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.

[KNUS Denver] April 27th: Peace on the Korean Peninsula?

I appear on on KNUS Denver with my old buddy Steffan Tubbs.  Is there finally going to be peace between the North and South Koreans.  Kim and Moon met today, only the third time leaders of the two nations have ever met. Further, North Korea's Kim is scheduled to meet with President Trump sometime in June. Trump and Kim are expected to talk nucs. It is difficult to conceive of Kim willingly giving up nuclear weapons or truly anything the U.S. is willing to provide in exchange that would motivate Kim to do so. Of course, Trump is likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal which may actually make coming to agreement with the North Korean leader even harder.

I will discuss this and more on the program. I'm excited.

[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.
