This guy is a killer and a liar, Mr. Trump

Kim Jong Un with kidsNorth Korea has a history of deceit and cannot be trusted despite claims it wants to talk peace, says a national security analyst.

An unprecedented face-to-face meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is tentatively set for May after a South Korean delegation returned from two days of talks and announced the dictator claims he is willing to denuclearize and negotiate a peace treaty.

Yet such talk is likely more of the same deceit and stalling tactics from a rogue regime that is improving its nuclear stockpile, says Bob Maginnis of the Family Research Council.

"We've played this game for decades," Maginnis complains. "They say, Oh, please talk to me, and so we go talk to them. Please give me this and I won't do this nasty stuff. We give them that and they do the nasty stuff."

The possibility of a meeting made headlines last week when South Korean officials announced a possible summit after meeting with Trump at the White House.

Hours after the announcement, news website Politico reported a summit could be in jeopardy after the Trump administration followed the vague announcement before announcing detailed plans that include preconditions North Korea would likely never agree to.

Among others voicing skepticism of a face-to-face meeting is U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who said in a statement that the U.S. must remain "deeply skeptical" of North Korea's intentions and "under no circumstances" grant "unilateral concessions" to Kim Jong Un.

No matter how good a negotiator Trump is, says Maginnis, the North Korean dictator is a devious man who oversees a brutal regime that routinely jails and kills its own people.

OneNewsNow reported in a January story that North Korea, despite a long list of competing despots and dictators, is listed as the world's most ruthless regime, citing an annual report from Open Doors USA.

"You need to treat him accordingly," Maginnis says of the dictator. "Don't give him an inch and certainly don't give them the stage that this guy speaks by sitting down opposite Mr. Trump."

If the President was listening to Maginnis for advice, he says, he would tell him not to agree to any summit.
