Nancy Pelosi attacked Trump over meeting Kim Jong Un and it just blew up in her face
Nancy Pelosi could not help herself.
President Trump held a historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and Pelosi leapt at the chance to savage Trump.
But Pelosi spoke too soon and her attack just blew up in her face.
The Democrat House Minority Leader fired off a statement blasting Trump for supposedly giving away the store to North Korea.
Nuclear nonproliferation is a pillar of America’s national security. We respect any serious and real diplomatic efforts to achieve that goal on the Korean peninsula. Apparently, the President just handed Kim Jong-un concessions in exchange for vague promises that do not approach a clear and comprehensive pathway to denuclearization and non-proliferation.
In his haste to reach an agreement, President Trump elevated North Korea to the level of the United States while preserving the regime’s status quo. The millions of families currently living in fear of nuclear weapons in the region deserve strong and smart leadership built-in diplomacy and engagement with our regional partners and allies.
The president’s marginalization of the State Department and his habitual disparaging of our allies as demonstrated at the G7 Forum hinders a lasting, stable pathway to peace.
That is nonsense.
President Trump secured the release of American hostages, the return of missing POWs as well as North Korea agreeing to destroy a missile test site.
Heading back home from Singapore after a truly amazing visit. Great progress was made on the denuclearization of North Korea. Hostages are back home, will be getting the remains of our great heroes back to their families, no missiles shot, no research happening, sites closing…

Pelosi’s attack – which makes it clear she is rooting for failure in the North Korean peace process – looks even worse in light of her slobbering praise over Obama’s disastrous Iran deal.
She called the agreement – which allowed Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon once the deal’s sunset provisions expired – a “diplomatic masterpiece.”
Polls show the American people overwhelmingly support Trump talking to Kin Jong Un.
Democrats will pay a price this fall for secretly hoping Trump fails at his efforts to win a peaceful settlement to the North Korean nuclear standoff.
