"Trump Grappling With Risks of Proceeding With North Korea Meeting" By Andrew Honig

The article I read for today continues the talk about President Trump's meeting with Kim that is taking place in the near future. Trump is extremely skeptical about this meeting and it becoming very anxious. Trump believes that Kim is slowly going back on his word and Trump is becoming impatient. In the wake of the meeting that South Korea's president had with Kim, president Trump called president Moon a few days ago before there meeting that is suppose to occur on Tuesday. He is growing impatient and this is exemplified by the phone call he made to Moon. President Trump's decision to pull out of the 2015 Iran deal just puts more pressure on himself with North Korea. Trump's new national security advisor Bolton is in daily contact with Moon trying to devise up a strategy to help the impending situation. Bolton is clear on the proposal that Trump should use the Singapore meeting to make North Korea give up their nuclear weapons. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo also acknowledges that they are keeping a close eye on the situation.
