Jay Bookman stands analyzes the Trumpeted allegations of aggrandizement. A snippet (emphasis added):
In fact, just this week, North Korean officials failed to show up at a long-scheduled meeting with U.S. military officials on repatriation of remains, suggesting that progress on that front remains difficult if not impossible.
That’s troubling in its own right, to see an American president lie about and create false expectations about the remains of the fallen. At any other time in our history, under any other president, to fake such an announcement would be a major scandal. But under this president, we all know it to be part of a long-running pattern of behavior in which Trump claims credit for great success that in fact never materializes.
