Breaking!

Trump totally gives up everything for a promise!


Here's a link to The Hill's story on the matter and the first 4 paragraphs:
North Korean-controlled media on Wednesday reported that President Trump agreed to lift sanctions against the country during his historic summit with leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Reuters reported.

Both leaders signed an agreement committing the United States to unspecified “security guarantees” in exchange for denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula.

Trump reportedly offered to lift sanctions on the cash-strapped country in addition to those security guarantees, according to Reuters.

North Korea's KCNA news agency cites Trump making the pledge to lift the economic barriers after saying the U.S. would end joint military exercises with South Korea.

1. President Moon and the rest of South Korea must feel

betrayed. It was Moon's administration who set up the "historic bullshit" meeting, wherein t-rump along with his cronies walked into Un's trap.


I feel for SK.

3. How can one person turn his back on every ally and betray them, assuming the despots are friends?

The levels idiocy and narcissism are stunning.

15. Narcissistic triangulation...

Narcissists don't like witnesses for exactly this reason... They prefer one-on-one's to "get stories straight" and control the narrative.

We'll never know what was actually said during their meeting. They both like it that way.

9. Did Kim agree to stop his own "war games"?

Did Donnie Two Scoops get any concessions from his next-to-favorite dictator? Did Kim agree to remove at least part of its missiles, troops and cannons along the DMZ? Did Trump at least make him choose between chicken or fish at lunch?

All Trump wants is the Nobel Peace Prize (and for the committee to rescind Obama's) and "the most beautiful condos you've ever seen along beautiful beaches under where North Korea shoots weapons."

And the Repugs won't say a damned thing.
