A Summit Lost in Vapor
In the Week in the June 25 issue, writing about the approaching Trump–Kim summit, you predicted: “The North will use some sort of promise of denuclearization to relax the international pressure against it. Even if Trump doesn’t want to ease up, it will be hard to resist South Korean entreaties to loosen the sanctions regime based on positive atmospherics around the historic meeting. And the Chinese will exploit any cracks in the sanctions.”
Check, check, and check. I would call National Review clairvoyant, except that this was about as difficult as predicting that the Democrats will overreact to every immigration reform.
