    Backwards.

    How? By halting something that can immediately be started up again?

    Do you even know what a negotiation is?

    ya know, it's just plain bizarre how you make a claim and then try to say it's "leftist" saying it. Are leftist controlling what you post?

    Do you pay ANY attention to the news AT ALL?? Peter Navarro, one of the President's top economic advisers, just said that "there is a SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL" for Canada's leader Justin Trudeau!

    Now tell us, genius, when has that kind of language EVER been used about the leader of one of America's closest 'allies' before?

    My post was in response to YOUR claim that we needed to bring our troops (from Korea) home and post them ON OUR BORDER! Well, WHICH border, genius???

    So we give a tangible concession, and our orange commander in chief has extracted, in return, a promise of thinking about doing something which is the same promise that has been made before and broken.

    Oh, but it gets even better. Apparently, South Korea had no idea this concession was given, and was totally taken by surprise. Even Mattis opposed suspending such joint exercises.

    Shockingly, it appears that our president cozied up to a dictator, gave them what they wanted including attention and what appears to be peerage, fucked over our allies, and got nothing in return except hollow rhetoric.

    The US has agreed to suspend military exercises with South Korea in return for a commitment to denuclearisation from North Korea, Donald Trump has announced, after a meeting with Kim Jong-un in Singapore.


    Trump said the war games were expensive and “very provocative”. Stopping them is a major concession, something the US has previously rejected as non-negotiable on the grounds that the exercises are a key element of its military alliance with Seoul, and maintaining a deterrent against North Korea.


    In return, the US president said Kim had agreed in a joint statement to reassert “his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula”.
    No matter what Trump does your partisan hate will not allow you to support it. If Obama had done this you would praise it as the best negotiation ever

    As is the above.

    That being said, in the last week, Trump cozied up to a dictator, and did everything possible to piss off our long time allies. Seems a rather dick move on his part.
