One of the most notable events in modern history was shown in this video of North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un crossing his heavily armed border to make amends with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
This collaboration comes as a surprise to most, as nearly all voices in the media have said Trump's erratic or impulsive behavior would lead to us world war three.
North Korea is denuclearizing, and the two countries are now cooperating.
So, where’s the war? Where’s the barbaric overuse of military posturing? Wasn’t Trump supposed to fail… proving once and for all that peace through strength is a failed concept?
The question now turns to this - Is this act of peace a byproduct of Trump's foreign policy?
On February 23, 2018, Trump implemented sanctions intending to close a loophole to cut off North Korea’s exports of coal and imports of oil. A signal was sent. A signal followed by tweets that set a tone. Trump's team simply wasn’t going to take anymore crap from Kim Jong-un.
Compared to the apologetic pragmatist style of Obama and John Kerry, it seems that Trump's big red-button theory has provoked change. The most prominent impact we see in North Korea is Trump's attitude surrounding foreign affairs.
There is no doubt that this looks great on Trump's checklist of achievements, even if Trump's policy or attitude ended the division between the countries. Along with the extinction of ISIS reign in the middle east, Trump's track record with the decline of foreign evils is notable and significant.
