Let’s get one thing straight when it comes to the flare-up with North Korea: It has very little to do with Donald Trump. This scenario would be happening if Hillary Clinton was president or a different Republican.
It could have happened under President Barack Obama’s watch. In fact, Kim Jong-Un surely wishes it had. Not because he wanted a showdown with Obama, but because he’s always wanted the nuclear program to move along as speedily as possible. The sooner, the better.
