Bombshell: North Korea offers to stop nuclear proliferation

Donald J. Trump the president of the most powerful country in the world has agreed to meet with Kim Jung Un leader of the communist, militarized state of North Korea in an unprecedented and largely unexpected move.

The announcement has left both Trump’s critics and well-wishers stunned but opens the possibility for the end of North Korea’s efforts towards nuclear proliferation. National security advisor for South Korea ,Chung-Eui-Yong, announced that Kim Jun Un is: “committed to denuclearization and… pledged to refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests”

This in the wake of months of back and forth insults between the two world leaders. Trump has reportedly called Kim “little rocket man” and “short and fat” among many other jabs while Kim in his own barbs has referred to Trump as a “frightened dog” and ” mentally deranged US dotard”

This move by North Korea indicates a shift in policy from a focus on military strength to diplomacy. The offer to meet with Trump was relayed through Chung-Eui-Yong earlier this week when his South Korean delegation met with North Korea in their capital of pyongyang – a remarkable occurrence in its own right given the tension between the two nations.

Even by just agreeing to the meeting, the first ever meeting between a US president and the leader of North Korea, Trump is allowing Kim Jung Un greater notoriety and recognition on the world stage. Trump may be motivated by this possible diplomatic victory but his critics have been quick to point out that there is also much the US stands to lose.

Trump has reportedly told Jon Karl of ABC news ahead of the actual meeting that “hopefully you will give me the credit”. Raising questions by some as to whether or not the president grasps the monumental and dire realities of the task that awaits him.

    All Kim has to do is tell the Donald how great he is and he is the greatest president in US history and tell the Donald he can build a hotel in Pyongyang and the Donald will eat it all up and give Kim everything he wants. Kim will get every thing he wants by kissing the Donald’s arze and stoking his ego.

    Hello and good afternoon my people. Well two hours before the statement was made at the White House Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said there won’t be any talk or negotiations with North Korea. Americas highest Ranking negotiator didn’t even know about the meeting. Now how can Trump and Kim meet on such high level talks but when the talks fail is Trump going to send someone else to negotiate on his behalf. How can America negotiate from top down. I call Trump administration stupid Government because nothing is based in facts rather it’s based on speech that fool people who can’t think. Kim has at least one hundred nuclear bombs and he conducted all the missile test to verify the reliability of his long range missiles and it all happened during Trump administration in 2017. This is all a trap set by China and North Korea so when the talks fail China can blame America and in that way they don’t have to support any sanctions against North Korea .

    Kim has been working this all along, finally, pay day. He is only going to tell the US/Trump “Show Me the Money, if you want me to stop”. Just watch.
    Israel has used the same tactic to get even more than the 1.5 billion the US used to give them annually back in the days, by simply agitating the Arab states around them with threats of war. Then the US bumped it up to 2 billion annually for them to tone it down. Or as Obama calmly said to Putin ‘cut it out’ lol

        For those who patiently wait on the coming of our king, remember that there will seem to be peace but the true peace comes from Jesus Christ! It will sound good but it is an illusion! Many will not be able to discern because of the hardness in their hearts.
        saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.
        Jeremiah 6:14
        “They have healed the brokenness of My people superficially, Saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ But there is no peace
        Ezekiel 13:10
        “It is definitely because they have misled My people by saying, ‘Peace!’ when there is no peace. And when anyone builds a wall, behold, they plaster it over with whitewash;
        1 Thessalonians 5:3
        While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.
        Glory to God.

      Hello and good afternoon my people. Well maybe you just don’t understand how the World works when it comes to super powers. North Korea is a client state of China and they won’t allow America to attack kin which acts like a buffer between China, South Korea and Japan. The only thing America have to offer the World is War . No financial firm like Moody’s ,Fitch or Standard and Poors holds America accountable when it comes to their debt which is over Twenty One trillion dollars . America want to destroy China ,Japan and South Korea economy so they can dominate the World. When you look at America economy only two useful thing they are good at making is Military equipment and planes by Boeing.

      Two of it’s kind ????? but it’s a good move because this could cripple the world economy. See wat the war in Iraq and Afghanistan did the the world economy and North Korea would be much worse if this two were to go into a war.

      So I commend South Korea for initiating this move.

      Because this little man doesn’t play.

      Trump mad but he madder than him ??????

      But that is how men behave. Humble and calm after a big problem

      But in Dominica u can’t find that. Because one went to school and the other ……………

      One one going to church to pray the other going to rejok JERRIMY ST CLAIR

      One is feeding the needy the other is calling them greedy

      One is working the other just talking

      One is saving his money he work hard for the other getting money for free and can’t save it because they have to pay for lawsuits after lawsuits

      So it’s hard for a this 62 years old stressful man to think right and have a mature discussion

      That’s just the fact
