Kim knows that any use of nukes will result in his country being turned into a landfill.  There will be no "boom".

I will say the goodwill effort has been made by the USA.

It wouldn't be smart for NK to do anything but go along.  

China has been holding them back

China obviously doesn't like the idea of an economically and militarily strong, western-leaning, unified Korea on its border.  Of course, that's what Trump wants, in order to check the threat of Chinese expansionism.  This is not just about making little Kimmy play nice.  China is staking claim to the oil and gas-rich South China Sea, even building "islands" (puny sand bars) so that they can claim it and the territorial waters around it.   The navy's been exercising their right to navigate through international waters.  So having their southern neighbor warm up to the West is going to add to the pressure to behave.   

I'd love to play Trump in a game of chess.   I bet he's good.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

LOL, are you serious?   This offends the Left?   They are desperate to find something to complain about, aren't they?

I have read and heard criticisms of it. I thought it was excellent

How could Trump do this?
He didn't need to fly billions on pallets like Obama did for Iran?

Here is an interesting perspective..

"Consider that Chairman Kim was/is likely put into power not as a linear out-coming of his familial relationship, but more as a strategy of ongoing Chinese duplicity. Kim Jong-un was seen as easier to control.  Consider the possibility that all of the DPRK officials who carry out the objectives of the ruling North Korean government are factually operating according to the dictates of the hidden Chinese authority.

Within this dynamic Chairman Kim received the scorn of the international community; but was -in reality- merely a figurehead, a false panda face – hiding the true authority behind all of the DPRK policy, and a designed strategy constructed by China.

Consider that by confronting the economic interests of China, President Trump fractured the decades-long ruse, and is now positioned to expose the nature of the Chinese ruling authority within North Korea.   This becomes a stunning paradigm shift; a reality that few could possibly fathom, unless you consider the cunning of Beijing.

Under this scenario, it is adverse to the interest of China for a united, open and democratic Korean peninsula where the North and South are together again.  It would be particularly adverse to Xi’s interests if the U.S., Japan and a united Korea formed any substantive  international alliance.

The best play for China would be to control the outcomes of any unification and position China as the control agent for any united Korea.  This would be critically important if, as I am now increasingly confident, North Korea was/is actually a proxy province of China and has been for decades under the complete -albeit hidden- rule of the Chinese authority.

Under this scenario, Chairman Xi has to play a very careful game of geopolitical cunning; and if at any moment he sees Chairman Kim accepting the rescue of President Trump, Xi will likely move to eliminate Kim and defend his interests quickly.

Imagine the internal stress upon the young Kim Jong-un who has been forced to ride this dragon for almost a decade, and knows his government is not actually his government but rather a governing body with all officials reporting to Beijing."

Democrats a year ago: "Trump is Hitler!"
Democrats today: "Trump is Neville Chamberlain!"

My favorite part has been all the commentators seamlessly pivoting from “Trump’s unhinged tweets will provoke World War III!” to “It’s a disgrace that Trump is speaking so diplomatically about a dictator like Kim!”
