President Donald Trump is brimming with enthusiasm about his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi. The cheese stands alone.
According to a Friday Politico report, most of Trump’s administration decidedly do not want the summit to take place and feel confident that Trump will trade concessions for false promises on denuclearization just so he has a “win” to tout on the global stage.
Trump reportedly was the primary pusher behind the summit. Many in his administration have felt so differently as to publicly undercut the President’s own position of baffling optimism and trust in North Korea’s word.
