    Fox News host Shep Smith tore into President Trump over the North Korea summit on Tuesday, saying the president gave Kim Jong Un everything he wanted, without getting anything in return.

    Smith lamented that the agreement signed by Trump and Kim at the historic summit did not contain language guaranteeing “complete, verifiable, irreversible” denuclearization by North Korea.

    “America demanded complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization…there's no guarantee of that, not even words to that effect,” Smith said.

    The agreement, signed by the two leaders in Singapore Tuesday, commits the U.S. to provide unspecified “security guarantees” for North Korea, in exchange for a denuclearized peninsula. But it does not provide details.

    Trump also said Tuesday that the U.S. and South Korea would halt some of their joint military exercises, reportedly without consulting South Korea.
    Smith, who has not shied away from criticizing Trump, said that the meeting was largely advantageous to Kim.

    “He wanted the photos, the seat at the table, he wanted the legitimacy that came with the event, the handshake with America’s president,” he said. “Kim Jong Un got it all, for actually doing nothing.”

    Smith also listed human rights abuses in North Korea, which were apparently not discussed in Tuesday’s talks.

    “A regime that tortures and murders its own citizens, imprisons children for the actions of parents and grandparents, and a leader who has committed crimes against humanity,” Smith said.

    Shepherd Smith should stick to commenting on something he knows something about like the weather.

      When closet troll Omar typed Step Smith, I thought it was about the racist Stephen A Smith of ESPN, not prissy boy Shepard of Fox News.

          Do you think these liberal pissants would have the same reaction had it been Obama sitting down with that little tool?

              Obama won the Nobel Prize for giving a speech. His foreign policy can best be described as a dismal failure. If Trump is able to forge a lasting peace and denuclearization of Korea he will actually deserve the Nobel Prize. If he wins it, the meltdown of the lunatic left will be epic.

                    Again, my conservative radio station(Rush, Hannity) was concerned that NK has gone back on every single agreement in their history. The is hope we don't make any concessions until we have tangible, measurable results PRIOR to lifting any sanctions or give any relief.

                    They also mentioned he will need his euro allies to apply any type of pressure against Iran.

                    It wasn't a hit piece or anything but he seems to be pissing off everyone at the same time. He may want to take turns since he will need some of them in other situations.

                    Funny that I've been a drudgereport guy since the early 2000s. Good stuff.

                    Not sure of his name off hand...I'm usually on sports radio but I'll switch for commercials. Not every conservative tows the trump line. Which is fine. I think the message was we need to be very cautious.

                    AFAIK Trump didn't agree to anything that can't be switched off or undone in a heartbeat if NK doesn't cooperate.

                      Just trying to keep the liberal narrative straight here....I thought FNC only reported what Trump told them to and parroted the Trump talking points and was only a voice of the Trump WH.

                      Which is it?!?!

                      Eff the political talk. What Trump pledged, to stop military exercises with South Korea and Japan and to think aloud about eventually pulling out of the region altogether -- without consulting with our allies -- has set the region on its ear.

                      The Trumpster has gone and done a double dare. It's boom or bust time.

                      This....We've already performed 2 of the 3 scheduled joint military exercises with SK this year and the next one wasn't scheduled until the end of the year to my understanding.....What else did we give up? There is nothing done that can't put back in place at the drop of a hat....

                      Just wondering is it only me or does anyone else feel like knocking those stupid glasses off Lyin' Cryin' Chuck Schummer and then kicking him right in the nutsack?

                        think aloud? He campaigned on pulling out of Europe and Asia, and letting them pay their own military bills.

                        why shouldn't we? It's not the 1940s anymore.
