President Trump is what the Shock Exchange would describe as “mercurial.” When President Obama was in office Trump chastised him for even thinking about negotiating with North Korea. Once Trump got into office not only did he meet with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, but he celebrated it as a superb act of diplomacy. The recent meetings with Kim Jong Un were to be applauded. It showed that the U.S. and North Korea could have a dialogue over tamping down North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, and potentially relaxing some of the trade restrictions that are strangling the peninsula’s economy.
Now the president is claiming he single-handedly save the U.S. from with North Korea:
Many good conversations with North Korea-it is going well! In the meantime, no Rocket Launches or Nuclear Testing in 8 months. All of Asia is thrilled. Only the Opposition Party, which includes the Fake News, is complaining. If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!
