Though Kim Jong Un has a long train ride back to Pyongyang to ponder how the collapse of Thursday’s talks in Hanoi might impact his relationship with Trump, senior officials in his government are already signaling that the detente between the two geopolitical rivals might be over, having deliberately undermined President Trump by contradicting his version events during a midnight press conference – even going so far as to suggest that Kim has “lost the will” to continue negotiating (since North Korea’s “reasonable” position “will never change” – something that US intel analysts have been saying for months).

And as we wait for a rebuttal from President Trump (who will arrive back home much quicker than Kim despite the greater geographical distance), it’s worth noting that the reaction to Trump’s performance in Hanoi – which provoked some twitter wits to joke that he managed to find another way for America to “lose” in Vietnam – hasn’t been as negative as one might have expected.

In one of the few examples of true bipartisanship during the Trump era, lawmakers from both parties chimed in on Twitter and on the floor of the Senate to praise President Trump for having the temerity to walk away from the table.

Confounding Trump’s allies and his enemies, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer even praised the president during a speech on the Senate floor for choosing to walk away instead of accepting an inferior deal that would have made the US less safe in the long run.
