Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

North Korea on Monday responded to a tweet by U.S. President Donald Trump that hinted at another summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying it has no interest in giving Trump further meetings to brag about unless it gets something substantial in return. The statement by Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan is the latest call by North Korea for U.S. concessions ahead of an end-of-year deadline set by Kim Jong Un for the Trump administration to offer mutually acceptable terms for a deal to salvage nuclear diplomacy. Following a U.S. decision over the weekend to call off joint military exercises with South Korea to create space for diplomacy with the North, Trump in a tweet urged Kim Jong Un to "act quickly, get the deal done" and hinted at another summit between them, saying "See you soon!" But Kim Kye Gwan reiterated his government's stance that Washington must discard what North Korea sees as "hostile" policies to keep the negotiations alive.

... North Korea['s Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan] on Monday responded to [to the US], saying it has no interest in giving Trump further meetings to brag about unless it gets something substantial in return.....

Well, isn't that an interesting twist.

Pres Trump has elevated the world standing of Leader Kim with praise, meetings, a visit to North Korea, and getting little in return.

Now Leader Kim is telling Pres Trump that he (Leader Kim) will not give Pres Trump any more free photo-ops.

Quite interesting how Leader Kim turned the situation around.

Trump has ceded the Alpha status in the dynamics of US/NKOR relationship to Kim. Kim is now more legitimate than Trump, The world knows it, and Kim knows it.

It is Trump who is desperately begging meetings for the sake of looking legitimate.

The world can see that Trump is illegitimate.

Kim knows Trump is an impostor, and Kim will treat him as such, knowing full well Trump will soon be gone.

You built this Republicans. You all own a big fat piece of this -------. Breathe deeply the fetid aroma of your negligence. That's the smell of your party. Pretty sure you wont mind.

Leader Kim was quick to recognize a stupid fool when he saw one.

Oh boy.

Just the notion that this clown has a say in nuclear diplomacy with North Korea is extremely troubling.

"Was it Seattle for Seoul or San Diego for Pyongyang - doesn't matter cuz I don't own land there anyway..."

"This is playing as Trump lays in a lump on the bed going through beautiful love letters from Kim:"

And plotting his revenge.

Trump's not going to take this laying down ~~ not even from his near death bed at Walter Reed ~~ as soon as his brain gets some oxygen again ~~ and providing he can stop saying blub, blub, blub.

Kim knows Trumplethinskin is an addle brained old man whose better days... such as they were... are in the rear view mirror... he is a dottard... who was voted into office by other dottards. Really... when the two of them stand side by side the 30 something leader makes Presidente Tweaker look tired and stupid with all his sanctimoneous airs of superiority.

Kim know he represents the first nation... a very small nation mind you.... that challanged the US military superiority and fought it to stalemate that has lasted 7 decades.

The greatest military in the world doesn't win wars... and Kim used this. standong up to the obvious with a "what are you gonna do about it?" attitude.because he knows he can... NK has a loooooooooooooong history of calling the US's bluff.

But wait, we've increased our military spending and now we also permit war crimes. Our orange king talks loud too!

How could we be treated this way? Can a Con tell me how this is really Obama's fault?

Kim certainly sees Trump is in trouble and just piled on.

That Kim Jung Un thinks it is an honor for an American President to have his picture taken with him makes Donald Trump look like the weakest President in history.

No. They can't. But they are sure somehow it is.

And damn those deep state civil servants who insist on honoring their oaths of office! We need more Rudy Ghoulianies and his Russian henchmen. They could get that Korean job done right!

Let's not forget that China provided a significant number of well equipped ground troops (there are reports that this number was close to 3 million) as well as highly trained pilots in an attempt to achieve air superiority over the battlefields (which BTW they failed to do). Also China, along with Russia, supplied virtually ALL of the military equipment and arms used by North Korea (note that while many of the MIG's used by North Korea were flown by Chinese pilots, virtually all of the planes were manufactured in Russia) and Chinese troops during the period of time when active military operations were underway against the forces of the United Nations, of which America was one of the UN member nations who supplied personnel and equipment.

With this in mind, I would say that your depiction of what happened on the Korean peninsula is disingenuous at best.

OCU actually knows history. Listen to him. History is very important. If understood properly it cn prevent us from making stupid errors, which cost thousands of live and billions of dollars though I still do support our efforts in Korea, S. Korea is like Germany. Someday, we will understand that perseverence against evil will eventually rewards N. Koreans with the outcome E. Germans found. Our urrent President though, receiving beautiful letters from a murdering dictator will not help that ever happen.

# 17. It just means the Kim is smarter than Trump and has played him like a fiddle. He knows publicity and praise is all Trump wants or needs. Denying a photo op cuts Trump to the bone.
