An ex-Trump campaign advisor just brutally mocked the White House over North Korea debacle

The patently absurd commemorative coins that the White House had minted to celebrate the planned summit between the United States and North Korea have already been rendered pointless and consigned to the dustbin of history now that Trump has officially canceled the would-be historic meeting.

You can’t commemorate something that never happened.

A.J. Delgado, a former member of the Trump campaign and a campaign advisor on the transition team, took to Twitter to mock the coin and the Nobel Peace Prize that some of Trump’s most fervent acolytes were all but sure he was destined to receive. The president himself even previously alluded to the possibility of him cinching the prestigious honor.

Delgado wasn’t done there, and zeroed in on the coin fiasco by mocking whichever “idiot” signed off making the Kim Jong-Un coins for a summit that “almost certainly wasn’t going to happen.” Her implication that everyone around the president should have expected the summit to fall apart says a lot about the low bar of expectations that Trump enjoys.

No one is surprised when one of his signature efforts fails because no one really has confidence in him to accomplish anything. Since Delgado had an up-close experience with the president and his team, her tweets also speak to the atmosphere within the inner circle. By now, his closest advisors should have the foresight to quash ideas like this obviously ill-fated coin.

While it’s certainly funny to mock this coin situation, the underlying issue is far from a laughing matter. Trump has thrown away what could have been a real opportunity to create a safer world, and begin the long path towards detente and lasting peace between North and South Korea. It remains to be seen if the president swings back into his hyper bellicose rhetoric and starts threatening “fire and fury” and nuclear war, but it seems squarely within the realm of possibility.
