Vast Majority of Americans Support Trumpís Meeting with Kim Jong-Un

The vast majority of Americans support President Donald Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, according to a poll released on Monday that shows 71 percent approve. An even larger majority — 75 percent — see North Korea’s nuclear weapons program as a “major threat,” according to the Pew Research Center poll conducted in October.

Pew reported:

This share is as high as at any point since 2005. Around seven-in-ten Americans (71%) said the U.S. should take North Korea’s nuclear threats “very seriously.” Majorities also said North Korea is capable of launching a nuclear missile that could reach the U.S. (64%) and believed that the country’s leadership is really willing to follow through on threats to use nuclear weapons against the U.S. (65%).

Concerns have increased for both Republicans and Democrats on these questions since 2013, Pew reported.

I just saw on the ticker as I walked to my sad, oppressive cubicle that “Trump to end war games (military exercises) with S/ Korea”.

WTF?

The 29% that don’t approve are waiting for Mueller to prove Russian collusion.

Those Republicans, and perhaps even some Democrats) that lose the “never-Trump” attitudes and embrace all the positive benefits that have accrued to America, stand a pretty good chance of winning in November. This does not mean anyone must fall into march lockstep with Trump (he will be controversial no matter what), only that his many accomplishments that have further enhanced the United States of America be recognized.

And anybody that can rattle cages so vigorously HAS to be the kind of person who not only knows and heeds history, but shapes it.

Trump insults people? That is just part of his negotiation style.

And it works, when applied with keen regard for the most valuable manner in which to exert it.

That means the media is going to have to be creative to find ways to turn this into a negative.

Of that 29% half are not too intelligent, the remaining 15% are the extremist radical hate-filled anti-American Left, which is comprised of progressive Democrats, socialists, welfare recipients, many "educators" like Liberal professors and teachers, some public union workers and of course the media.

Approximately 33% of people are total morons and always side with dummie Dems no matter how asinine ... so getting to 71% support is astounding.

I’d make a deal with the devil to make the world a safer place.

And fight only if there’s no real alternative.

CNN started immediately after DT’s press conference yesterday.

Christian Annapore stated that Kim won, DT gave away everything (wargames).

Then a man (Asian background) who was apparently in charge of N.Korea in the Obama admin complained about everything.

Then the 2 CNN reporters agreed with the 2 critics

With the images coming out of yesterday’s meeting between President Trump and Kim Jung-un, it’s going to be impossible for the left to convince the American people that this is a negative. That being the case, here’s what a lot of leftists are thinking to themselves this morning: “We need another school shooting.”

Too bad for them, most schools are already out for the summer.

War Gaming is a provocative stance. Why not lower the pointed end of our stick, for the moment. We can raise the pointy end in an instant if/when the need arises (it very well may come to that). Our Kung-Fu is good right now. I'm sorry to hear that you are stuck in a cubicle.

I am in a cubicle because it feeds my family, but all I need for my heart to soar beyond these sad confines is knowing that Trump is working in my best interest, and he’s winning!
