following trump’s meeting with kim jong-un there have beena number of statements that our president has made in regard to un’s intelligence, his kindness, and how much he wants to see the people of north korea prosper. now it’s a completely different narrative from what we all know to be true, which is that kim jong-un is a dictator who is incredibly brutal to his own people, he imprisons individuals in labor camps, gulags, it’s known as a gulag state, the human rights violations in north korea are terrible, to say the very least, they have imprisoned our own journalists for years, otto warmbier, a young man who traveled to north korea, was imprisoned and brought back to the united states in such terrible condition that he died soon after, so when you take all these things into account it is a little insulting to hear donald trump discussed north korea and kim jong-un specifically as such a great guy, but also discuss how north korea could be a great place for u.s. business. they have great beaches. you see that, whenever they are exploding their cannons into the ocean, right? boy, look at that beach, wouldn’t that make a great condo? and i explained, instead of doing that you could have the best hotels in the world right there. think of it from a real estate perspective.
i don’t want to think of it from a real estate perspective, i want to think about it from a keeping the world safe from nuclear war perspective, i want to think about it from a human rights perspective. i get it, he is a real estate mogul, sort of, but he’s looking at this as a business opportunity as opposed to a situation where lives are at risk, where people are regularly persecuted, murdered, i mean, you’re dealing with a dictator and he’s having a conversation about condos. think about all the contractors you could stiff if you built those condos and then didn’t pay the people who built them. which you can do because you are a dictator. it’s unbelievable. the brutality in north korea is legend. he gets off on these little riffs where he’s up in front of the press and he starts lavishing praise and then just yapping, and that’s what you are seeing. but it does reflect what is really going on in his head. yeah, hotels. and i want to think, wait, which hotel is he recommending? we know. but just yesterday we saw the reaction to justin trudeau, and he did none of this. trudeau, who is our ally — and by the way we do a ton of trade with canada which benefits not only canada but the united states and u.s. manufacturers — he goes after trudeau and calls him weak, tweet after tweet tearing him apart, tearing him down, that is our ally. he is tearing down an ally while simultaneously going on a press tour to say all sorts of complementary things about a dictator in north korea who has threatened to nuke the united states. okay, so there’s the business aspect, we’ve got to that, now let’s watch all the nice, pleasant things trump said about kim jong-un following the meeting. he’s going to be happy, his country does love him, his people, you see the fervor, they have a great fervor.
i think that he really wants to do a great job for north korea, i think he wants to denuke, it’s very important. do you believe he’s changed? over my lifetime i’ve done a lot of deals with a lot of people and sometimes the people that you most distrust turn out to be the most honorable ones and the people that you do trust, they are not the honorable ones. his father made agreements with the united states and then said he was going to get rid of his nuclear weapons and then he backslid. he talks about that, he says there are reasons he did because he was let down by they knighted states. you trust him. i do, he trusts me, he said openly, he said it to a couple of reporters that were with him, that he knows that no other president ever could’ve done this. he knows the presidents, he knows who we had in front of me, he said no other president could have done this. i think he trusts me and i trust him. i would love to have him at the white house, whatever it takes, i would love to have him at the white house and i think he loved to be there. so the u.s. president has now become a tool for pro-north korea propaganda, that is what you heard in that montage of statements from our president. i would love to invite him to the white house, he loves his people. no, he doesn’t love his people, he brutalizes his people. anyway, there is that caveat, that silver lining, of at least we are more diplomatic and not worried about nuclear war at any moment because trump is on twitter talking about how his nuclear button is bigger than kim jong-un’s, but at the same time we can’t have the u.s. president running around spewing propaganda for kim jong-un because that is essentially what is happening here. he does speak as though he’s some sort of publicist for a brutal regime, it’s just crazy.
i do think and i do embrace the fact that we’ve gotten to this place of peace or potential peace in the weirdest way, but to in any way hold up that regime as a humane or decent or he’s a guy trying to do the right thing, there is no evidence of that. we’ve mentioned the gulag state, brutality of the people, you know he’s killed his own family, you know he killed his uncle with some sort of antiaircraft missile he fired at the guy, these are public executions that have taken on a kind of james bond villain quality, he’s an awful guy. he has imprisoned u.s. journalists, murdered american tourists. by the way that was one thing that bothered me was that trump said about otto warmbier, he said his death was not in vain, he spoke to the parents or claimed that he was speaking to them, and said your son didn’t die in vain. i thought, how could his death not be in vain? he came back to the united states in essentially a vegetative state and he died soon after being returned to the united states. how is that death in any way nothing but the greatest tragedy from start to finish? something that didn’t have to happen in the first place. we keep talking about it but no other president could have done this — we haven’t done anything yet except hold a meeting which of course we know could have happened over and over and over again, it just should not have happened, which is why it didn’t. i’m glad you mentioned that which is one thing that trump is applauding himself for, and i’m seeing a little bit of this in the media as well, is the fact that this was a historic meeting, he’s the first u.s. president who has done this, and he makes it seem as though no other u.s. president could have done it. but that is not the case, north korea has wanted legitimacy for a very long time, and the best way for them to get that legitimacy is through meeting with the u.s. president. and so other presidents could have easily done this, they could have done it at any moment, but they refused to do it because they understood what the agenda of the north korean dictator was. they didn’t want to legitimize that regime. and the other thing is that trump, by smack talking north korea, is the one who put everybody on a war footing. so now we are breathing a sigh of relief, but we already were, we didn’t view north korea as this threat until trump started smack talking them. he didn’t like the iran deal but he didn’t say he would get us into a war with north korea, but now all of a sudden we are like thank god, everything is peaceful. and you hear me saying it, we love the notion of peace even if we have to get there in this weird way. but the truth is we weren’t on a war footing before trump started smack talking north korea. he is cleaning up his mess that he in part created and being cheered for it. we aren’t even back to where we were before we got president trump — we aren’t even back to where we were, we are just sort of cleaning up their back-and-forth. trump was the person who said, openly and transparently, that north korea would be met with fire and fury the likes of which no one had ever seen before. that was a needless escalation with north korea, and honestly it created so much fear with south korea that they were willing to work with the north koreans in order to kind of develop some sort of diplomatic peace deal on the side, and then with the urging of south korea trump did agree to open up talks with the north koreans. so in a weird, roundabout way, trump’s juvenile, immature, and dangerous behavior on social media convinced other world leaders to actually step in and do something before the situation escalated to nuclear war. i’m so glad you said that because south korea, and the change in the south korean stature, is what produced this meeting and leads the way perhaps to something positive.
