President Trump: “I learned he’s a very talented man. I also learned that he loves his country very much,”

It’s challenging to find something positive about our President.  But there he was in Singapore, meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Um.   I was frighten yet hopeful.  We know our Donald, he doesn’t like to study, he doesn’t like to prepare.  However, this meeting is much better than Armageddon.  However, like most world leaders Kim Jong Um is prepared .

I can’t get mired down with the juxtaposition of the flags.  I don’t care if the Republicans would have objected of Obama did what Trump did.    What I care about is world peace!

I wanted a win for the President, a win for the world.   It would have been a fantastic coup for the President after having an disastrous weekend at the G7 summit. ( I’m still wearing my burka)  My expectations was low, but world peace.

When they came out all smiles. I was hopeful.  The President told the press, they will be signing a document.

The President was glowing  with wonderful accolades about the North Korean leader.  “I learned he’s a very talented man. I also learned that he loves his country very much,”   The man who starves his people.   Who has tortured, executed, reportedly involved in the killing of his uncle and half brother and …. I’m sorry

The man who is like no other in making deals.  Got Played, by the 34 year old

Our Presidente,ordered the suspension of US military exercises with South Korea without telling South Korea.   He said,  “the war games, involving planes flying long distances, were too expensive. “We will be saving a tremendous amount of money. Plus, it is very provocative,” 

The US had previously ruled out such a move on the grounds that the exercises were a key element of its military alliance with Seoul and deterrent against  North Korea. 

In return for the US concession, Kim signed a joint statement committing to denuclearisation, but it was a vaguely worded commitment that the regime has made several times before over the past three decades. Asked what would be different this time, Trump pointed to his instincts as a deal maker.

“We got to know each other well in a very confined period of time,” Trump told reporters. “I know when somebody wants to deal and I know when somebody doesn’t.”As proof of Kim’s good intentions, Trump said Kim had offered to destroy a missile engine testing site. “I got that after we signed the agreement,” he recalled. “I said: do me a favor. You have this missile engine testing site … I said can you close it up. He’s going to close it up

Kim Jong Um wins, he has achieved what his country has long wanted, recognition.   Will we have a truce with North Korea?  The country’s reputation is poor.

The west has been destabilized.  Our allies can no longer rely on a stable United States.  If we leave South Korea as the president suggests.  Japan and South Korea might arm themselves with nuclear weapons.  Other countries may seek a nuclear alternative to possibility get a seat at the table.    China’s arms has extended to Africa, South America and other emerging nations.

 A nation in serious debt. (21 trillion dollars)   Our influence in the world  is rapidly fading .  With barrage of   tweets we have alienated our allies. The Russians may have already won, our President may have exceeded their wildest dreams.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
