Today, in an interview with Reuters, Donald Trump said he would be willing to sit down and “speak to” North Korea’s murderous tyrannical dictator Kim Jong Un.
To say that this would be a major shift in U.S. policy toward the isolated nation is an understatement.
Trump, as usual, declined to share details of his plans to deal with North Korea, but did say he was open to a face-to-face meeting with its leader…
“I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him,”
North Korea is among the most isolated countries in the world and regularly defies the international community by launching test rockets and capturing political prisoners.
Trump’s willingness to negotiate with a pariah state comes on the heels of his offering olive branches to countries such as Russia, while criticizing leaders of traditional allies such as Mexico and Britain.
And so it goes.
