What did you get and what did you give away?

quote [ Among the consequences of Donald Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un is that he agreed without apparent condition to end joint U.S./South Korean military exercises, a concession North Korea has sought for decades ]

And what did Trump get for his big wet kiss and sponsoring Kim's coming out party...Nada!

What did he mean when he said we would "End the War Games"? Not sure anybody knows that one including the US military.

Rachel Maddow points out that it's not just North Korea that was eager for this outcome.

According to a report by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), Trump expressed his intention to halt U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises, offer security guarantees to the North and lift sanctions against it as relations improve.

North Korea frames summit as a win as Trump halts war games

It will be some time until we learn about all of what will happen...but so far it doesn't look like this is in the benefit of the US and or its allies.

The Wet Kiss was disgusting to watch.

Trump accomplished 'nothing' at summit with Kim Jong Un

Which other US Presidents since the war have met with North Korea?

None.

History doesn't repeat itself but it often rhymes. I am reminded of the dichotomy between Carter and Reagan over Iran; the difference in the soft and hard liners in foreign policy. In the end Iran remains a contentious adversarial state and so might North Korea but in both cases we got the concession of our hostages back.

It's historic in the more recent sense that it lays bare the relentless, unbridled, and vapid criticism of the President from the MSM. Try as they might to spin this to the negative those that blamed Trump for the Hawaii false alarm in January and asked him to "do something"... those who said the summit would never happen... those that said Trump would sabotage it ... were all proven wrong.

The main criticism focuses on the ceasing of the war games exercises. I find this to be ironic coming from the "side" that used to say we shouldn't be the world's police; a point that made me a Democrat in the 00's. It all boils down to a lack of gratitude; the penchant for entitlements going hand in hand with the inability to graciously accept we elected someone that actually wanted to make moves towards world peace.
