    It was hard to understand the purpose of the North Korea meeting in the first place. Every expert around said that Kim Sung Un would NEVER give up his nuclear capability. But Trump went to Hanoi anyway, with seemingly no plan to guide him in negotiations other than his gut. It is good that his gut told him finally that he was not going to be able to charm Kim Sung Un into making major concessions -- never. Perhaps some modest concessions in return for the removal of sanctions. But in the end, he could not strike a small deal or the big deal he sought that would get him and Kim the Nobel Peace Prize.

    On the other hand, Kim Sung Un got the photo ops and Trump's admission that Kim Sung Un was not involved in the torture and death of American Otto Wambier. From the Washington Examiner:

    "Talking in Vietnam on Thursday about Kim's role in the fate of Warmbier, who died in June 2017, Trump said: "He felt badly about it. He felt very badly." He added that the two leaders had discussed Warmbier’s death privately. He added: "He tells me that he didn't know about it and I will take him at his word.""

    Trump walked away from any deal, and in this case, "no deal" could be construed as a victory for America because most political experts were highly worried that the ill prepared Trump would be talked into something bad for America.

    It is also fitting that the North Korea version of the reasons for the failure of the summit were different from that of Trump and his staff. Who should we believe? Honestly?

    And he can wear that gear at his military parade on the 4th of July. Maybe he'll invite Kim Jung Un to the parade and they can ride together waving at the crowd.

    Coincidence? Sergei Lavrov . the Russian Foreign Minister happened to be in Hanoi at the same time as Trump. It was on the "news" but, no reactions at all. I believe Trump and him met there in secret. I hope the CIA did their work.

    According to this morning's Washington Post, President Trump said holding a hearing with Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer and fixer, while he was overseas was “perhaps a new low in American politics.”

    True to form, he is blaming everyone but himself for the failure of the talks.

    I guess these two "buddies" had no time to discuss "nukes" as this picture shows:

    I am looking forward to the day that a thread title is "Trump finally arrested and indicted and convicted"

    I might do a dance holding signage on one of my downtown streets and post the video on youtube.

    Since this thread is about North Korea and Trump's failed summit with Kim Jung Un in Vietnam, the latest news is that the Treasury Department announced new sanctions on North Korea this morning. And then this afternoon, Trump reversed those sanctions with a Tweet, surprising his own aides and cabinet.

    From Politico: Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders explaining Trump's reversal said, "President Trump likes Chairman Kim and he doesn’t think these sanctions will be necessary."

    I suppose Trump was following his gut again. From the Politico article, "Mark Dubowitz, an influential critic of the Iran nuclear deal who is chief executive of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, tweeted, "I’ve been working on sanctions policy for 15+ years. Don’t recall ever seeing a president overrule a Treasury announcement AFTER it was announced."

    There are lots of "firsts" when it comes to Trump actions.

    Schmidt forget it; this country is going down the drain in an hurry as long as he stays on; Kim is having an party right now with Russian Vodka. As is Iran, Syria, Iraq who will become buddies to teach Israel a few lessons.
