The great deal maker and president, Donald Trump, threw history into the country’s face by holding his meeting with the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un in his own way. Before Trump headed home to claim his Nobel Peace Prize, he made the trip about himself. Apparently, this was his “most courageous” real estate deal ever.
POTUS bragged that he had not slept “in 25 hours.” That might have been a disadvantage to most, but he thought not.
Trump ad libbed that he got Jong Un to agree to denuclearization of his country. Never mind that was not in the signed summary between the two men.
When it came to the dictator’s abducting Japanese citizens, our commander-in-chief said “it’s rough.” Then, he dismissed the horrors of captured prisoners saying it was “rough in a lot of places.”
It looks as if this was all about real estate to the man who normally sits in the Oval Office. Trump gushed over North Korea’s “great beaches:”
‘As an example they’ve got great beaches… I explained, you could have the best hotels in the world right there. Think of it from a real estate perspective.’
The real estate mogul continued:
‘President Trump: “North Korea has great beaches. You see that whenever they’re exploding cannons into the ocean.”
Trump urged the world to think of his big deal from “a real estate perspective. He crooned about location, location, location – that special strategic position right between China and South Korea.
In the president’s press conference, he caused people to cringe when he said:
‘”Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace” – US President Donald Trump on “honest, direct” meeting with Kim Jong-un.
Trump went it on to make it worse:
“#TrumpKimSummit: Donald Trump says US will be stopping “very provocative” war games with South Korea.”
When a reporter asked about North Korea’s “network of gulags,” 45 responded:
‘They are one of the great winners today. That large group of people that you are talking about. I think they will be one of the great winners as a group.’
‘Responding to a question about North Koreans being kept in what a reporter described as a “network of gulags,” President Trump said those people are some of today’s “great winners.”
North Korea has 100,000 people in its prison camps. When reporters brought that fact up, Trump said “I think I helped them:”
‘Trump: “I may stand before you in 6 months and say, ‘Hey, I was wrong.”‘
The American president told the press repeatedly that Kim Jong Un was “very talented” plus a “great negotiator,” according to TIME. Then, Trump said he trusted the dictator to denuclearize – even though North Korean dictators have repeatedly broken their promises to previous presidents.
Trump ended the press conference on this note:
‘I don’t have to verify, I have one of the great memories of all time.’
He ended with:
‘I’ve got one of the greatest memories of all time,” says President Trumps as he winds up his briefing after the #TrumpKimSummit.
