    That's what proper news is, who cares about his cavorting with tarts? This is something that impacts SE Asia and the proliferation of nuclear weapons in the region, jumping into bed with a pneumatic blonde in the past is of interest only to the Democrats. And the wife.

    The first good thing he did was to out China as pivotal sponsors of NK and denouncing their role in propping up the regime behind the scenes. Everyone always knew that was the case but previous politicians never saw fit to go public about it for sake of diplomacy and fearing the consequences. Trump came in and tossed that to the wind and went after chinese businesses in the US trading with NK. At some point, the chinese started to feel the pinch and became at least more vocal about enforcing sanctions. Trump made it public they weren't and actively pressed for that to happen.

    Secondly, he stood up to the name-calling and gave it back with interest in a way no previous president would have. For that Trump was mocked by his enemies but he is not in the business of diplomacy, just business. After all, all past diplomacy had only gone on to deliver ever more powerful weapons to NK. It was Trump's brand of diplomacy that pried them out of the shell.

    In summary, he has obviously taken the right course of action all along. In a way that no conventional politician would have, well done. Credit where it's due and all that. He didn't inherit much to go on and within this short space he has done the unthinkable. A really positive step for the world, while we wait for Mueller's incriminating evidence of some type.

    It's going to be something, that meeting.

    I'm not sure his 'calling out China' really achievedmuch, it was a pretty open secret that they have been playing fast and loose with the sanctions.

    Trump hasn't done anything. All he has actually done is send a few Tweets. And this meeting with N Korea could go horrible wrong. Diplomacy is about softly softly and talking under the radar, getting agreement, then the leaders simply smile for the camera, shake hands, sign a piece of paper and pretend they did all the hard work.

    This could be a disaster and could be an attempt by N Korea to play Trump buy making him say or do the wrong thing in front of the world's press. It is also worth pointing out the Kim Jong Un has never been outside N Korea. In fact many N Koreans haven't. They also have no diplomatic expertise in the country. The US does have diplomatic experience of N Korea, but none of those experts are close to the White House. He is effectively going in blind. Also - where is this meeting going to be held? I am not really sure there are than many countries that would either accommodate such talks or be seen as sufficiently neutral.

    It all feels like a rushed bluster of rhetoric playing right into the hands of folks like yourself.
