I don't trust Trump with any deals, he may give away way too much, he just likes the attention, that he did something Pres. Obama wouldn't or couldn't do (for domestic political reasons) will give him a false bravado. My best hope is that Trump doesn't make things worse.
This is my fear about this. I think Trump needs this more than Kim.
I agree. He needs it... for his own ego trip. When the possibility first arose, someone (jokingly? I hope nobody was serious) said Trump should get a Nobel Peace Prize if things worked out. Maybe nobody else took that seriously, but he obviously did; he made mention of it in speeches... hinting and winking like a little boy who just learned what a hard-on feels like.
Seeing how fascinated he is with his own bragging rights... how determined he is to out-Obama anything that his predecessor accomplished... and how fragile his ego is... I have no doubt that the most important thing driving towards this meeting is the belief that he could actually receive such a nomination. Of course, considering what he is doing to the environment, to human rights, and to world trade, the idea of a Nobel Peace prize is laughable - at best.
But the man-child in the White House doesn't consider that; facts are meaningless to him, and he seems to have no capacity to absorb them. Instead, he believes in his own instincts (and, I might add, it appears John Bolton has found a way to stroke his ego and direct those instincts - a dangerous man to be doing so) and ignores anyone with experience and reason. To be so young, Kim is amazingly conniving and cunning; it will be interesting to see just how long Trump's hard-on lasts when confronted with reality.
