Even in the face of renewed doubts over the sincerity of the North Korean regime’s denuclearization talk, it looks as though Donald Trump has knocked it out of the park once again.
Trump, we must remind ourselves, is not an ordinary, politically motivated President. Instead, he’s a citizen-first, prosperity minded populist leader who is ready to make things great again. And, in the meantime, it looks as though he’s going to take a crack at solving the world’s problems as well.
First up was North Korea – an unprecedented annoyance on the world stage over the course of the last six decades after dividing the Korean Peninsula into North and South, with the latter becoming a prosperous technological hotspot and the former turning despotic, poverty-ridden, and atomically antagonistic. Somehow, in a maneuver we may never understand the full scope of in this decade, Trump managed to muzzle the madman of Pyongyang in a matter of months, putting to end the sixty year Korean War and possibly freeing the North Korean people from the ridiculous regime in the process.
As Trump was preparing to meet his DPRK counterpart this week in Singapore, it was announced that the event would be over far sooner than realized, as the negotiation process moved along at an unexpected pace.
President Donald Trump plans to depart early from his unprecedented summit with Kim Jong-un, the White House said Monday, declaring that nuclear talks with North Korea have moved “more quickly than expected.”
Trump had been scheduled to fly back to Washington on Wednesday morning after spending Tuesday with the North Korean leader in Singapore. But on the eve of the summit, he altered his schedule, opting to return at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday after a full day of meetings with Kim — almost 15 hours earlier than anticipated.
“The discussions between the United States and North Korea are ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected,” the White House said in a statement.
It was not immediately clear what specific progress, if any, had been made in preliminary discussions between U.S. and North Korean officials in the run-up to the Tuesday summit. In fact, only hours before the White House announcement, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had seemed to lower expectations for the meeting, which Trump had earlier predicted could potentially yield an on-the-spot deal to end the Korean War.
So, to recap, President Trump the Russian Double Agent, (according to the democrats), just ended the Korean War and denuclearized North Korea within his first 18 months as President, all while being investigated by the Special Counsel and fending off constant attacks from the mainstream media.
Unless this is some sort of Russian ruse in which Vladimir Putin pressured Kim Jong Un to capitulate in order to make Trump look good, then there are some serious accolades in the offing for this most unlikely of Presidents.
