Michael Cohen sat for an 8-hour testimony on Wednesday, unveiling some serious legal claims against the president of the United States. And while Cohen was further tarnishing Trump’s already soiled reputation here in the states, Donald was in Vietnam, making a fool of himself on the world stage.
Trump went to Vietnam for a summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong un. Once there, the president was going to try to compromise a nuclear deal with the ruthless dictator that he considers a friend of his. That, however, didn’t quite play out as Trump expected, and he ended up cutting the trip short with no deal in sight.
Now, Nancy Pelosi is rubbing it in hard that Trump was a giant failure. She said this in a press conference on Capitol Hill:
“He was the big winner, Kim Jong Un, in getting to sit face-to-face with the most powerful person in the world, the president of the United States, And really it’s good that the president did not give him anything for the little that [Kim] was proposing.”
According to Trump, Kim requested that he lift all sanctions in place against North Korea, but offered no promise in return. Basically, Kim did what anyone would do when dealing with an unfit person, he saw how far he could take it.
Trump said in Hanoi:
“Sometimes you have to walk. This was just one of those times.”
Pelosi continued to bring to light the president’s ineptitude. She added:
“I guess it took two meetings for him to realize that Kim Jong Un is not on the level.”
“What we want is denuclearization. They didn’t agree to it in the first meeting, they didn’t agree to it in the second meeting, and, as you know, they wanted lifting sanctions without the denuclearization. I’m glad that the president walked away from that.”
The esteemed Speaker of the House finished with this:
“The president has believed Putin as opposed to believing his own intelligence leadership.”
“So, again, I didn’t know the president had said that, but it’s strange. And I don’t know — there’s something wrong with Putin, Kim Jong Un, in my view, thugs, that the president chooses to believe.”
