- Donald! Trump!
US President Donald Trump is to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for a second summit by the end of February, the White House says.
The announcement came after Mr Trump met top North Korean negotiator Kim Yong-chol at the White House.
He had been expected to deliver a letter from Kim Jong-un to Mr Trump.
Little progress has been made on denuclearisation since their historic summit in Singapore last June. No venue has been announced for the new summit.

Good to see how the current administration is encouraging its young people to show respect for veterans and indigenous people…Posted 6 months ago
I fear those kids don’t know what they’re shouting or why. All those kids were somehow organised enough to bus in from Kentucky, all buy MAGA hats and protest against abortion.
Someone organised that for their own agenda (probably the school) and they should be held accountable, but the reality is that the future that the smirking kid in the pictures being banded around the net had will now be utterly ruined because no college will touch him with a bargepole, he’ll be shamed across the net as public enemy number one and be lucky to get a job all based on one stupid decision.
Make him sit down with the guy he’s smirking at and listen to his stories, teach him something. Something positive should come out of the bloody mess that this world is inPosted 6 months ago

Yep – those pesky Kentucky Catholics by the looks of it
The Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School have issued the following statement:
We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.
The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion.
We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement.
But yeah, apparently they’re all for dignity & respect…Posted 6 months ago
It seems that story is not all as reported. There was another group there protesting and being abusive which were not mentioned in the original article.
The quality of news reporting is so poor these days, seems most of it is done from other people’s accounts on social media.Posted 6 months ago
The Hebrew Israelites?
Yeah, they apparently didn’t like the students’ behavior either, but they were a bit more vocal about it

Two other participants in the Indigenous Peoples March, and a photojournalist covering the march, told US media they had heard people chanting “build that wall” and “Trump 2020”.tinribzMember
They were waiting for a bus. If you watch the full video you’ll see the Black ‘preacher’ calling them incest kids, shooters, crackers, faggots etc. They do a few school football chants to drown him out. The drum guy then walks straight over to them and starts banging it in that kids face.

Read up on this a bit and looks like the school kids took exception to the aggressive preaching of the black Muslim group and started fronting IP to them causing a confrontation. Tribal elder placed himself inbetween two groups to stop it escalating. Lots of aggro from both groups and eventually calmed down, wouldnt say either side some across that well but tribal chief showed dignity and did the right thing.Posted 6 months agodannyhMember
I know what is in the pictures and videos featuring the Covington Muppets.
Smug, entitled, smirking little shits who need a **** good hiding. If that little scrote had stood in front of me like this I would have punched his lights out. Usually, I am anti-violence but what can you do against someone who will hide behind mummy’s skirt and the PR company mummy can afford to hire to lie for you? At least if you’d decked him first it would be something. The whole ‘martyrdom’ thing is going happen anyway, so might as well get one in.
“I wasn’t smirking” says smirking, privileged little shit.

People still going on about those kids without looking at the whole thing? FFS! Grown adults threatening kids with murder and beatings, being burnt to death, one skank offering a BJ to first person to punch the kid, grown women with large social media following looking for names and addresses of kids to be made public, school and town on lock down. All on the back of a few seconds of video capture which only tells a fraction of the story and from one side at that? Get a grip, you’re as bad as those you think are being bad. Although I doubt it will happen (them being white boys and all), I wouldn’t be that surprised if there was some police action taken against some of these people over incitement to violence.Posted 6 months agoakiraSubscriber
So rene59 what do you make of all the anecdotal evidence coming from people who have attended the school or experienced the school through sporting events etc? They all seem very negative and imply that the kids behaviour wasn’t unexpected. I don’t agree with the threats etc but if a school is harbouring an environment that leads to racism and hatred then that should be aired.Posted 6 months ago
If there is evidence then let it be used to take action against those that deserve to be brought to justice. In a legal and fair way that is. Not a mass hysteria outbreak on social media. The very same people who rightly call out Donald Trump and the like for their bullshit and twisting of events, making up facts etc are doing the very same thing here.
A bit like those pedo hunters on facebook etc out for vigilante justice without the full facts. Can’t think of anything that could go wrong eh? The Labour MP Jo Cox murdered by a nutter on the back of lies and manipulation spread by the far right, could easily happen here to one of those kids by a far left nutter. Or is it ok when the people targeted have different politics to you?Posted 6 months ago
