Next week, the leaders of the United States of America and the Democratic
Peoples Republic of Korea will meet for one of the most important diplomatic
summits so far in this century. Its been known forever that Trump is just gonna
wing it, especially considering he canceled it and then brought it back. But
youd hope that maybe, just maybe, hed shut the fuck up about how not seriously
hes taking it.
I dont think I have to prepare very much, Trump told reporters on Thursday of
his meeting with Kim Jong-un. Its about attitude. Its about willingness to
get things done.﻿ And then, later, Trump said this, according to the AP:
I think Ive been prepared for this summit for a long time, as has the other
side, he said. II think theyve been preparing for a long time also. So this
isnt a question of preparation, its a question of whether or not people want
it to happen.
Folks. Im the most prepared guy there is. You wont even believe how prepared I
am. People see me and they say, Wow. There goes Mister Preparation. You really
are hearing this more every day.
According to the AP, Secretary of State Mike Pompeopresumably realizing its
bad for the president to admit hes a proud know-nothing dumbass in
publiccovered for him (emphasis mine):
Administration officials indicated that Trump actually was putting in
preparation time. National Security Council spokesman Garrett Marquis noted the
president met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser
John Bolton Thursday afternoon to continue their strategic discussions ahead
of the summit.
Pompeo said he was confident the president would be fully prepared and dismissed
reports of division inside Trumps foreign policy team over the decision to
embrace the meeting with Kim.
In his previous role as CIA director, Pompeo told reporters Thursday, there
were few days that I left the Oval Office, after having briefed the president,
that we didnt talk about North Korea.﻿
Absolutely. For sure.
