Before the Singapore summit, I predicted that Kim Jong-un would walk out of the negotiations. I wrote that he would walk not because he did not want a deal, but because he wanted a better deal than Trump was offering. In other words, he was testing Trump to see how far he could push him. You would think he would already know the answer is “not very far.”
But, unlike the media circus clown pundits, I can admit when I was wrong. However, I was only wrong on the timing of the test. The real test began when Mike Pompeo came back from North Korea with nothing. And right after his feet hit the ground the North Korea State media put out a statement roughly to the effect that “things are going south.” In addition, at the same time they said North Korea might not be as committed to de-nuclearization as the world thought after the Singapore summit.
