Another Trump Miracle: North Korea and South Korea Meet to Bring “Peace to the Peninsula”
Guest post by Joe Hoft
A few months ago the media was saying that President Trump was fast creating World War III.
Today the two Korean Leaders met to end the Korean War and to negotiate a complete Korean denuclearization.
Today in Asia comes the biggest news in 60 years –
The leaders of North and South Korea have pledged to jointly eliminate the risk of war and work together to achieve complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
The joint statement Friday, from the border truce village of Panmunjom, concluded a historic one-day bilateral summit aimed at achieving peace between the two adversarial nations for the first time in more than sixty years. The meeting of the Korean leaders was the first in more than a decade.
The statement was released during the signing of a pact between South Korean President Moon Jae-In and his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong Un seeking to establish a “permanent” and “solid” peace on the Peninsula.
President Trump’s actions led to today’s meeting but many said that the President was going to start World War III after his comments and tweets towards North Korea’s leader ‘rocket man’ Kim Jong Un, tweeting, “Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail.”

One of the President’s greatest tweets was towards, the North Korean leader, “Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!”

After this, Trump lovers declared the President ‘the king of Twitter’ but Trump haters called him ‘mad’. The far left liberal Huffington Post reported –
President Donald Trump launched into a wild Twitter rant on Saturday after a statement from North Korea referred to him as an “old lunatic.”
“Why would Kim Jong Un insult me by calling me ‘old,’ when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat?’,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
The president has, however, repeatedly referred to the North Korean leader as a “little rocket man.”
Another far left media site, Politico, quoted an official from the failed Obama administration, stating that President Trump’s rhetoric with Kim Jong Un places the US at the brink of World War III –
U.S. military officials increasingly worry that a mistake or miscommunication — even more than an intentional act of war — could start a nuclear conflict in Korea.
A North Korean provocation, a U.S. warning shot, malicious hackers or a simple accident could be the cause that starts a new war between two nations with a long history of tensions and suspicion.
“Miscalculation is now at a stage [that is] higher than probably any time since the Cuban missile crisis,” former Obama administration Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said days after President Donald Trump boasted on Twitter that his nuclear button is “a much bigger & more powerful one” than Kim Jong Un’s.
