Before traveling to Annapolis Friday morning to speak at the commencement ceremony for the U.S. Naval Academy, President Trump said the summit with North Korea could still happen June 12.
Well see what happens. Were talking to them now. It was a very nice statement they put out. Well see what happens," Trump said. Well see what happens. It could even be the 12th. Were talking to them now. They very much want to do it. Wed like to do it. Were going to see what happens.
Everybody plays games. You know that better than anybody, he continued when asked about whether North Korea is playing games.
The statement comes just 24 hours after President Trump cancelled the summit, after a threat of nuclear war from the regime and radio silence on handling logistical issues, in a direct letter to dictator Kim Jong Un. In response, North Korea issued a statement saying they are still interested in coming to the table.
"As far as the historic DPRK-US summit is concerned, we have inwardly highly appreciated President Trump for having made the bold decision, which any other US presidents dared not, and made efforts for such a crucial event as the summit," the regime issued to North Korean state run media Friday morning. "His sudden and unilateral announcement to cancel the summit is something unexpected to us and we can not but feel great regret for it."
"We remain unchanged in our goal and will to do everything we could for peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and humankind, and we, broad-minded and open all the time, have the willingness to offer the US side time and opportunity," the statement continues. "The first meeting would not solve all, but solving even one at a time in a phased way would make the relations get better rather than making them get worse. The US should ponder over it. We would like to make known to the US side once again that we have the intent to sit with the US side to solve problem regardless of ways at any time."
Very good news to receive the warm and productive statement from North Korea. We will soon see where it will lead, hopefully to long and enduring prosperity and peace. Only time (and talent) will tell! Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2018
Notice how everyone is ignoring you?
The work ethic, and intelligent mindset of Trump is due to his businessman background.
There is no comparison between businessmen and politicians, the former are superior in every conceivable way
You went and ruined it with FDR. That Marxist slime was a Marxist slime. (Pardon my redundancy)
Everybody plays games. You know that better than anybody,
Was that not awesome, or what?
“Are you not entertained?”
This level of openness during an international negotiation is unheard of in PC culture, and gives President Trump even more leverage because the other negotiators know he is talking to a very wide audience.
FDR has to be included, not because he was the “New Deal” Socialist Democrat, but because he led this nation to victory in Europe and Japan during WWII when many Americans wanted nothing to do with foreign wars. Winston Churchill & Franklin Delano Roosevelt saved the world from Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, and preserved freedom and democracy.
He knew Pearl Harbor was going to get bombed. He didnt tell the military. He was a scumbag. Where ya been?
Okay, mark on calendar, welcome Kim Jung Un to your new home in Palm Springs and you won’t miss Pyongyang even a little bit. Be sure to try the mushroom soup, there isn’t even a hint of bark.
I’m confused...Fox reads “Live” and the panel is discussing the summit being canceled and how it may never happen or not for months.. Is it off again? Or is “Live” not “Live”?
Within the last 48 hours he has firmly put the Reds back in their box and reassumed the role of the Primary Alpha.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Never play poker with PDJT. He always has a full house.
He just raised and called. The next ante will be very high.
This has the Left’s talking heads exploding.I love it!
Is that in Texas? Dude! Excellent photo.
Long, long time ago. Remembering that it was the SAC General back in the Kelly Johnson days at Lockheed (SR-71) that picked that slogan.
General Curtis LeMay. He didn’t mess around.
Agreed. Reagan was great. But in terms of negotiating, Trump developed his skills over a lifetime of cut-throat business dealings. You can’t buy the kind of knowledge that comes from that. Also, things were in some ways simpler in Reagan’s time, although equally consequential. There was one major adversary. The level of multi-tasking needed in addressing today’s challenges is beyond anything that was required in Reagan’s time.
Here, here! Woke up that morning, found out that Trump won, and thanked God we still had a republic.
I think we will have that whole slogan rejuvenated. About time.No LeMay did what was necessary, and he did it quickly, subsequently earning the never ending disrespect of leftists and commies everywhere.He was a Great man.Right up there with Chesty Puller IMHO.
When your holding a Royal flush in spades, you don’t have to worry about anyone else’s bluffs and bluster....
Every few years the American Government switches to “Betray” mode.
That’s got to affect foreign policy negotiatons.
