So, who is the better “con man/büllshïtter” —

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.
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.
