Would you rather have Dennis Rodman or Donald Trump handle North Korea?

North Korea says it's willing to talk with the U.S. and South Korea about denuclearization, but some worry President Trump could hurt negotiations. Many believe we should put someone with more experience in charge, like Dennis Rodman. Rodman's been to North Korea several times and has maintained a strong friendship with Kim Jong Un. Meanwhile, Trump promised North Korea would "be met with fire and fury," and continues to taunt Kim Jong Un on Twitter. 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 Rodman? Crazier things have happened...

Trump, on the other hand, began 2018 by once again threatening Kim Jong Un on Twitter.

Which caused many to turn to Rodman as our last hope against nuclear war.

And the best person to represent the U.S. in North Korea negotiations.

But after North Korea said it was willing to hold talks with the U.S. and South Korea about denuclearization, Trump sent a calm and encouraging tweet.

Trump's supporters say he's bucking the failed policy that led America into this situation in the first place. Had past presidents handled the situation with force instead of kicking the problem down the road, we wouldn't be here 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. The UN already imposed sanctions that will cost North Korea roughly $1 billion, and it seems this has finally brought North Korea to the negotiating table.

In a 1999 Meet the Press interview, Trump gave a clear explanation of how he would handle North Korea. He has a strategy and we're seeing it play out.
