So what say you? Had the same talks originated with Obama, the left would be cheering him, and the right condemning him… Part of that is context, part of that is trust (and who we trust), and probably, if we are honest, the largest part of that is partisan team politics and blind support of your side/team… It seems that Trump gave up something tangible (the right to prepare with South Korea for the collapse of or attack from North Korea) for something thus far intangible from North Korea. I (admittedly) most likely would have been immediately and openly critical of Obama or Clinton for doing the same. On the flip side, Trump has achieved what has been hoped for and attempted for some considerable time. We are now having talks with, and the possibility of a mutually beneficial relationship, as well as the possibility of the end of conflict with North Korea… Nothing to scoff at.
