What happened to his assertion that he would sit down at a table with leaders of these nations and have a chat? (In my opinion, it was the assertion of an inexperienced and naive man who wanted votes).

I never was sure why our president was awarded the Nobel Peace prize, and there is no better time than the present for him to prove that he is the man of peace I've never believed him to be.
