U.S.-North Korea diplomacy: how to move beyond missed opportunities
The rhetorical gap between Trump and his advisors has stymied talks for months — that needs to change
If President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed is the ultimate barometer of his agenda, North Korea was hardly on his mind on the one-year anniversary last week of his first summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
In fact, Trump didn’t tweet about North Korea at all that day. What was on his mind? The “Phony Witch Hunt” he claims Democrats are engaged in, his grievances against the “Fake (Corrupt) News Media,” and domestic politics – along with a pro forma tweet acknowledging his meeting with Poland’s president that day.
