Tom McRae: Donald Trump did things his own way at the Singapore Summit

OPINION: Frank Sinatra's classic 'My Way' kept floating into my head as I watched Donald Trump's media conference after his meeting with Kim Jong-un.

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew

When I bit off more than I could chew

But through it all, when there was doubt

I ate it up and spit it out

I faced it all and I stood tall

And did it my way

It was a completely bonkers hour-long ramble on one of the most serious topics in the world today, trying to disarm a dictator of his nuclear weapons.

Mr Trump declared: "Anyone can make war, but only the courageous can make peace."

It was about the only sensible and accurate thing he said.

He gave himself credit for saving the lives of 30 million people in South Korea, because they won't have a North Korean nuclear bomb dropped on their heads.

He hopes the country's economy will be fine because of the beaches he's seen where they launch the missiles from look nice and would be a good spot for condos.

And he apparently has one of the greatest memories of all time.

His critics, and there are many experts who are deeply disappointed in the agreement, say he gave away far too much without getting anything back.

In other words - a bad deal.

But Mr Trump did it his way, and we really couldn't expect anything less.
