Trump-Kim summit: Trump says U.S. will end its ‘war games’ with South Korea

                       

While  remaining a very cynical person in regards to Kim, what a wonderful day for the world, for our President and more than anyone the long oppressed suffering people of North Korea.

Let's hope and pray these poor folks can join their brethren in South Korea and elsewhere in the world to a happier life. 

                                       
Malnutrition is an enormous problem in North Korea

When we think of poverty, we tend to focus on the individual people who are suffering n terrible conditions in some areas, and flourishing in others. But for North Korea, when you look at the country’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product), it really gives you an all-inclusive projection of just how badly the country is doing. In 2014, the entire country’s GDP was $1,800. For some perspective, South Korea’s GDP per person that year was $37,900.
