    Based on what trump said, from his perspective it is a simple question "Who is going to be the US partner\developer of all that 1550 miles ocean front property in NK?"

    There is high probability that during the private one-on-one between Jung-un and DT, trump went into a sales pitch of turning NK's shoreline into the playground for the world's rich and famous. Thus making NK a economic super power.

    ....And of course Trump Inc, would NK's partner on all resorts and land development, with the US providing military security. Who better to partner with than the US president who has connections and military support behind him.

    Good observation.

    In the meantime the Trump family is raking in the money; Ivanka and Kussner raked in 87 million dollars; Mr Bolton gave a speech for the Ukrainians for $ 115,000 etc. While Trump himself keeps raking in the money via his enterprises as well his hotel in Washington even when it is not allowed; that is how solid our laws are. Trump never had it so good; spending millions of taxpayer money for his useless rally's and trips and raking in the dough. Just like in any dictatorship. Yes, an lawless banana republic without the rule of law for the rich and powerful.

    Trump salutes a NK general. Republicans decried Obama for bowing to a Saudi King.

    Actually surprised Trump would do that. Un must have given his consent for a Trump tower on a NK waterfront somewhere. I wonder how veterans who fought in Korea feel about this? My wife's relatives want their brother's remains returned to them, while our dear leader is making deals.

    After the Southern and Northern walls are built... We will be great again. Is Mexico paying for one and Canada the other ? Nope.

    We know that he will claim 100% victory on the wall even if nothing changes. Who knows what BS story he will use. He may claim that the tariffs are paying for the wall. Tariffs are paid by US companies on imported goods. Trump tries to convince people that tariffs paid by other countries. BTW, tariffs would be paying for wall that never gets built anyway, thus the wall exists strictly in the mind of DT and his base.

    When the truth is - we perpetually keep you afraid with ignorant rhetoric and then provide something you can symbolically hide behind. Con man 101.

    Things you should worry about like health care and financial matters... no time, money for those things. Hmmmm

    Human remains returned to Hawaii and received by our vice president with pomp and circumstance.

    Definition of pomp and circumstance

    : impressive formal activities or ceremonies

    American flags draped small boxes (coffins)

    Pieces or fragments of supposed human remains, included in the items returned by NK is one set of dog tags, where are all the others?

    "Dog tag" is an informal but common term for the type of identification tag worn by military personnel. The tags are primarily used for the identification of dead and wounded soldiers; they have personal information about the soldiers and convey essential basic medical information, such as blood type[1] and history of inoculations. The tags often indicate religious preference as well. Dog tags are usually fabricated from a corrosion-resistant metal. They commonly contain two copies of the information, either in the form of a single tag that can be broken in half or two identical tags on the same chain. This duplication allows one tag (or half-tag) to be collected from a soldier's body for notification and the second to remain with the corpse when battle conditions prevent it from being immediately recovered.

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_tag

    The remains will take years, even decades to identify, if in fact that they really are human remains. The pomp and circumstance will be for naught if the pieces and fragments are not really human remains. If they are not human remains, NK leadership is probably laughing their asses off knowing that they fooled the fools of the ceremony and military honor.

    What if those boxes contained just dirt and petrified bones of animals? We will have been made out to be fools. Another dog and pony show for nothing. I told my wife, to tell her mother not to get their hopes up that their relatives remains finally made it home.

    Yes, all of this does not change anything at all; N.K. just continues to built their missiles and nukes. A few bones does not change history. We fought "communism" while our present leader now is a cheer leader for it ; all these soldiers died for nothing.

    And NK isn't giving in to Trumpism yet. The meeting was a dog and pony show.
