DONALD J Trump loves winning. It’s all that matters to him. And he’s just won in Singapore ... BIGLY. The Donald has brought Kim Jong-un, arguably the most dangerous man on the planet, in from the cold. In doing so, he has reduced the chances of Armageddon on the Korean Peninsula. He probably still won’t win the Nobel Peace Prize. But perhaps he should. For now, Kim Jong-un, supposedly the most obstinate dictator on earth seems to have rolled over quite quickly.

Beat that Barack Obama! Suck on this, all you liberal MSM and NeverTrumpers! Who’s the boss now, President Xi Ping of China? Remind me what your name was again, Prime Minister – Bieber, is it? – of Canada. How are you going to wriggle out of this one, all you buttoned up bien-pensants at the Nobel Prize academy? These were just of the few things President Trump didn’t actually say at … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Trump Just Became the Nobel Peace Prize Committee’s Worst Nightmare
