    Btw, it was just YESTERDAY that Pompey announced this trip and that he would be traveling with a newly named special representative (Ford executive) for North Korea. Did he announce the trip without telling Trump first? Or did Trump last minute call off the trip because of something he saw on TV?

    So, he’s not going to win the Nobel Peace Prize?

    Gotta give him credit for trying though. You don't make peace with your friends because they are already your friends. You have to try to make peace with your enemies.

    Now, having said that, according to Trump, the Canadians, the Brits and the Germans are now our enemies.

    I don’t fault Trump for trying. I have issue with the early victory lap and his stooges pushing for a Nobel Peace prize when **** ain’t done yet.

    After meeting with Kim he attacked the "fake news" for saying that nothing was accomplished and told us we could all sleep well now.

    Who knew denuclearization of North Korea was so complicated?:oops:

    Agreed. Personally, I was really hoping he could make it happen, but the way he strutted around like a hyperactive peacock before anything was done was what was so off-putting.

    Yeah, there’s nothing wrong with trying, for sure.

    My main issue is that he went from fire and fury to some form of man love, and ended up absolutely nowhere. He has no policy, gameplan or strategy in place. He’s all over the map with NK just like he is on everything else.

    But, oh yeah, we can sleep safe now.

    He did not "call off north Korea talks," he is withholding the SoS from going to a meeting . The talks ("looks forward") are still happening. It is clear that the two parties agreed that not all the bullet points have been clarified. It happens, however I criticize the fact that they make the planning of these lower level meetings public. They should announce them after the fact.
