Trump made a point… and it might lead to peace?

Can you say trump card for next US election?

OK, let me first fill you in…

Time 22:26 9th of March 2018.

A few minutes ago I was going through Sky News’ website and I see this title :

Trump agrees to ‘milestone’ meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un

I read the title literally 3 times and the only words that I could formulate werethis has never happened… is Trump really going to do something that will award him an automatic Trump card(no pun intended there) during his next election? …. and guess what?

Yes it will be.

The thing is this : No US President has ever actually met a North Korean Leader. No diplomatic summit, no peace talks, no trade deals.. nothing.

If Trump actually succeeds to open a potential line of communication with North Korea and start diplomatic talks, it will mean that he has achieved where many previous presidents could not.

The shocking truth is that even if the meeting happens, the fact that it took place will be an achievement that will help secure Trump’s second term as US president in 2020.

One thing is certain, the voters who backed him up the first time round will probably support him again. The reason is that any sane person believes that world peace is a goal humanity should strive for and should Trump manage to go home with some sort of proper agreement to begin to denuclearize, his ticket is set to serve a second term. I can also imagine a lot of people turning to support him because of this.

Don’t get me wrong, we cannot assume that North Korea will stick to the plan, it’s not first time that they got cold feet at the last minute. Should they show up, we cannot expect an immediate denuclearized North Korea. 

Something like that will take time, one thing is certain. If Trump pulls this off, it will be another one for the history books with his name on it.

  1. So here is the curve ball….What if he doesnt want a second term, he just wants to create the empire he desires for him and his cronies. What if his supporters don’t want peace with North Korea, they have failed in Iraq. Afghanistan, and now Syria,. They did not manage to impose themselves as Conquerors. However, a softer option of North Korea, allows him to ‘play his trump’ and destroy a nation. This can only be achieved when all avenues of diplomacy have been explored. The world would not allow it in any other way. So you offer the olive branch, state that you tried, then attack. He needs China on his side. China will not allow US domination on their border but may accept some form of land grab if allowed by the victors. I am sure that he will be seen as weak if he signs a deal, which is not what he wants. The real civil servants know that the Bear is the biggest threat to the US…Not rocket man…but it has been a long time since the last US win

    1. Well first of all, he declared he will be running for a second term only a month into his presidency. Also, I don’t think he is a conqueror. The man is too much of a businessman in my opinion, he might be a crook but a businessman none the less. Now if on the other hand this is what will happen and this is just a deceptive trick to justify an assault then we will soon know because Trump already stated the meeting will happen before the end of May. We’ll have to wait and see. He won’t be seen as weak if the deal is favorable, he will actually gain quite a bit of respect when it comes to statecraft. As far as the Bear is concerned, I don’t think he wants a fight with anybody.
