Tom DeLay: Summit Sets Gold Standard in US Diplomacy

(Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live")

By    |   Tuesday, 12 June 2018 05:03 PM

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un to hammer out a denuclearization deal sets a new gold standard in U.S. diplomacy, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"This is changing diplomacy for a generation – I hope he writes the book, 'The Art of Diplomacy,'" DeLay told "America Talks Live," a reference to Trump's 1987 bestseller, "The Art of the Deal."

"This is a huge win. Donald Trump showed his prowess, went to meet a thug, sat down with him, developed a relationship with him, and got him to commit to denuclearizing the Korean peninsula without having to give up anything, really."

DeLay, a Texas Republican, said Kim has started to see the United States as "something different."

"I think he sees the United States as what is real," DeLay told hosts Miranda Khan, John Cardillo, and Gina Loudon. "He's had education in the west; he's had a little experience in the west. He understands that we are the most powerful nation in the world.

". . . We have an economic power that he can benefit from, and he believes Donald Trump when he tells them that we're not going to put up with nuclear weapons.

". . . I have to admit the way Trump is handling foreign policy is just mind boggling. And I am so excited about it. No messing around, we're going just going to be straight with you."

But DeLay believes, despite Kim's 180-degree turn, he will still rule his country with an iron fist.

"The way controls his people will not change, unfortunately, and people that disagree with him, they get rid of," DeLay said.

DeLay is the author of "Revival! Revolution! Rebirth! A Radical Call from the Former Majority Leader of the United States House of Representatives," written with Wallace Henley and published by WND Books.
