Trump Walks Out On North Korean Summit

Trump Walks Out On North Korean Summit

They say that breaking up is hard to do, but the “love affair” between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un may be over. Trump walked out of the two leaders’ second summit, as talks broke down between the two men in Hanoi.

According to Fox News, President Trump abruptly walked away from negotiations with North Korea in Vietnam and headed back to Washington on Thursday afternoon, saying the U.S. is unwilling to meet Kim Jong Un’s demand of lifting all sanctions on the rogue regime without first securing Kim’s meaningful commitment to denuclearization.

Trump, speaking in Hanoi, Vietnam, told reporters he had asked Kim to do more regarding his intentions to denuclearize, and “he was unprepared to do that.”

“Sometimes you have to walk,” Trump said at a solo press conference following the summit.

No Deal With North Korea

President Trump, “the dealmaker,” knows that sometimes “No Deal” is the best deal. The president specifically said negotiations fell through after Kim demanded a full removal of US-led international sanctions in exchange for the shuttering of their Yongbyon nuclear facility. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters that the United States wasn’t willing to make a deal without North Korea committing to giving up its secretive nuclear facilities outside Yongbyon, as well as its missile and warheads program.

“It was about the sanctions,” Trump said. “Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that. They were willing to de-nuke a large portion of the areas that we wanted, but we couldn’t give up all of the sanctions for that.”

“I’d much rather do it right than do it fast,” Trump added, echoing his remarks from earlier in the day when he insisted that “speed” was not important. “We’re in position to do something very special.”

Like the “ex-lovers” they may now be, both leaders’ motorcades roared away in opposite directions from the downtown Hanoi summit site after both lunch and the anticipated signing ceremony was abruptly canceled. Trump’s closing news conference was moved up, and he departed for Washington on Air Force One several hours ahead of the originally planned schedule.

While no deal was struck, the president said he trusted Kim’s promise that he would not resume nuclear and missile testing, but that the current US sanctions would stay in place.

Regardless of the shortened Summit and failure to leave with a deal in place, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders described the meetings between Trump and Kim as “very good and constructive.

    Apparently, the author has NO IDEA how to negotiate. “If you aren’t prepared to walk, you aren’t prepared to negotiate.”

    Only the naive or ignorant don’t understand this fundamental rule of negotiation.

    But “journalists” and politicians, who know so little, but believe they know everything are completely unaware of reality!

      How could Trump be so naive to assume that Kim would ever give up his „life insurance policy“?
      Trump just afforded Kim a very prominent place in world politics, which Kim can now excessively use internally, and got nothing in return – a result that was clearly foreseeable.

      Umm, I really believe you’ve got your right & left shoes on the wrong feet, cause you have just blown your case out of the water just like an above ground Muratoa Atoll ” nuclear ” explosion.

      D.J.T before he ever began thinking of running for President was, for more years than anyone can count, a consummate deal maker. Sure; he didn’t get a one-sided deal/agreement his way every time & he boomed & busted along the way. But at least President D.J.T. picked himself up, dusted himself off, moved on & successfully concluded more deals than he lost.
      KIM Jong Un is, like his sire & grand-sire before him a complete narcissist. Only concerned about his palatial, slothful comforts wherever he goes, AND, leaves nothing but a trail littered with destruction of the North Korean people behind him.

      It’s well & truly past time that an unknown/undiscovered N. K. faulty high powered nuclear missile suddenly exploded right in front of K J U’s dias containing him & his military generals of all high rank, in Pyongyang during one of their obscene hogwash militant parades. All gone in one fell swoop.

      Then the world would see the ordinary North Koreans rise up en masse, demolish the demilitarised zone, welcome with open arms the South Koreans & others who have the logistics to easily provide the massive humanitarian aid that has for so long sorely denied them by 3 generations of insane misfits who had no right to hold even the least of government office-bearers.

      Only then can the two ” Korea’s ” be united into one prosperous nation where personal freedoms & the ” Rule Of Law ” reigns for the benefit of all Koreans.

      Oh, BTW DON, I bet Larry Horist could gain a far better & fairer ” deal ” than you could, any day. So keep your offensive farts where they belong.

      The Great Negotiator comes back empty handed? Loser! The world laughs at him yet again. As for what was at stake: He says they wanted full sanctions lifted, they said “partial” sanctions lifted. Let’s see, hmm, who has more credibility? Is it Dumbald Trump or the North Korean dictatorship? I’ll go with the Koreans.

    Well… It may be more of who do you choose to believe.
    Trump said: “Mr. Kim had offered to dismantle the North’s most important nuclear facility if the United States lifted the harsh sanctions imposed on his nation — but would not commit to do the same for other elements of its weapons program.”
    North Korea’s foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho, contradicted Mr. Trump, saying: “That North had asked only for some sanctions to be lifted in exchange for “permanently and completely” dismantling the main facility in the presence of American experts”.
    Part of negotiating is to realize that most likely neither part will get everything they want so both parties must be willing to settle for some part of what they want.
    If you cannot come to an agreement then the best approach is to agree that, for now, you agree to disagree and hope that at some later date you can reach a settlement of some sort.

    Should we really have expected anything more?
