Washington - Former Vice President Joe Biden says he is troubled by the outcome of the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Biden says in a statement released Tuesday that Trump has given North Korea multiple “wins up front without getting anything in return.” He says those include an easing of pressure on Pyongyang, the suspension of U.S.-South Korean military exercises and the summit itself, which gave Kim legitimacy.

Biden says that in return, Trump got only “vague promises” to begin negotiations on North Korea’s nuclear program, reducing U.S. leverage.

Biden is accusing Trump of taking “an inexcusable and irresponsible approach” to the summit by not fully preparing for it, and he is urging the administration to focus on denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.

Hey, Biden why did we give Iran pallets of cash from the coffers of US taxpayers? To negotiate on the premise of good faith?

I don't disagree with your general opinion but the money to Iran was from frozen Iranian assets, not U.S. taxpayers.

I know he is upset that President Trump did not send a boatload of cash like his buddies Bill Clinton sent to North Korea and Barack Hussein sent to the Ayatollahs in Iran. It's time for Biden's handlers to watch him more carefully because his dementia is getting worse and worse. Good By Joe.

I so hope Uncle Joe runs in 2020. The Demorats will be trounced so mightily, that maybe they'll just go away.
