A WTF MOMENT: Trump Promises Kim, Jung-un Can Stay in Power in North Korea

So, who is the better con man/büllshïtter — 
(We are about to find out)

Trump is trying to keep his summit with Kim, Jong-un on track now offering the North Korean leader a guarantee of staying in power if he abandons nuclear weapons.

As prospects for a historic summit next month between the two leaders dimmed, Trump told reporters that if the meeting were to go ahead successfully, ... Kim will get protections that will be very strong,” adding: “He’d be in his country and running his country. His country would be very rich.”

But the pledge came barbed with a warning that if diplomacy fails, Kim could suffer the same fate as Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi who was overthrown and killed by rebels.

Side Note: NSC Adviser John Bolton is advocating a direct attack on North Korea and he compared the outcome citing the Libyan model.

FYI: Bolton is patently insane and has go … he is an awful man and direct threat to common sense and decency – the worst part: he has Trump’s ear.

These latest Trump comments came as Pyongyang appeared to cool to the idea of the sit-down in Singapore on June 12, denouncing U.S. demands for “unilateral nuclear abandonment” and Bolton’s remarks, too.

Additionally, Trump suggests that Kim’s apparent about-face may have been at the behest of Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

My 2 cents: This is getting serious all over again, and Trump is simply incapable of solving this dilemma – a very obvious fact.

Time will tell about who is the real “artist of this deal, or con — take your pick” … and stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by.
