CNN's Jake Tapper on Tuesday weighed in on the Trump-Kim summit arguing that other presidents did not meet with North Korean leaders to avoid giving their dictatorships prestige.
It's not as if other presidents couldn't have done this, Tapper said of Trump's historic meeting with the North Korean leader. It's that they didn't want to.
Tapper, the host of CNN shows The Lead and State of the Union, prefaced his comments that past presidents decided not to meet for direct talks with North Korea because the concern was, you don't want to give North Korea that kind of prestige.
You don't want to elevate them without having something guaranteed in terms of what they are actually willing to do, in terms of denuclearization, in terms of what Secretary of State Pompeo constantly refers to as irreversible and verifiable denuclearization.

How sick can leftist get?
The point is, they didn’t, and allowed the problem to fester to where it represented a nuclear danger to the world. So Trump is the one who is finally willing to take the risks to defuse it.
Then why didn’t they, Jake? Naw, this was the only president who could have done this and done it right.
Exactly, they could have done this but didn’t want to..didnt want to think outside the box or bubble, that’s why they failed.
It’s that they didn’t want to.
That says it all.
Jake Tapper is Hank Kimball
Obama trips and falls and the press says: “He meant to do that.”
Obama fails to broker peace with North Korea and the press says: “He could have done that; he just didn’t want to.”
Trump walks on water and the press says: “This guy can’t swim.”
Take Kr@pper doing his thing.
Collusion to GET TRUMP!, Never News.
It must be difficult to live when they must dismiss reality - they must be in a perpetual state of confusion.
It’s not that other presidents couldn’t have done the Iran deal. It’s just they aren’t stupid and actually love America so wouldn’t do it.
It’s not that other presidents could have done this. It’s just that other presidents didn’t.
But the DIDN’T, Jake. They didn’t.
Hey Tapper, if they could have, why didn’t they?
Libs sink lower into their cesspool every day.
Coulda woulda shoulda.......................
And yet Obama met with the Castro regime in Cuba— giving prestige to a dictatorship.
And $hitball Schumer and Indicted pedophile Menendez are are out this morning talking trash about the summit. Just wondering when our two Senators, the Commie Capo and the Halfbreed will be warming up their vocal cords.
