This is Blompf at his best:
President Trump: “I just want to say that this is my honor. I didn’t really expect it. We were in Japan for the #G20 and I said, ‘Hey, I’m over here. I want to call up Chairman Kim.'” https://t.co/U0muthq0pl pic.twitter.com/4ysKyW4QM6— The Hill (@thehill) July 1, 2019
I don’t like our President glad handing with that little monster from North Korea.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) June 30, 2019
You couldn’t make it up. John Bolton was sent to Mongolia while Tucker Carlson was one of those accompanying Trump to the DMZ. pic.twitter.com/5SudROfyNb— Tom Wright (@thomaswright08) June 30, 2019
For a fleeting moment, I remembered why I voted for him which is summed up in the tagline of this site: Peace, Populism, Progress, Prosperity. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a united, wealthy and denuclearized Korea without American troops on the DMZ?
Meanwhile, the Democrats are striking a different tone on North Korea:
This President should take the North Korean nuclear threat and its crimes against humanity seriously. This is not a photo-op. Our security and our values are at stake.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) June 30, 2019

"I'm all for speaking with adversaries but what's happened here is the president has raised the profile of a dictator. I think that he should put the work in beforehand and hold him accountable to a commitment that he made before." – @JulianCastrohttps://t.co/9oWQFeE17E— Democratic Coalition (@TheDemCoalition) July 1, 2019
There’s nothing like the #SanAntonioPride festival! This city’s embrace of the LGBTQ+ community is inspiring and a model for the nation—and I couldn’t be happier to be back home to see it. pic.twitter.com/RNLvPWoQbB— Julián Castro (@JulianCastro) June 30, 2019
Our President shouldn’t be squandering American influence on photo ops and exchanging love letters with a ruthless dictator. Instead, we should be dealing with North Korea through principled diplomacy that promotes US security, defends our allies, and upholds human rights. https://t.co/9ROpNfjYbY— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) June 30, 2019

To his credit, Yang chimed in to strike a different tone:
Anything that improves the political climate on the Korean peninsula and engages North Korea on its nuclear program is a good thing.— Andrew Yang (@AndrewYang) June 30, 2019
Advantage Trump on North Korea.
This is nothing new though. North Korea has always been one of the few bright spots in this otherwise dismal administration. Sheldon Adelson is reason why we can’t have a similar approach to Iran. The Iranians were also willing to negotiate and hold up their end of the nuclear deal.
