Trump agrees to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

The White House said Thursday night that President Donald Trump had accepted an invitation to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un extended in a letter delivered by a senior South Korean official. The face to face meeting, which American officials said would take place within the next “couple of months” at a location yet to be determined, comes after more than six decades of confrontation and North Korea’s development of nuclear and missile programs and international sanctions against the authoritarian regime. “At this point we are not even talking about negotiations,” a senior US official said, stressing that the US’s ultimate goal was complete denuclearization by North Korea, subject to stringent verification.

    If President Trump can establish peace with “Rocket Man”, he will go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents we ever had! MAGA!

    Denuclearizing North Korea is on table, what do Kim want in return? Hopefully it’s for the North Korean ruling elite of senior military and government officials, their families, to be accommodated by a safe haven nation, particularly if accompanied by a few billion dollars for care and feeding.
