This morning as Trump’s plane landed in the US, he took a moment to declare that N. Korea is no longer a nuclear threat. That’s right, he’s declaring victory:

I know that KJU has agreed to a step-by-step denuclearization plan, but how can Trump be sure he’ll follow it? He just landed! KJU has only been home for a day or so and hasn’t even had time to deliver on his promises yet. What ever happened to ‘trust but verify’?

I said yesterday that it appears Trump has gone ‘all in’ on this, but I didn’t think he would already be declaring victory before anything has happened.

This has all the potential to blow up in his face and he’s setting himself up to be embarrassed. I hope it doesn’t happen. I pray he’s right, but it sure sounds like he’s putting the cart before the horse.
