Secretary of State Mr Mike Pompeo seems to have picked up lessons from POTUS on how to deal with reporters when he lashed out over a question on the subsequent dealing with North Korea after the Singapore summit earlier this week.

When asked repeatedly on a detailed timeline for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, Mr Pompeo clearly got agitated and responded: “I find that question insulting and ridiculous and, frankly, ludicrous.”

“I just have to be honest with you. It’s a game and one ought not play games with serious matters like this.”

Later that same day, during a joint media conference with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, who all expressed their gratitude towards the US for getting the process started, Mr Pompeo added: “Kim Jong-un understands the urgency of denuclearisation and that we must do this quickly.”

Although the general view was that the meeting was received very positively as a step towards peace, many in the US Press wanted to get a detailed understanding of when NOKO would denuclearize fully and claimed this was not touched upon in the agreement that Mr Trump and Mr Kim Jung-Un signed. To this end, Mr Pompeo said: “Not all of that work appeared in the final document, but there were lots of other places where there were understandings reached.”

“We couldn’t reduce them to writing, so that means there’s still some work to do, but there was a great deal of work done that is beyond what was seen in the final document.”

Returning to the US, President Donald Trump also blamed the US media for their skepticism of the historic feat that had been achieved in Singapore: “They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea. 500 days ago they would have “begged” for this deal – looked like war would break out. Our country’s biggest enemy is the fake news so easily promulgated by fools!”

The MSM wants war with the Norks as they cannot accept that POTUS is doing a great job. It will go down in history as doing such against such harsh critics as the demifools and MSM.

Keep up the good work!!!!

All that is good but what about south Korea and their discomfort? Have we put the relations with them on a back burner? They should be taken into full confidence before doing anything with the north Koreans.

This NK summit must have the Liberals going bananas. Trump did something they could not and it did not cost US Taxpayers 5 plane loads of $$$$$.
