Back in 1999, when Trump and the media had a great relationship, the future President went on NBC’s Meet the Press to discuss how he would handle North Korea.
Former host Tim Russert pressed Trump on his statements saying that he’d preemptively strike North Korea if he were president. Trump corrected him and said that first, he would “negotiate like crazy.”
“I’d make sure that we’d try to get the best deal possible,” Trump stated, adding that, “The biggest problem this world has is nuclear proliferation…you better solve the problem now than solve it later.”
Past administrations have done little to stop North Korea from developing nuclear weapons, making America and our allies less safe.
But Trump has not been so easy on the Hermit Kingdom and has imposed tough sanctions on the country in response to their repeated missile testing.
Now, we are on the brink of denuclearization of North Korea, with Kim Jong Un and Trump set to have an unprecedented negotiation meeting this summer.
Only a leftist could look at this as a bad thing, but Meet the Press’s new host has managed to do just that: Chuck Todd recently criticized the progress the president has made, and Trump’s response is about as blistering as you’d expect.
From Fox News:
“President Trump on Sunday dismissed comments by NBC News’ Chuck Todd suggesting that the United States is getting steamrolled in negotiations with North Korea over the rogue nation halting its nuclear weapons program, saying, ‘We haven’t given up anything.’
Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Fake News NBC just stated that we have given up so much in our negotiations with North Korea, and they have given up nothing. Wow, we haven’t given up anything & they have agreed to denuclearization (so great for World), site closure, & no more testing!

Trump was referring to Todd, the moderator of NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ saying Sunday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has yet to make an official ‘pledge’ to denuclearize and has yet to release hostages, likely referring to roughly 30 foreigners detained in the country, including about a dozen Americans.”
While we still have a difficult journey ahead with North Korea, the fact that we’re making any headway at all is reason enough for praise.
It’s a shame liberals can’t see this and must continue to spread fake news.
Chuck Todd also failed to mention the fact that Trump successfully negotiated the release of American student Otto Warmbier from North Korea a mere five months after his inauguration, proving he’s able to make deals with Kim Jong Un that Obama never could.
North Korea has been committing egregious human rights violations for seven decades, starving, killing and imprisoning millions of its citizens.
They should have been dealt with long ago, but thankfully we finally have a president who is up for the task, despite a deplorably leftist media.
