    What do think will be the results of a one day summit in Singapore?

    Mine:

    • trump will declare it the biggest\greatest deal in history. Something only he could do.
    • If trump makes any deals he likely will remove some or all of the sanctions
    • trump may also agree to withdrawal US troops from South Korea.
    • trump will declare Kim Jong-un a great leader.
    • There will be lots of photos

    Bottomline: The summit is about creating a unrealistic fictional narrative. Nothing will become of it, short term or long term other than what trump personally gains from it.

    The hunger games. N. Korea is literally hungry for A. Resources, B. Food, and C. Cash for "Rocket man" because why not ask for everything ?

    Potus is hungry for an accomplishment. That and some desperately needed attention.

    Yes, and I find it very interesting that he has been pushing this summit extremely aggressively. Normally trump plays extreme hardball like he did a few days ago at the G6 summit. So its a bit suspicious that trump is so eager and confident that this NK summit is going to be a huge win for him. Its a bit like knowing your team is going to sweep the World Series keeping the other team scoreless. Why is trump so confident that he will quickly\easily solve a 60 year problem in a single meeting?

    It won't be total because then they have nothing else to negotiate with. We will reduce or eliminate sanctions and send stuff. We will get some warheads but not an honest answer about how many more there are. Both sides will secretly agree to exploit this for their maximum benefits.

    In my view, it will only be a Photo op; nothing else. If people here still don't know what Trump is all about, then it shows how stupid this country is. His only objective is to get his ugly face in the news and be able to boast that he's been sent by God to save the planet; all the churches will praise him into heaven. Where is the barf bucket!

    I agree DT is addicted the "attention", positive or negative, like a heroin addict is to heroin; he needs a daily fix, and like heroin, each passing day requires a larger and larger dose of attention to get the same high. Imagine what massive daily dosage trump will demand 12 months from now, and what extremes he will go to get it.

    Take note, DT always goes for the type of attention that will give him the most media coverage. If a group\event\person is highly supportive, then he goes for the positives attention, if a group is anti-trump, he goes for the negative attention. Its all the same for him; the spot light is all the same to him, positive or negative.

    NPR is reflecting the same idea.

    trump and Kim are likely to conspire to create an illusion that great things will happen because its in both their personal self interest. Trump agrees to be supportive of a Kim Jung-un, and Kim Jung agrees to promote trump as the greatest leader in history of world. Privately they actaully do nothing; just shuffle the pieces around so that things look like progress is happening. However, no matter what appears to be happening Jong-un keeps his all his nukes, and trump makes false claims Jong-un is actively working hard to dismantle them. They both personally win, at least in the short term.

    No notes, no recordings, no documenting of the facts of any kind. Trump can feel free to make any personal deal he wants and lie about it.

    We can assume no matter what deal is agreed to by NK, trump will lie, and like fish stories he will be free to add to the story as much as he wants in the future. Hell, it has unlimited potential, DT could easily claim that NK was planning launching warheads on the US, but he talked them out of it. That is what is great about fiction, there is no limitations. Why tell truth, when lying give you many more options?

    They just signed an agreement, but have yet to say anything about the agreement.

    What in hell is up with that?

    Why wouldn't they make general statement as to what they agreed to?

    They both agreed to make each other "look good" nothing more. It’s a good show for Trumpy’s dumb supporters and gives Kim a bit of legitimacy he desperately wants and needs.

    What could go wrong? A win win for two of the worlds most dangerous and despicable people.

    Historic. The word "He" has spoken about 438 times this morning. Like Collusion. Shape your message. So far it's a whole lot of nothing. Probably cost millions to do what should have been done by telephone. Talk is cheap and empty promises cost nothing.

    Historic equals important - right ? I am the most important. The best ever. What did I accomplish ? Everything.

    T.J. exactly as I predicted; a dog and pony show, like you said it did cost a few million to get these pictures. Trump is the most wasteful president in history; he should get a medal for that.

    In 2015 I said the biggest thing Trump has going for him is charisma. Charisma has turned evil people into world changing dictators . George Stephanopoulos was talking to Trump this morning . Trump said he would invite Kim Jong Un to the whitehouse and last week he was calling Trudeaux weak and dishonest.

    Talking about Trudeau Trump said: "That's going to cost a lot of money for the people of Canada. He learned. You can't do that. You can't do that."

    Do what , offend Trump?

    I guess the people here have no clue of the world; Trump now boasts that he can built hotels on the beach in N. Korea; he said so, but the "news" did not mention that yet. In the mean time little kids are locked up in animal cages on our borders.

    Like I said so many times it is downhill with this country. They interviewed "Jordan" on TV; another piece of Trump filth who approves this Hitler tactic.

    By the way Chet , Canada will prevail, not the US. All they have to do is shut the "tar sands" Keystone oil pipeline.
