Experts worry Trump will blow Kim Jong Un meeting

President Trump will visit “Little Rocket Man” but many worry his efforts to end the North Korean crisis may fail to launch anything meaningful. The administration earned praise in some circles after the South Korea said Trump was ready to meet with Pyongyang’s Kim Jong Un by May, offering hope that a relationship best known for threats of mass destruction may reach a diplomatic breakthrough. A statement from the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, which received the Nobel Prize after slamming the nuclear-laced threats between Trump and Kim, praised them for “achieving history dialogue between the US and North Korea, which is the only pathway to nuclear disarmament in the face of fire and fury.”
But others were less hopeful that the leaders meeting each other in real life, rather than behind their computer screens, would lead to any lasting change to the weapons programs that have made North Korea an international pariah. Trump, Kim Jong Un won’t be enough for successful peace talks South Korean officials who brokered the meeting said that Kim had “committed to denuclearization,” though others raised the possibility that the meeting would just be a PR coup for Pyongyang. “There is no way that President Trump can be ready by May to have a high-stakes negotiation on denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula. It’s just impossible,” said Samantha Vinograd, a former official at the Obama administration’s National Security Council.
She told CNN that Kim was “playing to the President’s ego and the president?s weaknesses by flattering him.” Analysts noted that the Kim dynasty has long been looking for a summit with the American president as a symbol of equality with another nuclear power. Trump agrees to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un “Summits normally come at the end of a long series of negotiations at lower levels in which lots of devils in the details r hammered out. Trump, always the publicity-seeker, is just diving right in,” Robert Kelly, a professor at Pusan National University in South Korea and North Korea expert, said on Twitter. He noted that Bill Clinton came close to visiting North Korea only after five years of negotiations, a process the memory of which now reminds the world of how the situation on the peninsula has festered for decades.
“I’m sorry, do we not remember how awful that photo of [then Secretary of State Madeleine] Albright toasting Kim Jong Il was?” said U.S. Naval War College professor Tom Nichols, who added that she was heavily criticized for it. “This trap is so obvious even Wile E. Coyote wouldn?t walk into it,” he added. Even sometime supporters of the President were wary about what would actually come of the meeting. “I understand if the past is an indication of the future, North Korea will be all talk and no action,? Sen. Lindsey Graham said, though he added that he thinks the Kim regime believes Trump’s military threats.
The Republican from South Carolina made his own threat, however, and said, “The worst possible thing you can do is meet with President Trump in person and try to play him.” “If you do that, it will be the end of you ? and your regime.”
