Trump-Kim summit cut short without accord

The White House said Thursday that no deal was struck in the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. This was reported by press secretary Sarah Sanders. The two leaders departed the Metropole Hotel, where the talks unfolded, around 1:30 p.m. local time, roughly four-and-a-half hours after the talks began. The scheduled working lunch and a signing ceremony for an agreement were called off. Sanders said Trump would convene a news conference two hours earlier than planned.

    Looks like utterly no planning was made beforehand. Total waste of time and money.

    The fat murderous dictator, Kim Jong-un, knows what he has to do to change his country from what it is today – an open prison. The prisoner-nation all serve one man’s big ego. The Kims need to leave and their people allowed to live normal lives. The a-hole is playing the West and, like a child, he enjoys the attention. He now needs a certain kind of negative attention rather than the positive attention he has been receiving which has not produced any change in his sneaky and deadly ways.

    Give President Donald Trump his due…at least he has managed to get Kim Jong-un to enter into dialogue with a Western Superpower. This is something no-one else has been able to achieve. My message to President Trump is this: Don’t give up! You have been placed in this position by Almighty God for a reason, and you still have much work to do.

    So it would be interesting to know if expert agents tried to find a security flaw to kill Kim.
    A state train can be derailed and attacked using explosives delivered by a ground to ground missile.
    Why not killing him in his train?
