Establishment Media Silent: Trump Gets Unexpected Surprise Courtesy Of Singapore Citizens

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Since President Donald Trump’s first day in office, the liberally biased mainstream media has perpetuated the narrative that Trump is largely despised both at home and abroad, and that in other nations he is almost universally viewed as an embarrassment to the American people.

Thus, it came as no surprise whatsoever when the U.S. media essentially ignored the reception Trump received from cheering supporters upon his arrival Sunday in Singapore ahead of a high-stakes summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Coverage of the cheering crowds greeting Trump would directly contradict the “Trump is hated” narrative the mainstream media outlets push every day, so they simply ignore it and choose not to cover it.

According to a series of photos published by The Daily Caller, the president received a boisterous welcome from not just U.S. citizens who live in Singapore, but also from Singaporean citizens as well.

A couple photos show a pair of young American women wearing red MAGA hats and waving American flags, with one of the girls even wearing a pair of patriotic socks emblazoned with Trump’s name.

Other photos show citizens of Singapore, young and old alike, waving U.S. flags and holding signs expressing support for Trump and appreciation for his efforts at securing peace for the Korean Peninsula and broader Asian region.

Fans of the president had gathered at the airport to greet his arrival, andlined the streets of the route used to transport him via presidential motorcade to the Shangri-La Hotel, as well as the Singaporean prime minister’s residence, the Istana Palace.

According to The U.K. Independent, Trump landed in Singapore at about 8:20 p.m. local time, and proceeded directly to the hotel.

“It’s exciting, but I am also anxious,” a Trump-supporting woman, identifed only by her first name as Kim, told the Independent. “Kim (Jong Un) can change his mind at any time. Mr Trump also likes to get his own way.

“But if it works, it’s for the good of the whole world. It will make history,” she added.

That view was echoed by a 16-year-old U.S. citizen student named Christine McDougal, who lives in Singapore and cheered the president’s arrival with a friend.

“This is a such an important moment,” McDougal told the Independent, in what can only be described as an understatement.

Meanwhile, apart from the cheering crowds and pomp and circumstance of a major geopolitical summit, Christian leaders across Singapore were urging their church members and attendees to pray for God’s will to be reflected upon the high-stakes meeting, according to the Washington Examiner.

Anglican and Catholic church leaders alike asked that God provide wisdom and guidance to both Trump and Kim and prayed that they would find success as they sought to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and bring closure to a state of war that has been technically in effect since the 1950s.

Whether you fall into the category of those wildly cheering for Trump to emerge victorious from the meeting with a fierce communist rival or are praying that God’s hand will touch both leaders and guide them during the meeting — or both — there is no doubt that all eyes are on Singapore right now.

It would be nice if the U.S. media would cover all aspects of the summit — including the warm reception given to Trump — instead of not so subtly hoping for his failure, if only to rob the president they despise of yet another “win” he can tout with voters ahead of the 2020 election.

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday signed a ‘comprehensive’ document after a series of meetings in Singapore where the U.S. pushed for Pyongyang’s nuclear disarmament.

Trump was asked by a reporter if Kim agreed to denuclearize and he said, “We are starting that process very quickly.”

Trump did not refer to the document as a treaty or agreement. He said there will be a press conference in the next few hours.

“You’ll be seeing everything in a little while,” Trump said, speaking to reporters on Singapore's Sentosa island. “I think both sides will be impressed with the result.”

Kim, who was sitting alongside Trump, said through a translator, “We had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind and we are about to sign a historic document.”

A reporter asked Trump if he would be willing to invite Kim to the White House and he responded, “Absolutely I would.”    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/06/12/trump-kim-jong-un-sign-comprehensive-document-vague-on-specific-details.html

Trump CAVED to North Korea about war games out of the gate and has praised Kim effusively.  The contrast in his treatment of our ALLIES is stunning.  Trump criticized the Iran deal and THIS is what he (and gop) consider success?  WTF?  And he trusts Kim?  All I see is some photo ops, Kim's status in the world has been given heft he could never have dreamed, and Trump gave up South Korea (and our exercises)  getting squat in return.  Some 'negotiator'.

Quick question: If you're in the act of negotiating peace, why would you schedule war games? Are you trying to make it look like you don't actually want peace? What would you say if NK launched a missile while we were negotiating with them?

We lose nothing by canceling or delaying war games.

There is a reason that never happened, no U.S. president has met with the North Korean leader because, the leaders of North Korea have been murdering despots and, have not only censored communications in NK but, have a law that if any communication device has a dial on it, that person who owns it goes to prison as does THREE GENERATIONS of his family.

I tend to agree, I also see the same problem in reverse with many trump followers who also seem incapable of seeing any fault in trump. in their eyes trump can do no wrong and can only speak reality. Even when trump himself says" Words to me dont mean much, it's deeds that count." many still hang on ever word the man says as true gospel.

I saw a documentary a while back on changing peoples minds It showed that once a person had enough information on a subject they decided what they believed and any new information that contradicts that decision is quickly and easily discarded. Because we are constantly deciding ...   re-deciding does not take priority much. 

very interesting show. I was glad I saw it.

Yep the pendulum has swung. Not too long ago the shoe was on the other foot and Obama was the object of many's blind hatred as well.

We got a while to go, trumpets might as well get used to it just like the Obama supporters had to, cause I doubt this hatred of trump all goes away anytime soon. 

Obama has been gone a year and a half and is still repeatedly attacked daily by those who hate him. 

So put on your big boy pants and join the party it's not over by a long shot. 

2 and half years more in office ? and I dont look for the dissention against trump to ever be over anymore than I look for everyone to start liking Obama or even Bush for that matter. 

