Trump's Summit with Kim Jong Un could reasonably be considered a "success"

as long as you ignore:

1. He didn't prepare for the summit and, in fact, felt that he didn't need to.
2. The verbal insults he lobbed at Kim Jong Un at rallies and on Twitter over the last year, which could have potentially erupted into a shooting, possibly nuclear, war. Thankfully, it didn't though Trump apparently discussed giving North Korea a "bloody nose".
3. Initially canceling the planned Summit due to perceived hostility from Kim and sending a hostile letter to Kim Jong Un before the Summit was on again.
4. Agreeing to cancel joint US-South Korean military exercises, apparently even before consulting with South Korea. We don't even know what exactly Trump and Kim talked about in private.
5. Walking away from the Summit with a vague and amorphous "agreement" with Kim Jong Un that appears, by all accounts, weaker than the Iran Deal that he recently pulled us out of. Worse, he didn't even bother to stick around long enough to really work on the agreement more just because he was in a hurry to get back home for no discernible reason.

1. it's was a "success" because his goal is to realign foreign policy away from our "allies" and

towards our "adversaries".

the g7 meeting was a "success" as well, as is the trade wars he's starting.


why do people keep thinking he's trying to improve america for the sake of americans?
he's only trying to improve things for himself, and he's best positioned to do that by realigning america with russia.

everything he's doing in foreign policy makes far more sense if you accept that he's a russian puppet and is trying to realign america to be on russia's side.

3. Yeah, right. He makes the best deals

 

Longtime con artist and New York huckster who juggled accounts, stiffed contractors and AHEM laundered mob and Russian money until Mark Burnett scooped his useless ass off the street and turned him into a fucking TV star.

And he parlayed that shit all the way into the White House. And we get to suffer the consequences. Hurray!

The horrors that are being perpetrated on the children of frightened immigrants fleeing from even worse horror is just a glimpse of what this Draconian regime has in store.

But there's always an out for this obscene piece of shit blame the Democrats! And Clinton's emails!

Lock him the fuck up!
