    Trump - "I don't think I have to prepare"

    Donald Trump on Thursday said he doesn’t feel a need to prepare for his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, arguing that that the delicate and high-stakes negotiations over denuclearization will be based more on “attitude" than legwork.

    In extensive remarks during a visit from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump mused about what might come out of the Singapore summit scheduled for next week, telling reporters that he’s “totally” prepared to walk away from the negotiating table, that he's holding out hope for normalized relations with the repressive regime, that the U.S. could strike an agreement to formally end the Korean War, and that he could see hosting Kim in America if the meeting goes well.

    Despite his ambitious agenda, Trump also said he doesn’t feel the need to do much prep work.

    “I think I'm very well prepared. I don't think I have to prepare very much. It's about attitude, it's about willingness to get things done, but I think I've been preparing for this summit for a long time, as has the other side,” Trump said with Abe by his side. “I think they've been preparing for a long time also. So this isn't a question of preparation, it's a question of whether or not people want it to happen, and we'll know that very quickly.”

    Yeah, well if you can't even get the War of 1812 right and your going to a high stakes meeting with NK - what could possible go wrong?

    Again, shows that he thinks that "He Alone Can Do It"

    Idiot.

    And this

    National security adviser John Bolton has yet to convene a Cabinet-level meeting to discuss President Donald Trump’s upcoming summit with North Korea next week, a striking break from past practice that suggests the Trump White House is largely improvising its approach to the unprecedented nuclear talks.

    For decades, top presidential advisers have used a methodical process to hash out national security issues before offering the president a menu of options for key decisions. On an issue like North Korea, that would mean White House Situation Room gatherings of the secretaries of state and defense along with top intelligence officials, the United Nations ambassador, and even the Treasury secretary, who oversees economic sanctions.

    But since Trump agreed on a whim to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on March 8, the White House’s summit planning has been unstructured, according to a half-dozen administration officials. Trump himself has driven the preparation almost exclusively on his own, consulting little with his national security team beyond Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has made two visits to Pyongyang to meet with Kim personally. Trump has also not presided personally over a meeting of those senior NSC officials, as a president typically does when making the most important decisions.

    Senior officials from both the Barack Obama and George W. Bush administrations called the absence of a formal interagency process before such a consequential meeting troubling. Peter Feaver, a former National Security Council official in the Bush White House, said his colleagues would likely have held "quite a few" meetings of the so-called Principals Committee of Cabinet-level NSC members in a comparable situation. A former top Obama White House official echoed that point, calling the lack of top-level NSC meetings “shocking.”

    How you all keep falling for it cracks me up. Of course he is going to prepare. This is gamesmanship and marketing.

    Not to worry. Donald Trump knows more about ISIS than the generals do. He knows more about North Korea than the diplomats do. And he knows more about the War of 1912 than the historians do.

    See?!? Those stupid historians don't even have their dates right!! It WAS in 1912 when those vicious Canadians launched their SNEAK attack and invaded the United States and BURNED the White House to the ground, forcing Dolly Madison to flee for the hills!

    Which is what you would say to excuse an idiotic remark by a high school kid acting like an ass on Facebook.

    Yet the article says the complete opposite. And Bolton has NOT held a cabinet meeting.

    I mean, what could wrong?

    Unlike Obama, Trump can think on his feet. Obama was a blithering idiot if he wasn't reading a teleprompter.
