I don't quite understand this. From the link above:
Quote:
White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah said the White House "did not have any input" into the design of the coin, which was ordered by the WHCA.

"Since 2003, White House Communications Agency (WHCA) members have ordered a limited number of commercially designed and manufactured souvenir travel coins for purchase. These coins are designed, manufactured and made by an American coin manufacturer. These souvenir coins are only ordered after a trip has been publicly announced. The White House did not have any input into the design and manufacture of the coin," Shah said.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders reiterated a similar point in Tuesday's press briefing.

"This is not something the White House has anything to do with," she said. "We don't have any input on the design, the manufacture, the process in any capacity. This is a standard procedure by the White House Communications Agency, which is made up exclusively of career military officials. And these coins are designed and done by that organization."
So these coins were minted without the WH knowledge or approval?

Then there is this:

White House Gift Shop Website Crashes After Discounting Commemorative U.S.-North Korea Summit Coins

Quote:
......the coins minted in celebration of the proposed union earlier this week are still very much up for sale. Now, the White House Gift Shop is trying to clear its inventory of the memorabilia by promoting them as the “Deal of the Day.” The price has dropped from $24.95 to $19.95. It was a deal so good that the gift shop website crashed hours after Trump’s announcement.

So listening to music (Tonic/Lemon Parade ) and musing this morning as to what are the odds for a Dotard/Rocketman summit actually happening. I am predicting three to one odds that the two will meet since they both crave world attention and acknowledgement. As for Lil Kim giving up his nukes, million to one he will not since that is his only symbol of power on the world stage. For dictators, fear trumps respect any day.
