Donald Trump just put Barack Obama to shame with a major announcement that is sure to have the former president fuming.
Daily Vine reported that after a year of rising tensions, Trump just got North Korea to agree to sit down with the United States and talk about the possibility of denuclearization. The White House confirmed that Trump has accepted North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s dramatic offer to meet.
“President Trump greatly appreciates the nice words of the South Korean delegation and President Moon. He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un at a place and time to be determined,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain.”
This is humiliating for Obama since the former president was not able to make any progress with North Korea in the eight years he was president. However, Trump only needed one year to bring North Korea to the table.
“Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. 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!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Vice President Mike Pence hailed North Korea agreeing to talk about denuclearization as “evidence that President [Donald] Trump’s strategy to isolate the Kim regime is working.” He added that the U.S. has made “zero concessions” and “consistently increased the pressure” on Kim.
