Trump tells America to “sleep well” as North Korean nuclear threat is over, but is it?

To be completely honest I did not have any sleepless nights worrying about North Korean nukes.

I think Kim Jong Un exaggerated the shit out of North Korea’s nuclear capabilities. 

But did Trump’s ridiculous little photo-op really make any and all potential threats go away? 

Hell, no.

Courtesy of CNN:

After nearly five hours of unprecedented talks between Trump and Kim on Tuesday, the two leaders signed a document in which Kim “reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula” and the US agreed to “provide security guarantees.”

However, there was no mention of the previous US aim of “complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization” from Pyongyang. Kim’s commitments did not appear to go beyond what he already pledged to do in April when he met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in along their countries’ border.

Following the summit, Trump told reporters during a news conference in Singapore that Kim agreed to “destroying a major missile engine testing site” and that it would be done “very soon,” without elaborating further on which testing site or timing.

The President also added that North Korea’s promise to complete denuclearization “will be verified,” though the document the two leaders signed did not lay out details of that process.

Trump left the discussions assured that Kim would begin dismantling his country’s missile sites in the immediate future, telling ABC News that Kim “trusts me, and I trust him.”

Yeah, trust is great. However, without tools to verify that the North Koreans are doing what they said they would do, it does not mean shit.

In fact, there is no guarantee that Trump and Kim Jong Un even agree on what “denuclearization” means:

There also was no sign that the two sides had narrowed the contradiction in their positions about what denuclearization actually means.

The US says it’s self-explanatory — Pyongyang must get rid of its nukes. But the North Koreans define the concept as the disappearance of America’s nuclear umbrella that protects South Korea.

The summit statement also appeared to fall short of previous declarations by the United States and North Korea, inked under the regimes of Kim’s grandfather Kim Il Sung and father Kim Jong Il.

In short, I do not think that America is really in any more or less danger of a nuclear attack from North Korea than it was before this “summit.”

However Kim Jong Un has just been handed the legitimacy of meeting a sitting US president, an achievement denied his father and grandfather. 

He will also likely get sanctions against his country lifted, without really doing anything, and he now has the standing to deal with the big boys at the international table. 

And then there are the military exercises. 

Here, let Rachel Maddow explain who really wanted those to stop.

Here’s more.

Great negotiator my ass!

And all of this reporting on how weak of a deal this was has really pissed off a certain orange tinted patsy.

Yeah, you keep telling yourself that.

    Only gullible low IQ cult Republicans believe anything Trump claims. The rest of us, the intelligent folks, see right through it.
    Republicans need their own planet. Sociopathy, cretinism, ignorance, intolerance, racism, fascism etc. could all be encapsulated
    in some type of gravitational well. It should be called something like Uranus.

    Republicans of ordinary means (and less than ordinary) are basically the people of Walmart.
    They will never get ‘better’ and they are gullible every which way.They are the one who believe Trump.
    Trump is a person of Walmart who was born with a golden spoon.

    I didn’t lose sleep over NK nukes either, but I still won’t sleep at night because trump is still in the WH.

    I am sure they got along just fine, in fact they are exactly alike, what was the first thing trump tweeted after the meeting : our biggest enemy is the press. I am sure Kim and trump can sit down and compare notes, Kim can give him pointers on eliminating the press and how to set up concentration camps.

    While trump is singing the praises of tough guy Kim, Canada has been busy.

    by the way, does ignorant trump think dotard is some kind of compliment or Korean title like a duke?

    Canadian Parliament Votes Unanimously To Condemn Trump

    O, Canada!

    These are fighting words from our neighbor to the north. This is a real headline. Something this insane would have been unthinkable, or hilarious, until very recently. Our staunchest and oldest ally has voted to condemn the clownish buffoon who occupies the Oval Office thanks to Vova Putin.

    Canada’s House of Commons on Monday unanimously condemned President Trumpand his aides on for attacks targeting the country’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    Lawmakers approved a motion that rejected “disparaging ad hominem statements by U.S. officials which do a disservice to bilateral relations,” Reuters reported.

    The symbolic move came after Peter Navarro, the White House National Trade Council director said there is a “special place in hell” for any leader who engages in bad faith diplomacy with Trump.

    For some reason Navarro decided this wasn’t the best idea after all and apologized. I guess Canada is not accepting it! But hey, it looked good for Kim, right? As someone on Twitter said- “how stupid do you have to be to piss off Canada?”

    Does Trump keep me up at night? No, I’ve always been a “no fear” kind of gal and go about my business. What bothers me is the media not calling him out on stuff that they KNOW are lies, and a complicit congress that sits back and lets him do it. Yes, I am speaking of democrats as well. How many constitutional violations do you need? Forget the midterms as well. There are very few who actually work for us; they just want their foot in the door and will say anything to get there.

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I am still in shock from the speech he gave after the summit,

    The scary part is if any other president had made those remarks he would have been hauled off to the looney bin. Instead we have trump hanging with the dictators.

    tinydjt>”“One of the things that really I’m happy is that the soldiers that died in Korea, their remains are going to be coming back home,” Trump said. “And we have thousands of people that have asked for that — thousands and thousands of people.””“So many people asked when I was on the campaign,” Trump said. “I’d say, ‘wait a minute, I don’t have any relationship’ — but they said, ‘when you can, president, we’d love our son to be brought back home’ — you know, the remains.”
    ” it’s not inconceivable that a 99-year-old parent of a fallen Korean War veteran might have approached Trump during the campaign. But note that Trump claimed multiple parents approached him to say, “we’d love our son to be brought back home.”
