LOL @ you guys falling for fake talking points.

A. The missile site was collapsing, it was shut down NOT because of Trump. On that note, they are still gonna continue to test and create missiles

B. Good for him that he got those people rescued. Obama's been there done that without having to appease them.

Kim has been legitimized and will use that to his advantage. Kim wanting to still meet has nothing to do with Trump being a great negotiator but more to do with Kim use it to his advantage.

Trump has been played by China and Mexico (that we know of), he's not the negotiator that he thinks/claims he is, just how he's not as rich as he claims he is.

He's a con man and he's selling snake oil to all of his idiotic supporters.

Btw.... ‘If’ reports are true and Trump cancelled because he thought Kim would cancel, it makes him WEAK.

Not only weak but dangerous.

The warhawk Bolton was instrumental in this decision.

Quote:
The decision occurred so abruptly that the administration was unable to give congressional leaders and key allies advance notice and the letter went out while more than two dozen foreign journalists, including several U.S. citizens, were inside North Korea where they had gone to witness a promised dismantling of a nuclear test site. At 8:20 a.m., the State Department sent a note to reporters touting the positive discussions that Pompeo was having with Asian counterparts in preparation for the summit.

The move exposed significant disagreements among the president's top advisers. Several administration officials said Pompeo, who has taken the lead in negotiating with the North Koreans, blamed Bolton for torpedoing the progress that had already been made. Pompeo flew to Pyongyang twice, met personally with Kim and helped secure the release of three Americans who had been held there.

Bolton, a longtime national security hawk who has publicly advocated for regime change in North Korea, was integral, these officials said, to convincing Trump to back out of the summit.


Bolton has been talking about regime change in both NK and Iran for a while now.

All started with the Libya comments by Bolton, threatening North Korea.

Quote:
Bolton was first to issue such a threat on April 29, when he also referred to Libya, whose former leader, Muammar Qaddafi was ousted, with U.S. assistance, several years after he agreed to give up ambitions of a nuclear weapons program. Such comparisons to Qaddafi have infuriated the North Koreans.

Trump tried to repair the damage on May 17, when he rejected the Libyan comparison and later guaranteed Kim's security. Pence's remarks reignited the North's anger and a senior foreign diplomat responded by issuing a counter threat of a "nuclear showdown."

One senior administration official said that Bolton and Pompeo, new to each other since Bolton joined the administration less than two months ago, have been at odds about the summit since it was first proposed. The State Department, this official said, had wanted more advance work done with agreements and decisions on achievable goals made before Trump and Kim met.

Bolton, who has led the effort on the White House side, has worked unilaterally to shape the summit. One person familiar with the summit preparations said it was Bolton who drove the decision to cancel and that he had convinced Trump to make the move. Trump then relayed his decision to Pompeo, who felt blindsided, according to multiple officials.

A driving factor for the president was the belief that Kim was heading toward a similar conclusion.

Trump is essentially a puppet for Bolton. So much for draining the swamp..
