President Trump confirmed this morning that CIA Director Mike Pompeo had a secret meeting last week with dictator Kim Jong-Un to lay the groundwork for a summit to denuclearize North Korea. Trump tweeted that the “meeting went very smoothly and a good relationship was formed. Details of Summit are being worked out now.”
Wait, wasn't Trump standing up to Kim going to plunge us into nuclear Armageddon? Why, it went against the expert advice of all the striped-pants diplomats whose talents for appeasement and groveling had resulted in North Korea having nuclear weapons in the first place. So how come Kim is now holding secret meetings to negotiate giving up his nukes, while the President of South Korea is crediting Trump with making it happen?
I’d love to hear some answers to those questions, but I expect that CNN will spend the next 48 hours demanding a special prosecutor to investigate the secret meeting and find out if there was any “collusion.”
