It would be good for the world if the president is right when he tweets, "There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".
There is only one catch: what Trump claimed was untrue.
If North Korea has even a marginal ability to destroy one U.S. city with a nuclear weapon, the United States is effectively deterred from using nuclear weapons against it (except if the USA could count on destroying every one of Kim's nuclear-tipped missiles in a surprise first strike - but that's why North Korea will move them around or dig them in deep).
Virginia's 2018 Midterm Primary is Tuesday
Congress, the victor of Tuesday's primary election only becomes their party's representative in the upcoming general election. Unlike the General Election in November, where the victor represents their district in the Virginia General Assembly or U.S.
The two leaders signed a document pledging to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. Other issues related to nuclear weapons, including ballistic missiles, were not even mentioned.
But the president has fawned so much about Kim since their meeting, you might wonder if he is simply flattering a man with nuclear missiles or exalting the kind of leader he truly admires?
This is not to argue that the Singapore summit had no value. "No more nuclear testing or rockets flying all over the place, blew up launch sites", Trump wrote. And Trump's eagerness to halt joint military exercises - and remove US troops - undermines USA leverage further.
But turning this possibility into reality will be extraordinarily hard.
North Korea is and will remain totally deterred from attacking the United States, because it would be utterly destroyed in a massive American counter-strike.
The experts are right, but they do not see this situation as necessarily a cause for panic, after all, more evenly matched pairs of nuclear powers, like India and Pakistan, or the United States and Russian Federation, have managed to avoid nuclear war for decades. Much the same could be said of Libya, given Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi's fate.
Dennis Rodman Breaks Down In Tears Discussing Trump-Kim Summit
Visibly emotional, Rodman broke down in tears during the interview , praising the POTUS for wanting to meet with Kim. Rodman's relationship with the North Korean leader has been maligned and prodded by a pugnacious media.
But the agreement didn't spell out how the process would be verified or how long it would take. "He speaks and his people sit up at attention", Trump said speaking to reporters outside the White House. I stated that there was no need to engage in too much geopolitical strategising, intelligence analysis, weapons capability calculations, or predictions about the future, and that there was nothing to lose by breaking the mould regarding the West's approach to North Korea. The president even spoke of the North's potential as a venue for real-estate development and tourism. A mass movement drove his predecessor from office and carried Moon, who openly advocated for peace with North Korea, into power. Popular unrest would be sure to follow.
Bannon continued that Trump's meeting with Kim helps to curb Chinese influence in the Far East. All of this turned Ronald Reagan's maxim - "trust, but verify" - on its head, to something like "Don't verify, but trust".
"We are especially concerned with the North Korean military, which operates as secret police, punishing all forms of dissent", U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
Mr Trump also used language often employed by North Korea to describe those exercises, calling them "provocative" and "war games". True, we wondered why he gave Kim the meeting without extracting anything of substance in advance.
"We have a really great relationship for the first time ever", Trump said.
"And then Xi Jinping met with Kim in Dalian and all of a sudden, we had an about face by the North Koreans". Chris Murphy, D-Conn., summarized the case against Trump nicely: "We're not against diplomacy". Kim is about 170 centimeters (5.8 feet) tall, about 20 centimeters (7.2 inches) shorter than Trump, according to media reports. China and Russian Federation have already started to loosen sanctions.
