Fox News’ host Shepard Smith wasn’t entirely convinced that the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un ended up giving the U.S. that much.
“The United States made concessions in exchange for no hard promises,” he said. “Stopping joint military exercises with South Korea while North Korea makes a vague commitment to work together towards denuclearization. The agreement the leaders signed is very short on specifics.”
“America demanded complete verifiable and irreversible denuclearization… There is no guarantee of that. Not even words to that effect. And we may not know for years whether we’re actually now on that road or left in the potholes of paths past. But Kim Jong Un, he wanted the photos. The seat at the table. He wanted the legitimacy that came with the event. The handshake with America’s president. And he wanted those military exercises with the Americans and the South Koreans that happened every year to stop. Kim Jong Un got it all for actually doing nothing.”
