Oh, so same old, except with military exercises cancelled; Kim now legitimized as Trump's equal, some might say superior; and folks who were never going to build nukes wondering seriously about if and when to develop and deploy.

This is "winning" in the same way the Old South was "honorable."

He doesn't have to. The Trumpsters rely on himself as the ultimate source of truth. If he says Kim denuclearized then he did. Claims to the contrary are fake news.

I wish I was making this up but this seems to be the line of thought on display from the MAGAs among my Facebook friends.
