Former Vice President and possible 2020 Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden had some rare praise for President Trump on Thursday, after Trump abruptly ended a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
“The president did the right thing by walking away,” Biden said while speaking at the University of Nebraska, the Lincoln Journal-Star reported. “But diplomacy matters; preparation matters. The president treats everything like it’s a real estate deal.”
Biden added that he hopes that Trump “learned a very important lesson.”
Biden is not the only Democrat to praise Trump’s decision. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday also said he approved of Trump’s decision while speaking on the Senate Floor.
