If Trump pulls it off and gets Kim to stop developing nukes then he rightfully gets props from me.

Why wouldn't he get props for trying? It's largely out of Trumps control

Posted one minute after me.

Either way, this is good news. If this works out, this will be a huge dent to so called foreign diplomacy "experts" who have lambasted him and said how much a joke the state department is at the moment.

I think I posted at the same time but edited it to add "Breaking" haha

Hopefully this is for real and not Un just playing games. He knows Trump is desperate for some wins and good news, but according to reports the sanctions are really hurting.

Not props for trying, props if he pulls off denuclearization on the Korean peninsula.

When's the last time the president of the US met with the leader of north korea? Clinton and Kim Jong Il?

Can't see this being a bad thing, so long as they both maintain their heads... on second thought, hah :-D

The only way this makes any sense is if the plan is to get Kim and most of the senior DPRK leader into a room and summarily execute every single one of them.

Otherwise this is a huge waste of time.

Actually I looked it up and Clinton was past his presidency.

I don't think any US president has ever met with the head of North Korean leadership... like literally ever.

DPRK is dumb if they are actually considering disarmament.

Most likely scenario: Kim gets the sanctions eased up and maybe some foreign aid for promises of disarmament but they'll renege like they always do.
