FEATURING TIM SHORROCK – In what may be perhaps the only bright spot in the Trump Administration’s foreign policy, a summit location for the Presidents of the US and North Korea has been finalized. Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will meet in Singapore on June 12th at a meeting that, if it actually transpires, is sure to be historic. Ahead of the meeting, several American detainees were released by North Korea.
Strangely media pundits in the US have declared the Trump-Kim meeting to be a dangerous step rather than a win for diplomacy.
