Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday, Sean slammed the mainstream media for “openly rooting” for the President to fail on his attempts to totally denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
“As the President’s historic talks weigh in the balance; despite what you’re hearing from the mainstream media in this country, we have every reason to believe and be hopeful about potential upcoming talks with North Korea,” said Hannity.
“Last week, President Trump initially canceled the summit; sending a strongly worded letter to Kim Jong Un after the despot authorized a series of aggressive statements,” he added.
“As you could imagine, the corrupt media used that letter to trash the President,” said Sean. “They’re openly rooting for the President to fail.”

SUMMIT SAVED? North Korean Officials in NYC Ahead of Summit
A senior North Korean official departed for the United States over the Memorial Day weekend with the hopes of reviving the June 12th summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump; sparking new speculation that the high-stakes meeting is back on schedule.
“Kim Yong Chol, Pyongyang’s longtime spy chief and a vice chairman of the ruling Workers’ Party, was spotted at Beijing Capital International Airport, where he boarded a flight to New York after first meeting with Chinese officials. As the Hermit Kingdom’s black operations chief, Kim has had a bloody hand in some of the rogue nation’s most notorious attacks on South Korea and even U.S. cyber targets,” writes Fox News.
The President welcomed Kim’s aide early Tuesday morning, saying “We have put a great team together for our talks with North Korea. Meetings are currently taking place concerning Summit, and more. Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea, heading now to New York. Solid response to my letter, thank you!”
The potential summit was thrown in doubt last week when President Trump abruptly canceled the event; saying Kim’s “outright hostility” prompted his administration to withdraw from the meeting.
SUMMIT SURVIVES? Trump Praises Kim’s ‘WARM STATEMENT,’ Says ‘Time Will Tell’
President Trump resurrected hopes of his high-level meeting with Kim Jong Un Friday, thanking the North Korean leader just hours after he suddenly canceled the summit scheduled for June 12th in Singapore.
The President praised the communist leader on social media after Kim released a statement saying he was willing to meet with Trump “in any way,” adding an eventual meeting will hopefully lead to “enduring prosperity and peace” between both nations.
“Very good news to receive the warm and productive statement from North Korea. We will soon see where it will lead, hopefully to long and enduring prosperity and peace. Only time (and talent) will tell!” tweeted the President.

Trump abruptly canceled the high-stakes talks this week after multiple statements from the Hermit Kingdom insulted top aides and officials; including Vice President Mike Pence and National Security Advisor John Bolton.
“They very much want to do it, we want to do it, we’ll see what happens,” Trump told reporters this week. “Everybody plays games.”
