President Trump’s Stunningly Effective North Korea Policy Leaves Professional Diplomatic Corps Gobsmacked…

The statement tonight by South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong is so jaw-dropping in significance it has left the professional diplomatic apparatus stunned.

A year of targeted and strategic geopolitical policy execution by President Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has resulted in North Korean leader Kim Jong-un accepting denuclearization and requesting a meeting with President Trump to achieve terms therein.

Yeah, HO-LEE-CATS is an understatement.  The possibility of a willingly denuclearized Korean peninsular is such an astounding policy victory; it is difficult to conceptualize.  Here’s the statement from South Korea’s Chung Eui-yong:

“Good evening, today I had the privilege of briefing President Trump on my recent visit to Pyongyang, North Korea.  I’d like to thank President Trump, the vice-president and his wonderful national security team, including my close friend General McMaster.” 

“I thanked President Trump that his leadership, and his maximum pressure policy together with international solidarity, brought us to this juncture.  I expressed President Moon Jae-in’s personal gratitude for President Trump’s leadership.”

“I told President Trump that in our meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he is committed to denuclearization. Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests; he understands that the routine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue.  And he expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.”

“President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization.”

“The Republic of Korea along with the United States, Japan and our many partners around the world, remain fully and resolutely committed to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsular.” 

“Along with President Trump we are optimistic about continuing a diplomatic process to test the possibility of a peaceful resolution.   The Republic of Korea, The United States and our partners stand together in insisting that we not repeat the mistakes of the past; and that the pressure will continue until North Korea matches it’s words with concrete actions.  Thank You.”   (link)

Korea Times – North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has expressed willingness to meet U.S. President Donald Trump for talks over denuclearization, South Korean officials visiting Washington said, Friday.

In response, Trump said he would like to meet him by May, they said.

National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong, one of President Moon Jae-in’s envoys to Pyongyang who is now visiting Washington, said in a press briefing at the White House that he delivered such messages of Kim to Trump.

Kim also said he was “committed to denuclearization” and would “refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests,” Chung said. (link)

        That press conference would be a great time for President Trump to announce the information that the MSM will never report on otherwise.

        At the end, he could just say, “Oh by the way, Obama and Hillary are in Gitmo for Treason. Here is the evidence. You can find it on line at White House.gov.” Or whatever the great news is that day. Then he will have to be prepared for the WH servers to stand up to the demand for documents, but I am sure they will be prepared before the announcement.

        • “I’d like to thank President Trump, the vice-president and his wonderful national security team, INCLUDING MY CLOSE FRIEND GENERAL MCMASTER.” — South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong, announcing North Korea Kim Jung-un has agreed to de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula and to meet face-to-face with President Trump within the next two months. (Emphasis mine)

          President Trump continues to play the adversarial MSM like a symphony orchestra. First, he enlists third parties outside the Administration to feed red meat to the MSM. Have them divulge hearsay that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security Advisor General H.R. McMaster think Trump is stupid, irrational, and way out of his depth. Then issue official denials and claim the reports are “fake news.”

          Trump knows the MSM, always eager to undermine him and encourage America’s adversaries, will take the bait every time, e.g. this 04/11/17 report from BuzzFeed News:

          “McMaster bluntly trashed his boss, said the sources, four of whom told BuzzFeed News they heard about the exchange directly from (Oracle C.E.O. Safra) Catz. The top national security official dismissed (President Trump) variously as an ‘idiot’ and a ‘dope’ with the intelligence of a ‘kindergartner,’ the sources said.

          A sixth source who was not familiar with the details of the dinner told BuzzFeed News that McMaster had made similarly derogatory comments about Trump’s intelligence to him in private, including that the president lacked the necessary brainpower to understand the matters before the National Security Council …

          “McMaster’s remarks during the dinner, wherein he also reportedly praised the Iranian nuclear deal, were part of the reason (“staunchly pro-Israel G.O.P. megadonor Sheldon Adelson”) privately bankrolled a campaign to oust him—a charge an Adelson spokesperson denied. Despite the effort, McMaster remained in place, though if Trump takes as much offense to “idiot” and “dope” as he does to “moron,” his job security might be up for debate.”

  3. I think the U.S. Military has a secret weapon that President Trump demonstrated for Kim Jong-Un.

    Perhaps Rods from God.

    The Rods from God are depleted uranium rods sheathed in a ceramic foam shell, which prevents friction-caused searing vaporization during re-entry. The DU rods rely on kinetic energy from gravity acceleration reaching supersonic speeds along a close-to vertical trajectory. Upon impact with the Earth’s surface, the ceramic shell is shattered into powder, while the DU becomes a red-hot searing liquid fire that burns through rock and concrete. Turning into dust and gas, the depleted uranium will ignite the air inside any bunker or tunnel, creating shock waves that cause the roof to cave in.

Is that the reason for the change of heart of the Norks? Probably not. The economic sanctions and the fact that China has turned on them to a degree is REALLY hurting the Norks. That and the steel and aluminum tariffs have upset the Red Panda greatly, and so peace in Korea is on the table as a bargaining chip.

