•US president Donald Trump left experts baffled when he said North Korea had agreed to destroy a missile engine testing site, but it now looks like North Korea is making good.
•North Korea will reportedly destroy a large-scale facility in Tongchang-ri, North Pyongan Province that was used to test engines for the intercontinental-range ballistic missile, the Hwasong-14.
•The Hwasong-14 was the first North Korean missile experts said could hit the US mainland with a nuclear payload.
•Measures like the destruction of testing sites in North Korea, if monitored by US and international experts, could build the kind of trust needed to carry out denuclearization.

US president Donald Trump left experts baffled when he said North Korea had agreed to destroy a missile engine testing site after emerging from his summit with Kim Jong Un, but it now looks like North Korea is making good.

"They secured the commitment to destroy the missile engine testing site. That was not in your agreement," Trump said in a press conference after the summit, referencing the joint statement which made no mention of concrete steps towards denuclearization.

"I got that after we signed the agreement. I said do me a favor. You have this missile engine testing site. We know where it is because of the heat. It is incredible the equipment we have to be honest with you. I said can you close it up. He's going to close it up," Trump continued.....

I’ll bet Trump knew about that engine testing site much earlier, but tossed it in at the last minute to test the commitment of North Korea.

And those guys came through.

Historic times.

Historic president.

But Kim got recognition. His flag was placed next to ours.

There is no comparison. Trump needed to get more.

At least according to the MSM. Idiots.

I did NOT find anything baffling when the President announced it. What I also did not fined baffling was the MSM not mentioning it when it was shouting its lie of “Trump gave in and got nothing in return.”

Excuse me but exactly how did his statement baffle experts and how are they experts in that case? This level of suppos’d reporting is frightening.

Hoo boy. I pray it works. It’ll be better than the hell to which NK was headed in a handcart.

Glory be unto God.

Obviously he gave in really nothing because he kept the sanctions on for now and he got back in return a complete stop to their missile and nuclear bomb testing. The so called reporting is insane political propaganda.

I confess a moment of moving emotion. If God has truly conferred this kind of blessing power on the confessedly unlikely seeming Donald Trump. Donald was the redneck rassling playboy of millions of dollars worth of cheap glitz, or so it seemed. But God saw something more. If this works it will be a moment of trans-Solomonic wisdom, if there can be such a thing.
