Months of self-promotion and bluster end in a total flop.

By Trump’s own yardstick, NKorea pact falls flat
[apnews.com]
SINGAPORE (AP) — After all the hype, all the vows to tackle what’s perhaps the world’s most urgent crisis, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un fell short of the kind of deal the U.S. president himself has long said is needed to settle the North’s decadeslong pursuit of nuclear weapons.

For months, Trump has been railing against presidents past, accusing them of an inexcusable failure to solve the nuclear threat emanating from the North. On Tuesday, he patted himself on the back for signing a “comprehensive” pact with Kim paving a path toward denuclearization, but the contours appeared far weaker than even his predecessors’ failed deals.

Rather than a detailed statement filled with concrete restraints on the North, the document seemed to amount mostly to a restatement of long-assumed principles and an agreement to keep talking. And Trump made dramatic on-the-spot concessions to Kim that his own advisers had urged him against, including a halt on “provocative” U.S.-South Korea military exercises and an admission he could be willing to withdraw U.S. troops from South Korea in the future.

a particularly disgusting moment:
Trump brushed off questions about his public praise for an autocrat whose people have been oppressed for decades. He added that Otto Warmbier, an American once detained in North Korea, “did not die in vain” because his death brought about the nuclear talks.

and what's next?
China suggested on Tuesday that sanctions relief could be considered for North Korea if the country abides by United Nations resolutions, as U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un pledged to work for denuclearization.

And of course, Blonde Fredo has a word... [qz.com]
No one in China knows the “Chinese proverb” Ivanka Trump tweeted for the US-North Korea summit...In 2015, the blog Quote Investigator wrote that the quote Ivanka tweeted seemed to have evolved from a comment that appeared in a Chicago periodical in the 20th century about how society innovates and changes. A pseudo-Confucian version was fabricated in 1962—perhaps explaining why Ivanka believed it was a Chinese proverb.

“Those who say it can not be done, should not interrupt those doing it.” -Chinese Proverb

We agreed to stop protecting South Korea and to extend protections to the North Korean authoritarian regime.

They agreed to... plan to do stuff at a later date.

And we have this "comprehensive" written agreement:

1. The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

Has Iran asked for a new tough deal like this to replace "the worst deal ever"?

I really like this dog and pony show.

Trump said to Kim, “It’s an honor to be with you, it's a great honor.”

It's an honor for the President of the United States to meet the murdering despot of a country with no human rights or even enough food? Geez, too bad Pol Pot is dead, Trump would adore him.

good comment:

"Did Trump goobers imagine on election night that they would be worshiping the leader of North Korea as "Very honorable?" while hooting in glee as the Trump administration says the leader of a democratic ally should go to hell?"

Devoid of content, perhaps, but not effect:

President Trump’s pledge on Tuesday to cancel military exercises on the Korean Peninsula surprised not only allies in South Korea but also the Pentagon.

In Washington, officials at the Pentagon, State Department and White House were scrambling to figure out exactly the impact of Mr. Trump’s comments.

Mr. Trump’s promise to end joint military exercises with Seoul left many South Koreans stunned. The annual exercises have been an integral part of the alliance, forming the bulwark of South Korea’s defense against North Korea and Seoul’s sense of security among bigger powers in the region.

Only a few months ago, the Beijing-Pyongyang relationship was on the rocks. But Xi and Kim have patched things up, coordinated their strategy and now – thanks to Trump – achieved their desired summit outcome...

“Eroding trust in U.S. alliances is a key win for Xi Jinping,” [director of the Centre for Russia Europe Asia Studies Theresa] Fallon said. “Beijing wanted ‘freeze for freeze’ and no joint exercises, which is exactly what Trump delivered for apparently no trade-off whatsoever. So much for art of the deal.

If this is true, it sure seems like it is going to be significant:

[talkingpointsmemo.com]

North Korea’s state news agency KCNA reported Wednesday (local time) that US President Donald Trump agreed to lift sanctions on North Korea, in addition to agreeing to halt military exercises and other security guarantees.

According to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency, KCNA reported: “Trump expressed his intention to halt the U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises, which the DPRK side regards as provocation, over a period of good-will dialogue between the DPRK and the U.S., offer security guarantees to the DPRK and lift sanctions against it along with advance in improving the mutual relationship through dialogue and negotiation.”

There was no immediate comment or confirmation from the White House.

Trump has a habit of making promises in private that he has no intention of keeping.

This is why his advisors (and attorneys) meet with him in pairs. To have witnesses.
