Daniel Hoffman: North Korea’s Economy Is in ‘Free Fall’ After Trump’s Maximum Pressure Campaign

‘I think the president has realistic expectations on trying to fix what hasn’t worked for decades’

EXCERPT:

HOFFMAN: "First of all, I think the president has very realistic expectations on trying to fix what hasn’t worked for decades. North Korea is the most isolated population on the planet and deny their population every human right. And so I think that presents separate challenges for us, where the president has changed tact. Two points, really important. First of all, he brought maximum economic pressure unprecedented against North Korea, that has really caused the Kim regime to examine their own frailty, economic frailty. Their economy is in free fall."
