How is Trump being played and with the knowledge of what Mike Pompeo and Trump and Bolton, et al have talked about behind closed doors what is Trump's actual thoughts and positions on North Korea and Kim?
I never used to finish sentences but now....

Seriously? trump helped to establish Kim as a world leader. Kim benefited from how that meeting looked on the world stage, the United States didn't.

Kim met with Pompeo first as CIA Director then as Secretary of State, that's only happened once before many years ago. Again, Kim benefited, the United States didn't.

Kim won a halt to the US-South Korea joint drills, once again Kim benefited, the United States didn't.

Kim got the international media to go to North Korea for a photo op witnessing the destruction of his already defunct nuclear test site, destroying evidence in the process.

trump publicly stated that North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat when nothing could be further from the truth.

There's more but I don't have the time needed to devote to it all.

In addition, as a result of President Trump's legitimization and praising of Kim........South Korea, China, and Russia were all given a green light to ease sanctions and are reportedly in discussions with North Korea about plans that will bring more money into the country.

Lessened tensions between NK and its neighbors is a good thing, in my opinion. Glad to see it. And, bringing more money into North Korea, if it's used to improve the economy for its citizens, is not something to which I object. If the money is simply used to further increase nuclear capabilities and line the pockets of Kim and company, however, it's a big fail.

Economic development was happening under the joint nuclear deal with Iran when Iran met its commitments and sanctions were eased. Of course, Trump pulled the U.S. out of that deal even though it was years in the planning, contained clear goals and timelines, was negotiated with Iran and international partners, and (most importantly) included site inspections/verifications in Iran -- none of which has been accomplished when it comes to our dealings with North Korea.
