The View Trump Meet Kim Jong Un


“The View” co-hosts on Tuesday discussed Donald Trump wanting to meet Kim Jong Un, sparking a debate about diplomacy with North Korea. Check out the video below.

Despite the North Korean leader being a brutal dictator, Trump said he would be “honored” to meet him, even labeling the controversial political figure “one smart cookie.” On the ABC talk show, that prompted Whoopi Goldberg to ask, “So, has he truly lost his mind? Has he forgotten what’s going on?”

Responded Jedediah Bila, “I think he’s trying to go with the line of him being the great negotiator, once again.” She suspected that Trump is trying to come off as the one who can fix the world’s problems because he’s a “narcissist.” Goldberg then went on to remark that Trump is suddenly trying to be diplomatic, but questioned if it’s too late.

“I think diplomacy is much better than puffing up, because when you puff up, you then have to act. You have to be prepared for that. I think the adults said we’re not doing that,” she said of the president’s administration. Joy Behar also called out Trump for the way he’s now going about it. “Trump thinks if he flatters him, it’s going to work somehow… That’s how he operates. He doesn’t understand,” she said.

Sunny Hostin is typically in favor of diplomacy, but asked, “Are you diplomatic when it comes to a dictator?” And Behar further wondered, “But when you say something nice about Duterte [of the Philippines] and Jong, doesn’t it legitimize them?” Goldberg replied, “It raises them up. I don’t know anyone else who’s been in this job who has done that. This is a first for me.”

Sara Haines further said, “It’s a slap in the face to these people who have been killed by these dictators.” Watch below.
