@RealDrGina

CNN confirms it was predictably Jim Acosta that yelled “So are you going to give up your nukes?” at Kim Jong Un during the photo op.

Trump and Kim walked along the promenade at Singapore's Capella Hotel Tuesday morning local time, trailed by two translators, after leaving the room where they had their 35-minute private meeting, where Acosta and other journalists awaited and shouted questions.

Acosta asked Trump how things were going so far.

"Very good. Very, very good," the president said in reply.

Then Acosta, along with at least one other journalist, posed a question to Kim: "Will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?"

But Trump and Kim had already begun walking away and the queries went unanswered.

"Chairman Kim has told me that North Korea is already destroying a major missile engine testing site, that is not in your signed document, we agreed to that after the agreement was signed," Trump said at a solo press conference in Singapore after Kim left the summit meeting.

"That's a big thing, the missiles that they were testing, the site is going to be destroyed very soon," he said.

Trump added moments later, "we will be stopping the war games, which will be saving us a tremendous amount of money, unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should. But we'll be saving a tremendous amount of money, plus I think it is very provocative."

Trump said he believed it was "inappropriate" to conduct war games with South Korea while the two sides are in the middle of a new agreement aimed at defusing the Korean Peninsula.
So that's the going cost of a Nobel Prize these days.

Quite vague actually, although it could be a prelude to something more concrete.

Very nice walkback of war games. "Costs too much anyway". e.g. "We still carry the big stick, it's just not worth the money to us."

As one critic put it, Trump always over-pays even for deals he won.

Obama just had to buy a Democratic nomination.

Two Norwegian lawmakers representing the populist party in the country’s legislature have nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The lawmakers told their local media that Trump has “taken a huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea.” The nomination comes after Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway took a swipe at former President Barack Obama’s own Nobel Peace Prize saying “look, the last president was handed Nobel Peace Prize. This president is actually going to earn it.”

It's just LOL. His odds of winning are a bit tiny but at least he got a little nominated.

Kim Jong-un Blew Off Mike Pompeo to Visit a Potato Farm

When Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Pyongyang last weekend, he was supposed to have a one-on-one meeting with Kim Jong-un. But the North Korean leader never showed up during Pompeo’s three-day visit. His top deputy, who took the meeting in Kim’s absence, said his boss was out of town without revealing what was more important than a sit-down with the top U.S. diplomat.

Turns out, potatoes were more important. On Tuesday, North Korean state media published several reports about Kim’s visit to a rural area near the Chinese border where he provided “field guidance” to potato farmers.
[…]
Meanwhile, back in Pyongyang, the meetings between Pompeo and representatives of Kim’s governments were a disaster. Despite the secretary’s attempt to put a positive spin on the visit, as soon as he was out of the country, North Korea criticized his “unilateral and gangster-like” demands and called the talks “regrettable.”

You know, we were talking elsewhere about trolling for the lulz and stuff like that but this is one that is beyond any trolling n the history of man. This is up there with him getting elected in the first place.

Oh ... how the bitter salty tears would flow.

The really funny thing is that there is justification for it.
