CNN Anchor Admits Trump ‘Will Go Down as Great President’ if He Solves North Korea Issue

It is a cold day in hell as a CNN anchor has actually uttered the words “great” and “Trump” in the same sentence.

Anchor Erin Burnett said that if Trump is able to solve the issues between the United States and North Korea, then he “would be going down as a great president.”

Well, just you wait darlin. Donald Trump is a man of his word, and he gets the job done.

The commentary from the “Outfront” host followed the White House announcement that Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would meet “by May” in an effort to negotiate the denuclearization of North Korea.

“Just an extraordinarily evening and of course opening the door to the big question, if President Trump can truly solve this problem, that would be going down as a great president. And there’s no way around that. That is the reality here,” Burnett concluded.

Earlier in the show, a former adviser on the National Security Council under President Obama said there’s “no way” Trump is ready for a direct meeting with Kim by May, as announced by South Korea’s national security adviser on Thursday.

“There is no way that President Trump can be ready, by May, to have a high stakes negotiation on denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. It’s just impossible,” said Samantha Vinograd, who also serves as a CNN national security analyst.

On Thursday night, Trump tweeted out, “Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze,” he continued, “Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!”

If (or should I say when) Trump meets with Kim Jong Un, he will actually make history as the first sitting president to ever meet with a North Korean leader.
