At first glance, it had all the makings of an international disaster.
I mean; Trump meeting Kim? Are you freaking serious? This isn’t Cartoon Network, you know. There’s so much at stake here, and I’m not talking about fat jokes, cheeseburgers and love-love situations.
I’m talking about nuclear wars, World War 3 and their relationship that so mirrors a pair of high school kids that clearly like each other but are too shy to admit it so they go around acting like they hate each other.
But then a miracle happened: they didn’t get into a catfight.
In fact, they seemed to hit it off, and the entire world finds itself breathing a huge sigh of relief, as the iconic duo walked away not with a knife in hand, but heart-shaped hands.
All was well.
But it seems that the world’s set for another emotional roller-coaster, for news has emerged…
There could soon be a 2nd Trump-Kim summit.
Clash of the titans
According to The Guardian, The White House is coordinating a second meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un after the North Korean leader apparently sent a “very warm” letter to the US president.
It’s reported that Kim had requested for it in the letter.
And the request was evidently approved, as the White House has expressed on Monday (10 Sep) that the administration was “already in the process of coordinating” the summit.
The unprecedented move comes amidst rumours that their meeting here wasn’t actually as “successful” as media proclaimed, with talks apparently “stalling”.
Just last month, Trump reportedly requested for his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, to postpone a planned trip to North Korea because “because I feel we are not making sufficient progress with respect to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula”.
But it soon changed, with the North Koreans hosting a recent military parade that reportedly subbed a display of the country’s nuclear missiles, with a focus on economic development. Additionally, North Korea has sent back the remains of US soldiers killed in the Korean war (which took place between 1950 and 1953).
And perhaps the most optimistic sign of them all is that of national security advisor, John Bolton, who has said that Kim told the South Korean president North Korea could denuclearise “in one year”.
Following the change in the military parade, Trump had this to say:
“This is a big and very positive statement from North Korea,” Trump tweeted. “Thank you To Chairman Kim. We will both prove everyone wrong! There is nothing like good dialogue from two people that like each other! Much better than before I took office.”
But according to Bob Woodward (who recently released Trump’s all-new favourite book Fear: Trump in the White House), Trump nearly screwed up big time, with a draft tweet that could be interpreted by the North Koreans as “a sign of imminent US attack”.
“He drafts a tweet saying ‘We are going to pull our dependants from South Korea – family members of the 28,000 people there,’” Woodward said in an interview with CBS.
Trump, however, has denied the allegations.

Although questionable, the first has been hailed as a “historic success” by the media… and certainly appeared so.
However, we can’t help but quake in our boots at the prospect of these two great leaders stepping into the ring again, because we never know when one will throw a sudden sucker punch.
As such, let’s keep our fingers crossed that World War III doesn’t actually happen, whether it’s because of a careless fat joke or Donald Trump having corn for hair.
Also, please host it in another country this time round. Because after all…
