President Trump’s first year in office has been showcased with a number of great wins.
To most, his biggest accomplishment was the historic tax cuts passed last year.
But that’s nothing compared to his biggest win of 2018.
The day President Trump took office he inherited one of the biggest challenges in the world’s history.
As the leader of the world’s biggest superpower, the problems in North Korea rested on his shoulders.
And with that new responsibility came a lot of criticism.
But President Trump refused to play nice with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un, and he made it clear that America is ready and willing to protect themselves if need be.
The left lost their mind at his reaction and demanded the President play nice with Kim Jong Un.
But with time, President Trump’s strategy appears to be working.
For the first time since 2000, a major United States official has met with Kim Jong Un, and South Korea has had their first summit with their Northern counterpart since Un took power.
The results of these meetings have become clear; North Korea is looking to be accommodating.
But they don’t seem very interested in making deals, but instead, want to give President Trump everything he wants without any strings attached.
In the past, Kim Jong Un was demanding the United States withdraw troops from South Korea before any sort of deal could be put in the works.
But now, North Korea is considering denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula without forcing Trump to remove his troops.
All of this could be decided at a historic meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un in the next few months.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has agreed to the “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula without unacceptable preconditions, such as the removal of U.S. troops, the South Korean president said Thursday.
“The North Koreans did not present any conditions that the United States could not accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops in South Korea,” South Korean President Moon Jae-in explained to reporters Thursday in Seoul, adding, “They only talk about an end to hostilities against their country and about getting security guarantees. It’s safe to say that the plans for dialogue between the North and the United States could proceed because that has been made clear.” This assurance, yet to be confirmed by North Korea, could remove a key obstacle in negotiations.
North Korea has repeatedly demanded the withdrawal of U.S. troops, yet the Kim regime has also said on occasion that it could accept the U.S. military presence in Korea if a peace treaty was signed and relations between Washington and Pyongyang were normalized. Kim Jong Il, father of the current North Korean dictator, said that the preservation of the American military presence in Korea was “not a bad idea,” noting the U.S. should continue to contribute to “stability in Northeast Asia,” The New York Times reported.
The U.S. has around 28,000 troops stationed in South Korea. However, troop numbers fluctuate. The U.S. regularly deploys strategic assets to the peninsula for joint drills and combat exercises.
Moon’s remarks come ahead of the third inter-Korean summit and the first since Kim Jong Un took power. The April 27 meeting between the two Korean leaders is expected to be followed by an unprecedented meeting between President Donald Trump and Kim in either May or June.”
President Trump is doing something that no other President could do; reason with North Korea.
If President Trump is able to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula and bring an end to the Korean War, he will likely go down as the best diplomat that the United States has ever had.
Do you think that President Trump is doing a good job in his dealings with North Korea?
