Fabricate?

What I see is that Trump had the EXACT SAME result as Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc... That result is that NK did not bomb us or anyone, but that they have not been disarmed either.

Maybe you can explain how Trump getting the exact same response as Obama makes him strong and Obama Weak.

What I did see, is Trump played a dangerous game of Chicken with Nuclear Weapons, and much of the rest of the sane world has distanced themselves just a little further from the USA, "just in case". In your world of Isolationism, that may be a win, but I see us as being increasingly isolated, more vulnerable, and with less "friends" in the world to stand beside us in the event that one of Trump's many gambles goes terribly wrong.

Yeah, thanks to "strategic patience" practiced by that traitor who held the office for the last 8 years.

Obama would have sent North Korea laundered cash. And Donald Trump's "dangerous, reckless rhetoric" just saved 170,000 innocent lives.

In the meantime, the media and the democrats continue to incite violence and hatred in this country.

No path to 270.

Kim already won the contest with the Great Negotiator. He has nothing left to prove.

If he solves the issue in a good way I would be happy to give him credit for it, he has not done anything as of yet to resolve the issue. You should not assume you are capable of speaking for me, you aren't qualified.
He got China to publicly state that they will NOT support NK in a conflict which starts with NK aggression against the US.

That basically eliminates any possibility of NK ever attacking the US.

NK's perception of the world was always based on the idea that China would support them unconditionally in any war. Now that Trump has blown up that perception, OUR country is safe from attack because NK would never enter a war without China's fists to back them up.

South Korea and Japan still remain at risk, but the safety of those people has always been a secondary concern.

wonder if Trumps critics will now admit he did the right thing?

Whichever side you think won, fine, whatever works for you. I'm just glad to see things deescalate, for now anyway.

Of course NK wasn't going to send missiles off to Guam. Kim J just enjoys watching America salivate at the thought of a preemptive strike. Like teasing caged up Dobermans with a piece of raw steak.

Nope, they have nothing to say now that Kim has not done what they bragged about. Every time Trump draws a line, up goes another missile or another bomb test. If it were not so serious, it would be funny to see how the Trumpees start some thread about how Trump pinned Kims ears back, and then it is proven that their esteemed leader failed miserably.

Winning !! Yeah, but it ain't Trump.

I wonder if his acolytes will now admit he's basically accomplished nothing with his blather over NK?
