told Kim heíd lift the sanctions is completely irrelevant.

Kimís as big a liar as he is, so who knows what the truth is.

Problem now is if he calls Kim a liar then that pretty much sends US-NK relations back to an antagonistic square one except that Kim was able to rassle a photo op with a US President (well, technically a US President) before humiliating him by reneging on him.

If Trump doesnít call Kim a liar, heís basically locked in to lift the sanctions, and NK still wins.

Itís a lose-lose for Trump. Guy got played badly.

2. He needs to be removed from office

He is clearly incompetent, anti-American, and an unnatural tone of orange.

6. I'm convinced he is doing all of this to please Putin.

Putin may or may not have compromising material on him. I think itís the Rosneft deal that motivates his treason.

7. He changes his story on anything every two minutes

It happens so often it's impossible to keep track of it

From a political POV, the only reasonable assumption is: he's not all there. From a legal POV, we should assume he's deliberately wandering the streets naked except for his bunny slippers, in order to avoid a future trial

We get no benefit right now from one single analysis

8. Checkmated twice in the same game, Re: war games

If they go on , he lied and he loses any trust from any adversarial country anywhere in any future negotiations. If they're cancelled he loses any trust from any allied country anywhere in any future negotiations. And either way, he's lost a good deal of respect from the very military of which he Commander-in-chief.
