Trump agreed to a meeting with Kim Jong-un, drawing praise even from some of his critics.
The Atlantic wrote a story titled, “What If Trump’s North Korea Bluster Actually Worked?”
The New York Times wrote a story titled, “With Snap ‘Yes’ in Oval Office, Trump Gambles on North Korea.”
Trump fired his Secretary of State after he criticized Russia. Mike Pompeo is expected to pick up where Rex Tillerson left off.
But Pompeo’s nomination in the Senate could take weeks. Until Pompeo is confirmed, he won’t be able to contact the South Korean foreign minister, much less the North Korean foreign minister.
Now, when the South Korean foreign minister visits the U.S., she will be meeting with Trump’s daughter Ivanka.
Trump has derailed this fragile process at one of its most critical moments. Does he care at all?
From alienating our allies to cozying up to dictators to saving Chinese jobs in exchange for investment in the Trump Organization, Donald Trump is looking out only for Trump in his foreign policy.
