‘Belligerent’ letter from North Korea reportedly prompted Trump to cancel Pompeo trip to Pyongyang A meeting of equals: what we learned from the Trump and Kim handshake 1. Flags The US and North Korean flags were lined up in an alternating pattern as the world waited for the two men to shake hands and pose for the cameras. The imagery was striking and a big win for Kim, who has worked to appear as an equal to the US president. The two men walked out together, with Trump extending his hand first. ------------------- Remember how Trump kept telling us he was doing what no other president has done? Well, in a way he did. He made North Korea look like the super power and the US look like a supplicant. So why isn't the media reporting on this massive failure and lie to the American People? Simple, There is only so much headline room. It's been taken up with bunnies and porn stars, felony convictions, disrespect of a man millions in the military consider a hero, jail terms, new trials and more and more corruption. But the rest of the world is continuing. For every scandal here, there is an overseas foreign relations disaster. They just keep piling up.
