President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un Initial Meeting Remarks – Transcript and Pictures…

UPDATE: I’ve added video, a VERY SPECIFIC video, to this post because it is stunningly telling of the dynamic.  Watch Chairman Kim Jong-un closely; he is extremely overwhelmed/intimidated by the scale, scope and intensity of the swarm media and the events that have brought him to this moment.

Kim’s respiration rate is fast and deliberate; he attempts to calm his nerves with breaths while simultaneously is aware that every moment is being captured.  I find myself feeling great empathy for Chairman Kim Jong-un in this video.  Again, watch closely this video captures the essence of the meeting better than all others:

President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un deliver initial remarks at the beginning of their one-on-one bilateral meeting.  [Transcript Link]

Q Mr. President, how do you feel (inaudible)?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: I feel really great. We’re going to have a great discussion and, I think, tremendous success. It will be tremendously successful. And it’s my honor. And we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.

CHAIRMAN KIM: (As interpreted.) Well, it was not easy to get here. The past worked as fetters on our limbs, and the old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward. But we overcame all of them, and we are here today.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: That’s true.

Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you. Thank you very much.

CHAIRMAN KIM: (As interpreted.) Thank you.

      The look on Trump’s face after they talked and sat down was priceless. Super confident and knowing he just solved the Mueller problem. No way they can still keep that attack and impeachment threat going now. Mueller will wrap it up and write a dirty little report that will have far less influence than if this had failed.

      The Senate/Rubio is going to look like a fool now if he proceeds with Schummer in killing Trump’s ZTE agreement. They better pull that back or will pay a price politically. All the RINOS are going to pay a price now if they continue obstruction tactics. They just officially lost and the globalists/elites just started looking for other ways to wreak havoc on the world. They are officially out of jobs and put on notice now.

        Just watch all the newfound cooperation in the near future. I love it. They better let him do his thing with trade and foreign relations. Let Trump and the pros work for awhile, you dumbass career obstructionist goons. Hell, Kuchner is near a mideast peace deal as it is being BFF’s with both HSH and Netanyahu. I even foresee a deal where Iran becomes best buds with the rest of the world. Why not? There is a lot of wealth to accumulate and spread around if these leaders finally realize they should do the right things. We also need our State Dept and CIA to stop meddling as well.

        Trump is smart/savvy enough to start going after and conquering their supporters like Koch brothers and Soros right now and I pray he does. Those asses and their comrades have done way too much damage in their quests to destroy our country with handouts to the rest of the world.

        Limbaugh has frequently said they will never give up trying to destroy Trump, his businesses and his family. He needs to continue going after them and needs the full eight years in order to permanently put them on notice that they are finished. If effective they will know not to mess with him or his family. Somehow he needs to put the fear of God into the DOJ as well. There is a cabal still in place that has to be completely destroyed before he leaves office.

          • I caught a couple of minutes of a History channel program about North Korea the other night. They mentioned how the military gets the best of the food in the country. Then they showed video of the recent military defector shot escaping from North Korea. He was pulled over the border and while receiving medical treatment during the operation the South Korean doctors were pulling huge parasitic worms from his body. It is no wonder the people of North Korea are much shorter than normal when even members of the military are full of worms.

            The video above shows a leader who can take control of any situation and another who quakes in the shadow of what could be one of the greatest leaders of our time. Who the left attacks relentlessly.

            Hopefully, the IG report on Thursday and the Horowitz testimony next week will be the nail in the coffin of Mueller and his witch hunt. Then Trump can get busy draining the swamp.

            • Consider the possibility that Kim has been as much a prisoner of military rule as a beneficiary of it.

              The fact that a POTUS was willing to meet with him was, I suspect, pretty important in deciding to take this chance.

              American foreign affairs have been on autopilot since the end of WWII. The mind-set of the ‘foreign relations experts’ reflects a way of thinking that has been unable to change since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

              As a result of POTUS DJT’s modern way of thinking about world affairs, I suspect many seemingly-unsolvable foreign affairs problems are doing to be ‘solved’.

    • If the USA had been led by a President with the vision and stature of Donald Trump during the past half century, history would have been very different.

      If Donald Trump had been President in 1960, there probably would have been no Cuban Missle Crisis and the nation could have been spared the nightmare that was the Vietnam War and the takeover of Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge.

      If Donald Trump had been President in 1990, there would have been no Gulf War. And if he had been President in 1998, the American military would have dealt decisively with Osama bin Laden and Al Queda before that terrorist organization could metastisize and attack the American homeland.

      If Donald Trump had been President in 2000, the 09/11/01 attacks could have been prevented. And if he had been President in 2003, the United States never would have gone to war with Iraq.

    House Dems Buck Schumer on North Korea, Send Trump Letter of Support

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/06/11/house-dems-buck-schumer-on-north-korea-send-trump-letter-of-support/

    The House Democrat letter is signed by Reps. Raul Grijalva (AZ), Barbara Lee (CA), Mark Pocan (WI), Pramila Jayapal (WA), Tulsi Gabbard (HI), Bobby Rush (IL), Zoe Lofgren (CA), Madeleine Bordallo (GUAM), Colleen Hanabusa (HI), Mark DeSaulnier (CA), Richard Nolan (MN), Karen Bass (CA), Jared Huffman (CA), and Jamie Raskin (MD).

