    Trump-Kim Summit: In Vietnam, the 2 Leaders Meet for Dinner

    President Trump shook hands with Kim Jong-un on Wednesday night to kick off their second summit gathering. The two leaders are sitting down to a formal dinner with some of their top aides.

    Formal talks between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim, their second such meeting in eight months, will kick off on Thursday. The United States wants North Korea to dismantle its nuclear weapons program. The North Koreans are seeking numerous concessions, including an end to punishing sanctions.
    • It is a critical moment for Mr. Trump, who vowed to “solve” the North Korea problem before his inauguration, and for Mr. Kim, who needs to make good on promises to nurture the North Korean economy.

    Donald has the potential to do some real good here, if he can stay focused and not be distracted by the shiny bauble Un will most likely dangle in front of him -- a formal end to the Korean War.

    Such a declaration wouldn't cause any practical changes, although it would be quite the diplomatic feather in Donald's cap... and probably get him that Nobel Peace Prize he covets so desperately.

    If Un offers a Korean peace in exchange for, let's say, Donald abandoning his denuclearization crusade, there's a very real possibility that he'll take the bait... resulting in an award for himself, and a nuclear program for a North Korea that no longer needs to focus its attention on South Korea.

    The question becomes, is Donald that gullible? Some of his own experts seem to think he might be, and who am I to second guess the experts?

    Naturally, I have lots of doubts. Still, I saw relations with China and with Vietnam thaw, when I was younger, and I wouldn't have thought those possible. So, there's hope.

    I'm sure Trump will brag about the bag of magic beans he gets.

    I just don't understand why I would expect more from the other side?

    By now I should know what to expect?

    Slow learner up top the mountain I guess? Or, just still holding out hope?

    We get it. You want everyone else to lovingly adore everything He does and it distresses you when "those people" can't see Him for what a great person, leader, thinker, speaker, diplomat, negotiator, etc. He is.

    It's not to happen.

    And somewhere in the afterlife, past US presidents are making fun of "Spinnin' Dick."

    The President really needs a distraction now.

    Let's aim higher than that -- let's wish him some actual success.

    I thought the nuclear threat from N. Korea had already been dealt with? That's what President Trump had assured us last year.

    While I am doubtful anything will come of it I remain hopeful. If Trump manages to pull off a win here it will be a nice feather in his cap. I expect his sycophants will spin it as a win no matter what happens.

    I think it would have been rather humorous if Kim had served Trump hamburgers, French fries and pizza during their dinner. I'm sorry, that would be hamberders, not hamburgers. My mistake.
