Trump On N. Korea After 10 Minutes With Xi Jinping: “It’s Not So Easy”
In comments published by the Wall Street Journal, Donald Trump apparently seems to have finally gotten the plot around North Korea and China. In what is just another incident of Trump being Trump, he went into his first meeting with the Chinese President, earlier this month, convinced that China could simply blot out the North Korean threat. But I guess we’re (un)lucky that the leader of America’s largest regional rival took the time to explain the basic history behind the Chinese and Korean relationship.
The President in his talk with the WSJ recounted, “After listening for 10 minutes, I realized it’s not so easy. I felt pretty strongly that they had a tremendous power [over] North Korea. … But it’s not what you would think.”
No Mr. President, it’s definitely not what YOU would think.
So what did we learn about America’s brave new leader from his latest meeting –
- The President of the United States, who so conveniently until now thought that China could keep N. Korea under control, was intelligently informed otherwise, prompting him to make the above comments.
- While most intelligent people have figured out the existence of Google when in need of facts, Trump seems to have required President Jinping to give him a history lesson in person. I guess those are some of the perks that come with being the President of the “free world.”
- The POTUS needed all of ten minutes to come to a groundbreaking realization on what is one of the most dangerous conflicts in the world.
- The POTUS seems to rely on his rivals from the regions of conflict in question to educate him on the affairs of those regions…*cough cough* RUSSIA
- The POTUS is in desperate need of a lesson on how to use google – cause when your staff has folks like Sean Spicer and Jeff Sessions…
It seems that North Korea is getting ready to launch a nuclear device again, in what will be only the 6th time in the country’s history. We can only wonder how the Trump administration will respond to this new development.
