Donald Trump’s commemorative coin to celebrate the ground-breaking summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un is on sale – cheap. Someone in the White House got way out in front of the summit. First, Trump gave a fake-modest chuckle when people suggested the summit would bring him the Nobel Peace prize. Then, there was this.

Former White House aide, A.J. Delgado tweeted about the White House’s “idiot:”

‘Who’s the idiot in the WH that green-lit those commemorative coins for a summit that almost certainly wasn’t going to happen?
Amazing..’

Then, she continued:

‘And the Nobel Peace Prize that had already been awarded.

Unfortunately, she had to leave the White House and tweeted earlier:

‘When you do the “OMG, I can’t afford to take a $180,000 WH job bc I make such huge child support payments to my son’ schtick…. but a reporter apparently goes and reads your public financial-affidavit and….”‘

It appears that those coins really were put up for sale at a discount. Trump announced the summit between him and Kim was off, even before his administration notified Kim. That was a poor negotiation play.

Of course, the White House denied any responsibility for the coins. Yet, the White House Communications Agency that designed and created it reported directly to the president and staff.

USA TODAY reported that Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said:

‘This is a standard procedure by the White House Communications Agency. These coins are designed and done by that organization.’

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) warned Trump:

‘I urge the White House to take Kim off the coin. Challenge coins are a time honored tradition and certainly appropriate in this situation, but Kim Jong Un’s face has no place on this coin. He is a brutal dictator and something like the Peace House would be much more appropriate.’
