It was bound to happen. Eventually, Donald Trump would have to acknowledge that things are not going according to plan when the proof is everywhere, although he generally just sticks to gaslighting when that happens. This time, though, there’s no way around it. He would either have to admit that his grand, Nobel Peace Prize-winning meeting with North Korean Kim Jong Un was a disaster since there has been not one bit of progress made despite a signed agreement between the two, or look like even more of a fool than he already did.
The country has once again come full circle under Donald Trump. From the days of threatening “Little Rocket Man” to the all-out love fest between the two has now resulted in…more threats against North Korea. Trump may still (astonishingly) tout his “warm relationship” with a man who kills and starves his people, but promising that joint exercises between the U.S. and South Korean military will be “far bigger than before” boils down to yet another threat because Trump isn’t getting his way and is now exposed as the inexperienced, bumbling reality TV game show host he always was.
It’s almost as if this could have been predicted. Was there no one who maybe could have seen this coming, anyone who could have warned Trump that North Korea has made similar promises and backed out before, someone with any history or experience in foreign policy with the embattled country bent on world domination. Wasn’t there anyone like that?
Of course there was. President Obama tried to warn Trump, as did every former government official who ever tried to make deals with North Korea in the past. His hubris and ignorance guided him right into this current mess, and it’s all come full circle yet again.
Twitter made sure Trump heard their “told you so.” Read some of their comments below:
