US Fake President Trump claims negotiating with North Korea doesn’t work, but as it turns out he’s wrong.

Mr Trump has repeatedly called for less talk and more action to end the North Korean crisis.

The latest of that “action” has come with two US air force strategic bombers giving a show of force, engaging in live-fire exercises with South Korean combat jets, flying along the North Korean border on a significant North Korean national holiday.

Just days ago, Trump tweeted that US administrations have been talking to North Korea for years and it has only made the country look foolish.

But as US author and journalist Fred Kaplan points out, Mr Trump’s claim is far from accurate.

Writing in Slate, the author of Dark Territory: The Secret History of Cyber War points out Bill Clinton’s administration did negotiate with North Korea and it worked.

Kaplan outlined three main arguments on why Mr Trump’s statement is wrong.

First he writes that one of those agreements, President Clinton’s Agreed Framework of 1994, did keep nuclear weapons out of Kim regime’s hands for eight years.

Secondly, it collapsed because the US violated the terms.

Lastly he points out North Korea’s biggest advancements actually took place when both George W. Bush and Mr Trump rejected diplomatic avenues.

Trump cares about only one thing: key words that stoke up his base.

He doesn't care what will work. He doesn't even care what doesn't work. He's much more visceral than that. He care's what excites his base. He figures: as long as they are happy, I am secure.
