Donald Trump has presented North Korea with the kind of gifts that, not long ago, the rogue dictatorship could only dream of. For example, Kim Jong-un received a long-sought summit with an American president, elevating his country’s legitimacy and stature, in exchange for basically nothing.

Trump then lavished public praise on the brutal dictator in exchange for nothing; he announced a cessation of U.S. and South Korean joint military exercises in exchange for nothing; followed by the Republican raising the prospect of easing economic sanctions against the United States’ longtime adversary.
