Trump Says Hed Meet With Kim Jong Un Under Right Circumstances

Source: Bloomberg

President Donald Trump said he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un amid heightened tensions over his country’s nuclear weapons program if the circumstances were right.

“If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Trump said Monday in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. “If it’s under the, again, under the right circumstances. But I would do that.”

The U.S. has no diplomatic relations with North Korea, and as recently as last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said at the United Nations that the U.S. would negotiate with Kim’s regime only if it made credible steps toward giving up its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

“Most political people would never say that,” Trump said of his willingness to meet with the reclusive Kim, “but I’m telling you under the right circumstances I would meet with him. We have breaking news.”

"We have breaking news." That pretty much sums it up.

5. It might go something like this...




"Oh, hi Donald!"

"Hi Kim! You're a pretty smart cookie."

"Well, we have lots of Nodong missiles around. Want to get up close to one?"

"I know all about Nodongs, Kim. But THAADly I'll take a look. Oops, I meant to say gladly."

7. With enough compliments Trump could be turned to threaten South Korea.

Since North Korea has little to no cash North Korean slave labor must be tempting.

10. Is there any way we can convince the Donald to travel to North Korea for a summit?

He'd never get through it without denigrating Koreans and stretching his eyes to look Asian. Crazy Kim might invite him to play the game show where the young woman sprays people in the face.
