Trump initiated in peace making with North & South Korea where those who came before him failed.
Two Korea's, connected. Historic.
Thank you @realDonaldTrump
How did Trump do this? Very simple: He showed Kim Jung un respect by taking him seriously and as an equal. He took his threats seriously by threatening back. He signaled a willingness to trust if shown trust. It's impossible to deal with people who dislike and distrust you.
Trump was mocked, ridiculed and second guessed at every single step of this process by his supposed intellectual betters among the foreign policy establishment.
And we are seeing a second round of this with the DC foreign policy establishment's take on Syria.
