Trump says he was the one who requested to call off joint exercises with South Korea
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/trump-call-joint-exercises/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
June 18, 2018
In the midst of his negotiations with North Korea, one move by President Donald Trump was tragically overlooked.

As part of the deal, President Trump chose to end joint military operations with South Korea. 

Stunning announcement
When the agreement with Kim was first made, South Korea was apparently caught off guard by Trump’s announcement.

Even though the halt of the exercises was made public, it was more or less overlooking by most of the media outlets.

As rumblings started to surface, Trump was (of course) raked over the coals for suspending operations.

Brilliant move or mistake?
Many of the political pundits that are making a career out of criticizing Trump called this action a major misstep by the president.

They are calling him weak, and even saying the move proves his inexperience in the political world.

Once again, though, these pundits made a call without knowing all the facts.

Over the weekend, both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence offered some clarity, making all of these pundits look like fools in the process.

Pence was quick to note that even though the “war games” were being called off, readiness exercises were still taking place.

Trump himself stated the war games were “VERY EXPENSIVE” and “set a bad light during a good faith negotiation.”

Why call them off?
Taking a look at the exercises from the viewpoint of an adversary, the cessation of them is a huge show of faith on Trump’s part.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has long touted the games as an act of aggression as well as taunting his military.

By calling the games off, Trump is showing Kim he means business in terms of the peace talks.

Do You Think Trump Was Right to Call Off War Games?
Yes
No
Next
As long as this move does not risk our military’s readiness in case of a sudden attack, it could go a long way in getting Kim to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

The verdict is not quite in on this move from the president, but knowing Trump and his negotiating genius, he likely has more tricks up his sleeve than we know about.

Top NK Military Officials Purged Ahead of Summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has removed three top military officials as his summit with President Donald Trump draws near. After months of exchanging bellicose and belittling rhetoric, the two leaders are scheduled to meet in Singapore on June 12.

The initial news that the three military officials had been removed was published by South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, per Newsmax.

One analyst said the move is a pre-emptive political strike to ensure that the Korean People’s Army will not resist any agreements Kim and Trump might reach.

“If Kim Jong Un is set on making peace with the U.S. and South Korea and dealing away at least part of the nuclear program, he will have to put the KPA’s influence in a box and keep it there,” said Ken Gause, director of the International Affairs Group at CNA, a research and analysis organization, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

“This reshuffle has brought to the fore the officers who can do just that. They are loyal to Kim Jong Un and no one else,” he said.

The move replaces older officials with younger ones, and was labeled by some as a generational change.

“All these (promoted) guys are top Kim Jong Un guys,” blogger Michael Madden, who writes on North Korea, told CNN.

“All three of them have held very sensitive and high level positions under Kim Jong Un, they’re very loyal (to him), and all have experience interacting with foreign delegations,” he said.

Changing leaders means that Kim expects North Korea to make changes following the summit, one expert said.

“This points to two things — the consolidation of Kim Jong Un’s power as the sole leader of North Korea and strengthened cooperation between the North’s party and military as the country works towards further economic development,” said Yang Moo-jin, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul. “They’re all young but capable people.”

Madden agreed.

“It’s a good choice of support for his diplomacy efforts. It’s good to have these people in high office to provide him follow-through,” Madden said, according to The Washington Post. “So if there are policies he needs to implement, these are people who are not going to be resistant to that and they will make sure his policies are implemented in a timely fashion.”

Kim Yong Hyun, a professor of North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul, told The Post that although the ousted leaders were men who knew about combat, the new leaders know how the military can play a role in organizing the economy.

That could mean Kim is “pursuing a new policy to become a developing country without nuclear weapons, rather than a poor country with nuclear weapons,” he said.

“He has chosen the route of pursuing denuclearization and a peace treaty through dialogue, and is appointing a new generation of military leaders to set the tone for his vision,” the professor said.

“Kim Jong Un has chosen a new leadership who reflects his new approach and can more naturally propagate his new policies to bring stability within the military,” he added.

Personal Feelings Aside
President Trump takes a lot of flack simply for not being liked.

People are unable to put their personal feelings aside and actually look at his accomplishments in office.

If they managed to act like adults, they would see the amazing accomplishments of this administration in such a short period of time.

