Today, President Donald Trump will board a plane and make his way to Hanoi, Vietnam for his second summit with North Korean Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un. After creating a dialogue with the Communist leader last June, expectations are certainly high. Many people around the world, and in Washington DC, are hoping for the isolated Asian country to give up it's arsenal of nuclear weapons,
Earlier this morning, President Trump himself took to Twitter to say that the denuclearization of North Korea is of the utmost importance.
Realistically, the idea that Kim Jong-un will give up his country's entire nuclear arsenal is far-fetched. The North Korean government believes their nuclear weapons are the only thing that gives them legitimacy on world stage.
That being said, if The President can pull off the imaginable, the folks in Oslo should take notice.
If President Trump were to win the Nobel Peace Prize, he would join a very short list of men who have won the award while President. Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama also won the award.
However, if President Trump can pull off the impossible in Hanoi, the Nobel Prize, although prestigious, would temporarily be a secondary story. If President Trump somehow gets the Kim Jung-un to play ball with the rest of the world, it would be the first time in almost a half centruy that the rest of the world doesn't have to worry about a nuclear threat from North Korea.
