Spin in overdrive: trying to credit Trump with Kim Jong Un’s initiative

Let us get the facts straight: the meeting just held between Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in – with each leader setting foot on the ground of the other’s country – was the result of Kim Jong Un’s new year address, on which I commented earlier. Moon Jae-in, from South Korea, responded. After a series of interactions, the two have met, shaken hands and expressed a sincere desire to resolve the Korean issue once and for all – between the two of them.

But what do you expect? A concerted effort to credit – of all people – Donald Trump with developments. The man who is a symbol of US decline somehow – and desperately – seems to claim credit for a development in which he is a mere bystander. Hardly. Instead, Kim Jong Un is the real ‘statesman‘.
