Is This a New Era of American Diplomacy?

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Wednesday June 13 2018

Is the master of the deal really the master, or will he be heading for Stormy waters?

Leaders the world over spoke of the powerful significance of President Trump's summit with Kim Jong Un this week.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in called the meeting "historic," adding that "we will never go back to the past again."

According to the New York Post, people broke into cheers and applause at a train station in Seoul as President Trump shook Chairman Kim's hand on TV.

In the U.S. officials look forward to a new chapter.

"For decades, American policy toward North Korea has failed, and I commend @POTUS for not accepting the status quo," Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) tweeted.

"This an historic opportunity to end the Korean War [and] get North Korea to give up their weapons and missiles," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said.

Security expert Christian Whiton explains what the President's critics miss about the summit.

In the past, U.S. administrations gave away too much upfront.

"This time, President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have insisted that North Korea undertake actual disarmament before real financial concessions or even sanctions relief," Whiton writes.
