What’s incredible about President Donald Trump is that he promises Americans these amazing outcomes on a multitude of subjects… just like every other politician who has held high office.
The only difference is that Trump — unlike nearly anyone in history — delivers. He actually literally does what he tells us he’s going to do and he’s proven it many times. More than once, he’s left the press and his critics with feet in mouth.
That might be more true than ever today, after the Associated Foreign Press just broke the news that the President has been in direct talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The bombshell came not long after Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Earlier, the media was made aware of potential plans for a face-to-face meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un.
US officials have held direct talks with North Korea on setting up a historic summit with its leader, President Donald Trump has announced.
“We have had direct talks at… extremely high levels,” he said, adding that five locations were being considered for the Kim Jong-un meeting.
He was speaking as he hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Florida.
Mr Abe commended the US president’s “courage” in agreeing to meet the North Korean leader.
There have been fears in Tokyo that Mr Trump’s plans for bilateral talks could sideline Japan, a key US ally and neighbour of North Korea
elations between the two men appeared cordial. It is the second time Mr Trump has welcomed Mr Abe to his Mar-a-Lago resort and they are expected to fit in another round of golf, a shared passion.
It is a break for the two men who are both battling pressure at home: Mr Abe is facing cronyism claims while Mr Trump has been dogged by a Justice Department inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, claims he had an affair with an adult film star, and scathing attacks by a former FBI director on a book tour.
