One would think that due to all the pressure surrounding the North Korea denuclearization summit and the already tense relationship between Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un, Trump would be doing everything he can to get ready for it and ensure that things go smoothly. That’s what any normal, reasonable person would do, especially under this amount of scrutiny… But Trump isn’t normal.
Earlier today, Trump discussed the upcoming summit with Jong Un, which is scheduled for June 12 in Singapore. In speaking about how he was preparing, Trump revealed that he wasn’t doing much preparation at all, because according to him it’s all about “attitude.” Yup, we are so, SO screwed.
I think I’m very well prepared — I don’t think I have to prepare very much. It’s about attitude, it’s about willingness to get things done, but I think I’ve been preparing for this summit for a long time, as has the other side.”
Trump continued to say that he believes “this isn’t a question of preparation.” Instead, Trump says it’s “a question of whether or not people want it to happen, and we’ll know that very quickly.”
We all know how well things go when Trump flies by the seat of his pants (or diaper) and leaves things up to his “instincts” which have proven to be horrendously inaccurate every single time.
Trump also spoke of the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula:
They have to denuke, if they don’t denuclearize, that will not be acceptable. We cannot take sanctions off — the sanctions are extraordinarily powerful. And I could add a lot more, but I’ve chosen not to do that at this time.”

One of Trump’s biggest weaknesses is that he is oblivious to just how out of his league and incompetent he is, so he is unwilling to do the work to improve himself and become a half-decent president. This summit will prove to be like all of Trump’s attempts to work with other world leaders – absolutely disastrous.