    Their letter stood in stark contrast to one sent on Monday to the president by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and six Senate Democrats, which said they would oppose any agreement Trump reached with North Korea unless certain and conditions were met.

      She paled, and after a few seconds, Kims nose twitched, he leaned over and asked “Madam Secretary, do you need to change your underwear?”

      Shaking her head no, she said “Depends”.

    I noticed that moment too, you could see it in his face.

    Kim is used to having Total Control over the media in his little country.
    And also…total control over any situation that he puts himself in.

    It looked to me, like he had a sort of “Oh sh-t” moment there…because he realized that he was under the glare & scrutiny of the worldwide media — and he had no control over it.

    I think our President picked up on this…and tried to put him at ease.
    It’s like Kim took his cue from Pres Trump, and relaxed, after that.

        I’ve been thinking along this lines as well.
        1) KJU is not a typical dictator–he did not take control of a country himself, he inherited it.
        2) KJU came to power as a very young man (28 yrs old), somewhat unexpectedly upon his father’s untimely death ( who had taken power at 53 years old.)
        3) KJU is a millennial. He not only went to the West for school but was brought up with access to modern culture through the internet.

        I don’t in any way want to excuse his human rights abuses but this is all he has ever known. Additionally, while he is Supreme Leader there is an entire hierarchy of entrenched elites that make his position possible. N. Korea’s “State and Deep State”. They pose just as great a danger to him as external ones. He just got rid of (unclear how) 3 top old guard military leaders before making this trip.

        I can’t shake this feeling that KJU is looking for a way out of this.
        His problem:
        How does a dictator open his hermit society that he inherited and not himself end up in the hangman’s noose?
        Trump senses this.

      I was reminded twice today of how Trump let Ben Carson know he’d been called to the stage. Everyone else, including Cruz walked right by Ben without letting him know.

      At the beginning, Trump gave KJU a gentle nudge to move, just before the 1 on 1. Then again here, where Trump covered him to give him time to collect his wits. I almost expected KJU to lose his voice or squeak out a few words. But he managed to keep it together.

      Yes…and it began a year ago, when Pres Trump went to Saudi Arabia as his first state visit.

      That visit was essential.
      The ripples from it are still spreading out in all directions.

      By helping to cement the power of the fairly new king, King Salman…and his son, MBS…PTrump set in motion the takedown of the enemies of Western civilization.

      This came into play, when Prince Salman arrested all those rogue members of the royal family, who had been pouring millions into various terrorist orgs and progressive black ops organizations.
      This cut off a big source of the money supply.

      Antifa, BLM and other subversive prog groups have been rather quiet and subdued since that happened.

      I’ve been sensing that the post-World War II global order is reaching the end of its natural life. The globalist oriented economic and social structures dominated by trans-Atlantic financial interests is no longer sustainable and is breaking down. We are seeing a return to traditional patterns of international relations, a withdrawal into regional cultural associations (examples include the split between Western and Eastern Europe, to a lesser extent the attempted separation of the UK from Western Europe), and a retreat from the neo-liberal version of democracy (an example would be the rise of socialism in South America, which sundance touched on yesterday).

      What I am not as convinced of is the “end” of the “West.” Though we have reached a moment it could end, such a moment is also an opportunity to transition to something new- possibly worse, possibly better. I believe POTUS understands this too and that the US needs to be positioned to as best as it can be to enter a new era.

        The U.S. and Eastern Europe will continue to constitute the Christian-Judeo foundations of the “West”, and maybe Canada if they don’t rush headlong into islamization like Western Europe is doing.

  21. Sundance: your update nailed it.

    Without a doubt, Kim is overwhelmed. The DPRK does not have 24/7/365 fake media globalist corporations constantly streaming this and that fake news. They don’t know how to process the lies. There isn’t a 24 hour consumerist culture in Kim’s country. There is no local experience analogous to the constant bombardment– and rule– by globalist media that we suffer from in the west. In my opinion, DPRK is walking a tightrope between seeking to preserve its national independence, on the one hand, and the perils of Globalism on the other. DPRK’s society is very isolated and therefore not currently prepared to defend itself against globalist propaganda, the GloboHomo agenda, feminism, AIDS, miscegenation, mass migration, and everything else being promulgated by the anti-Christian MSM.

    Believe it or not, the DPRK has a Christian culture, even if it is not fully actualized. Christians preserved Korean culture, language, and writing during the Japanese occupation, and that is appreciated by the current DPRK government. It is acknowledged in their official publications and public monuments (cf Manyongdae outside Pyongyang; Chilgol Church in Pyongyang where Billy Graham preached, etc.). In fact, Kim Il Sung grew up as a Presbyterian. Kim Jong Un may not be a practicing Christian, but his family identity is Presbyterian. President Trump is also a Presbyterian. The official Presbyterian church has run of the rails for the past 50 years, but that doesn’t detract from the religious sincerities of either PDJT or KJU. In fact, the sins of the Presbyterian church may explain the fact that both leaders are not active participants in the denomination as it is currently organized…

    Ever notice that “journalists” have degrees in “journalism” but that is the one subject that they are experts on that they never write or publish about?

