He did WHAT?
Is this acceptable?
He RETURNED a salute. Really. Big Deal.
And don't say he shoulda just bent over backwards for a bunch of countries bullying him with sanctions to try and earn our respect cause no one responds well to bullying.

I'm not at all sure sanctions have much of an effect on the leadership of the nations at which they are directed but I do understand the reasoning. It's negative reinforcement (and please don't use the misused use of the term, negative reinforcement is not punishment). Behave badly and you don't get stuff, behave well and you get stuff. Stop treating your citizens like dirt, and we will make beautiful trade deals with you.
In this case, Kim has everything he wants. Mostly power, all the food he wants is a perk.

I KNEW IT!!!!
Trump just proved himself to be a North Korean plant, I bet he’s already given little Kim the nuclear codes.
You know one day Trump will actually do something genuinely bad and the 80-90% of the population not suffering from TDS will be so desensitised to your constant cries of Wolf that it will go unnoticed.
Y’all need to take a break, go outside get some fresh air. Forget about Trump for a day or 2
