As Democrats staged a regurgitated testimony from disgraced Michael Cohen, former attorney to President Donald J. Trump Wednesday, Trump was in Hanoi, Vietnam talking peace with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.
“It’s an honor to be with Chairman Kim,” Trump reportedly said. “I thought the first summit was a great success and I think this one, hopefully, will be equal or greater than the first.”
Trump told the leader of the hermit kingdom that he believes North Korea “has tremendous economic potential.”
Eight months after Trump brought Kim to the table in Singapore to begin discussing denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula, he hopes to accomplish that goal this time around.
“I hope and I think it’ll lead to wonderful it’ll lead to really a wonderful situation long term. And our relationship is a very special relationship,” Trump reportedly said.
Today’s historic meeting has predictably been buried by the mainstream press, who have intentionally attempted to turn the focus back to the phony Russian “collusion” investigation. Cohen, a convicted felon who is scheduled to report to prison in May to serve a three-year term for lying to Congress, has been testifying about his prior dealings with Trump throughout the day. There has been no “bombshell” news, as Democrats had hoped.
Trump has imposed sanctions on North Korea that have crippled its economy while demanding the the country cease its nuclear testing.
“The second summit comes amid a stalemate on denuclearization talks between North Korea and the U.S. Trump has signaled some flexibility on his previous demands that North Korea denuclearize before it sees some relief from crushing U.S. and international sanctions,” according to Fox News.
“I look forward to watching it happen and to helping it to happen and we will help it to happen,” Trump said.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.
— Jeff Sessions (@jeffsessions) April 1, 2020
If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