        Without Trump’s successful economic policies against China none of this would be happening. As CTH has stated many times the N.K. threat is there for only one reason, China supports it. China may have to give up a nuke N. Korea but it is only one of a two pronged attack against the world and it’s other initiatives will still need to be countered.

        I found this article about China’s end game, world domination, quite compelling.

      Lil Kim didn’t wake up one morning and decide that instead of threatening to nuke us he was instead going to denuclearize. He is doing this because China is forcing him to, and China is forcing him to because our President has put the screws to them–hard–with a combination of sanctions on NOKO and now the tariffs.
      In the end, NOKO will denuclearize, NAFTA will be fixed, the American economy, particularly manufacturing will get a big boost, and China will settle for a fair trade relationship.

      And while all this is going on, Trump is also working the ME. Look at what the Crown Prince of SA has been doing–all part of the plan. Iran is also going down.

      Usually our side is so eager to start the diplomatic process that we give the concessions just to bring them to the table. Discussions go nowhere after sanctions are eased and gifts given.

      Things were close to war under Clinton than they are now. Carter went to NK and undercut Clinton, forcing Clinton to deal from a weakened position. They made a deal that shut down the reactor and bomb making process we knew of, for all sorts of goodies. But they immediately began on a different process that we did not know of.

      After that it has been craven collapse at every threat, paying to bring NK to the table and declaring victory for the process while nothing stops in NK. But not under Trump.

      Trump has denied Carter a chance to do the same to him. We have not yet made concessions or gifts that we know of. I worry what SK may have promised, but I am reassured that sanctions are still in force.

      So this looks different. It has the potential to be the same old, so we are justifiably cautious, but it does look different.

      We could of course resort to the standard craven behavior at any time, but our difference is Trump who I do not believe will accept making phony deals just to look good while passing on the buck to the next president.

      The lefty SK president has ideological needs to try and look good, and him I worry about. He is our weak point.

      But no bomb testing, no missile testing, and SK/US war games declared acceptable just to bring Trump to the table? That is a big difference.

      I worked for a guy, who I would work for again in a heartbeat, that would never ask a question for which he already did not have the answer. I was fortunate enough to see this in action during some meetings where I did not report to him directly prior to when I did work for him directly. I was always, ALWAYS prepared for his meetings. If I did not have the answer, there was no way I was going to try to blow smoke; I said I did not know and I would get an answer as quickly as possible. He always appreciated that, and told me on more than one occasion. I always felt a little bit of malicious happiness when I saw others try to blow smoke and then squirm because they didn’t understand this guy. Some people never learned, others took a long time. Those that never learned were usually gone after a while.

      President Trump has been preparing for this for 30 years, or longer. Guyski is right; it is the responsibility of the other people to be ready. Trump is already ready. He has the plan and knows all the answers to the questions he will ask and the demands to be put on the table.

    I know that Trump is 10 moves ahead of everyone, but accepting a meeting, even merely announcing it, is risky. Even if Un leaves with no agreement, he becomes infinitely more powerful because he was able to get PDJT to meet him. Just think how he can spin that in his back yard.

    To that end, it may be even more beneficial for Un to meet and fail to agree. He could just get an offer from PDJT and shop it to China and (muh) Russia and Iran.

He knows that they ONLY way to survive is to get rid of his entire nuclear program and he better move fast because the sanctions aren’t coming off until he actually does it. President Trump, on the other hand, is in NO hurry. Kims regime can crumble for all Trump cares. What I found VERY telling is that Kim has figured out a way to spin the denuclearization to his people who consider the Kim family gods. He told South Korea that denuclearization of the Korean peninsula had been his fathers dying wish! He will be honoring his father and fullfilling his final wish by getting rid of the nukes. It’s a done deal except for the details about how North Koreas security will be ensured. I’m confidant President Trump already had a team figure out how to do that. Bottom line, it’s already a done deal. We’re now in the public theatre/marketting phase.

  28. ZERO chance the NORKs will give up their nukes. Little rocket man is aching for the opportunity to play the US like his father did. I hope our President is wise enough to see through his insincerity.

      Trump is not interested in just talking about the weather. He wants results and little Rocket Man is now between a rock and a hard place and willing to make concessions like denuclearizing the northern peninsula.

      These upcoming negotiations are similar to Reagan’s dealing with the old Evil Empire. He trashed the old SALT (Strategic Arms LIMITATION Treaty) talking points and went straight to negotiating START (Strategic Arms REDUCTION Treaty) thus making the world a safer place.

    Just rereading this article and I laughed out loud at Samantha Vinograd’s tweet. I don’t know who she is, her bio lists her as a former senior advisor to an Obama advisor. 🙂 What did she do, carry a bunch of papers around? And now she’s a CNN fake news analyst? Her comment (“There’s no way Trump will be ready for this meeting, waaaaaah!”) reminds me of that wonderful video of Obama proclaiming that manufacturing jobs are never coming back. Negativity founded on pure ignorance. Don’t these people feel stupid continually being wrong?

