Last night was spent watching the “morning” in Singapore as the leader of North Korea met one-on-one with President Donald Trump. Even the most optimistic student of history has to be amazed at just how amazing this meeting and friendly handshake is after years (decades) of the hermit kingdom ignoring and thumbing their nose at the west. I think those who even oppose Trump would like to see some movement towards peace and denuclearization of the Korean peninsula — it sure would be a positive.
The two leaders met for the first time at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island in Singapore.
“I feel really great. We’re gonna have a great discussion and I think tremendous success,” Trump told reporters on Monday. “It will be tremendously successful and it’s my honor and we will have a terrific relationship. I have no doubt.”
This is the first meeting between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader wowing even Trump’s toughest critics.
“Well it was not easy to get here,” Kim Jong Un said. “The past (inaudible) and old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles, but we overcame all of them and are here today” he said.
