President Trump is not a man who minces words or who plays games when it comes to serious issues, one of the many reasons he is so beloved by the average American citizen who is sick to death of soft liberal “leading from behind” nonsense.
The president spoke Wednesday night issuing a warning to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying he’s more than wiling to walk away from the negotiating table if he’s not serious about disarming their nuclear weapons.
The Washington Times has more details:
President Trump said Wednesday night he’s prepared to walk away from the bargaining table at an historic summit with Kim Jong-un if he feels the North Korean leader isn’t negotiating in good faith over giving up his nuclear weapons.
“If I think it’s a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we’re not going to go,” Mr. Trump said at a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “If the meeting, when I’m there, is not fruitful, I will respectfully leave the meeting.”
The president plans to meet with Mr. Kim in late May or early June to discuss denuclearization of the communist nation, which has also been testing intercontinental ballistic missiles and raising its threats against the U.S. and its allies.
Mr. Trump revealed Wednesday that he dispatched CIA Director Mike Pompeo earlier this month to meet with Mr. Kim in Pyongyang to lay the groundwork for a summit between the two leaders. The president said that meeting went “very smoothly.”
Several previous U.S. administrations have failed in their attempts to get North Korea to stop developing nuclear weapons, yet it seems Trump is on a path to success in this area.
This no doubt leaves those who are 100 percent opposed to the president — Republican and Democrat alike — feeling a bit sick to their stomachs, after all, this is a man who gets his foreign policy from morning shows, right?
Clearly Trump is smarter than folks give him credit for and it’s highly possible that, believe it or not, he actually knows what he’s doing.
While his strategy for handling North Korea may have been unorthodox, it’s hard to argue with the results. And if he manages to get the country to disarm, neutralizing a serious threat to world safety, we should be happy and celebrate that victory.
