ExpandMyMind Posted March 9, 2018 #76 Share Posted March 9, 2018 (edited) Ah, well. Looks like it was just the usual spontaneous crap from Trump. Quote It turns out Trump’s foreign policy masterstroke did not come as the result of a Metternichtian calculation but instead a completely spontaneous outburst. South Korean official Chung Eui-yong was in the White House yesterday meeting with other officials. Trump decided to see Chung right away; maybe Fox News was in repeats or something. Trump “then asked Mr. Chung to tell him about his meeting with Mr. Kim,” reports the New YorkTimes. “When Mr. Chung said that the North Korean leader had expressed a desire to meet Mr. Trump, the president immediately said he would do it, and directed Mr. Chung to announce it to the White House press corps.” It sounds from this account that Trump had no real idea that North Korea has always wanted a face-to-face meeting with the U.S. president, and the U.S. has always imposed conditions Sanders, on her usual damage control mode, had to make it clear that the same conditions added by previous administrations would have to be agreed to by NK. Looks like @Agent0range might have been right about changing the news cycle after all. Edited March 9, 2018 by ExpandMyMind 3 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
