    Coming Soon – The Trump Pyongyang Hotel

    In many ways, Trump’s strategy with North Korea has its parallel in his strategy with Black Americans in the election. Granted it did not exactly pull in the Black vote in 2016, but support for him among our Black brethren continues to rise.

    And what was the strategy? “Why don’t you give US a try? The Democrats have essentially done nothing for you and promised you everything election after election.”

    I find Trump’s strategy involving Rocket Man equally brilliant. North Korea’s chief trading partner is China – in fact, they’re probably their ONLY real trading partner of worth at this point. And what has it gotten them? A starving populance, an economy drilling down so far that you’d think it was for oil exploration. Trump says “hey, do you know what you COULD have if you’d stop with the BS and the sabre rattling? Look what your neighbor SOUTH Korea has – the Olympics (they DIDN’T have to share – they did it as a gesture) – immense textile and automobile manufacturing. What has CHINA ever given you?” And that should get Rocket Man thinking, especially since THIS time the United States isn’t coming to the table with a fat check in exchange for promises to behave and a container ship loaded with Bush’s Beans…and Beans….and Beans (among other things).

    Remember that Potemkin Village ski resort? Imagine, Kim, if it was filled with actual paying guests coming to ski. Jobs for your people. And no Bush’s beans on the menu.

    I’ll bet that was part of that four-minute video. Maybe looking at the potential Trump Pyongyang may have made him realize that China really isn’t “all that and a bag of chips.” Speaking of “chips” – maybe we should have Kim and his mobile film crew walk through an American supermarket if and when he visits here. What do you think the North Koreans would think if they saw the bounty the evil capitalists can avail themselves of by merely leaving their homes. Even the poorest American on public assistance has aisles and shelves of food and sundries to choose from. And not a single aisle marked “Tree bark.”

    The urban legend that it wasn’t political rhetoric that turned the people of Russia around vis-a-vis the West. It was watching episodes of “Dallas” and “Dynasty” and seeing how those capitalists REALLY lived that got to them.

    “The United States has been taken advantage of for decades and decades,” Trump said at a press conference on the second day of a two-day summit in Canada.
    He said he had suggested to the other G7 leaders that all trade barriers, including tariffs and subsidies, be eliminated.

    “You go tariff-free, you go barrier-free, you go subsidy free,” he said. “I did suggest it and people I guess were going to go back to the drawing board.”
