Sooo... Trump just said he would shield Kim Jong Un from CIA intelligence gathering efforts, while gushing about how his dictator boy crush wrote him a "very warm very nice letter" and STILL continuing to ignore the North Korean missile tests.

We will now watch all the so called strong on national security US conservatives make excuses or completely ignore this.

President Trump on Friday boasted about his friendly relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, arguing it is a positive development for foreign policy efforts.

"You have a man that was so happy to see me. That’s a good thing, not a bad thing," Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for fundraisers in Ohio and Wisconsin.

"You have a man that doesn’t smile a lot, but when he saw me, he smiled. He was happy,"

Gromeau, tell me how you would fix the situation?

Can't Nuke North Korea because China would prevent that with Good reason.

Can't invade them because the US would tick off China and Russia.

So, how would Gcomeau fix the problem?

I doubt that the situation is fixable, however in the meantime we (the west) shouldn't be speaking of Kim and his regime as if they are normal good guys. It will embolden them, and not discourage their medieval behavior.
