I guess that Trump handshake did not mean shit.

North Korean officials did not turn up to a Thursday meeting with the U.S. military about repatriating the remains of the war dead, according to a U.S. official with knowledge of the situation.
The two sides had been expected to meet at the Korean Peninsula’s demilitarized zone and discuss the return of U.S. troop remains from the 1950-1953 war — an arrangement the State Department had announced after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Pyongyang last Friday and Saturday.
On Thursday, however, Department of Defense and United Nations Command officials were left waiting in the DMZ’s Joint Security Area. The expected North Korean officials never arrived, according to the official who requested anonymity as he was not permitted to talk publicly about the event.
“We were ready,” the official said. “It just didn’t happen. They didn’t show.”
To save a little face Mike Pompeo suggested that they did not necessarily set a firm date, but then one would have to wonder why officials for both the Department of Defense and the UN Command would drop everything and show up?
The date is now supposedly set for July 15. Well, maybe.
There are also numerous news accounts stating that North Korea continues to work on their nuclear weapons program despite Trump’s assertion that he handled all of that.
But hey, Kim Jong Un did pass him a note during class.
A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea. Great progress being made! pic.twitter.com/6NI6AqL0xt

“Your Excellency Mr. President?”
Oh, Kim Jong really knows how to stroke this idiot’s ego, while doing absolutely nothing to deliver the goods.
In other words, Trump is about to buy Kim dinner and take him to the movies, and still walk home with a crippling case of blue balls.
