World War 3: Trump is a Genius Diplomat
Any doubts over Donald Trump’s ability as a statesmen have now been dealt with, in North Korea he has proven himself to be the master of the deal.
At the same time as being very aggressive on the military front trump has praised North Korea’s Kim Jung-un, even offering up the idea of a meeting.
With this “balls to the wall” diplomacy Trump will solve a problem that has plagued the world for decades.
Trump is taking it to the North Korean’s offering both the threat of a strike and the olive branch of respect that Kim Jung-un desperately craves.
Trump has his attention
The US activities in the vicinity of the Korean Peninsula – namely, US strategic bomber joint flights with South Korean and Japanese forces – may see the two Koreas end up in a nuclear war, the North Korean state agency KCNA has said.
According to Pyongyang, the US forces are carrying out “a nuclear bomb dropping drill against major objects” in its territory at the moment when US President Donald Trump as well as “other US warmongers are crying out for making a pre-emptive nuclear strike” against the North.
“The reckless military provocation is pushing the situation on the Korean Peninsula closer to the brink of nuclear war,” KCNA wrote, as cited by Reuters.
The flight of the two supersonic B-1B bombers occurred on Monday, on the same day as Trump said he would be ready to meet with Kim Jong-un.
“If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Trump told Bloomberg News.
However, the White House was more reluctant to see the meeting in any near future, with spokesman Sean Spicer saying, “Clearly conditions are not there right now. I don’t see this happening anytime soon.”
Tensions have been escalating over the past weeks, with Trump saying on Thursday that “a major, major conflict” with North Korea was possible, and China warning that the situation on the peninsula could spiral out of control.
But Trump has given Kim Jung-un an escape route
U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said he was open to meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong un “under the right circumstances,” according to Bloomberg News.
“If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Trump told Bloomberg in an interview, adding, “under the right circumstances I would meet with him.”
“I can tell you this: He was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father, when his father died. He’s dealing with obviously very tough people – in particular the generals and others – and at a very young age he was able to assume power.
“A lot of people I’m sure tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else, and he was able to do it.
“So obviously he’s a pretty smart cookie.”
