But it appears that Kim sized up Trump as an inexperienced and uninformed buffoon who would allow him to carry on his nuclear program and simply tell the public that it wasn’t happening rather than admit that his “deal” was a sham. (He didn’t actually have to meet him to know that: After all Trump is one of the only people in history who went bankrupt running casinos.) And that is exactly what’s happening.
I mentioned last week that satellite analysis showed that North Koreans were building up their nuclear research facility. But that’s not all. The Wall Street journal reported this on Sunday:
North Korea is completing a major expansion of a key missile-manufacturing plant, said researchers who have examined new satellite imagery of the site, the latest sign Pyongyang is pushing ahead with weapons programs even as the US pressures it to abandon them.
