Trump comes away empty-handed at Singapore summit

Donald Trump was sucked into a situation that was way over his head since the man has no capacity for diplomacy. N. Korea's Kim Jong-un walked away with precisely what he went there for, to make Trump look like the idiot he is. Past presidents had the gumption to realize what had to precede a meeting of this nature, an honest compliance in denuclearization. Instead, the Oval Office lunatic settled for "little else than the release of three U.S. hostages in May." He even boasted that he, Donald Trump, didn't even need to prepare for the meeting, that he would wing it. Well, he did and failed.

As far as an agreement on denuclearization is concerned, The Daily Beast described it as "complete pablum"...
“Reaffirming the April 27, 2018, Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
All T-rump was able to accomplish, basically, was to get Kim Jong to commit to the same thing he has agreed to for years, to...
 "something like total global nuclear disarmament or bilateral arms reductions with the United States. And all North Korea will do, per the declaration, is work 'towards' this objective."
A third-grader could probably have done better.
