It's looking increasingly possible President Donald Trump might walk us into a war with North Korea by accident. So what if we put someone with more experience in charge—like Dennis Rodman. Rodman's been to North Korea several times and has struck up a strong friendship with Kim Jong Un. Trump promised North Korea would "be met with fire and fury." Who do you trust more to deal with North Korea?

Dennis Rodman is the only American who has met Kim Jong Un. And they're actually friends. They hit it off while watching a basketball game together during Rodman's first visit. Since then he's been back several times, sang karaoke with the dictator and has even held Kim's baby daughter

Besides that, he's one of the few calm voices on North Korea. Nuclear expert Siegfried Hecker told the Washington Post

The real threat is stumbling into an inadvertent nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula by misunderstanding or miscalculation. Inflammatory rhetoric on both sides will make that more likely. It’s time to tone down the rhetoric.

Who better to repair relations with North Korea and open a diplomatic channel than Dennis Rodman? Crazier things have happened.

Trump's supporters say he's bucking the same failed policy that's led America to this situation. Had past presidents handled the situation instead of kicking it down the road, we wouldn't be in this situation today. 

Trump is signaling loud and clear to North Korea that the status quo which allowed them to develop nuclear weapons no longer exists. Instead of waiting for North Korea to further develop its nuclear arsenal and ICBM capabilities, Trump is taking action. Already, the UN has imposed sanctions that will cost North Korea roughly $1 billion.

In this 1999 interview with Meet the Press, Trump gives a clear explanation of what he would do in North Korea. He has a strategy and we're seeing it play out.
