USA may find itself sidelined in vital nuclear negotiations
DONALD TRUMP may well have locked himself and America out of the Korea negotiations by claiming he wouldn’t meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The two Koreas, with assistance from China and Japan, could provide for the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula without US participation.
Throughout this whole saga, Trump has shown himself to be childlike.
First came his playground name calling, then his boasts of being bigger than Kim.
He then went and topped it off with a letter to the North Korean despot, calling off agreed peace talks, that could have been better written by his own 12-year-old son.
All-in-all it has revealed his incredible misunderstanding of human nature as he now scrambles to salvage the June 12 meeting in Singapore which he called off.
Most adults, even most children, understand how they need to treat a person with whom they want to have a serious conversation.
There must be a degree of respect from the beginning of their interaction. Trump has failed to show that. Now his unpredictable, ‘me-only’ foreign policy may yet prove a huge embarrassment to the States if those Asian leaders take this as an invitation to avoid working with America and forge a peaceful solution alone.
Kim Jong-un could well agree an arms deal without US involvement
