Moments like this one have to be pointed out because they are so incredibly rare. Trump has done a good job bringing North Korea to the table but you certainly don’t expect to hear that from someone who works for the New York Times. You definitely don’t expect to hear him say it on CNN.

NY Times Reporter: Trump Deserves ‘Enormous Credit’ for North Korea Breakthrough
New York Times national security reporter and CNN contributor David Sanger gave President Donald Trump credit on Tuesday for a recent breakthrough in North Korea talks.
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota pushed Sanger on the credit Trump is due after South Korea announced Tuesday it would be holding its first summit with North Korea in more than a decade in late April. North Korea also vowed to halt nuclear and missile tests while talking with the United States and its souther neighbor. The announcement came after a senior delegation returned from a visit to the North where they met leader Kim Jong Un.
“But David, in terms of giving President Trump the credit, don’t you need to rewind the tape back farther than the Olympics?” she asked. Camerota’s reference to the 2018 Winter Olympic games held in South Korea was to acknowledge it was a time viewed by many as a major step forward in improving relations between the two Koreas.
