Trump in Korea


Can Trump Achieve Peace With North Korea? from Rising Up With Sonali on Vimeo.

GUEST: Hyun Lee. U.S. National Organizer of the group Women Cross DMZ.

BACKGROUND: President Donald Trump made history on Sunday when he became the first sitting US president to step into North Korea, accepting an invitation by leader Kim Jong Un. Meeting Mr. Kim in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), he stayed on North Korean territory for only about a minute before returning to the South Korean side.

After what had appeared last year to be major progress in US-North Korean relations, ties between the two nations soured. But Trump and Kim, who claim to have a personal affinity for one another, seem ready to revive a detente.

It is not yet clear what the terms of the detente will be. Some are speculating that rather than requiring North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons technology, the Trump administration may only require a nuclear freeze.
