Former NBA player, Dennis Rodman, became friends with Kim Jong Un five years ago while visiting North Korea. Rodman has been discussing peace with him ever since then and attempted to interest Obama in following that unofficial path, but was repeatedly brushed off. Rodman says he received death threats and had to hide out because he tried to broker peace between the two countries.
President Trump gave a press conference to announce a signed agreement with Kim Jong Un that requires the complete denuclearization of North Korea, with sanctions remaining in place until Kim meets his commitment. Trump said also that U.S. war games will end and that his ultimate goal is to bring the 32,000 troops stationed in the area back home. [The agreement that was revealed to the public is a statement of intent. Details now must be worked out. We may be sure that those details will involve US funding.]
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un announced he will halt nuclear and missile tests in his country and will shut down a nuclear test site as a show of good faith. It is unknown if the tests will conclude permanently. Kim Jong-un will meet with the leader of South Korea to officially end the Korean war. They will discuss the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and US presence on the site.
