Donald Trump recently said If we don't think it's going to be successful ... we won't have it. We won't have it. If I think that it's a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go." Shortly thereafter Kim Jong Un announced that he was suspending further nuclear testing. Donald Trump could, of course, take credit for Kim’s because of his desire to meet with the Donald. Trump could claim his words drove Kim Jong Un to suspend further testing.
The Trump missile strikes on Syria = no stop to chemical weapons program.
Trump says he will “leave” a planned meeting with Kim Jong Un if it is not “fruitful."
"A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!" Trump said in a Twitter post. Reuters
So what? Just what do these strikes accomplish?
Why is it that Trump always goes nuclear when he faces criticisms? When faced with controversy he protests too much.