Foreign Policy Victory
This little feud with North Korea may end up being the legacy of Trump.

While many of his critics challenged him for going toe-to-toe with Kim, Trump actually broke him.

There is literally no way China would ever back North Korea if they started a war with the United States or one of its allies.

China actually came out and said exactly that when this feud started.

The moment China did that, Kim knew he was on thin ice and backed down.

Now, he is literally begging Trump to come to the table for this summit.

If Trump and Kim are able to come to terms at the summit and denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, it will be monumental.

Do You Think Trump Will Denuclearize the Korean Peninsula?
Yes
No

Forget it being Trump’s legacy, it will be one of the greatest accomplishments by any sitting president in modern history.

And that will be one headline the liberals will not be able to twist into something negative, no matter how hard they try.

Trump Hits North Korean Officials with Power Move During Official White House Visit
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/trump-hits-north-korean-officials-with-power-move-during-official-white-house-visit/?utm_source=push&utm_medium=westernjournalism&utm_content=2018-06-02&utm_campaign=manualpost

So, the June 12 “Megaroar in Singapore” between Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump is back on. I admit, it doesn’t have the same ring as the “Thrilla in Manila” or “Rumble in the Jungle,” but it probably has way more geopolitical consequences than Ali-Frasier II or III.

The meeting is back on after Gen. Kim Yong Chol came to New York City to meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday.

“President Trump and I believe Chairman Kim is the kind of leader who can make those kinds of decisions. And that in the coming weeks and months, we will have the opportunity to test whether or not this is the case,” Pompeo said, after announcing the meeting was back on.

On Friday, Gen. Kim became the highest-level member of the North Korean hierarchy to visit the White House in 20 years, bearing a letter for the president from Kim Jong Un.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Kim’s letter included allusions to moving forward with the peace process without making any substantive guarantees regarding denuclearization, a source briefed on it reported.

However, few noticed Trump making a power move as the North Korean delegation left the White House. See if you can spot it:

VIDEO KJU CRYING

Video footage of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un weeping over his country’s hurting economy is circulating in Pyongyang, according to Japan’s Asahi Shimbun newspaper, citing an unnamed defector.

The video reportedly shows Kim standing on the coastline of North Korea, gazing toward the horizon as tears flow down his cheeks.

In the background, “a narrator explains that the North Korean leader is distraught over his inability to radically overhaul the economy to make the reclusive country a vibrant power,” Business Insider reported.

Asahi Shimbun explained that the video may be an attempt to show a different side of the leader in preparation for the possible summit next month to discuss denuclarization with President Donald Trump.

“This side of the man, considered by many in the West as a despot, could be viewed as an attempt to portray the ‘Dear Leader’ in a more flattering light as North Korea continues to signal its readiness to open up more to the outside world through a dramatic change in its foreign policy,” Asahi Shimbun reported.

The defector said the video surfaced in North Korea in April. At that time, Kim had indicated he was willing to negotiate with Trump, and had already met with then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

While Trump pursues diplomatic negotiations with the Korean leader, he has also prioritized enacting tough sanctions on the country’s economy, including pressuring China — North Korea’s biggest trading partner — to participate in the sanctions.

As reported by Business Insider, this video could be a sign of the effectiveness of these sanctions and indicate that Kim is preparing to “cave in to President Donald Trump in negotiations.”

North Korean dictators, including Kim Jong Un and his predecessors, are portrayed in the country as powerful god-like figures.

Thus, as reported by Business Insider, “showing (Kim) crying at his own inability to improve his country’s economics would be a shock” and is possibly “meant to prepare the country for possible changes after the summit with Trump,” the defector explained.

Last week, Trump abruptly called off the planned June 12 summit with Kim, citing “tremendous anger and open hostility” in recent North Korean statements.

North Korea quickly responded, calling Trump’s decision “regrettable” and expressing a desire to go forward with the meeting.

Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan announced the country was willing to sit down with the United States “at any time, at any format” and wished “to give the U.S. time and opportunities” to reconsider, The Associated Press reported.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday said that since Trump’s letter canceling the summit, “the North Koreans have been engaging,” with the U.S. “The United States continues to actively prepare for President Trump’s expected summit with leader Kim in Singapore,” she said in a statement.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will visit North Korea on May 31 to discuss the situation on the peninsula. It follows Pyongyang’s landmark demolition of its nuclear test site last week.
The Russian top official will meet his North Korean counterpart to discuss bilateral relations and pressing international issues, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

In April, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho visited Moscow, where he held talks with Lavrov. The Russian foreign minister confirmed at the time that he accepted an invitation from Ri to visit Pyongyang. 

Earlier in May, North Korea conducted the demolition of tunnels leading to its nuclear test site at Punggye-ri. Aimed to demonstrate Pyongyang’s commitment to denuclearization, the move followed a landmark summit between Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, held in the demilitarized zone in April.

However, just hours after the North provided on its promise to demolish the location, US President Donald Trump canceled the much-anticipated meeting with Kim Jong-un, citing “tremendous anger and open hostility” from the North Korean government.

The US, which has made a number of U-turns in dealing with the issue of North Korea, later said the meeting is not completely off the table. Just one day after scrapping the summit, Trump confirmed that the vice leader of North Korea, Kim Yong-chol, was on his way to the US for talks to arrange the upcoming meeting between Trump and Kim.

Photo via Video Screenshot
Earlier this week, President Trump called off the U.S-North Korean summit.

However, in what appears to be an effort to save the summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in had a private meeting on Saturday.

Not So Fast
When Trump canceled the summit, several pundits noted the cleverness of his letter to Kim.

While the President openly chastised Kim for his most recent tone, he was also quite complimentary to him in other areas.

He more or less dared Kim not to fall victim to being manipulated by the Chinese and to do what he knows is right.

Kim apparently got the message, because he and Moon met to discuss saving the summit.

Moon has said he will release a statement on Sunday revealing the full details of the meeting.

When word of the meeting between Kim and Moon leaked out, President Trump seemed hopeful the summit could still be saved…

Finding the Right Path
Kim seems very conflicted over what he needs to do.

Quite honestly, his recent behavior is more typical of a manipulative child than a world leader.

Kim had started down the right path back in April.

After all but daring Trump to go to war and finding out Trump was not going to back down, Kim did what was right for his people and met with Moon to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

After that meeting, it was agreed upon that South Korea would host the summit and serve as the mediator for Trump and Kim.

Several days later, though, Chinese President Xi met with Kim, and his tone noticeably changed in regard to the United States.

That tone is what led Trump to cancel the summit.

Do You Think Summit Will Happen in June?
Yes
No
Next
Now, after Trump’s letter, Kim seems to have changed his tune again.

For the good of the world, we can only hope his path stays true this time.

Art of the Deal: KJU Sprints Back to Table After Trump Cancels Summit
VIDEO 
BY CILLIAN ZEAL 
MAY 25, 2018 AT 6:46AM
Could Thursday’s announcement that the United States was cancelling its summit with the North Koreans be yet another sign that the Trump administration is driving a hard bargain? Well, let’s put it this way: Kim Jong Un is rushing back to the table with a decided quickness.

So, as you likely know, the much-awaited summit between the president and Kim in Singapore is off for the moment. On Thursday, the president sent the North Korean leader a letter saying that “based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.”

However, we kind of have to back up a bit to figure out just what that statement meant — and look at what it precipitated.

As we also likely know, the summit in Singapore had come about after Kim met with South Korean President Moon Jae In and promised to move toward denuclearization. Things were looking pretty good. Dare we say … Nobelesque?

That’s when Kim Jong Un began acting a bit — well, like Kim Jong Un.

First, the North Korean dictator issued a strong statement against joint South Korean and United States military exercises, exercises that had been scheduled long before Kim had met with either President Moon or Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had traveled to Pyongyang.

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich also reported that the North Koreans “refused to denuclearize in a complete and verifiable way.” Then, suddenly, they stopped talking to the South Koreans or Americans altogether.

“We were rocking” in preparation for the planned meeting in Singapore, Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday.

However, he said nobody was picking up on the other end.

“The summit was halted because we couldn’t get them (North Korea) to pick up the phone. There was radio silence,” one senior official said.

Then on Wednesday, North Korea went full North Korea, issuing a statement calling Vice President Mike Pence a “dummy” and threatening America with nuclear war for something like the 816th time.

