President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un are both in Hanoi, but the reality of the result is anyone’s guess as the summit gets rolling today. Still, Mr. Trump says that North Korea could be an economic powerhouse…if only it gives up its nuclear weapons.
Later taking to Twitter, Trump noted that Vietnam is thriving and that North Korea could very easily do the same thing. “Vietnam is thriving like few places on earth. North Korea would be the same, and very quickly, if it would denuclearize,” he writes. “The potential is AWESOME, a great opportunity, like almost none other in history, for my friend Kim Jong Un. We will know fairly soon - Very Interesting!"
He also slammed Democrats for giving their opinions about what he should do in his meeting with the diminutive dictator. “The Democrats should stop talking about what I should do with North Korea,” he adds. “And ask themselves instead why they didn’t do “it” during eight years of the Obama Administration?”
