North Korea: Trump tries to undermine peace with sanctions

FILE - In this June 30, 2019 file photo, President Donald Trump meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the border village of Panmunjom in Demilitarized Zone, South Korea. South Korea's military say it has detected an "unidentified object" flying near the border with North Korea. The South's Joint Chiefs of Staff says its radar found "the traces of flight by an unidentified object" on Monday, July 1, over the central portion of the Demilitarized Zone that bisects the two Koreas.

Regarding “Trump becomes first sitting president to step into North Korea, says nuke talks to resume” (July 1): Perhaps the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was not quite as spontaneous as the president would like us to believe. There was enough time to find benign black business suits for the North Korean guards, which enabled them to get rid of their usual military garb, guns and binoculars. It was indeed a spectacle for the history books.
