Kimmel Mocks Trump’s Claims of Denuclearization: He Just Wanted to Make It Look Like He Did Something Big

‘He was not leaving the summit without claiming he made a deal’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
KIMMEL: "Trump claims he got North Korea to commit to destroying a major missile testing site. But, and this is a quote, he said, we didn’t put it in the agreement because we didn’t have time.” Usually when Trump signs an agreement with a foreigner, it’s a prenup. And those are — Look, I don’t know what the real back story is but I know here’s how the whole thing went. Trump wanted to make it look like he did something big. Whether he did something big or not. He was not leaving the summit without claiming he made a deal. He sets the meeting, he has the sit-down, he hears what he wants to hear, blah, blah, blah. As soon as the meeting’s over, he runs out, calls a press conference, declares victory. Everyone goes home, Kim Jong-un does nothing differently at all, and we go back to our lives too. In fact, the only thing we know they signed was a declaration of friendship. For real. There they are. Like they’re signing each other’s yearbooks before they leave for summer break. Then trump holds it up. This declaration of friendship. It was especially awkward for the waiter who had to come over to inform trump that he’d inadvertently signed the dessert menu."