    Seriously, who do these journalists think they are? They assume for themselves the mantle of “experts” about every possible situation that could ever develop. The arrogance of MSM is unmatched in history.

    Let us keep the DPRK in our prayers. Lord knows, they can use it.

    Watched again — best part was when POTUS said to Kim that he would explain something later — when the presstitutes had left the room — a seminar on the West’s fake news.

    There are so many things going on all at once. It’s all so complex. I think Kim is being used as a pawn by China. Essentially everything he has done China instigated…. and now China has decided to ‘sacrifice’ North Korea as it is, and try to use President Trump’s new relationship with Kim as a workaround. They’ve given up the old school way of using North Korea and this is the new school way.

      How I love and respect our President. Every thing about him.

      He’s more than double KJU’s age and seems to be going gently, but firmly, with him. This trait seems to come naturally to President Trump. I’ve never seen anyone else with such abilities and presence. He’s utterly amazing.

      America is being led by a president who truly LOVES her. After enduring the very obvious hatred the last president had for our great, beautiful country, President Trump’s sincere love for America is palpable and wonderful to witness. My heart is exploding with joy, love, appreciation, respect and pride. ❤️👍🇺🇸🚂🦁

      Thank You, God! Thank You for giving us President Trump. 🙏

      All of those cameras are digital, every single one of them has an option to turn off the click sound. The reason they leave it on is because they have romanticized ideas that they’re part of the grand tradition of a ‘free press’ who used to ‘work the beat’ and get the story.

      It’s Hipster crap

        They have to have the click for the high frame rates of their DSLR cameras. Mirrorless cameras and Sony ‘s new A7III and A9 solve the problem. It will be about three years and the click will be gone as pros migrate to mirrorless and silent shooting.

    You know, when they write the history of President Trump’s presidency, it will need to be in 16 volumes. Because there will be so much action packed into each year they will have to break it in half otherwise the books will look like logs.

    Who would have thought seeing Mr. Trump descending the escalator in 2015 we would see him sitting beside Chairman Kim in the middle of 2018…

    I don’t want to sleep anymore afraid I will miss out on something…

    • The moment I saw Trump come down the elevator I started telling people he would win the primaries and be President. At first my two living sisters thought I was crazy. One had voted for Gore and the other was a big Ted Cruz supporter. They both ended up voting Trump and are big Trump supporters now.

    A lot of the MSM are screaming (whining) that PDJT must never meet alone with Kim Jong-Un (KJU)
    I disagree:
    Meeting alone with KJU (and two translators), PDJT has a great opportunity: First, the back-story:
    PDJT and Secretary Pompeo, made sure that the (MJU relative), Kim Yang-gon, the 2nd in command of NoKo, (who had NOT traveled abroad out of NoKo before) received a glorious welcome in NY City, and had the best meal ever, before touring Washington, DC, and meeting with PDJT in the White House.
    Previously, KJU had been a student in Switzerland, and as a “son of a diplomat” had toured all of Europe.

    So, while fostering these impressions of the benefits of being a human nation in the 22nd Century, Trump proposed (in the privacy of just KJU and PDJT (with two translators), )
    “Here’s the deal:
    The USA will guarantee to support your government to remain in power, and help you obtain all of the benefits of being a participating economy in the 22nd century world market, and achieve great wealth and prosperity, or . . .”
    PDJT stares KJU in the eye,
    “You can continue to threaten America with nuclear weapons. If that is your choice, I guarantee you, that I will direct the US Military to do worse to you and the Kim Family, than they did to ISIS.
    We eradicated the ISIS Caliphate, completely.
    If you persist with threatening America, or our allies with nuclear weapons, we will destroy every Kim family habitat and building, and all of the Kim Regime buildings and infrastructure.
    Read me clear: Cease your nuclear arms and let us protect you as you grow into your 22nd century marketplace participation, or be completely eliminated and turned into glass.
    I will then give your country to South Korea as a gift.”

    And then PDJT sits back to see if KJU is interested in negotiations.

    I love the initial meeting with No Witnesses (except the two translators, who are afraid for their lives, if they talk).

    Kim might have been uneasy in part because he didn’t know if there was an assassin among the press throng.

    I agree that Kim Jong-Un was nervous and overwhelmed! This rather young man has been totally isolated from the outside world, his entire life. In lieu of that, I believe his going to Singapore was an extremely COURAGEOUS move—-more courageous than anyone else involved.

    I want to see good things for North Korea, as much as I want to see PEACE. Jong-Un can make a drastic difference in the lives of his starving people, if he follows through on the comittments that he signed. I continue to pray for this cause.

    I also applaud the 14 Democrats who broke with their Leaders, in order to send a letter to Pres. Trump in Singapore—it was a letter of hope, and encouragement. What these 14 Democrats did took COURAGE, also. If they were on any committees, they’ll probably be “stripped” of those assignments, by party leaders!!!
