North Korea to Dump Trump

Swampy

After Trump elevates Kim to the status of world leader:


North Korea is considering suspending denuclearization talks with the United States unless Washington changes its stance after the breakdown of a summit meeting in Hanoi between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a senior official said Friday.

Kim Jong Un is set to make an official announcement soon on whether to continue diplomatic talks and maintain the country’s moratorium on missile launches and nuclear tests, Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui told foreign diplomats and journalists in Pyongyang, the Associated Press reported.

The threat to suspend talks comes after evidence surfaced that North Korea has rebuilt a satellite rocket launchpad and amid speculation it might be preparing a rocket launch, a move that would seen as very provocative in Washington.

Choe said North Korea was deeply disappointed by the breakdown of the talks in Hanoi and said the United States had missed a golden opportunity there, though she still described the relations between Trump and Kim as “mysteriously wonderful.”

She said Pyongyang now has no intention of compromising or continuing talks unless the United States changes its “political calculation,” and takes measures that are commensurate with the steps North Korea has already taken, such as the 15-month moratorium on launches and tests, AP reported.

“On our way back to the homeland, our chairman of the state affairs commission said. ‘For what reason do we have to make this train trip again?’” she said, referring to Kim.

Spittin in the wind. Threats like that won't get the sanctions lifted. Trump is not Clinton, Bush, or Obama. He won't appease Kim like they did his father and grandfather.

The OP is saying the opposite kjun, like Trump, is irrelevant in his arty deal.

Trump has already given Kim more than Kim can believe! Kim knows Trump is stupid, vain and ignorant.


Raise Kiim's profile to world leader √

Cancel the war exercises with S. Korea√

End US military patrolling N. Korean ports for illegal imports √

No one see's Kim as a world leader. The exercises and patrols can begin anew tomorrow.

I remember the last time Trump sent an 'Armada' to North Korea, without knowing where it was,

kim is pulling the old rope-a-dope on trump, pretty easy maneuver to do when dealing with a confirmed dope and having plenty of rope.

Actually Bag O' Hair put Kim on the world stage by kowtowing to him and making himself subservient to Kim....traveling half way around the world to meet him in his area of the world. Think about those optics.

True. Also true about trump. Either one at any time could throw the entire world into havoc. Neither one cares one whit about humanity, let alone their own people.

Yes, best wait until someone occupies the WH that isn't dumber than a bag of rocks. Then maybe some good will come of it. Did anyone read about the group that captured a North Korean embassy in Spain and tortured some of the NK officials there? Possible CIA connections?

Kim played him like a fiddle. Wrote the clown a few love letters and the clown fell in love.

Kim got Chinese and Russian sanctions eased and military exercises halted. Trump got a love letter.

Loved how Kim praised Trump and blamed Pompeo and Bolton for the failed talks. I believe that to be true , left to his own Trump would have done something stupid so thank you Mr Pompeo and Mr Bolton. However, having Kim state that it wasn't really Trump in charge will tick him off big time. Enough that he may not listen to them next time. That would not be good.
