Trump jokes he wants 'my people' to 'sit up at attention'

Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins discusses this.

An "antsy and bored" Donald Trump reportedly attempted to bring his summit with Kim Jong-un of North Korea forward by a day, asking aides after his arrival in Singapore on Sunday: "We're here now". "I sometimes say the Denuking of North Korea, and those are attractive words", Trump said.

During the interview in which the president gave himself high marks for a summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the president raised eyebrows when he seemed to dismiss the strongman's record on human rights. If we did, millions of people would have been killed.

He's a tough guy.

"Chuck Schumer said 'the Summit was what the Texans call all cattle and no hat.' Thank you Chuck, but are you sure you got that right?", Trump wrote on the social messaging site. "And I mean he's the strong head. He's a amusing guy, he's very smart". He's a great negotiator. I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement.

So the Fox News host, Bret Baier, comes out and outright says, "Kim Jong Un is a killer". "He's the head of a country". One had been sentenced in April 2016 to 10 years in prison with hard labor after being convicted of espionage. And secondly, and this is a much more minor point, but one in 10,000, that's not rare. But when Hitler's Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, Churchill leaped to support Stalin's USSR and explained if Hitler invaded Hell, I would make at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.

"Our definition of denuclearization is they give up all their fissile material, facilities, nuclear material taken out, irrevocably and verifiably", says Jung Pak, top Korea expert at the Brookings Institution and a former senior CIA Korea analyst.

Earlier Sunday, South Korean news agency Yonhap reported that South Korea and the US are expected to announce the suspension of "large-scale" military drills this week, with the provision that they would restart if North Korea failed to keep its promise to denuclearize. And money - especially the way Trump thinks the rest of the world takes advantage of the USA - was a theme the United States president returned to repeatedly in the post-summit press conference. Don't you think maybe he would be taking care of his own people instead of slaughtering them? No. "Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience".

"I call them war games". But what did Americans think happened? And we know that because of what he does to his people there at home.

The poll also found Trump's overall approval rating at 43%, a marked improvement from the end of 2017, when polls regularly found him at historically low levels of approval.
