Hannity: Trump's Plan in North Korea Showing 'Significant Progress That Is Great for the World'
In his Opening Monologue, Sean Hannity said that President Trump's rendition of Reaganesque "peace through strength" in the Koreas is "seeing significant progress."
Hannity said Trump began his overtures toward the North's dictator, Kim Jong Un, by increasing sanctions and "squeezing" its lone regional ally, China.
"[Ronald] Reagan called the Soviet Union the Evil Empire... Trump called [Kim] Little Rocket Man," Hannity added.
He said that, although the press continues to slam the president for his Korean diplomacy, Trump's strategy is "seeing significant progress that is great for the world."
Hannity said no one could have imagined the two Korean leaders together at the so-called "truce village" of Panmunjom, grasping hands and crossing each other's border freely.
He said Kim is willing to give up nuclear weapons completely in exchange for an end to the Korean War, which has been paused since a 1950s armistice.
That development, coupled with Moon's call for Trump to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, has ruffled the press, Hannity said.
"Everyone in the fake news media -- their heads just exploded," he said.
