Imagine if Obama had solved this particular issue.
I didn’t think it was really a very big issue to begin with, but it was a thing that the media was talking about and it now appears that Trump has managed to solve it.
But the media is just acting as though it is a random happening.
North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has told South Korean envoys that he is willing to begin negotiations with the United States on abandoning its nuclear weapons and that it would suspend all nuclear and missile tests while engaged in such talks, South Korean officials said on Tuesday.
President Trump reacted with guarded optimism to the news, which potentially represented a major defusing of one of the world’s most tense confrontations.
During the envoys’ two-day visit to Pyongyang, the North’s capital, which ended on Tuesday, the two Koreas also agreed to hold a summit meeting between Mr. Kim and President Moon Jae-in of South Korea on the countries’ border in late April, Mr. Moon’s office said in a statement.
“The North Korean side clearly stated its willingness to denuclearize,” the statement said. “It made it clear that it would have no reason to keep nuclear weapons if the military threat to the North was eliminated and its security guaranteed.”
If the statement is corroborated by North Korea, it would be the first time Mr. Kim has indicated that his government is willing to discuss giving up nuclear weapons in return for security guarantees from the United States. Until now, North Korea has said its nuclear weapons were not for bargaining away.
There is no point at which the media is going to give Trump credit for anything. The people who like him will see his successes, but they already like him.
The only thing that people who hate him are going to notice is making more money.
No one actually gave a shit about North Korea or thought they were going to randomly nuke America. It was manufactured hysteria. It could be celebrated as a win, but it can also just be ignored.
Trump needs to focus on issues that either help America in a meaningful way, or on which he can bypass the media and prove a point directly to the people.
