President Donald Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was a major step towards peace on the Korean Peninsula. Both Trump and Kim left the meeting with a sense of optimism of what could be.
But while most of the world was cheering the welcomes change of tone by North Korean’s leader, some on the left aren’t buying it. One of the things the left is most critical of is a movie trailer the White House created specifically for Kim Jong Un promoting peace.
While most of America realized the amazing work done in the trailer, especially considering that Kim Jong Un is well-known for his appreciation of American pop-culture. The left characterized it as being full of “inspirational nonsense.”
You can watch the trailer below and see for yourself if that’s true:
The video showed a bright future that could come from working with President Trump. It showed a future of innovation, friendship, and peace. One of the most paramount moments in the entire trailer was when it showed a satellite view of North Korea at night, which currently shows a country with little power. It then showed the country light up, with its major cities being seen bustling with power.
This was the intent of the trailer that was shown to Kim Jong Un. Scott Adams, who is most well-known for creating the Dilbert comic strip, but as of late has made a name for himself writing about persuasion, pointed out that Trump is using the tools of persuasion with this video.
This is how the people who don't understand the tools of persuasion see the video Trump shared with Kim. I'm glad I'm not in that reality! https://t.co/9uOqcCY5Kd

Scott Adams isn’t somebody who should be simply overlooked when it comes to persuasion. He was one of the few people who predicted Trump’s Presidency because he saw Trump using persuasion as a tool to mobilize disenfranchised voters. More remarkably is the fact that Adams doesn’t even align with Trump on most issues, as he admittedly claims he aligns with Bernie Sanders, and against Trump on economic issues.
But the left doesn’t understand persuasion. They don’t understand why Trump won to begin with, so they surely don’t understand his strategy with Kim Jong Un, which is working better than anybody expected.
The video created by Trump’s White House hopefully had a profound impact on Kim Jong Un. It laid out two futures, one of famine, poverty, and war; and one of peace, prosperity, and friendship. It ends with the words “The future remains to be written,” letting Kim know that the outcome is up to him.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
