Experts say that Mr Trump’s strategy dealing with the rogue regime — a combination of tweeted warnings and mockery, tough sanctions and pressure on China and others to toe the line — is bearing fruit.
Evidence came this week, when Kim told a delegation from South Korea his regime is willing to discuss nuclear disarmament with the United States.
North Korea has reportedly committed to stop nuclear and missile testing, a longstanding US demand.
“While I wouldn’t say that Trump has the Kim regime crying ‘uncle,’ I would say, to use a sports analogy, that North Korea is now like a running back looking for space to move in the backfield,” Nicholas Eberstadt, a political economist at the American Enterprise Institute, told Fox News.
Mr Trump has ridiculed Kim by calling him “Little Rocket Man,” warned that his “nuclear button is bigger” and announced that the dictator’s beliigerance “will be met with fire and fury the likes of which the world has never seen”.
Military solutions are now fully in place,locked and loaded,should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2017
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!— Donald J.
