North Korea will denuclearize, President Trump declared in an exclusive interview with ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos just hours after intense and historic negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Stephanopoulos asked how Trump could trust the brutal dictator.

“I do trust him, yeah,” Trump said. “Maybe in a year you’ll be interviewing and I’ll say I made a mistake. It’s possible. We’re dealing at a high level, a lot of things can change a lot of things are possible.”

He pressed the president on his previous criticism of North Korea’s human rights abuses including starving his people, running labor camps and assassinating members of his own family.

“George, I’m given what I’m given,” Trump said. “This is what we have, this is where we are, and I can only tell you from my experience, and I’ve met him, I’ve spoken with him. I’ve met him. And this is, this has started early and it’s been very intense. I think that he really wants to do a great job for North Korea. I think he wants to de-nuke, without that, there’s nothing to discuss. It was on the table from the beginning, and you see a total denuclearization of North Korea – so important.”

Trump talked about the agreements that were reached at the summit in Singapore today, saying that he believes the North Korean leader “wants to do the right thing”.

“We have the framework for getting ready to denuclearize,” Trump said. “He’s de-nuking the whole place. I think he’s going to start now.”

Trump seemed to hold an optimistic take on Kim’s intentions, saying that the dictator “really wants to do something I think terrific for their country.”

So to be clear Trump TRUSTS the man who starved and murdered his own people, and did NOT trust the longtime American allies that gathered for the G7. 

It should also be pointed out that in the past North Korea has actually signed on to much more comprehensive agreements than this, and then reneged on the whole thing. 

In the meantime, Kim Jong Un has scored a public relations coup that will pay huge dividends back at home and with his neighbors in South Korea. Not to mention how it will play in China. 

Unlike some folks I do not have a whole lot of hope that anything of value to the United States was accomplished here, however, I hope that I am wrong about that.

P.S. I really doubt I am wrong about that. 

Update: Apparently Trump’s comments about his deal with Kim Jong Un has confused the shit out of the Pentagon.

Courtesy of Raw Story:

President Donald Trump seemed to suggest that he would be suspending all joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea early on Tuesday — much to the surprise of both countries’ militaries.

CNN Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr told the network on Tuesday that the Department of Defense at the moment isn’t sure what its orders are right now with regards to joint military exercises in South Korea.

“Here at the Pentagon, what they’re telling us is, they will be in line with as soon as they figure out what, exactly, he’s talking about,” she said. “He gave very broad language. So let’s step back a minute. There are, on a steady state, about 28,000 U.S. troops in South Korea. But they are there solely for the defense of South Korea. And these training exercises — the president calls them ‘war games’ — are for the defense of South Korea.”

Starr went on to note that there’s a joint military exercise between the two countries that is scheduled for August, which she noted is just a few weeks away.

“So what the Pentagon has to figure out is, what does the president really want to happen?” she asked. “Does he want an immediate, total cessation, no more training exercises? What will those 28,000 troops in South Korea do now?”

Trump’s not exactly a detail oriented person now, is he?

    ““We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out.” With respect to Bush’s team, when it comes to creating new realities through ceaseless action, they were rank amateurs compared to Donald Trump.” So NOW>”“terrific relationship” and what an “honor” it was to meet the dictator. ” tot “rump admitted that in six months he may find out he was wrong about Kim. “I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that,” he said. “I’ll find some kind of excuse.”

    OT…

    DAILY MAIL HAS THE SCOOP!

