Global elites are still reeling from Donald Trump’s historic summit with Kim Jong Un.
Now everyone is wondering what happens next.
That question was answered when Trump and Kim Jong Un agreed to the one thing that no one thought possible.
North Korea’s state run Korean Central News Agency dropped a bombshell report that Trump and Kim Jong Un have agreed to visit each other’s country.
The Korean Central News Agency stated:
“Kim Jong Un invited Trump to visit Pyongyang at a convenient time and Trump invited Kim Jong Un to visit the U.S.,” the report continued “The two top leaders gladly accepted each other’s invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved DPRK-U.S. relations.”
After the historic summit, where Trump and Kim agreed to a process of denuclearization, the media worked overtime to try and portray Trump as a bumbling idiot who failed America.
Journalists immediately tweeted that Trump had foolishly made a major concession by canceling military exercises with South Korea.
But unless you actively hope for war to break out on the Korean Peninsula, canceling military exercises gives away nothing.
Bottom-line: Trump made specific commitments to end military exercises with #SouthKorea & eventually withdraw US forces from peninsula. #NorthKorea made NO specific commitments on timing or verification of denuclearization, also did not give accounting of its nuclear arsenal.

But Trump defended the summit – which was an historic success – by pointing out how he won specific concessions from North Korea on the release of hostages and ending nuclear testing.
The President stated:
“The World has taken a big step back from potential Nuclear catastrophe! No more rocket launches, nuclear testing or research! The hostages are back home with their families. Thank you to Chairman Kim, our day together was historic!”
Trump also ripped his media critics by throwing all their criticisms from the last year about how he would trigger a nuclear war back in their faces, declaring: “A year ago the pundits & talking heads, people that couldn’t do the job before, were begging for conciliation and peace – “please meet, don’t go to war.” Now that we meet and have a great relationship with Kim Jong Un, the same haters shout out, “you shouldn’t meet, do not meet!”
Trump wasn’t just hit from the left.
So-called “conservatives” – especially George W. Bush era neoconservatives – ripped the President for being insufficiently hostile to the North Koreans.
The warmth, the side-by-side flags, the offer of a KJU visit to White House and on and on. Can’t imagine what we’d be saying about Obama or Clinton administrations if things played out this way during their terms…. https://t.co/74UrccrX6h

But liberal activists, like CNN’s pretend journalist Jim Sciutto – who once worked in the Obama administration, and neoconservatives like Dan Senor, miss the point.
The people that backed the disastrous Iran deal and the Iraq War – two of the greatest foreign policy failures in American history – have no room to criticize President Trump.
Both the Bush and the Obama administrations failed to contain the North Korean nuclear menace.
Therefore, President Trump should be afforded the space to allow his policy of maximum pressure and diplomatic engagement to work, rather than be browbeaten by failed hacks who insist he follow their failed playbook.
Results are what will matter.
If President Trump builds a relationship with Kim Jong Un that leads to verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, then he will have achieved one of the greatest diplomatic successes in American history.
