While the mainstream media is focused completely on President Donald Trump and the ongoing government shutdown, some very important work is taking place by the administration that very few pundits are talking about.
And it could be the most important meeting in this century.
So what the big networks are keeping out of the spotlight?

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be meeting with North Korea’s ex-spy chief Kim Yol-chol at an unnamed location in Washington sometime this week, as hinted by U.S. officials. Politico reports that this meeting is an important precursor for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to officially visit Trump at the White House.
Though the North Korean denuclearization may seem to be happening at a leisurely pace, Trump has been highly connected with Kim Jong Un, sending letters back and forth to each other regularly.
“He wrote me beautiful letters,” Trump said last year at a West Virginia rally.
As Trump faces a slew of issues and stubborn opposition on major issues, his relations with North Korea to keep tens of millions of the world’s civilians safe are swept under the rug by the mainstream media.
They do NOT want to give the president credit for this unprecedented feat.
Ultimately, the two global leaders are gearing up for a second summit. Although talks to denuclearized have stalled, Trump and Kim reportedly both want to move things forward and come to a resolution.
Meanwhile Sweden, a nation with very diplomatic ties to North Korea, hosted officials for matters of international importance today. Pundits believe Stephen Biegun, U.S. envoy to North Korea, attended the meeting.
A similar meeting between North Korean and Swedish foreign ministers in Stockholm last March led to the first summit between Trump and Jong Un.
Swedish officials have been a valuable liaison between the U.S. and North Korea, so it’s no wonder that pundits predict a second summit VERY soon.
The urgency for the summit to take place is more heightened than it’s ever been.
Just in December, Jong Un declared that unless the U.S. dismantles its weapons, then Pyongyang won’t budge either. Trump heard this and made plans to get to the drawing board when no one else was listening, nor cared.
Will these seemingly high-stakes, private meetings be the reason U.S. and North Korean relations improve?
We can only hope.
Just don’t expect the mainstream media to talk about it… unless, of course, it doesn’t go Trump’s way.
