You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.
I felt a wonderful dialog was building up between you and me, and ultimately it is only that dialog that matters.
While this may read like an excerpt from Fifty Shades of Orange, Trump still informed Kim that the planned negotiations were “inappropriate” at this time. Which, despite Republican efforts to make both accepting and rejecting a meeting with Kim “the right decision” did leave those promoting Trump’s Nobel Prize in the lurch.
But not for long. Because apparently all Donald Trump was looking for was one signal from Kim that that what was “building up between” them was still here. As reflected in today’s White House pool report:
Trump: We’ll see what happens. It could even be the 12th. We’re talking to them now. They very much want to do it. We’d like to do it. We’re going to see what happens.
Reporter: Is North Korea just playing games?
Trump: Everybody plays games.
True to form, Donald Trump seems to be negotiating over nuclear weapons with the same care, and the same tactics, he used to stiff contractors for plumbing.
