Default Trump to meet Kim Jong Un to discuss North Korea Denuclearization

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...rea/408781002/

Quote:
WASHINGTON — President Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May for high-level talks over the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, a South Korean official said outside the White House Thursday.

The extraordinary and unexpected opening came through shuttle diplomacy by a South Korean delegation arriving in Washington Thursday.Trump heralded the development as a "major announcement" after speaking with the South Korean president.

Kim has agreed to a suspend missile tests while the talks go on, and there was no insistence that the United States and South Korea suspend joint military exercises.

"I explained to President Trump that his leadership, and his maximum pressure policy, along with international solidarity, brought us to this juncture," South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-yong told reporters after meeting with Trump at the White House.



We'll see what happens. If this ends up happening, my opinion on the effectiveness of sanctions will change.

I've said forever that if Trump's able to get this done, it will be worthy of universal credit. If he can leverage NK into full denuclearization after all the idiotic regime toppling we've done, that's big.

Currently we're looked at as perhaps the greatest threat to world peace. If this is handled correctly (and we can stop with these other pointless/endless wars)... hopefully we can walk some of that back. I'll believe it when I see it, though.

That's what I hope for as well.

What's very heartening to me is South Korea is taking a huge lead on this. We are letting regional leaders take more responsibility.

That to me is how we should assert ourselves if we're determined to maintain this "world police" role. In a way that doesn't seem unilateral or heavy-handed, alienating us from major parts of the world.

I totally get people who are concerned that Trump could spark a war, but in a way it's that exact level of "unhinged" that probably is getting NK to take this seriously...

So the Senate voted 98 to 2 in favor of sanctions against Russia and the House a whopping 419 to 3 (517 to 5 overall) but Trump didn't do it. Just saying.

Russia is different than North Korea bud. Trump won. Hillary lost. And it had nothing to do with Russia. Get over it.

I don’t trust neither.

We should all be careful on what will happen.
