    "Donald Trump Has Successfully Cleaned Up North Korea's Brand"

    "Only a couple months ago, North Korea’s brand was synonymous with some of the worst and most menacing threats to global stability. Horrendous human rights violations. The prospect of nuclear war. Debilitating cyberattacks."

    "The summit has significantly strengthened North Korea’s brand. They got conditional re-admittance to the respected community of nations."

    "The most enduring result of the summit may well be that North Korea emerges with a significantly enhanced global image. They are now viewed as a relatively reasonable and even respected actor on the world stage. In all likelihood, the country will enjoy this position while still retaining its nuclear weapons."

    http://time.com/5309862/trump-kim-north-korea-brand/?utm_source=time.com&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign =the-brief-pm&utm_content=2018061217pm&xid=newsletter-brief&eminfo=%7b"EMAIL"%3a"um7IbVutPWteX51YozjDUns Visiw%2b%2b5u"%2c"BRAND"%3a"TD"%2c"CONTENT"%3a"New sletter"%2c"UID"%3a"TD_TBP_87D2F5A1-CF15-43CE-BFB6-A7A0B2D8F390"%2c"SUBID"%3a"84462761"%2c"JOBID"%3a" 772666"%2c"NEWSLETTER"%3a"THE_BRIEF_PM"%2c"ZIP"%3a "132192202"%2c"COUNTRY"%3a""%7d

    So Kim got legitimacy, a postponement of US/South Korea military operations, a US commitment to lesson sanctions while offering the prospect of substantial outside aid and investment

    Other than another promise to denuclearize, what substantially did the great dealer maker get for the US?

    Even being optimistic, how did it insure an "era of Asian peace?"

    It’s always fun to see how much you will explode the importance of his minor accomplishments and mount fact free attacks on anyone who dissents.

    Trump has averted war (for now) and given NK an opportunity to become part of the civilized world.

    The ball is in NK's court. If they play nice, they'll be treated well. If they return to their old ways, they'll be vaporized.

    I'm not interested in wasting my time.

    Your TDS will prevent you from recognizing any success, regardless of how obvious.

    The question was an honest one. What did Trump get that Clinton in '94 and Bush in '05 didn't get? Three times now NK has agreed to disarm, and twice they have been caught lying about it. And you think your orange savior scored some actual points? LOL! This is the same game that NK has been playing with the West for decades, but your adulation of Trump blinds you to the realities of history.

    Lol vaporized? Are you serious with this garbage? Let me clue you in. The United States is no longer a great enough superpower to unilaterally nuke a country and not set off a nuclear war, nor is it powerful enough to WIN such a war in any way that resembles a meaningful victory.

    Nuclear attacks are bad. MAD means that whoever start chucking nukes is guaranteed surefire death. We would essentially be destroying ourselves to show Kim how badass serious we are. Brilliant.

    Opening negotiations and good will is a huge step forward. Trump has obviously studied the Asian culture and the way business is done there.

    And, a green light for nukes.

    But, President Trump is the inexperienced one, right?

    Get ready .....

    More head exploding on the way.

    Did Trump lift sanctions and give money to NK like others gave? Guess I missed that.
