Real estate pitch-man turned apprentice U.S. president Donald Trump and North Korea’s bloody-handed tyrant Kim Jong-un signed a four-point “peace pledge” in Singapore.

In four bullet points, they laid out goals of future rounds of negotiations without specifying what immediate steps either side would take. Trump said there would be “many meetings” between the two men.

They agreed to establish new relations between the countries and committed to “build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean peninsula,” where the U.S. and South Korea are still technically at war with the North.

Kim reaffirmed that he would “work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula,” though there was no indication the two men had agreed on what that would mean.

And they also agreed to work together to recover “POW/MIA remains,” presumably American soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War.

The White House has not yet released the document, but the words were clearly visible in photographs taken when Trump displayed it to the gathered reporters.

Experts, pundits, and top twitterati reacted with dismissive derision — if not outright dismay:

And there you have it: appeasing Kim catapults nuclear proliferation.

Trump and his circle of idiots need to be removed from government. Now.
