Minutes after his nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ended, President Donald Trump stood before media from around the world and talked about…condos.
At the post-summit press conference, Trump said he had agreed to end all joint military operations with South Korea and may lift sanctions in the near future, but then he started talking about building condos in North Korea:
“You see that whenever they’re exploding their cannons into the ocean. I said boy look at that view. Wouldn’t that make a great condo?
“Instead of [testing missiles] you could have the best hotels in the world right there. Think of it from a real estate perspective. You have South Korea, you have China and they own the land in the middle.”
When he did try and discuss the issue of nuclear weapons, Trump sounded as if he hadn’t slept in a week, commenting:
“You know, scientifically, I’ve been watching and reading a lot about this, and it does take a long time to pull off complete denuclearization. It takes a long time scientifically, you have to wait certain periods of time, and a lot of things happen. But despite that, once you start the process, it means it’s pretty much over. You can’t use them. That’s the good news, and that’s going to start very soon, I believe that’s going to start very soon. We will do it as fast as it mechanically and physically can be done.”
Asked about whether or not he believed Kim can be trusted to keep his promises, Trump remarked:
“I may be wrong, I mean, I may stand before you in six months and say, ‘Hey I was wrong.’ I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that, but I’ll find some kind of an excuse.”
Of course he’ll find an excuse. That’s the story of Donald Trump’s life. Even when he’s to blame for the multiple bankruptcies incurred by his businesses or making bigoted statements, it’s always someone else’s fault.
Miracle of miracles: Pass the buck Donnie finally let a tiny shred of truth come from his lips! That’s probably someone else’s fault, too.
