The Trump/Kim Bromance Didn't Last Very Long

(The caricature of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un is by DonkeyHotey.)

Less that two weeks ago Trump was singing the praises of Kim Jong-Un, the dictator of North Korea. He called him a good leader, talented, and trustworthy -- and told Americans that they had nothing more to worry about from North Korea. He said the threat of a nuclear North Korea was over, and it was all due to the marvelous negotiating powers of Donald Trump.

Well, it seems the bromance didn't last very long. Trump is finally starting to realize he got played by the North Korean leader. Trump sent a letter to Congress last Friday. He told them that North Korea's "provocative, destabilizing, and repressive actions . . . continue to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat", and that country continues it's "pursuit of nuclear and missile programs".

I'm glad that Trump is finally realizing what most Americans already knew -- that Kim Jong-Un is a vicious and brutal dictator, and cannot be trusted any more that his father or grandfather.
