The so-called “excellent relationship” between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has failed to yield the desired results so far.
We all know how much President Donald Trump loves photo ops with strongmen. The latest was his high drama pose with Kim Jong Un, on the north side of the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, last week. Announced by tweet, improvised at the last minute, this move was another instance
