    Nothing more than a game of charades IMO. No way will Trump agree to meet Kim and Kim knows it.

    They're going to need to do more than just say they'll consider disarming to bring a sitting US president to the table IMO.

    Trump already wants credit for taking a meeting without getting anything in return for it. Not sure about his book but this can't be one of his winning tactics.

    Why would " the left " go crazy ?

    I'm a bleeding heart liberal and I'm not going crazy.

    It's not really how it's done, typically (Democratic or Republican) presidents do not sit down with dictators without getting something in return for it and those terms are usually negotiated, it's not a matter of "going crazy" it's a historical fact. This is a huge win for NK.

    I think Trump may just want the credit he deserves for getting a North Korean leader to meet with a U.S. President since the Korean War.

    The South Koreans even said in their statement that it was President Trump's strategy of "maximum pressure" that has brought the North Koreans to this point, along with other "international pressure." You know, that "maximum pressure" that democrats said would bring Armageddon for sure.

    Can democrats give the President ANY credit or are we truly that divided and partisan? This is truly unprecedented.

    I personally do not trust the North Koreans, but any action other than war is good news to me! War on the Korean Peninsula would result in hundreds of millions dead within minutes with all the artillery that is pointed both ways across the DMZ, and if nuclear weapons were used...well...it would be devastatingly horrible.

    Just one example:

    Trump has asked for nothing, he's giving them a seat at the table and NK is getting everything it wants.

    Churchill said to the effect, ‘A dictator constantly rides the back of a hungry tiger and can never get off; lest he be eaten.’

    Who really knows. Nothing wrong with trying.

    I've always been of the opinion that there's nothing wrong with meeting face to face without any pre-conditions.

    It appears that you are one of the rational ones then. I mean, do you give the President credit for getting the North Koreans to this point, something that has not happened since the the Korean War? Or will you say this is going to be a horrible failure, we are getting played etc, etc...?

    I think what he meant by "go crazy" is that a lot of democrats and the left leaning media will spin this as Trump getting played and what not. In this divided/partisan day we live in, most democrats will not give the President ANY credit for this. That is my take.

    Ya that's probably true.
    Given what the SK guy said I'll give trump AND that "international group" The "credit" for setting up a meeting.

    What happens after that is anybody's guess.

    What did Obama get for sitting down with the Cuban dictator Raúl Castro? We normalized relations, but he did that BEFORE he sat down with Castro, so Obama actually GAVE the Cubans something before sitting down.

    Well see, you are rational.

    I do agree with you that what happens after is anybody's guess, hell, what happens before is still anybody's guess!

    stay tuned folks ... this is huge.

    President Trump is going to convince Kim to denuclearize.

    and he's probably going to do it on the golf course ... for maximum liberal meltdown.
