Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un finally met face to face last night and the whole spectacle transpired more or less how you probably expected it would.
Trump exchanged pleasantries with the leader famous for assassinating his own family with chemical weapons and then they signed a vague agreement that commits the United States to serious concession while Kim Jong-un walks away with his nuclear weapons.
From the Washington Post:
Yet despite the bonhomie, the agreement, just over a page long, was perhaps most notable for its lack of details. Kim made no specific commitment to relinquish his nuclear arms and ballistic missiles or a timeline in which he would do so. Rather, he committed solely to abiding by a mostly symbolic agreement he had made during a summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April. [...]
Asked why his negotiating team had failed to lock down specific promises from Pyongyang, Trump protested: “Because there’s no time. I’m here one day . . . But the process is now going to take place.”
As part of their agreement, Trump has pledged to stop holding joint military exercises with South Korean forces. Trump also expressed a vague desire to withdraw American forces from South Korea entirely.
Kim Jong Un made no specific concessions.

I'm sure Trump is going to open a hotel in North Korea when he's out of office, so maybe he didn't get "nothing."
