By obsessing over an unrealistic, up-front denuclearization deal with North Korea, the president and his advisers are turning down a dead end road.
Trump should realize there’s a limit to personal diplomacy, and that timing between summits is important. Still, walking away from a subpar deal was smart.
Trump is smartly maintaining economic sanctions on North Korea, but Kim is taking no steps toward denuclearization. Here’s what the U.S. should try next.
President Trump should lead Kim Jong Un to committing to an action plan and realistic goals while refraining from showering him with needless and unearned praise.
“We thought we would die in North Korea because it was exposed to the government that we believed in Christianity.”
According to his roommate, the guards beat Grace Jo’s father every night until he passed out, and his face was covered with blood. He died as a result of the torture and malnutrition.
We’ve seen the cycle happen too many times. Every administration thinks they know how to deal with North Korea — yet they too end up fooled.
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.
‘Babel’ contains a lesson about the long-term consequences and dangers of nuclear war that Trump and Kim Jong-Un would do well to pay attention to.
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.
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.
Trump managed to do exactly what President Obama failed to do during the Iran negotiations.
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.
