I may have just pinged our security department, but after a few google searches (most of which were blocked) I get the odds of 2.5/1 that Trump and Kim meet in person. Down considerably.

Any of the naysayers can to throw out some odds of their own?

Every narrative can be twisted when you control everything. All they’ll say is they extended an olive branch with a burger place, and the US evilly rejected them. Also, you sprinkle a little crap in the burger meat, so it taste like poo, and everyone there will think we’re not only evil, but also eat feces like crazy people.

WASHINGTON ó Holding a rare meeting with a high-ranking North Korea official, President Trump received a letter Friday from Kim Jong Un concerning the prospects of an historic summit meeting between the two nuclear-armed leaders.

Kim Yong Chol, a former North Korean spy chief who is now a top aide to Kim Jong Un, entered the White House in the early afternoon to hand-deliver the letter to Trump during a meeting with the U.S. president and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

"Our two countries face a pivotal moment in a relationship in which it could be nothing short of tragic to let this opportunity go to waste," Pompeo told reporters after meetings on Thursday with a North Korean delegation.

The president's public schedule did not include a meeting with Kim Yong Chol, but the White House later said that the North Korean official would attend Trump's scheduled meeting with Pompeo in the Oval Office.

"A letter is going to be delivered to me from Kim Jong Un," Trump told reporters on Thursday. "So I look forward to seeing what's in the letter."


https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...-un/662680002/

I am thinking that the letter is really just Kim's Micky Ds order. I see him as a fish sandwich kind of guy.

NBA star turned Kim Jong Un soulmate Dennis Rodman will be in Singapore during President Trump’s summit with the North Korean dictator next week, The n.y. Post has learned.

“The Worm” will arrive in the country a day before the June 12 sitdown — and sources said he could even play some sort of role in the negotiations

It has got to be hard to type out these kind responses with your nose thrust so far up in the air.

With all of the salt and sandy V's coming from the left, Trump could build us our own islands like China.

Come to think of it...
I was recruited to teach English in Korea about 15 years ago
I was going to teach in GEPIK
Some rural school district north of Seoul close to the NK border
I never got on the plane
Still have the unused employment visa in an old passport

Once I caught wind of where I was actually going to be teaching I figured my skills would be better used teaching math in Deep East Texas so I stayed stateside and that's what I did.

Anyhow, that's my korea story.

Now all these years later I'm sitting here watching this with two kids laying on me asleep on the couch.

God bless America

The fat man looks tall. Hopefully he is just standing on a phone book or something, and Donnies not bowing down to him.

Pretty historic event, hopefully progress will come to the region. They pretty much only have one way to go.

At the most historic point during this most historic day, Jim Acosta from CNN showed his true colors with the most disgusting question at the most inappropriate time. He should never be allowed into a Presidential or White House presser ever again.
President Trump today was enjoying one of the most significant and historical moments of his Presidency. He had somehow brought the leader of North Korea to the table to sign the most important agreement in the last 70 years for the Korean people. The President brought Kim Jong Un to Singapore to negotiate a deal between the US and North Korea. Only a year ago Korea was sending rockets over Japan and today their leader was signing an agreement with US President Trump.

Months of hard work and diplomacy were reaching their apex. The moment will go down in history. Then Fake News CNNís Jim Acosta, the darling of the disgusting left, blurted out loudly for all to hear Ė

Breitbart.com - Chuck Woolery shared this on tweeter -= there is a full article there with all of the demands if you want to read it. This is the header:

Senate Democrats have written a letter to President Donald Trump with a list of requirements that any deal with North Korea must meet if they are to support it.
The irony: the Iran deal violated each and every one of those.

About the funniest thing i have seen was CNNs interview with dennis rodman last night. You know he went to Singapore to get his share of attention. hes a bisexual, liberal, black, athlete so just a perfect mix to interview on CNN to shame trump from Singapore..

NOPE! Rodman walks up to the camera and puts on his MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN cap. They were totally perplexed at CCNN when he wouldnt take the bait and trash Trump. Live tv and Rodman wearing that cap.

4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

Something should be coming of it in very short order or the entire thing is just worth the paper its written on IMO. First milestone is due now.

Something should be coming of it in very short order or the entire thing is just worth the paper its written on IMO.
Easy enough for NK to say they don't have any remains. The problem with the language of the statement is there's no mechanisms for verification or enforcement: no language for US personnel to enter NK to look for remains, etc. Same for the nukes. But with a few hours of meetings, I didn't really expect such.

I'm by no means saying that this won't lead to a verifiable and enforceable agreement, but I'll reserve my excitement until that point. As Trump himself pointed out, "it's just the beginning".
