The media is still desperate to tear down President Donald Trump’s summit with the North Korean dictator, and in that effort, a Time magazine “reporter” tried to slam the president today. But Trump’s response in shutting that reporter down was epic.
The Time reporter asked if Trump thinks Kim Jong Un and his hermit kingdom is America’s “equal” because Trump showed Kim a video of how North Korea could look with a future of peace and capitalist prosperity, BizPacReview reported.
The question is a pretty idiotic one, granted. How it could be that showing a country’s leader how his country could be better with capitalist improvements suddenly makes them an “equal” is anybody’s guess. But, somehow this magazine Goofus was trying to play “gotcha” Trump by unduly pumping North Korea up a notch, apparently.
Trump’s reply, though, was a perfect one.
“If I have to say I’m sitting on a stage with Chairman Kim and that’s going to get us to save 30 million lives — maybe more than that — I’m willing to sit on the stage,” Trump replied. “I’m willing to travel to Singapore very proudly, very gladly.”
“If I can save millions of lives by coming here, sitting down, and establishing a relationship with someone who’s a very powerful man — who’s got firm control of a country and that country has very powerful nuclear weapons — it’s my honor to do it,” the president added.
Later he zingered the press with this: “Anyone can make war, but only the most courageous can make peace.”
Many have tried to tear down the president’s handiwork, of course. In one case, Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra caught NBC ‘journalist’ Dafna Linzer in a falsehood (and bad math, at that) in her attempt to attack Trump.
Math is not Linzer’s thing, apparently. My guess is, neither is journalism.
Nadia Salvino also made a great point about all the left’s predictions:
Yeah. Remember when the media told us that Hillary was a deadlock to be our next president?
How’d that work out for them?
Still, a long list of leftists are attacking the summit saying that it was all a big win for North Korea and a loss for the U.S.A. Granted none of these same leftists were attacking Barack Obama for caving in totally to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro who really DID “get everything” while Obama gave away the store.
Here are a few hypocrites on the left attacking the summit:
There are literally thousands of these idiotic hot takes on the summit.
