South Korea Just Made A Surprising Statement About Trump

Last week, North and South Korea made modern-day history when the dictator of North Korea made official contact with South Korea.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un are reportedly making headway towards peace–but no one is certain why the sudden breakthrough.

But most surprisingly, South Korea just made a statement praising the one person who contributed the most to the communications.

According to the South Korean President, Donald Trump’s intense pressure campaign convinced North Korea to make headway towards peace.

The Daily Caller reported:

Trump “made a huge contribution to make inter-Korean talks happen,” President Moon Jae-in explained to reporters Tuesday night, adding, “I’d like to express my gratitude.” He reportedly said that talks “could be the effect of the sanctions and pressure led by the U.S.”

North and South Korea most recently met at the Peace House in the Joint Security Area at the dematerialized zone. The meeting earlier this week marked the first physical contact the countries had in two years.

Communications were opened following a promise made by North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un during his New Year’s address, where he claimed the North was “open to dialogue” with their southern counterparts.

According to reports, both North and South discussed joint participation in the Winter Olympics in South Korea, and ways to improve inter-Korean relations.

But President Trump was the real negotiator, whose strong stance and tough rhetoric made negotiations between the countries possible.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Look, right now, they’re talking Olympics. It’s a start, it’s big start. If I weren’t involved they wouldn’t be talking at all right now,” Trump told reporters recently.

Some are skeptical of talks between North and South Korea, however.

President Trump and South Korean President Moon are staying suspicious of Kim Jong Un’s intentions, regardless of their sudden cooperation.

President Trump recently reported he would even be willing to support talks between the United States and North Korea–under the right circumstances.

The Daily Mail reported:

President Donald Trump threw his weight behind the Olympics-inspired diplomatic opening with North Korea, telling South Korea’s leader Wednesday that the U.S. was open to talks with Kim Jong Un’s government under the right circumstances.

A White House statement said Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in still agreed on the importance of continuing the “maximum pressure” campaign against North Korea over its development of nuclear weapons – the U.S.-led barrage of international sanctions that is starting to bite the North’s meager economy.

But South Korea’s presidential office also said Trump told Moon to let North Korea understand that there will be no military action of any kind while the two Koreas continue to hold dialogue, the Yonhap news agency reported. On Tuesday, the two Koreas held their first talks in two years and agreed on the North’s participation in the Winter Olympics being held in the South next month.

Why do you believe North Korea is suddenly cooperating?

    Talk is good. Better than war. However, we need to be careful that the North is not trying to drive a wedge between the South and the US. I wouldn’t trust the fat little Rocket Boy as far as I could throw him.

      Trust and confirm, confirm, and confirm. In other wards, if he says the sun is shinning get up and look (out the window) to see if he is telling the truth.

    Regardless of whether one liked Trump or not–He is a well educated man in a line that coincides with US needs. He DID PAY for his own campaign–SOMETHING that the politicians have pilfered from US Income Tax Payers pockets since WWII!

    If one can not read or write in American English—they should not be a legal voter! How can an illeterate person vote??? that gives a baby the .
    ability to vote!
    Only LEGAL Registered voters should vote! Bill Clinton pushed this vote problem! THAT shows what kind of mind he has–a criminal mind like Kin Yung Ung!
    South Korea has sense enough to know which power they want to align with! Rocket Man could not pull a fast one on any other country–even a minion can out guess the NK leader.
    I do not think ANY other country’s leader and out think our great minds in WH on anything.
