President Trump issues a blistering attack on North Korea, as he takes aim at the country’s leader.

The president fired off a series of tweets Saturday questioning why Kim Jong-un would insult him by calling him old when he would never call him short and fat.

He also slammed critics who don’t want the United States to have a positive relationship with Russia.

The president wonders when the “haters and fools” will realize Russia can play a role in helping with North Korea, Syria and terrorism.

Additionally, President Trump says Hillary Clinton begged Russia to be allies with the U.S., but her and former President Obama couldn’t get the job done.

    Say what?

      Basically, You’re Not a Russian Fan And Want To Keep It That Way Between Our Countries. Or Simpler F#ck’m.

  • brandehhh

    I’d prefer a NO on closer ties to Russia.

    • PatrickJ

      I understand that you and perhaps others feel that way, but I think the world is just less dangerous if the three biggest nations on the planet maintain an open dialogue with each other

      • brandehhh

        I get that, I just don’t trust any of them and do not think Trump should either. I don’t even trust our government, so people/countries that aren’t American are extremely low on my list of who to trust in this world.

        • PatrickJ

          Well, that’s why in my comment I only stated that we should keep an open dialogue. Trust is something that comes only after a long period of observation, if even then.

          • brandehhh

            I have no problem with communication, just keep them where they are.

          • PatrickJ

            Understood.

  • nfcapitalist

    North Korea… the communist success story, cannibalism, murder by the authority of tyrants, ah yes, life governed by terror and insanity, who wouldn’t want that?

  • john9hoffman

    Go Trump!

    Go trump

    To all of you ladies and gentlemen contributing to this commentary; due to your coherence, competent and knowledgeable interchange, acceptance of disparate points of view and willingness to meet heated commentors with reason and many more like things, this commentary has actually been elevated and become a forum. Cudos to you all and to OANN for providing the content that inapired it and the emvironment through which it could take place!

    • Tim maher

      Thank you for the kind words. It is much different here than in other forums where calling people insulting names is pretty much the order of things. Thanks to OANN for providing us the space too!

    • PatrickJ

      Well said, Pezgun. The conversations here on OANN are the best I have seen on any site.

  • PatrickJ

    One thing I like about One America News. It’s legitimate. It’s real. That fact never changes.

  • PatrickJ

    Pretty cool that we have this platform to communicate. Let’s don’t mess it up. Let’s keep it open.

  • Jenny O

    Thanks, President Trump!
    I got a huge laugh from your tweeted response to Kim Jong-un’s insults.
    And keep up the good work you’re doing on this Asia trip! You’re doing a great job as POTUS.

  • PatrickJ

    Thing I like about President Trump is that he handles people easily. almost like he was born to it. In fact, he actually was. His Father gave him that. For all of his schooling and higher education, all that did is teach him how business works.

    What was missing in all of that expensive education was this. How you deal with people to your advantage.
    Wharton didn’t teach him that. Not by a long shot. Trump got that from his father, and it made all the difference in the person he was to become.

  • PatrickJ

    Best advice I can give you here on a late Sunday night is to get your priorities in order. Most important thing is to first decide what you believe in. Because many Americans don’t really know what they believe in at this point. That wasn’t meant to be a joke. That’s actually the reality we all face, going forward.

    • Tim maher

      Hear, hear Patrick.

  • PatrickJ

    Besides that, I just simply like the man on basic principles. He loves this country. He loves our Veterans. He loves both our active and retired Military. And they most certainly love him. There is no bullsh#t about him. He calls it like he sees it. Gets him in trouble sometimes, but it endears him to most of us. At least it does to me.

    • Sailor 74

      Get to know your ‘enemy’. I think thru Trump the USA can bring Russia into a partnership to end ISIS. After all, we are friends with Japan?

      • PatrickJ

        Trump has that ability within him, Sailor. He has that rare talent of bringing people together before they try to kill each other.

        • brandehhh

          I actually don’t see this. America is fighting itself, divided in half and its just escalating. I fear that the murders will increase. At the very least the assaults and fights amongst everyone.

          • PatrickJ

            A lot of what you say is true, but I think we are a better people than what you see on the nightly news. The majority of us anyway.

          • brandehhh

            I don’t have cable and don’t watch the news 🙂 I read OANN and my local newspapers/websites

          • PatrickJ

            Good for you. I got rid of my television about six years ago. My only connection with the world is by reading books each evening and the news I get from the computer and people like you. OANN is my favorite. Sometimes I hang out with my next door neighbor and talk politics, because he is also a staunch Conservative. Since he has cable, we usually watch OANN on his tv.

