CNN host risk her career and praises Trump for North Korea meeting
A CNN host said Thursday night if President Trump can pull off negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong midget he would “go down as being a great President.” I think someone should check to see if Erin Burnett is still employed at CNN today. The remarks were made after a historical breakthrough with North Korea.
The commentary from the “Outfront” host followed the White House announcement that Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would meet “by May” in an effort to negotiate the denuclearization of North Korea.
“Just an extraordinarily evening and of course opening the door to the big question, if President Trump can truly solve this problem, that would be going down as a great president. And there’s no way around that. That is the reality here,” Burnett said at the end of her show
Earlier in the program Obama said there’s “no way” Trump is ready for a direct meeting with Kim by May, as announced by South Korea’s national security adviser on Thursday.
“There is no way that a former adviser to Obama’s National Security council threw cold water on the announcement saying there is “no way”President Trump can be ready, by May, to have a high stakes negotiation on denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. It’s just impossible,” said Samantha Vinograd, who also serves as a CNN national security analyst.
President Trump had an optimistic tone on Twitter saying “Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!”