“Whether the U.S. will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States,” a statement from North Korean Vice Minister Choe Son Hui read.

That’s what prompted the cancellation. However, in spite of the letter, Trump seemed to keep the possibility of a meeting open, although he did add that our military was at the ready.

“If and when Kim Jong Un chooses to engage in constructive dialogue and actions, I am waiting. In the meantime, our very strong sanctions, by far the strongest sanctions ever imposed, and maximum pressure campaign will continue as it has been continuing,” Trump said in a statement.

It didn’t take long before Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan was sounding a significantly different tune.

The Associated Press reported Friday that he announced the country was willing to sit down with the United States “at any time, at any format” and was “willing to give the U.S. time and opportunities” to reconsider.

Kim, meanwhile, is said to have called the cancellation of talks “unexpected” and “very regrettable,” and said that North Korea’s “objective and resolve to do our best for the sake of peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and all humankind remain unchanged.”

Right.

Now that the Supreme Court has legalized state-sponsored betting, I’m curious if I can make a wager on whether or not the North Korean summit actually happens.

I’d be willing to put a ton of money on this meeting actually happening, and all without saber-rattling from Pyongyang.

Kim’s complaint about the joint exercises was exactly what everyone thought it was: empty posturing. After a month or two of behaving like a sane individual, he wanted to go back to the good old days when everything that didn’t go Pyongyang’s way was met with minatory rage.

Unfortunately, that’s not going to get sanctions removed or the international community on Kim’s side. Trump knew it, and called his bluff.

Apparently, Kim is certainly ready to pick up the phone now, and we don’t hear quite as much grumbling about those military exercises.

Talks between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may have just hit a snag.

After Kim met with China’s president, Trump said there was a notable difference in the posturing of Kim, and “I can’t say that I’m happy about it.”

The Summit
Trump and Kim were expected to meet at some point in June to discuss denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.

Kim himself had made some rather surprising moves to appease Trump.

The North Korean leader vowed to no longer test nuclear missiles.

He also stated he was going to take one testing site down completely.

Then he met with President Xi Jinping of China.

Posturing
After the meeting with Xi, Kim’s posture towards the United States has seemingly changed.

Not long after the meeting, North Korea blasted the United States over military exercises it was holding with South Korea.

In addition to that criticism, North Korea issued a statement expressing its disinterest in the summit if the United States was going to insist on “unilateral nuclear abandonment.”

That is a huge reversal from Kim’s previous position.

President Trump believes the meeting with China is what changed Kim’s position.

While Trump had had a positive relationship with China thus far, he believes the Chinese leader was the little birdie talking in Kim’s ear.

Trump has not dismissed the summit altogether, though.

Trump stated, “If it doesn’t happen, maybe it will happen later.”

The President also stated the United States remains in talks with North Korea regarding the summit.

If the summit is called off, it would be a huge disappointment for the administration that has been touting this summit for weeks.

The first video of the demolition of North Korea’s nuclear testing site at Punggye-ri shows tunnels in the mountainside being buried in rubble. The site was destroyed ahead of a planned summit in Singapore, now canceled by the US.
The three operational tunnels at the site were demolished along with the accompanying structures, according to the RT correspondent  Igor Zhdanov, invited to witness the event.
North Korea had conducted six nuclear tests at the site. The demolition was meant to demonstrate Pyongyang’s commitment to denuclearization after the April summit between Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in in the demilitarized zone separating the divided peninsula.
Just hours after the demolition, US President Donald Trump canceled the summit with Kim, scheduled for June 12 in Singapore, citing the “tremendous anger and open hostility” in a recent statement by North Korea.

Breaking: Trump Pulls Out of Summit with North Korea, ‘Sad Moment in History’

Breaking: Trump Pulls Out of Summit with North Korea, ‘Sad Moment in History’
https://www.westernjournal.com/breaking-trump-pulls-out-of-summit-with-north-korea-sad-moment-in-history/?utm_source=push&utm_medium=westernjournalism&utm_content=2018-05-24&utm_campaign=manualpost

President Donald Trump announced Thursday morning that his highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been canceled.

The president pointed to Kim’s “hostility” displayed in the past month as the reason why going forward with the summit would be “inappropriate.”

Earlier this month, Kim had threatened to pull out of the meeting with Trump set to be held in Singapore on June 12 and also abruptly canceled a meeting with South Korea.