          • brandehhh

            I usually talk politics with my mother, she has cable and introduced me to OANN. I have a toddler, there’s no reading books unless its homework for my college major 🙂

      • landy fincannon

        One thing that concerns me, is Donald’s close ties with the Council om Foreign Relations.

        His recent promotion of an Obama appointee, Jerome Powell, to head up the Fed Res. Is a prime example.

        • PatrickJ

          I don’t have an answer to everything out there on short notice, landy. But I’ll look into it and get back to you.

          • landy fincannon

            When Chris W asked him who would be advising him during the third debate, Donald said it would be Richard Haass, my heart sank.

          • PatrickJ

            Why?

          • landy fincannon

            Hillary has a long relationship with the CFR and has sang their praises repeatedly.

            Have you spent anytime on their roster page?
            Scarbrough
            Brzezinski
            Ginsburg
            Gorsuch
            Gorelick
            Gingrich
            McCain.
            B Clinton
            Are just a few of the names you’ll find.

          • PatrickJ

            No I haven’t landy. I will give your comment the respect it deserves and look into it.

          • landy fincannon

            Thank you, that’s all one could ask. I’m just a little perplexed.

          • PatrickJ

            Don’t be. This thing will work itself out. We will come out on the other side a whole lot better. It just takes time.

        • Huks

          After WWII Patton had ex-Hitlerits running much of the German Government. When questioned about it he said “find me other people that know how to run it and I will hire them.”
          I suspect this is kinda the same thing.

          • landy fincannon

            It doesn’t stop there though. Donald has made appointments from the Trilateral Commission, ex Bilderburg attendees, and at least six Goldman $ posers.

      • Tim maher

        What a novel idea. Banding together to defeat a common enemy. This is a complex concept that neither Rinos (John McCain and Lindsey Graham) nor democrats will ever grasp.

      • Sane_Person37

        Wouldn ‘t it be great to have the USA, Russia, China and others working together to rid the world of the people and countries who are really fouling it up.

    • TruthBTold

      Obumnuts or any of the previous Presidents since Reagan have not achieved the respect (or at least the acknowledgement of power) of the President on the international field as this one. And this within the first year. He is a very rich man. However, he grew up among the construction workers putting up his father’s buildings. This is where he gets his mannerism of speech. Straight to the point and no B.S. (given or taken). You judge a C.E.O. by the people he hires as advisers and in key management positions. Trump’s picks proves he knows who can get the “job” done. Criticism is made of the fact that he has no military experience. It’s a good thing to have, but it is not necessary to be an effective commander and chief (ie: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D.Roosevelt to name 3).

      • PatrickJ

        I am glad you see it the way I see it. It is confirmation of what I believe in.

        Your comment made a real difference. Thank you.

    • Tim maher

      I too appreciate that President Trump says what he means and means what he says in plain English with no political BS. After every Obama speech I always felt that I needed a hot shower to scrape off all the snake oil.

    • Sane_Person37

      I’ll take straight talk over crafted silver tongue BS any day.

  • PatrickJ

    I like this President. But then, you knew that already. The most probable reason I like him is the reason I voted for him in the first place. That reason being, that he was not actually a Politician, nor is he today as I write this. He’s just an ordinary American. A very rich ordinary American of course, but nonetheless, I think I can deal with his riches. What? You want someone poor and destitute leading us?

    Not me. This government we both hate and love at the same time is a business. Biggest one on the planet.
    I think we need someone to run it. I think Donald Trump is that person. I think we need a business person.

    If you accept the premise that our government is in fact a business, then ipso facto, you need a leader who understands how business works. A lot of us looked long and hard at that particular equation when we voted. I haven’t been disappointed in the least with the decision I made.

    • Sailor 74

      Pat: You are spot on. Politicians completely don’t understand business. As a 74 year old ex-ceo it is time to get our house in order. It is time to look at our adversaries and seek them out to join the US and other countries against the likes of ISIS. And you are so very correct, government is a business, and politicians have no clue how to run a business! They can’t even spell P/L!!!

      • PatrickJ

        God bless you for your wisdom and your background in business. It is certainly needed right now on the fight we face going forward. Kudos.

    • Sane_Person37

      Only 2% of obama’s cabinet had any business experience.

    • HarryObrian

      Yes, I voted for him also but as an alleged businessman I keep hoping he’ll mature someday because comments like this from him “The president wonders when the “haters and fools””…. only prove that money can’t buy intelligence or class.
      I also wonder when he’s going to keep half of his original campaign promises and not keep blaming an impotent Congress.
