The good part of this meeting is that Trump seems to really like Kim now, so it decreases the chance of war breaking out.

It's good if Trump doesn't start a war, but he is telling all dictators in the world "Kill as many people as you want, the US won't say shit and will even reward you if you kiss my ass/bribe me." Which some critics say is a possible downside.

This natural affinity for dictators is one of the most worrisome things about Trump. If we can wrestle peace w/ N. Korea out of it, and maybe open some McDonalds there, then great, but God save us if the rule of law breaks down.

I can't help but wonder if Trump's private discussion with Kim was any more coherent than the cringe-worthy word salad he treated the press to, afterwards.

South Koreans Are Still Hopeful After the Trump-Kim Summit

Quote
There is hope today, among South Korea's fifty-one million residents, in the strange chemistry of Trump, Kim, and the South Korean President, Moon Jae-in; there is a belief that a peace treaty to officially end the Korean War, and a stepwise plan for North Korea's nuclear downsizing, if not total disarmament, could be imminent. Meanwhile, America's foreign-policy establishment, conservatives touting human rights, and Democratic leaders have issued statements and tweets ("the summit--and particularly its immediate aftermath--was a farce," James Acton, of the Carnegie Nuclear Policy Program, wrote) that sound more like those coming from conservative extremists in Korea and the ruling right wing in Japan. South Koreans don't love Trump, but, in a place where the U.S. military led a war that killed millions and created a multigenerational, literal rift, American standing and protocol are not the priority. From the Korean point of view, U.S. politics as usual has done little good for the peninsula. George W. Bush's "Axis of Evil" and his opportunistic obsession with North Korean human rights (while setting up the prison at Guantánamo) rolled back years of inter-Korean progress. President Obama, to the profound disappointment of many on the peninsula, did nothing to advance Korean peace.

...

The dominant view in Seoul is that the Singapore summit would not have taken place had Hillary Clinton been the President of the United States. Trump's approval ratings in South Korea are around thirty per cent--the same as Kim's--and South Koreans know that Trump's policies have resulted in cruelties and chaos elsewhere in the world. But here they are willing to take the unexpected good brought about by his Presidency. Lee Soo-jung, an anthropologist at Duksung Women's University, acknowledged the painful "historical irony" of benefitting from Trump. In a fairer world, she tells me, "The citizens of the world would be able to vote for the U.S. President."

What Kim Jong-un heard in Korean from the translator might have been coherent.

but in that case, did its content have any resemblance to what the Dotard was trying to say?