That's life and a personal choice we all make. To hate or not.

Can you not say that the Republicans are not as equally blind with blanket hatred? It certainly appears that way. and while the Democrat and Republicans in our country have disagreed on many important issues over the many years, there has never been the level of hatred between that is seen today.

This I feel will be totally detrimental to our country and its people as a whole, as it is a fact that 'Untied we stand, and divided we fall". It is past time for both parties to stop putting their party first, and again put our country and its people first. And yes, it can be argued til people are blue in the face that that is in fact what each party does. But, the truth is, it is not. And level heads who can put party loyalty aside for a moment can see that.

Just my own opinion.

You wanted to make it about Trump. I was really interested in what your thoughts were pertaining to the overall political situation we are faced with today. But, I guess that is not something you are interested in. Only how deviated and disgusting the left wingers are. 

Well....I tried, and I really wanted to know, I wanted to learn. But, I guess that is something that is not on your radar. So, forgive me, I will not comment to you again, and will not respond to your comments, as we obviously have nothing of any real value that can be discussed.

Since Singapore is a free republic, it's fairly safe to assume that its citizens and visitors are free to do pretty much what they want as long as it's lawful.  Since you seem to be very interested in crowd sizes in Singapore, I suppose you could contact the photographers and ask them.

I'll bet it was damn few who were there on their own accord.

HE DIDN'T GET ANYTHING!  Kim, on the other hand, got everything he has wanted, and more.  To pretend otherwise is ridiculous.  This meeting was nothing more than photo and propaganda ops for both.  Its so obvious Trump has an affinity to dictators and bullies, he was fawning all over Kim with praise, as if Kim  was as stupid and predictable as Trump and his need for effusive praise (they were so ready for Trump).  Negotiations aren't done from the top down, there is NO FOUNDATION, but Trump, not knowing squat, doesn't care about that anyway, he only sees the immediate gratification, substance not necessary because its only about optics and spin.  Try going back to previous republican beliefs and values as related to North Korea and others and explain the flip flops. If this is how Trump negotiate, what a fricken loser.

The Left claims to care about the poor but they only care about how they can use them for political advantage. They'd rather see the poor suffer than allow Trump's presidency to be seen as a success. There are 25 million people in N Korean living in desperate poverty largely because of sanctions, do you think the Left cares about what a Peace Treaty and Normalized Relations could mean to those poor suffering people ? Hell No ! Not if it will be seen as a Victory for the Trump Administration. Wishing hardship on the poor and middle class just so they can regain Power is despicable.

Multiple people who earn over $65,000 per year. 

https://www.chron.com/technology/businessinsider/article/Trump-won-t-stop-ripping-up-papers-so-staffers-12984603.php

An entire department of records management employees pieced materials back together "like a jigsaw puzzle," former employee Solomon Lartey told Politico, so the administration won't break the law.

https://www.infodocket.com/2018/06/11/government-documents-meet-the-guys-who-tape-trumps-papers-back-together/

Solomon Lartey spent the first five months of the Trump administration working in the Old Executive Office Building, standing over a desk with scraps of paper spread out in front of him.

Lartey, who earned an annual salary of $65,969 as a records management analyst, was a career government official with close to 30 years under his belt. But he had never seen anything like this in any previous administration he had worked for. He had never had to tape the president’s papers back together again.

Armed with rolls of clear Scotch tape, Lartey and his colleagues would sift through large piles of shredded paper and put them back together, he said, “like a jigsaw puzzle.” Sometimes the papers would just be split down the middle, but other times they would be torn into pieces so small they looked like confetti.

http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-kim-jong-un-summit-in-singapore-gives-north-korea-legitimacy-2018-5

Despite threatening to pull out of a June 12 summit with US President Donald Trump, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un flying to Singapore to meet Trump would give Kim the one thing he craves most: legitimacy.

North Korea has long wanted to be seen and treated like any other country, and its nuclear development was seen by many as a means to achieve that end. And now that the meeting will be hosted in a country away from the Korean Peninsula, that outcome appears closer than ever.

"What the North Koreans want to do is demonstrate that they are a peer partner of the US, and doing [the summit] outside of South Korea is a net benefit for them," Euan Graham, the director of the Lowy Institute's international-security program, told Business Insider.

Besides, what with the leftists screeching about how bad Trump is, how he has embarrassed America and how no one respects us, a meeting with Trump of all people would make your case that NK has gained status in the world moot.

You can't say how horrible Trump is, how disrespected he and America is, and then turn around and say Trump carries enough weight to make Un a world leader. Those two are incompatible.

The answer to your question has been available since June 5, 2018: 

Department Press Briefing - June 5, 2018

QUESTION: On – yeah, thank you. On Singapore meetings, the problem is North Korea doesn’t have any money for staying in hotels. So have they ever ask that the money pay for United States?

MS NAUERT: Yeah, I want to be clear about this, because this was something that swirling a lot over the weekend, and I think we tried to tamp this down. The United States Government is not paying for the North Korean delegation to stay. We’re not paying for their expenses. The White House has spoken to this as well. The State Department isn’t involved in – is not involved in every single technical detail of this meeting. This is largely being planned out of the White House with State Department support. So I’d have to refer you to the White House, but Sarah Sanders has been clear that they’ve not asked other countries to pay for this.

https://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/dpb/2018/06/282957.htm

The speculation that the US would pay for NoKo's expenses in Singapore began with the WaPo (what a shocker!):

The Trump administration has repeatedly stated that North Korea will not receive any financial concessions until it takes concrete and verifiable steps towards denuclearization.

Speculation that the U.S. is considering paying Kim’s hotel bill began with a Washington Post report earlier in June.