In a letter to Kim on Thursday, Trump called the canceled talks a “missed opportunity” and “a truly sad moment in history.”

“Based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump wrote. “Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.”

Leading up to Trump’s decision, North Korean officials had been threatening to not go through with the summit.

On Thursday, Vice Minister of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, Choe Son Hui, said that whether the U.S. “will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States,” according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Choe also made a disparaging comment about Vice President Mike Pence who had said that North Korea asked to have the meeting.

“As a person involved in the U.S. affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the U.S. vice president,” Choe reportedly said.

According to Fox News, however, Trump officials said these comments were not the reason the president decided to pull out of the summit.

“I felt a wonderful dialogue was building between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you,” Trump wrote in his letter to Kim.

“If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.”

On Monday, Pence noted in an interview with Fox News that unlike former presidential administrations, Trump will not be “played” by North Korea.

“Truthfully, the Clinton administration, even the Bush administration got played in the past,” Pence said.  “It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong Un to think he could play Donald Trump.”

Pence also made clear that Trump was completely willing to walk away from the negotiating table if North Korea backs away from its promises.

“There’s no question,” he said.

When asked whether Trump was concerned about the possible embarrassment that could result if this process with North Korea fails after so much progress, Pence replied, “I don’t think President Trump is thinking about public relations. He’s thinking about peace.”

US & NORTH Korea Summit June 12

US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday there was a "substantial chance" his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will not take place as planned on June 12 amid concerns that Kim is not committed to denuclearisation.

United States President Donald Trump has cast doubt on his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying that while it is on track, it could be delayed past the planned June 12 date.

Speaking to reporters at a White House meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae In on Tuesday, Mr Trump said he believed Pyongyang was serious about denuclearisation. But he flagged the possibility there would be no summit if certain conditions were not met.

"There is a very substantial chance that it won't work out, and that is okay... It may not work out for June 12. But there is a good chance we will have the meeting," he said.

Yesterday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has met Mr Kim twice recently, told a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that "a bad deal is not an option".

"The American people are counting on us to get this right. If the right deal is not on the table, we will respectfully walk away," he said.

Their comments have left officials and others wondering if the Singapore summit is going ahead, might be off or likely to be postponed.

Meanwhile, US and Singapore officials and media continue preparing for a June 12 summit, including pinning down venues for accommodation and the meeting.

Several hotels, including the Shangri-La Hotel and Marina Bay Sands, have begun taking back allocated rooms from travel agents in anticipation of demand.

Singapore officials have also been busy working on security and logistics plans, conscious that a postponement could see these put on hold.

But Dr Sue Mi Terry, senior fellow and Korea chair at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, believes the summit will happen "because Mr Trump is so invested in it, although there is a chance it might be postponed".

"He may not mind a heightening of the drama... to increase public interest and, of course, ratings. But I do think Mr Trump has figured out that it is important to lower expectations, after having raised them before, so as to be able to sell whatever comes out of the summit to his supporters," she told The Straits Times.

Mr Trump had also appeared suspicious of China's role, saying Mr Kim appeared to have had a "little change in attitude" since meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping for a second time in just weeks.

"I don't like that," he said. "I have a great relationship with President Xi, he is a friend, but there was a difference when Kim Jong Un left China the second time."

China's Foreign Ministry said yesterday Beijing had played a positive role on the Korean peninsula and hoped the summit will proceed smoothly and achieve results. Said spokesman Lu Kang: "China has always supported and encouraged direct dialogue between the US and North Korea to build mutual trust and reach a political settlement on denuclearisation of the peninsula."

Mr Trump reiterated that he would guarantee Mr Kim's security if he agreed to denuclearise. "He will be safe, he will be happy, his country will be rich," he said. "South Korea, China and Japan - they will be willing to help and I believe invest very, very large sums of money into helping to make North Korea great."

The Dow Jones index dropped 200 points after Mr Trump's remarks cast doubt on the summit.

Meanwhile, North Korea is going ahead with dismantling its remote Punggye-ri nuclear test site, allowing select journalists to witness it.

Said Mr Trump on working with Pyongyang: "It has been a relationship that seems to be working. We will see how long it continues to work."
