Will a North/South Korean Summit Lead to Another With Trump?

South Korean President Moon and North Korean Chairman Kim met for another summit this week.  This is not their first and they've promised that it won't be their last.  They both made promises to deal with some political, cultural and economic issues.  While this is promising, the issue the world is looking at is the issue of the North Korean nuclear threat. This, sadly, hasn't seemed to change much.

Kim Jong Un has promised to destroy a nuclear testing facility and a rocket testing lab but won't do anything until President Trump first does a series of things.  Unfortunately, this is reminiscent of what happened to the team of U.S. negotiators during the Bush years.  Trump opened himself to this with his behavior early on and then agreeing to a summit without conditions in June in Singapore.

The problem that Kim faces is both internal threats and external ones.  Both are critical to his survivial and the Americans seem to have never come to terms with this. The result is that they have never been able to thread the proverbial needle.  

I'll appear on I24 International News tonight to talk about what the Americans need to do, if anything to dive the conversation forward.
