I’ll say what the main stream left crazed media won’t say…Donald Trump and his magnifiscent team have made history and opened doors to North Korea that previously have been locked shut. The agreement, signed by President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un, represents a first positive step toward a better world. The agreement states:
Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.-DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:
1. The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.
Having acknowledged that the U.S.-DPRK summit—the first in history—was an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un commit to implement the stipulations in this joint statement fully and expeditiously. The United States and the DPRK commit to hold follow-on negotiations, led by the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the U.S.-DPRK summit.
President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new U.S.-DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.
Trump showed Kim a video during their talks which showed the dictator what could be possible for his country if he agreed to denuclearize:
“Seven billion people inhabit Planet Earth. Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact. And only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history,” the video’s narrator says.
“History is always evolving, and there comes a time when only a few are called upon to make a difference. But the question is: What difference will the few make? The past doesn’t have to be the future.”
The narrator continues: “A new world can begin today, one of friendship, respect and goodwill. Be part of that world, where the doors of opportunity are ready to be opened.”
Leaving North Korea’s future in Kim’s hands, the narrator asks, “Will this leader choose to advance his country and be part of a new world? Be the hero of his people? Will he shake the hand of peace and enjoy prosperity like he has never seen? A great life, or isolation? Which path will be chosen?”
Trump said he believed Chairman Kim liked what he saw in the video.
The carrot is an opportunity for Kim to leave the dark past behind and welcome in a bright, more satisfying future for himself and his people.
Kim Jong Un began to test President Trump as soon as he took office and a series of provocative acts were met with layers of sanctions. Trump also enlisted the aid of China. As the confrontation devolved into public mud slinging, Trump planned for every possible outcome. A man of his word, Trumps reputation preceded him. The strategy worked. Kim stepped back. And thus began substantive talks that would lead to the historic moment on June 12, 2018 when the two leaders came together to begin walking down this new path of engagement.
No one can say for sure what will happen next. The left is more interested in petty politics than the possibility of improved conditions. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump acted in “haste” and got only “vague promises.” Both are vapid mischaracterizations of the efforts that have been, and will be, made in future. Even prior to the summit left pundits and politicians were saying that Trump was too inexperienced and unprepared to negotiate….blah, blah, blah…
News flash! Trump has been observing and considering ideas since at least 1999. See video of Trump talking about the North Korea problem with Wolf Blitzer at Gateway Pundit.
The thing that encourages me is that Trump and his team are committed to the long game. This was not a negotiated photo op that once done the parties simply move on. This was not a bribery scheme to construct a legacy with little thought to unintended consequences. This is thoughtful, honest, diplomacy that came from outside the box.
We’ve never been here before. Forget the negative left….let’s give it a chance to work.
