Donald Trump Signals Openness to North Korea Diplomacy in Interview

  • US nuclear bombers deploy to North Korea's doorstep in 'warning to Kim Jong-un'

That's not only because there are other stakeholders, but also because Pyongyang still refuses to relinquish its pursuit of nuclear weapons - grounds for war, according to the United States, which has been placed in the firing line. They noted that the geographical features of the Korean Peninsula provide no opportunity for the gradual, methodical buildup of troops to create a superior strike force-as was the case before the U.S. attacked Iraq-and that North Korea would immediately notice such actions and naturally regard them as a casus belli. The US has not officially engaged in direct talks with North Korea since the Six-Party Talks of the Bush administration.

Nikki Haley made clear that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would first need to stop weapons testing for a "significant amount of time".

Despite the slight easing of tensions with North Korea in recent days, plenty of Americans still appear concerned about the potential for nuclear war: By midday on Wednesday, Jones said he'd already received over 200 individual orders--more than 10 times the typical daily average for his website selling nuclear attack-related products.

Asked if he had spoken with Mr Kim, the President said cryptically: "I don't want to comment on it. How responsible people around him, or supporting him, can dismiss this or laugh it off is beyond me".

Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened Pyongyang over the past 12 months in what has played out as escalating game of verbal jibes between himself and Kim Jong-un regime.




However, Donald Trump's ill-considered riposte on Twitter-'I too have a nuclear button, but it is a much bigger and more powerful one than his, and my button works'-only heightened global concerns over his mindset on using nuclear weapons. Perhaps they thought this was the only way to make the idea palatable to Trump.

Still, Washington will be unhappy if South Korea can be persuaded to resume closer economic ties with the North, for example by reopening several cross-border economic zones.

"That's good for the United States that they can at least start getting back into talks", she said. More recently Trump said in a Twitter post that his "nuclear button" is "bigger and more powerful".

"I always believe in talking", Trump said Saturday. The US responded to North Korean actions by flexing its muscles and conducting a number of military drills in the region with its allies South Korea and Japan.

On Tuesday, North Korea and South Korea are expected to hold their first official talks in two years, ahead of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in February. According to its supporters, it boosts GDP in all affected countries, and it's conceivable that a better deal would have larger growth effects in the United States, which the U.S. could then tax to pay for the wall.
