Trump just agreed to the "Chinese plan" aka "Double Freeze"

Just heard this on MSNBC, and damned if it isn't true:

Here's the Chinese plan, which is what Trump just agreed too:

"As a first step, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) may suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the suspension of large-scale U.S.-Republic of Korea (ROK) military exercises"

And the US' response?

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley dismissed as "insulting" the proposal that Beijing has touted for months and repeated at an emergency Security Council meeting Monday, held in response to another nuclear test that North Korea claims involved an advanced hydrogen bomb.

"When a rogue regime has a nuclear weapon and an [intercontinental ballistic missile] pointed at you, you do not take steps to lower your guard," Haley said at the meeting. "No one would do that. We certainly won't."


That was September 2017.
