Bolton claims Trump doesn’t necessarily believe Kim on Warmbier

National Security Adviser John Bolton walked back President Trump’s statements during the summit that he took North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ’at his word’ concerning the death of Otto Warmbier. Bolton was quoted saying that Trump does not necessarily believe Kim’s claim that he was unaware of Warmbier’s apparent mistreatment.

Again for the the people who do not understand negotiating tactics, you do not call the other leadership LIARS and hope to continue your negotiations. That is a Diplomacy 101 mistake.

It's exactly the same as a rape accusation. You take their word but their word doesn't stop you from investigating and changing your mind if facts come to light which change the situation. It's just the courteous thing to do with someone you are negotiating with, much like it's courteous to treat a supposed victim that way.

Can we negotiate a deal with Rocket man first or do we have to nail Trump for something first?

It would be wonderful to see the brutal regime come to an end, for the peninsula to be reunified in our lifetime.

I don't care if he accepts it or not. It sounds harsh but what was the rating for NK at the time. A level 4 as in don't go or was it 3 I would really reconsider that trip. Either way the kid went to an unreasonable place and did something really stupid.
