Trump casts doubt on June 12 summit with North Korean leader
President Donald Trump said Tuesday “There’s a very substantial chance that it won’t work out. That doesn’t mean that it won’t work out over a period of time, but it may not work out for June 12.” Sitting alongside him in the Oval Office was South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who flew to Washington to try and save the historic summit between Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un after a change in tone from North Korea. Last week, Pyongyang condemned joint US-South Korea military exercises and threatened to pull out of the Trump summit if the US continues to call for nuclear abandonment. Talking to reporters on Tuesday, Trump suggested that the change in tone followed Kim’s second meeting with the Chinese president in Beijing. Nonetheless, the US president held out this incentive to the North Korean leader: “I guarantee Kim’s safety if a deal is reached.” This statement refuted a suggestion made by national security adviser John Bolton, much resented in Pyongyang, that the Korean denuclearization pattern follow the Libyan model

Trump, you must try to meet with Kim Jong-un, or at least delegate Gina Haspel to deal with him.
Best location is Guantanamo, but a nice graveside plastic wreath would be appreciated too.
As if Kim had options. Let him play while he can…
Trumpie couldn’t negotiate himself out of a wet paper bag. He will get played like a bass fiddle and blow it. He is just looking for excuses to meet with Kim.
And you could do better than Trump yourself GREG ?
Kim isn’t stupid. He has learnt to play Trump.
well i think hes one of the best con men out there hes always played us he maybe buying time to move all his missels out of the country where inspectors wont find them but i think in the end that Trump will play him Trumps been playing the game a lot longer than Kim
