The North Korea dilemma has been building for decades. Political psychologist Bart Rossi discusses the possibility of President Trump having a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
For decades the North Korean leadership has defied the world in the quest to obtain nuclear weapons. In recent months they have seemingly softened their position about giving up their nuclear weapons.
With sanctions crippling the country over decades, and China exerting some pressure this past year, North Korea made historic moves as they met with South Korea for a peace summit.
South Korean president Moon Jae-in then brokered dialogue between the Trump administration and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Slated for June 12th in Singapore, the world was shocked and delighted when the meeting was announced. Since then, however, the road curved once again. The North was vocally critical of the South and the U.S. running a joint military exercise, hinting that it may not attend the talks. When SoS Mike Pompeo arrived with negotiators to prepare for the June summit, the North’s team didn’t show.
President Trump then — in a letter to Kim Jon Un — canceled the meeting, but left the invite open to moving forward.
Dr. Bart ROssi, PhD, a political psychologist in this segment on WINK News discusses the potential thoughts and planning of the two leaders.
