I know, right? Trouble is I'm pretty sure the MSM has signed a pledge in blood to not report anything positive regarding Trump. There may not be time to get clearance from ... whoever they get clearance from, for permission to report some actual news.

Me too. And I understand and share your misgivings. But, Kim has done several things showing good faith, maybe China is coercing him. I've had some trepidation over Trumps trip, my mind playing out scenarios where the bad guys take out Trump.

Just gotta hope for the best and plan for the worst I guess.

So, no matter what the President does, you're going to say it's bad and call the guy a piece of shit. Virtually everything is better for us since he took office, but you'll never give him credit for any good thing he ever does because he's not a Democrat.

LOL! Welcome to Obama's world of the last eight years!
What a hypocrite

No it is not better. Our allies can't trust us. Trump pulled out of the Iran Deal which is going to make that region more dangerous, and for no good reason except that it had Obama's name on it.

Try getting NK to give up its nukes now.

Obama had Bin Laden taken out and raised fuel efficiency standard for automobiles. Both good. So if you break the rules and call me a hypocrite, I can call you a douchebag and complete moron right? No? If not I won't do it.

Nice start. I think I will add to your list.

Obama also brought us out of a recession.
The Iran Deal was a start and was meant to be improved on, not torn apart.
Also gave many people health care, which again, was meant to be a start, not finish.

"Douche bag"? You must be thinking of Trump.

Obamacare stinks, the Iran deal benefits only Iran, and the recession was ended by HUGELY increasing the Federal deficit. Face it, he's the worst president in history. Worse than even Carter.

The Iran Deal was a START!! It addressed the nuclear part of it, not anything else. That was hopefully going to be negotiated by the next president. Good luck with that one.

ObamaCare had flaws but once again it was a START! What part of that word don't you understand?

Obama is already going down as one of more popular presidents. Unlike President Carter, Obama was elected TWICE!!! heheheh.....

LOL! No, not "most everyone", Budwick. A meeting is only significant if both parties walk away satisfied. And we know that is not going to happen, no matter how badly you and Trump want to spin it.

Not anymore. The meeting went out the window along with Trump's Nobel Peace Prize.

It's clearly premature to be talking about giving anybody a Nobel Peace Prize [But then again, you are the one with the crystal ball.]

When Rocket Man comes to term with the reality that he can 1) Keep his regime without nuclear weapons or 2) Lose his regime - I think we might see the meeting rescheduled.

You must have been missing Trump's rallies, where the audience starts screaming "Nobel Peace Prize, Nobel Peace Prize......"

Kim is not about to give up his nukes so keep dreaming. He's much better at this game than Trump will ever be.

Kim has never needed to negotiate anything before. It's his way or death. The poor little dude doesn't know what he is in for. I almost feel sorry for him - NOT!

The "poor little dude" is not in for anything.

Trump is not about to strike NK no matter how hard he huffs and puffs. Things will go back to where they have always been.

Kim's already has a missile that can reach the United States, so his pledges never meant a damn thing in the first place.

And Trump's threatening tariffs on China? Not happening. Another big bluster from the master of gas bags.

I wonder if Donald Trump the private citizen was thinking about those 3 while coming down the escalator

I bet he was

a dollar for a paycheck
left behind a jet set life
attacked daily in all ways possible.... don't mean nothing
3 are free tonight

he's proably already thinking
how to turn the lights on in North Korea
first things first
gotta have a plan

I won’t hold my breath on possible outcomes. But damn. It’s been a long time since there was hope. The Berlin Wall did fall. Therefore anything’s possible.
