    President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un struck a historic deal to work toward “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula. The trouble is they don’t have a shared vision of what “complete denuclearization” looks like.

    And while handshakes were exchanged and agreements were signed after unprecedented talks in Singapore, no country with a nuclear program as advanced as North Korea's has ever denuclearized.

    What does the left really want ? When he threatens to isolate them they call him out when he tries to normalize relations they call him out . When Obama made the Iran deal they were gloating but now they are suddenly scared about North Korea getting legitimacy. The left can do some really great mental gymnastics I'm telling you

    Fun fact! South Africa is the only country in history to give up their own nuclear weapons. I'd love to see a Vox video on that, as there are some parallels with North Korea.

    현실 세계 Because the u.s is a global super power and when you take away this huge leverage other nations like north Korea, China, or Russia could use it against us.

    Vox 2017: Trump is being too harsh on North Korea, he’s gonna start a war!Vox 2018: Trump is being too weak, he shouldn’t try to make a deal!

  • Excelsior !

     (Jun 23, 2018)

    i dont think harsh is the word to explain what he did to kim, it was more of teasing which wouldnt really matter unless you are a cold blooded killer dictator with nukes and a passionate hate for the US

    Where in the video does it say "he shouldn’t try to make a deal!"!!?....Vox is simply pointing out that the term "denuclearization" means differently to America and North Korea and Trump shouldn't fall for the North Korean trick to get US troops out of South Korea, so that Chinese military becomes the dominating force in the region (furthering their South China Sea claim) and Kim is free to do a Tet offensive on South Korea (once US is out of the way), thereby becoming the one leade...