  30. Somehow, this seems to connect with Xi’s lifetime appointment as President. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Remember when Obama said to the Ruskies that I’ll have more flexibility after the elections? Well. Xi will no longer be subjected to those pesky ‘elections’. Just a thought, nothing more, nothing less.

    The Goal of all parties should be re-unification under the government of S. Korea, perhaps using the German re-unification experience as a template for what to do, and what not to do.
    It should be done under a constitutional republic, guarantees everyone their rights.
    Perhaps a third country like Taiwan could allow any N. Korean officials permanent residence with their families and generous bank accounts.

      It’s none of our business whether North and South Korea unite. Thank God President Trump realizes this. Hopefully anyone in Korea considering reunification will first study the horror inflicted on West Germnay after they reunited with East Germany.

    “There is no way that President Trump can be ready, by May, to have a high stakes negotiation on denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, it’s just impossible. … You can’t wing it.”

    HAHAHA! They think Trump wasn’t planning on this already? He actually steered everything to happen just like this for quite a long time. This is the thing he caused to happen. And to think he doesn’t also have a plan and vision for the outcome of the meetings?

    These people are projecting their own cluelessness onto the president because those arrogant idiots can’t imagine anyone being smarter than they are.

    Not to be deterred I expect the Diplomatic Corps (or is that corpse) will say this is a result of 50 years of subtle diplomacy, for which they should receive all credit. The media, as is their wont, will give all credit to Barry saying none of this would have been possible but for his previous eight years of whatever—and Trump, of course, had nothing to do with it.

    The Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee are holding up the Nominations of the 2 most important people President Trump and Sec Tillerson need to have in place for the N. Korea talks. They had their hearings on Feb 15, 2018.

    Asst Secretary of Asian Affairs
    Asst Secretary for Nuclear Arms

    National Security means NOTHING to these Leftists – they have procedural holds on these people and yammered in the hearings about fossil fuels and State Dept budget cuts to social programs.

    Democrats are DANGEROUS to our National Security with their petty issues and obstruction.

    Gotta love CNN making fools of themselves and not even realizing it. Hey Samantha, it’s called gaming out scenarios and preparing. Don’t you worry your pretty little head over this, I’m sure our POTUS had this figured out before he announced his intention to run for office. It just takes a while for things to unfold. Why don’t you stick to reading from your teleprompter, because speaking about things of complexity really isn’t your strong suit. The grownups got this…

    Maybe someone should warn the GOPe to keep their mouths shut this time. After Ryan opens his yap about trade wars, and then Trump outflanks him by offering to exempt NAFTA partners temporarily, and then the next day we see 300K new jobs… How does Trump’s a$$ taste, Paul?

    Here’s a clue, Paul: let the Manager coach the team, and you just try to do a decent job at second base, okay?

    Is it just me or is anyone else getting the feeling that our government (the Swamp) doesn’t really want to accomplish anything. It’s just easier to kick the can down the road and take credit for looking like something was done. Meanwhile the gov functions like a sluggish machine and the operators are able to work the system to enrich themselves and pretend they are serving us. This sham has been going on so much longer than I have even been alive. The longer I live the more I see that we have spent more than 100 years in this situation. What is even worse is that there are more ways to Sunday to expand the growth of the Swamp and we have tolerated this. Mercifully Donald Trump is showing the country and the world what works and that we expect this same behavior in our elected officials. He’s the model for excellence and accomplishment. He stepped forward at the right time. I pray that others of the same calibre will soon be doing the same.

      Some people don’t like the idea of our president giving him that. If that’s what he (Kim) wants in return for giving our great leader everything he wants, for us and South Korea, well then…
      Remember Rodman kept saying that Kim wanted Obama to call him? I’m glad he didn’t, because he would have given away the store, but Kim was looking for that way back then.

    She was worried about President Trump’s Korea policy to the point where she was stuffing the newspaper in the trash. Not good.
    Finding out that all along he had this all along, that in fact his judgement was better than that of an aging has-been attention-seeking starlet, is likely to cause her head to explode.
    Be aware. Threat level gray.

  50. Dear Samantha Vinograd,
    It is perfectly understandable that you and your ilk (career government dweebs and wonks) would take months working with Obama for even the most basic meetings. That’s what dweebs and wonks do. They take forever to accomplish the most simple of tasks, if they accomplish anything at all. Consider this: President Trump enters the room with Pudgy Dictator after all the reporters and cameras are gone and says, “You’ve got 6 months to allow our American inspectors to be shown irrefutable evidence that you have destroyed all nuke capable systems and are no longer capable of producing a nuclear weapon of any sort, or we will first financially and then militarily crush you and every human you know into cinders and salt. However, when these goals are met, we will help you into the 21st century. You want another piece of pie?”

      We all know by now that our VSG POTUS is different, something we have never seen before. That different. Maybe President Trump didn’t do it that way. Maybe President Trump made a win-win deal while becoming good friends with the ‘pudgy dictator’. Expand our thinking.
