Trump is using “Master Persuader” tactics on Kim. He already has the Chinese saying “If North Korea attacks America or its Allies, China will stay neutral.” That pulled the rug out from under Kim, who always thought the Chinese would protect him no matter what. Now, maybe he will negotiate.

Trump has achieved what everyone said was impossible: a concession from China. The world just got a little safer.
