    I believe that people underestimate Trump diplomacy. Trump believe peace can only be obtain through strength. The best way to stop a bully is to punch them right in the face. At the end of the day, Trump proved that he is not a war president through his term, despite all the harsh words or the act.

    I mean did you want Trump to just give in? just like every other president that has talks with north korea. If we keep feeding them its jsut going to get worse. It stated in the video near the start its what theyve done for decades. Escalate, escalate further for shock, offer peace in return for economic aid. Nothing will change if he were to simply just give in.

    The thumbnail shows the biggest 'fake' handshake in the world. There's no friendship there from the great leader and there's no respite from hardships for his people. The nuclear weapons projects will go on for the empty plates at dinnertime for his people. The hostility and torture will continue as always. The world's largest prison is fully open!
