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.

[AM950 Minneapolis] April 30th: John Bolton Wants the Libya Model for North Korea?

I appear on AM 950 in Minneapolis with Matt McNeil.  Today, Trump's National Security Advisor John Bolton said he supports the Libya model. For those who may not know, this is where the West and primarily the U.S. negotiated with Gaddafi to give up his nuclear weapons and ambitions in return for aid and international acknowledgement. By the way, it worked.  

Of course there was a slight problem . . . .  After the agreement, the U.S. turned on the Libyan leader and supported his enemies.  As a result, he was hunted down and sodomized and killed in a ditch.  So, while Bolton may like that plan, I'm pretty sure Kim Jung Un is not up for it.

This agreement is nowhere near done.  Lots to discuss.

[AM950 Minneapolis] April 27th: Trump And the Nobel Prize in the Same Sentence?

I appear on AM 950 with Mike McIntee.  North Korea's Kim Jong Un met with South Korea's President Kim today to discuss the end of a war that has been in armistice since 1953.  It is a potentially an extraordinary turn of events.  They are also discussing nuclear weapons.  This too is an extraordinary turn of events. President Trump is arguing that it is he has driven this and some are even suggesting that he should get the Nobel Peace Prize.  Yeah we will discuss this too.

Hand on for this one. It should be interesting.
