Donald Trump constantly strengthens the case that he cannot be taken seriously as the President of the United States. His behavior on and off of social media is childish, erratic, and terrifying all at once and he can’t be trusted to be presidential no matter what is at stake.
A new report just outlined a ridiculous stunt that Trump pulled while he was in Singapore meeting North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un last month, and it truly proves how far this country has fallen. This summit between Trump and Kim was a historic moment as the two leaders were to speak about denuclearization, but of course, Trump treated the entire thing like a game.
Korean news outlet The Chosunilbo has recently reported that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered two gifts from Trump to Kim while the president was in North Korea. One was a letter from the president. The other one was… an Elton John CD, which Trump autographed. On this CD is a song called “Rocket Man,” a nickname that Trump has repeatedly insulted and attacked Kim with since 2017.
One diplomatic source in Washington said, “The ‘Rocket Man’ CD was the subject of discussion during Trump’s lunch with Kim. Kim mentioned that Trump referred to him as ‘rocket man’ when tensions ran high last year” after a series of nuclear tests and missile launches by the North. “Trump then asked Kim if he knew the song and Kim said no.”
This is NOT how you negotiate or establish trust with brutal dictators like Kim! Sources in Washington say that Trump’s gifts “reflect Trump’s expectations that Kim will follow through on the pledges in an agreement the two signed at their summit.” Yeah, right!
This is so embarrassing for America. Trump is truly incapable of creating respectable relationships with other world leaders. Let’s hope Kim wasn’t too offended by the idiot in the White House.
