CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday weighed in on the Trump-Kim summit arguing that other presidents did not meet with North Korean leaders to avoid giving their dictatorships “prestige.”

“It’s not as if other presidents couldn’t have done this,” Tapper said of Trump’s historic meeting with the North Korean leader. “It’s that they didn’t want to.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Tapper, the host of CNN shows “The Lead” and “State of the Union,” prefaced his comments that past presidents decided not to meet for direct talks with North Korea because “the concern was, you don’t want to give North Korea that kind of prestige.”

“You don’t want to elevate them without having something guaranteed in terms of what they are actually willing to do, in terms of denuclearization, in terms of what Secretary of State Pompeo constantly refers to as ‘irreversible and verifiable denuclearization.’ ”

    Obama met with Dictator Castro for a family vacation. Trump met with Dictator for the safety of the US and the world. Shows the character and priorities of each man of what they like and choose to do Mr. Tapper.

    Don’t you love how wise these so called experts are behind their desks when they have have never been involved in anything, businesswise, never negotiated anything and half the time don’t study anything, either? They have no morals, values, not a single patriotic hair on their heads,

    They carelessly throw the you know what out there and hope it doesn’t fly back into their faces.

    It’s so easy to tell our President what he should do, shouldn’t do, should have done, how bad he has been, speculate about his beautiful and intelligent wife, on and on and on, blah, blah , blah….. how can anyone respect the media and their globalist masters who are trying to tear this country down. Sad thing is that the elites could care less about them and will throw them by the wayside or pick them off, when they are not needed anymore. Didn’t there used to be the journalist’s creed of objectivism. Not a very prestigious profession any more is it?
    Geeze, you would think they are all experts on foreign affairs.
