In meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump once again displayed his affiinty for dictators and the hollowness of his self-legendary negotiating skills.

"We have done these exercises for years with the South Koreans and so I would just ask the president, why do we need to suspend them?" Several of those hours were spent discussing the details of the joint "comprehensive" agreement with Kim.
Other commitments also didn't make it into the text, he said, including his own plan to halt "war games" with South Korea.
