The greatest negotiator in history. Just another ploy?

Do you remember Trump requesting
from the Mexican president, during
the wall negotiations, to say publicly
that Mexico will pay for it and he will find a
way to reimburse Mexico so Trump
Would come out looking like a winner. The Mexican president refused.
Well the same here my friends. Trump is eager for a win with N. Korea at any price that the likely outcome will be the following:
N. Korea to agree in principle to
dismantle its nuclear weapons over a longer time, say 5 to 10 years while we build
mutual trust. Trump will come out
proclaiming he won and how he is
the greatest negotiator the world
has ever seen and all that jazz. Actually all he is doing
is kick the can down the road.
The real winner will be N.Korea as it will keep its nukes to fight another day
and Trump already would have sold the farm.

2. Con men always

Promote themselves over and over with lies. He's like Bernie Maddoff , just in politics.

3. he and maddoff are both con men, but they are very much not alike.

maddoff's scam was very intelligent and sophisticated. he got away with it for years because he kept on top of the facts and manipulated them and the results in order to create a careful illusion that served him. it unraveled only when the truth came out.

donnie is the complete opposite end of the con artist spectrum. he tells lie upon lie, and it's so obvious that he's lying. no one is being fooled, not really. his con works because he rejects the notion that he should be held accountable for lying, and then everyone doubts everyone else's willingness and eventually their ability to enforce punishment for him lying.

very, very different from madoff.

9. Is English a second language for you? Your posts have an odd quality to them.

Not a criticism, but there is something unusual about your wording, syntax and spelling.

4. Negotiating with...

a ruthless murderous tyrannical criminal regime embedded in a government?

I thought Kim had SOME standards.
