Trump feels confident in his relationship with Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea. He is looking forward to their next meeting. Of course, many other in the White House are not so pleased and feel that Kim Jong Un will make false promises and only tell the president what he wants to hear.
- The news only portrays the negative aspects of the relationship between the United States and North Korea, but President Trump is looking to the future, not the past. And what the news is reporting isn’t entirely accurate.
- At the first summit meeting, North Korea had agreed to work towards denuclearization, but they don’t seem to have made much progress. John Bolton, national security adviser has stated, “That’s why I think the president thinks another summit is likely to be productive.”
- President Trump has taken heat over the reports that North Korea is still developing missile bases after the first round of talks. He has responded by tweeting, “The story in the New York Times concerning North Korea developing missile bases is inaccurate. We fully know about the sites being discussed, nothing new-and nothing happening out of the normal. Just more Fake News. I will be the first to let you know if things go bad!”
- During the talks at the second summit, one of the topics will be that the two sides will discuss exactly what denuclearization means to each of them. Trump is optimistic and is no rush for North Korea to give in, probably because they don’t have the technology to be much of a threat right now. This is probably one of the reasons why North Koreans only want to deal with President Trump and not his advisers. They know he will get the job done without pressuring them.
