According to Fox News, President Donald Trump spoke to a crowd of supporters in Michigan on Saturday night, delivering wide-ranging remarks on topics including his role in denuclearizing North Korea; the treatment received by his Veterans Affairs pick, Adm. Ronny Jackson, which Trump termed “a disgrace”; and his decision to again skip the annual White House Correspondents’ dinner.
“You may have heard, I was invited to another event tonight, the White House Correspondents’ dinner,” Trump said as the crowd booed in response. “But I’d much rather be in Washington, Michigan, than in Washington, D.C., right now.”
“If we would’ve said where we are today from three or four months ago, remember they were saying, ‘He’s going to get us into nuclear war,’ they said,” Trump recalled. “No, no, no. … Strength is going to keep us out of nuclear war, not gonna get us in,” President Trump said during the rally.
His ‘tough talk’ that had liberals grabbing their blankies- clearly paying off as historic meetings are finally coming to fruition. So it’s time for Trump’s critics to concede.
As Reported By Josh Smith With Reuters:
At their first summit in more than a decade on Friday, the leaders of North and South Korea held hands, planted a tree, and signed a pledge to pursue peace on the peninsula.
The heavy symbolism of the night was the culmination of more than three months of efforts by both Koreas to change the political tone after last year’s missile tests and military threats.
What that change of tone means for the prospect of long-term peace on the peninsula is still an open question. Analysts say South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will have to nurture the reduced tensions into concrete moves.
Skeptics view Kim’s overtures as a duplicitous attempt to buy time, while others argue any real peace deal requires talking to the North Koreans.
Many of the thorniest issues, however, can’t be solved by the two Koreas alone, leaving their leaders to focus on inter-Korean relations while trying to set the stage for Kim’s expected summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.
