If any world leader or man whose held the title of President of the United States is deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize, it’s President Trump.
The initiative that Trump took to meet with Kim Jong-Un was brave, to say the least; but, it went so well that it is being called the “start of an era of peace” by South Korean President Moon Jae In.
Moon Jae In also called the Donald Trump-Kim Jong Un summit “historic” and “the fruits of an amazing imagination,” referring to Trump’s offer to meet with Kim Jong Un.
Here's a video on what the South Korean president said about Trump and Kim's meeting:
Chances are minimal-to-none that any other president in the position that Trump is in could have had a successful meeting with Kim Jong Un or brought peace to U.S.-North Korea relations.
Such a thing was almost unimaginable just a few years ago, and it's scary to think what things would instead be like if Hillary were in charge right now instead of President Trump...
Take a look at what people are saying about Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un on Twitter:
Apparently even the Pope praised Trump for his peacemaking in North Korea:
Fox News had the following to say on the summit that is being heralded as a "symbol of peace":
South Korean President Moon Jae In said Tuesday that this weekend's meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was the "start of an era of peace," countering skepticism by many experts who described it as a made-for-TV moment that lacked substance.
During their impromptu third summit Sunday at the Korean Demilitarized Zone, Trump and Kim reinvigorated their countries’ bilateral ties and agreed to resume nuclear talks. Trump also briefly stepped onto North Korean soil, becoming the first sitting president to do so. However, there has been no indication that the two nations are any closer to resolving sticking points that collapsed their previous summit earlier this year.
Moon, who briefly chatted with Trump and Kim on a DMZ village before the U.S. and North Korean leaders sat for a two-way meeting, described their summit as "historic." He also called the summit "the fruits of amazing imagination," saying it was arranged due to Trump's "unprecedented" Twitter offer for a meeting and Kim's "bold" decision to accept it.
Moon has pushed for continued diplomacy between the United States and North Korea, urging the two nations to find a mutual solution on the North Korean nuclear crisis. Before last week's event, North Korea had warned Moon against facilitating talks between Pyongyang and Washington, saying that the North will "never go through" South Korea again when engaging with the United States.
CBS News gave details on what went on during Trump's time in North Korea's demilitarized zone:
On Sunday, President Donald Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot on North Korean soil when he walked over into the Demilitarized Zone that divides the Korean peninsula. It was there that Trump held an impromptu and historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
After the roughly 45-minute-long meeting, Mr. Trump told reporters he and Kim had agreed to restart negotiations in the hopes of brokering a deal to start the full denuclearization of the peninsula -- a long-sought and elusive foreign policy goal of American administrations for decades. The president, who hailed his "great relationship" with the North Korean strongman, invited Kim to the White House to continue talks.
Through an interpreter, Kim told Mr. Trump, "I never expected to meet you in this place."
The president, meanwhile, called the meeting a "big moment" after years of bitter hostility between the two countries that dates back to the Korean War. U.S. forces have been deployed in South Korea since the height of the civil war in the peninsula, which has technically not ended because no armistice was ever signed. Large-scale fighting ceased in the summer of 1953.
In an earlier press conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Mr. Trump said it was too soon to know whether there will be a third summit with Kim following the unsuccessful summit earlier this year in Vietnam.
