Trump met with Kim Jong Un and even visited the DPRK. Whatever Trump’s intentions were, it was clear some elements within his administration and the US government apparatus did not approve. On the 22nd of February 2019, an attack against North Korea’s Embassy was staged by CIA-linked forces in Spain. John Bolton made a number of statements that seemed to be undermining negotiations.

However, the results of North Korea being secure enough to give up its nuclear weapons and have a “reform and opening up” moment amid the lifting of sanctions could be tremendous for the global economy. The people of North Korea are multilingual, educated, and are skilled in technology and engineering. Korea’s mountains are full of coal and important minerals.
