President Trump wants a ‘historic’ deal to make him look like a great leader—exactly the mistake previous presidents made in negotiating with North Korea.
Compare the dialogue between the two leaders now to six months ago, when many feared we were headed for all-out war.
While the summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un was historic, it remains to be seen whether it accomplished much good for the world.
Democrats, both in Congress and in the media, were all too happy to see President Trump pull the plug on a meeting that would be good for America, and wish for an economic recession.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and U.S. President Donald Trump met for the first time Tuesday morning in Singapore, ahead of one-on-one talks.
Kim terrified the world with the uptick in nuclear and ballistic missiles tests over the last two years, and the world is anxious, even desperate, to get him to stop.
Jacob Heilbrunn, editor of The National Interest, digs into how conservatives tend to look at their past foreign policy records and how American foreign policy has been shaped over time.
If foreign policy is all about optics, resonance to the domestic audience, and regime stability, Kim Jong-Un, Xi Jinping, and Moon Jae-In are toast.
There may have been a real White House briefing with real White House officials, but The New York Times couldn’t be trusted to accurately summarize what the White House official said. And it wasn’t on a minor point.
Trump managed to do exactly what President Obama failed to do during the Iran negotiations.
From the beginning, large sections of the Left saw potential improvements with North Korea as just another chance to attack the president.
Had the dictator pulled the lever before Trump did, it would have been seen as an embarrassment for the president. So at least the summit imploded on Trump’s terms.
‘Based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate …’
The recent meeting of the Korean leaders and upcoming Trump-Kim summit in Singapore represent progress that most South Koreans assumed would be impossible to see in our lifetimes.
Just like Iran, Kim Jong-Un comes to the negotiation table in a weak position following President Trump’s big recent foreign policy decisions.
Madeleine Albright: ‘The so-called #TrumpDoctrine is simply bellicose rhetoric strung together with contradictory statements. Bluster is no strategy, Mr. Trump.’
Why do intellectuals still cling to Marxism? The answer is that Communism is ‘idealist’ in the strict philosophical sense. And that’s not a good thing.
There are plenty of reasons to be suspicious that North Korea hasn’t fundamentally changed its goals, even if it has had to change its tactics.
We should not put the cart before the horse in the face of a deceptive and ruthless Communist regime engaged in a charm offensive for Western audiences.
