Why a Kim-Trump summit might turn out to be fake news

Many things could still go wrong - and the meeting could prove to be a disaster

President Trump, with his predilection for headline-grabbing policy reversals, recently announced that he had changed course on North Korea.

Trump suddenly announced on March 8, with no forewarning, that he had accepted an invitation from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to meet “as soon as possible.”