    “Track Palin loses bid to ban media from covering his assault case just days before he heads to trial for ‘breaking into his childhood home and attacking his dad Todd at Christmas’

    Track Palin lost a motion to ban the media from attending his upcoming criminal trial but a judge has ruled that videos and camera phones will be banned
    The case is currently Anchorage’s Veterans Court, after being transferred out of the Palmer County Court, with Judge David Wallace presiding over the trial
    Judge Wallace was appointed to the bench by Sarah Palin during her time as governor of Alaska
    Track, 29, will have to enter a plea of not guilty or no contest to at least one charge, but get mental treatment rather than prison
    He was charged with burglary and assault after allegedly breaking in and beating his father before Christmas, with the assault charge later dropped

    Gryphen – if you or any commenters here are interested, there is a detailed story about this at cbcnews.ca, trump, the great “deal maker”, lets Kim walk away with all the spoils in Singapore. The “stable genius”, aka, “great deal-maker”, made MAJOR concessions, while Kim made NONE!! Even South Korean President Moon was shocked and embarrassed, since his country was NEVER consulted about ANY possible U.S. concession(s), mainly, U.S. forces stationed there! As predicted, the fat fuckin’ idiot gambled away the security of the U.S.!! But the most disgusting thing he said was that “this would have not have been possible without Otto Warmbier, the American college student who was caught, and subsequently tortured by Kim’s security personnel, then released to return home to die. What a despicable piece of shit, capitalizing on someone else’s misfortune, and making it all about himself! Ask his parents how they feel about your new-found “friend”, you treasonous fat fuck!!!

      ““Without Otto this would not have happened,” Trump told a news conference after the summit in Singapore.

      “Something happened from that day. It was a terrible thing, it was brutal, but a lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea.”

      “I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain.””

      “I believe it’s a rough situation over there, there’s no question about it, and we did discuss it today pretty strongly … at pretty good length, and we’ll be doing something on it,” “OK, thankUn

    America’s DOTARD for the world to see…

    “McCain’s first run for the presidency in 2000 captured the imagination of the public and the press, whom he wryly referred to as “my base.” His self-confident “maverick” persona appealed to a more secular, moderate constituency who like him, might be constitutionally opposed to the growing political alignment between the religious right and the Republican Party. “his “Straight Talk Express” through the GOP primaries with a no-holds-barred attack on Pat Robertson and Rev. Jerry Falwell. The two were conservative icons and leaders of the Christian Coalition and the Moral Majority.”
    “branded Robertson and Falwell “agents of intolerance” and “empire builders.” He charged that they used religion to subordinate the interests of working people. He said their religion served a business goal and accused them of shaming “our faith, our party, and our country.””Republican voters launched George W. Bush, the stalwart evangelical, on his path to a presidential victory in 2000 ” “McCain’s willingness to defend America as a “Christian nation” and his controversial choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, an enthusiastic standard bearer for the Christian right, as his running mate, signaled the electoral power of a less tolerant, more absolutist “VALUE$-based” politics.” “Fueled by highly engaged activists, interest groups and donors known as “policy demanders,” “He declared, “To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history.””

    littlerubio>”fter building his political career on the backs of LGBT people, using his religion to do all he could to marginalize them and block any civil rights advances, Rubio actually claimed that because LGBT people were slaughtered in Orlando’s Pulse massacre – a terror attack that was the deadliest anti-LGBT hate crime and at the time the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, he was being called to serve Floridians by flip-flopping on his promise to not run for re-election.” “Mr. Rubio, 39, presented himself on his Florida Statehouse Web site and in interviews as a Roman Catholic, bloggers and journalists have noted since his election that he regularly worships at an evangelical megachurch whose theology is plainly at odds with Catholic teaching.

    For much of the last decade, Mr. Rubio has attended Christ Fellowship with his wife and children. He “comes very regularly to worship service” at the church’s Palmetto Bay campus, said Eric Geiger, the executive pastor. According to Mr. Rubio’s campaign Web site, he contributed almost $50,000 to Christ Fellowship from 2005 to 2008.”

    trump is absolutely disgusting, again his ego drives his foreign “policy”, which appears to be slam our allies and kiss up to dictators. He got nothing from this summit and Kim got a lot, including making trump look like a fool, but trump will never admit it.

    He just threw South Korea under the bus for a photo op with a psychopath, but then it takes one to know one.
