Trump vs. Kim – The Ultimate Standoff

trump vs kim

Is North Korea truly no longer a nuclear threat? This is the question that has plagued everyone’s minds since Trump met with the North Korean dictator earlier this summer. He tweeted, “Just landed- a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!”

Trump faced a lot of questions when he returned, with one of the main concerns being that he gave away too much in return for too little. Trump gave a new legitimacy to Kim’s rule, and agreed to end war games with Seoul that the allies thought of as crucial to their safety.

This is a major shift from the threats that the two leaders had been throwing at each other months before. Tokyo and Seoul have both expressed concern about halting U.S. military exercises with South Korea, because the U.S. has always had a major military presence there. The Pentagon was also caught off guard with Trump’s decision, and some South Koreans were alarmed.

Lee Jae Sung, from Incheon said, “The United States is our ally, so the joint military drills are still necessary to maintain our relationship with the U.S. I think they will be continued for a while.”

The main issue that the world has been awaiting news on was North Korea’s pursuit of a nuclear arsenal meant to target the U.S. mainland. Trump and Kim both signed a statement that is a repeat of past promises that vows to work towards a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.

Trump claims that North Korea no longer is a nuclear threat, but many are still skeptical. The confusion over the summit has been resolved, according to the Trump administration, and the ending of the North’s nuclear program remains hopeful.
