Trump Tweeting Foreign Policy Now

Filed under: International — DRJ @ 9:52 am



[Headline from DRJ]

Trump ended the G20 by making more news about Russia:

A Russia 24 television reporter approached Trump during a morning event and asked, “Mr. Trump, how did you like your meeting with President Putin?”

Trump responded: “He is a great guy. I think we had a really good meeting. I think he is a good person, we started discussing trade. I think we should have trade between Russia and USA, two great countries. We had a great meeting yesterday. He is a terrific person. Thank you very much.”

And about the Koreas:

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has been one of the most enthusiastic proponents for peace between the US and North Korea.

He is currently attending the G20 alongside other world leaders, including US President Donald Trump, who earlier today tweeted out an invitation to North Korea’s Kim Jong Un to meet him in the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas.

It’s not known whether Moon was aware of Trump’s invitation before it was issued, but the South Korean Blue House confirmed that Trump had brought it up with Moon on Saturday morning.

Walking up to Moon in the G20 coffee lounge, Trump asked, “Have you seen my tweet?”

    Trump has many flaws, but ingratitude isn’t one of them.

  2. His lithium kicked in; his presser was impressive… by Trump standards. And, course, entertaining.

  3. Oh he’s definitely up for attention. Such a good time to be an enemy of the USA, huh

    Yeah, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, all of the traditional American enemies.

  5. His presser performance was surprisingly even,lengthy and non-combative. T’was either the lithium… or jet-lag.

  6. It’s the modern world. I bet some were shocked when FDR used radio.

  7. Trump talking about people is like a Hollywood PR agent talking about a new movie. It’s great! Best ever! Which may mean that everyone hates it.

  8. He’s Putin’s little b!tch.

    And proud of it.

    FDR’s fireside chats were politically smart and reassured the public, but the Library of Congress recounts how they were carefully prepared and discussed beforehand.

  10. PDJT continues to run circles around his media and political critics (redundancy alert) much to the delight of the Deplorables. His use of available media confounds all who just never got his schtick.

  11. Lithium? Dont hold out DCSCA, what do you know? Does he spazz out on the floor like julius caesar? No wonder he wants the far more medicated Biden as the other side’s nominee.

  14. #10: So, the nuttier Trump sounds, the more successfully he’s “running circles around” all those who think the president should know what he’s talking about and be able to put thoughts together in a rational way?
    “You just don’t get it” has been an all-purpose Trumpista defense from the beginning. I.e. the rest of us are too dimwitted or “deranged” to grasp the singular genius of Trump. That argument tends to come from people who are mightily offended when anyone dares to question the intelligence of their judgment.

  15. @8. Our Captain is 6’2″; PoottiePie is a mere 5’7″.

    But if you’re talkin’ ’bout somebody’s paper trained b!tch, opinionator Tucka was there at the DMZ for the walkies and talkies; a genuine pooper scooper be he.

  16. @11. Meh. JoeyBee’s like the guest star on nearly every episode of ‘Combat!’; they’re out of the squad, one way or another, by the time the final credits roll.

  17. Cant wait to start laughing at all the no trumpers who will appear here stating Trump is a North Korean spy and since you nitwits think he is a Russian spy does that make him a double agent? Fricking moronic diatribe from the hate America first flock.

  18. Mittens magic underwear would be schiff stained thinking about meeting at the DMZ.

  19. The Orange Skinned Pansy elevated a two-bit sh!thole tinpot into a world leader, and all his podex osculators would have us think that it’s praiseworthy. What a bunch of clowns!

  20. The oranges skinned pansy wants to help the North Korean people. And if he gets some prime land for golf links, God Bless Him.

  21. This meeting with the North Korean dictator was a good move, although a limited one. First, he got to see where he stood. Kim Jong Un is still afraid of him. He asked for, and got, acommand appearace from Kim Jong Un. So the situation remains stable.

    BTW, TIME Magazine ran a cover story this week that explained what the red button on Trump’s desk really is for:

    https://time.com/longform/donald-trump-2020

    He has invited a group of TIME journalists for an interview, blown past the allotted time and settled in for a wide-ranging discussion. Along the way, he orders a Diet Coke with ice with the push of a small red button set into a wooden box on the desk, and directs an aide to fetch a copy of a hand-delivered birthday letter sent from Kim Jong Un.

    It sounds like that red button also got that letter from Kim Jong Un, so possibly it is multipurpose. Anything from getting a Diet Coke to…who knows what?

    This is a transcript of the interview:

  22. @19. Yet quite telegenic; particularly the sure-to-be-Emmy-nominated-smiling-side-glances to the searching pool camera by our Captain. Hello ATAS: for your consideration!
