The summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un fell apart Thursday when it seems both parties failed to reach an agreement deal over the issue of sanctions relief.
Watch the reactions of the media and Democrats and then remember, or study history if you are not old enough, the reactions of those same groups when Reagan walked away at Reykjavik. Still, think it’s just Trump?
“I am always prepared to walk,” Trump told reporters. “I am never afraid to walk from a deal. I’d much rather do it right than do it fast. We’re in position to do something very special” the president said.
The media reactions will be that the “dealmaker” does not know how to make a deal and isn’t diplomatic enough to agree. They will label Trump a failure, the same as was done to Reagan. Different men but the same type of Democrats and media.
Here’s the deal. Both leaders met and had a discussion, that’s the most positive move on both parties in 30 years.
Mr. Trump said that Mr. Kim was prepared to dismantle the North’s Yongbyon nuclear complex, the site of a reactor and plutonium-reprocessing facility, if sanctions were lifted. Mr. Trump said Washington wanted a deal to include other parts of the North’s nuclear program, including undeclared sites for producing highly enriched uranium.
“Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety and we couldn’t do that,” Mr. Trump said. “I just felt it wasn’t good enough,” Mr. Trump said of the Yongbyon offer. “We had to have more.” […]
Earlier, Mr. Trump told reporters that he wasn’t in a hurry to reach a deal as long as North Korea didn’t conduct nuclear and missile tests, and asserted he was optimistic that an accord to denuclearize the peninsula would eventually come.
In front of the cameras earlier in the day, the two leaders appeared friendly, exchanging pleasantries, with Mr. Trump predicting that “no matter what happens, we’ll ultimately have a deal that’s really good for Chairman Kim and his country.” But he added: “It doesn’t mean we’re doing it in one day, in one meeting.”
Mr. Kim, too, had sounded an upbeat note. Asked by an American reporter if he was willing to denuclearize, Mr. Kim replied: “If I’m not willing to do that, I wouldn’t have come here.” (WSJ)
Kim tried the tactics that worked with previous presidents. You can’t blame him for trying. Unless he’s a fool (which I don’t think he is), he must now know for certain that Trump won’t cave. The only card remaining for him to play a military confrontation with the most powerful country in the world. He’ll have a lot to think about on that long train ride home.
