What you need to know about the Trump-Kim agreement

After months of acrimony and a few weeks of weird uncertainty, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a denuclearization agreement on Tuesday that essentially did nothing more but affirm the April 27 Panmunjom Declaration signed by North and South Korea in April.

As with the Panmunjom Declaration, there’s nothing in the agreement — a joint letter, really — that actually defines any of the goals or how they will be achieved, just a commitment, on both sides, to “to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”

There was no mention of sanctions, long-range missiles, a peace treaty, or a time frame in what the president called a “pretty comprehensive” agreement that is less than one and a half pages long.

In other words, Trump is stealing the credit of work done previously  by South Korea.
