NRA TV host Grant Stinchfield, a staunch Trump supporter, admitted on Tuesday that he was not happy with some of the pageantry surrounding this week’s summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
In particular, he said that Trump was being far too gracious toward his North Korean counterpart, who in the past has threatened to launch nuclear weapons at the United States.
“I was not happy with President Trump for his touchy-feely, thumbs-up, all-smiles with a brutal dictator who sent Otto Warmbier back in a coffin,” he said. “Do not be all smiles with someone who is killing people as we speak.”
Stinchfield also admitted that conservatives would have gone ballistic if anything remotely similar had happened under former President Barack Obama.
“I don’t think the North Koreans deserve to be anywhere near our flag.” @stinchfield1776 stands with President Trump but believes that if Barack Obama would have handled the #TrumpKimSummit the way the president did, conservatives would be blasting him.

Some of Stinchfield’s fans, however, were none too pleased with him calling out the president, as they lobbed insults at him for daring to compare him to Obama.
Check out some of the reactions below.
Barack Obama would have dropped the sanctions, delived $400 million in cash on a pallet and let them keep their nukes. Oops, that was Iran. Sorry….

I disagree because we have to start somewhere. It's like saying President Nixon shouldn't have went to China in 72.

Really? What is our Pres to do just keep rolling the NOKO brutal regime down to the next guy to handle?Evidently if that person is you, you would rather critique optics than help the world. Our great President has offered one chance to NoKo to spend a couple days in freedom,

The difference is Obama was soft and would do nothing if Kim crossed the USA.
