Intelligence Report Says Trump 'Retreated' From North Korea Deal

Sometimes, that's for the best.

Nor did Churchill or FDR at their wartime summits confront their ally Stalin for his legendary crimes against humanity.

Richard Nixon used to refuse to recognize what was once called Red China. They both joked about Henry Kissinger. In addition, the experience of Ukraine, a country that gave up its nuclear weapons, only to see the world do nothing when Russian Federation annexed Crimea, hardly provides a reason for Kim Jung-un to follow suit.

Amy Zegart, director of the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, said Trump's embrace of authoritarians "is a jagged and risky departure" in American foreign policy.

Donald Trump may not have the power of brutal dictators like Kim Jong-Un, but a source once very close to the president believes Trump would rule just as violently - if he could. "He's amusing, and. very, very smart. and a very strategic kind of a guy".

"I'm going to be actually calling North Korea", Trump told Fox News in an interview when asked what he planned to do on Father's Day.

"You know, countries like Iran and Cuba and other two-bit rogue regimes don't have nuclear weapons, yet", he said.

Of course, Kim also had the advantage of his father's police state to kill his half-brother, his uncle and other potential opponents.

Palermo Mayor Leoluca Orlando said Salvini was "violating worldwide law which makes saving lives a priority". Malta and Italy thanked Spain for stepping up, but maintained their dispute over who was responsible.

"The whole thing looks to be not just a win for Kim, but also very much a win for Xi Jinping", she added. Anybody that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough - I don't say it was nice or I don't say anything about it.

On the eve of Tuesday's Trump-Kim summit in Singapore, the newspaper also said that should its sovereignty be honored, Pyongyang is willing to improve and normalize ties with any country through dialogue. He speaks and his people sit up at attention.

If Trump had had a little more time in Singapore, he could have bought a T-shirt saying: "'My president went to Singapore and all I got was this lousy T-shirt" and taken it home to give to the American people.

Trump drew on emotional language when a reporter asked how he could essentially defend North Korea's human rights record despite the kidnapping that resulted in the death of Otto Warmbier, a deceased former American hostage Trump and diplomats helped free. "I'm kidding. You don't understand sarcasm", Trump said. "You will have nuclear war", he said.

Diplomatic and military experts have been saying for years that there is no way that North Korea will ever give up its nuclear weapons. Thus far, at least, the agreement with North Korea compares unfavorably to the Iran nuclear deal that Trump denounced - and then renounced a month before meeting Kim.

Politics and real life brim with contradictions and insincerity. 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. "I think it's great to give him credibility".

About half an hour later, Fox News notified reporters that Trump was about to appear on the show.

"It will inevitably make the coordination between the two countries on North Korea issue more complicated".
