President Trump Suggests He Has Been In Contact with Kim Jong-un

There has likely been some back channel communications with the Kim regime, but I would be very surprised if President Trump was in direct contact with Kim Jong-un like he appears to be suggesting:

President Donald Trump suggested in an interview Thursday that he has developed a positive relationship with the North Korean leader, but declined to say whether they have spoken.

No sitting U.S. president is known to have spoken with a North Korean leader. The two nations have remained in a state of war and without diplomatic relations since the Korean War ended in 1953 without a peace treaty.

“I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un,” Trump told The Wall Street Journal. “I have relationships with people. I think you people are surprised.”

Asked if he had spoken with Kim, Trump was evasive: “I’m not saying I have or haven’t. I just don’t want to comment.”  [Associated Press]

    Thomas Malthus argued that animals have no souls.

    Using his logic, it would seem an even more inanimate object, perhaps what may even be a virtual object, such as a Twitter insult, cannot count numbers, Donald, or potato.

    …unless you are simply missing a comma right before Donald.

    Grammar Hitler strikes again!

  2. Trump is a wuss. He won’t hold pre-emptive back channel talks with the DPRK.
