          in reference to the image – his name plate front and center

          if you believe that then you are not paying attention.. Bannon & Gorka started that whole McMasters Javanka crap – they did not get along and that is why they got tossed out the door.

          And, Kushers wife, President Trumps daughter, is on that trip. Kushner is not a liability, unless you are in favor of Israel surrendering, or believe the CNN, MSM,Russian collusion bs. Stand proud and tall Trump family!

      I have been up on the DMZ for military maneuvers and also at Panmunjom (the demarcation line between the North and South). Those places are very bleak indeed. Most of the trees have been cut down on the ground, hills and mountain ridges for the purposes of detection and sight for firing of weapons. Our compound was 5 air miles South of the DMZ. The ridge to the west of our base had no trees and had underground concrete bunkers towards the top. Due to the nature of the NK regime’s belligerent nature early morning alerts were used for reediness drills. There is nothing like being woken up and groggy at 4am grabbing your gear and weapon then heading South into the mountains to sit on top of a ridge line. There were so many NK artillery, rockets and such close to the DMZ you could have steel raining down on you just about anywhere. .

    Very powerful. Great plan to compare and contrast the north and south. Also a wise choice was reciting the south’s accomplishments and successes. He built the Poles up in the speech in Poland as well. His years of deal-making have engrained this in him. Puts them in a position to desire compromise. God bless you, President Trump. You make us proud every day.

      Landslide…you wrote about reciting the south’s accomplishments and yet I think it was also to educate our nations…perhaps the world. Truthfully, many of those Asian cities put ours to shame. Ours look worn, old and almost decrepit compared to so many others, what is the last outstanding building you can name,,,Shanghai is filled with one amazing skyscraper after another. The transportation systems are superior (and sparkling clean). Airports are amazing. I have friends on a 3-year assignment in Soul and love living there. As well, I think POTUS educated the world on the horrific lives of those poor souls trapped in Korea. I’m sure many viewers thought at least a couple times…wow, I didn’t know that. Not the usual meaningless platitudes.

      Never-Trumpers are so pathetic.
      In my more Christian moments, I feel pity for all the lost souls who cannot enjoy being in the middle of such rich History.
      Thank you God for giving us this man , this agent of change.

    Wow! What an incredible speech! Our President painted such a contrasting picture between South Korea 🇰🇷 and North Korea 🇰🇵. The Rocketman 🚀 was given a choice this evening. Either you decide to join the world or you will die.

    I hope President Xi was listening. The games are over! This either ends or we destroy your economy by walking away and doing business with India 🇮🇳. Xi will be given a week to decide.

    I noted that viewership on The White House feed never got to even 5,000. Citizens not being willing to expend even an hour on a major policy speech that affects the entire world…amazing. Wonder what the viewership was elsewhere.

    I was completely blown to bits by the NK statistics President Trump revealed. It should rock everyone’s equilibrium.

    How does the Body Earth allow this atrocity to go on? President Trump is correct. How do China, Germany, South Korea, Japan, the Western Civilization and we allow this to go on? It would be like living next door to Hitler for 60 years before he decided to even invade another country.

    Astonishing…

    Thank you, President Trump, for putting the horror so simply and plainly before us. I bet a lot of South Koreans will go home tonight and re-read this speech. I saw a lot of thumbs up and enthusiastic gestures when POTUS started to shake hands after the speech. It was profound.

    In my opinion the subtext running through this magnificent speech was directed at China. After all, the sacrifice of the US, SK and UN troops was due to China entering the conflict to support that murderous regime, and although Xi has made some steps to change that, they still support it.

    When the President said,”Your wealth is measured in more than money—it is measured in achievements of the mind and achievements of spirit.”, I also see that as a reminder to Pres Xi, who has come out of the NPC and heralded as the new “world leader” of the “new Chinese world order”, that for all the money he has used to bribe, pay and even steal influence in the world for his “Chinese dream”, is but ashes, unless he unequivocally stands up to Kim and his regime.

      It’s definitely getting harder for China to appear to be supporting NK in any form or fashion.

      It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.

      The Chinese are practical and they’re going to have to figure out what’s in their best interest practically speaking.

      Bet they’ll choose Trump. Fingers crossed.

    That was one heck of a speech. Drawing that contrast between the two Koreas was genius and so effective.

    And yes, it is a call to all of humanity for allowing North Korea to do this to their own people.

    Hmm.. you could draw some comparisons.. “One People.. Two Koreas..”.

    “One People.. Two Americas..”..

    No explanation needed.. Just replace the two in Sir Trump’s speech to know what road the Leftists are on and what they want to do to America and Americans..

    The Leftists harbor a vile consuming hatred and are bent on destroying this Country.. And there is no rehabilitation for them.. LMD (Liberalism Mental Disorder), similar to hoarding disorders, has no known successful therapy.. They cannot comprehend the faults of their own socially destructive failure mechanisms; They see their behavior and ideology as normal..

    In their convoluted contorted minds they have fashioned a path to rationalize their destructive behavior to achieve their phantasmic desired result – and think that we are the problem, preventing them from reaching their goal.. Mere obstacles that are standing in their way – and they have no room for parity or parlay..

    Fourth Turning..
