During a trip to South Korea, President Trump attempted to quell fears about North Korea.
“I think we’re going to have lots of good answers for you over a period of time, and ultimately it will all work out,” Trump said confidently.
“It always works out. It has to work out!’
Trump is planning to be in South Korea for less than a day. It’s a long enough time, however, to do what he needs to do. North Korea’s aggressions have been deepening rather than lessening. It’s critical that Trump protects America’s relationships in the region.
“South Korea hosts more than 28,000 U.S. military troops and counts on the United States to insulate it from potential North Korean attacks. And America needs open economic exchange lanes with the nation, which is its sixth-largest trade partner – but Trump wants it on his terms,” the Daily Mail writes.
Trump is less focused on the problems related to trade than those associated with North Korea. If Kim Jong Un fires a missile at Seoul, countless people would be killed. There are a whopping 28,000 American troops stationed in South Korea. Seoul, the country’s capital, is home to 25 million people.
Trump’s optimism may seem odd given the circumstance, but the president is a master negotiator. He can work out deals that no one else could. He recently admitted that he would be willing to sit down with dictator Kim Jong Un and have a face-to-face conversation.
“I don’t think it’s strength or weakness, I think sitting down with people is not a bad thing… So I would certainly be open to doing that, but we’ll see where it goes. I think we’re far too early,” Trump said.
