The threat of conflict is no property negotiation, but the president is deporting it with all his sciences as a dealer, praying the eventual shake of the hand
So Kim Jong-un is just a 27 -year-old millennial for whom it must have been very hard to lead his country at such an age. His ally, Chinas president Xi Jinping, is a very good man who I got to know really well and adores his country. He is trying hard to resolve the very difficult Korean crisis. Of direction Xi doesnt wishing to strife and extinction and would like to do something to resolve events. But perhaps its possible he cant. So muses Donald Trump at the end of opening dictations of his North Korean crisis.
The character of Americas much-vaunted New York property dealer style of diplomacy is starting to emerge. Initially Trump on North koreans had the alarming hallmark of a husband hopeles to divert attention from a first 100 periods of one car disintegrate after the other. Trump has had to back off from his intention to kill the Mexico-Canada trade agreement. His first orders on migration, refugees, health care, Mexican walls and now possibly charge slice have blown up in his face.
In such circumstances, successive American chairwomen have searched out a small, poverty-stricken, usually Muslim country to call a hideous threat and then destruction with appall and awe. Kim poses no imaginable existential threat to America, or even its Asian allies , nothing remotely comparable to what America could instantaneously unleash on North Korea.
But a crisis is a crisis. Henry Kissinger formerly said he favor negotiating with people who were traders. He would not have touched Thatcher versus Galtieri over the Falklands as they were natural intransigents. The dealer offers high and watches his opposings action, the psychology behind each move. He knows when to be relentless and when to give ground and compromise, even hanging in there. But he prays the eventual shake of the hand.
