In Washington, DC in the county of Asia, the rumor mill was full of news last week about a possible media event in the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas during President Trump's visit to South Korea. The other part of this rumor that Trump would have a third summit or at least a brief meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was also circulated – but no White House or Blue House official would commit to anything (well , at least not for me).
But something told me not to be disappointed. For one reason, I have raised hopes: Donald Trump's strategy for dealing with North Korea has always been to adopt the old regime of dealing with the Kim regime and set it on fire. What is more wrong with such diplomatic decency than a meeting planned without notice and with almost no preparation? However, such a meeting has the potential to bring Washington and Pyongyang back on the road to a new kind of nuclear-free relationship. It also points to the possible elimination of Kim's nuclear weapons. In other words, it was just too good to forgo both sides as I saw it.
TRUMP MEETS WITH KIM IN DMZ, BECOMING FIRST US PRESIDENT TO PUT INTO THE HERMIT KINGDOM.
No risk and many possible rewards, why not try? Trump's biggest advantage in dealing with Pyongyang is that he simply does not care about the so-called right kind of diplomacy. His mission, as always, was to bring the American people to safety and prosperity. A meeting within the DMZ, even though it was quickly and more closely scrutinized, where Chairman Kim was on the all-important issue of denuclearization, is clearly trying to push such an agenda forward. Trump took a chance for peace and tried it with little disadvantage.
In my humble opinion, the President has done more good in the Korean question than President Obama in eight years in the last year and a half.
showman, the president did not disappoint. At a historic meeting where Trump was the first incumbent US President to travel to North Korea, he met with Chairman Kim along with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and also met with Kim. Although no major deal has been announced, only the mere crossing of Trump on North Korean territory is an advance, a sign that trust is building and that both sides can work towards a better future. Remember, history is all about gorgeous looks that change the heart and mind. Most people can not recite the details of a particular contract or document that has written history, but they always remember the photo they made. Trump delivered this Sunday.
To be honest, this is a day that I never thought I would see in my life. During the dark days of 201
But just as with all things involving President Trump, those who can not stand it. His distinctly unconventional and unorthodox style as commander-in-chief quickly struck. A message from the expert class – or the so-called foreign policy "experts" of both parties, who have hailed the Iraq war, the disaster in Libya or countless other international debacles that cost our country trillions of dollars and too many American lives – called Trump a fool for that.
That's just wrong. Although I have always believed that Progressives are taking their attacks on Trump too far, I can not say that I agree with everything the President does. For one thing, I'm not a fan of Trump's "shoot-from-the-cellphone" turrets. I get frustrated when he does the facts wrong on some of the most basic questions. But on this question, the idea is that he's doing everything he can to force North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons, and one day join the Brotherhood of Nations, not just smart statecraft, but common sense as well.

I'm sorry, I will not let the good outweigh what's annoying. In my humble opinion, the President has done more good on the Korean issue in the last year and a half than Obama did in eight years. North Korea is no longer testing nuclear weapons or long-range missiles, and Trump seems to be friends with Kim. Is that all weird? Yes. But is it better than a war that would kill millions of people? For sure. And although we still have a long way to go to declare that North Korea is no longer a threat to America, I love what the President does. And the same goes for the American people.
And if President Obama has been awarded a Nobel Prize for next to nothing, I believe there is only one obvious problem, namely ensuring that Donald Trump receives the award as well.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE BY HARRY KAZIANIS
