Donald Trump wants his military parade. He suggested a big Fourth of July event in Washington, D.C. with fireworks, but really it’s all about his parade. Now that POTUS has gotten rid of almost all of his grounded advisers, he feels free to float his ideas, but Washington already has the big Fourth of July with fireworks and all. That is the domestic policy. His foreign policy news is just as ungrounded.
The president says his July 4th event will be branded “A Salute To America” featuring “your favorite President, me!:”
‘HOLD THE DATE! We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th. It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!’
This week, 45 heads out to a summit with North Korea’s president Kim Jong Un in Singapore. Hopefully, it will go better than the last one, without “progress made.” To hedge his bets, Trump has been talking up China’s economic talks, but promised “denuclearization?” with Kim Jon Un:
‘Very productive talks yesterday with China on Trade. Will continue today! I will be leaving for Hanoi, Vietnam, early tomorrow for a Summit with Kim Jong Un of North Korea, where we both expect a continuation of the progress made at first Summit in Singapore. Denuclearization?’
Then in a rare move, Trump tied China’s President Xi to Kim Jon Un. Of course, the commander-in-chief had to throw in the new that he had been taking Russia, too about North Korea:
‘President Xi of China has been very helpful in his support of my meeting with Kim Jong Un. The last thing China wants are large scale nuclear weapons right next door. Sanctions placed on the border by China and Russia have been very helpful. Great relationship with Chairman Kim!’
The country’s self-described “favorite president” noted that North Korea could become a “great economic power:”
‘Chairman Kim realizes, perhaps better than anyone else, that without nuclear weapons, his country could fast become one of the great economic powers anywhere in the World. Because of its location and people (and him), it has more potential for rapid growth than any other nation!’
