Ian Bremmer: This Is a ‘Big Win’ for Trump To Get N. Korea to This Point

‘The Trump Administration were able to push the North Koreans to this point, both carrots and sticks’

RUSH EXCERPT:

BREMMER: "First of all, big win that the United States and the Trump Administration were able to push the North Koreans to this point, both carrots and sticks. Offering a summit, not talking about human rights, also saying you don’t get this right we’ll squeeze you really hard, maybe military strikes. That’s all possible. But you can’t talk about pre-emption military strikes if they’re taking about making peace. If Trump wants to have a meeting with Kim Jong-un and declare this a great breakthrough and a historic win, he can do that but the idea he can force denuclearization right now, he's lost a significant piece of his leverage."
