What is the Trump Administration’s ‘North Korea Strategy?’
Trump’s North Korea strategy will be presented to the American people on Tuesday, but in a nutshell, it will be a mix of economic and diplomatic pressure.
The strategy is aimed at reducing tensions between the US and North Korea through “strategic patience” — the concept of holding off on further provocations until the country gets “tougher” on its nuclear weapons program.
Trump is hoping to create a sense of hope that the North Korean regime is more willing to negotiate, and that this is a way to avoid escalating tensions.
This could be accomplished through the North’s new ambassador to the US, Kim Kyung-hui, who is a longtime ally of Kim Jong Un and the current leader’s son.
Trump has said that he has no interest in reopening the Korean War, but that the US has been unable to “re-engage” with the North for the past three decades because the regime is “dead.”
It has taken some time for Trump to acknowledge the North as a threat, and this is the first step in achieving his goal of “peace through strength.”
Trump has also stated that he will “decide” whether or not to renew the American presence in South Korea, and the Trump administration has said he will make a decision in October.
The US-South Korean military relationship, which dates back to World War II, has been strained by North Korea’s repeated missile tests and a string of failed missile tests in recent months.
In December, the Trump regime announced it would start building up the US military presence in the country, with more than 70,000 troops already stationed in South Korean soil.
It has also begun deploying additional American troops to the peninsula, where they have been stationed for the last two years.
In addition to the South Korean deployment, the US is currently conducting exercises in Japan, South Korea and Australia.
The United States has also been sending hundreds of troops to South Korea in an attempt to bolster its own military presence there.
In March, the United States announced that it would deploy “hundreds of thousands” of troops in the Pacific, with the goal of training and equipping more than 2,000 Korean and Japanese troops.
North Korea has been in a state of war with South Korea since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with a truce, which is one of the longest diplomatic periods in North Korea history.
The North has not only fired missiles at US ships in the region, but also conducted several nuclear tests in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions and US commitments.
In April, North Korea also launched a missile over Japan, which was later detected by South Korea.
As part of the strategy, the North has also deployed two long-range missiles, the KN-08 and the KNB-54.
While these are capable of reaching Alaska and Hawaii, they are not equipped with nuclear warheads and have been known to malfunction during testing.
However, Pyongyang has said it will not allow the US to deploy nuclear weapons to the Korean Peninsula.
The Trump administration is not the first to use the strategy to try and deter the North.
Former President George W. Bush used the strategy during the first Gulf War in 1991, and it was implemented during the last days of the Clinton administration.
During that time, North Korean leaders began developing new missile technology, which led to the country’s testing of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.
During the Gulf War, the Pentagon conducted thousands of tests of nuclear missiles and bombers, including the North Chol, the only one capable of hitting the United Kingdom.
The most recent tests are expected to continue.

North Koreans have not used the tactic to date, but a US defense official told CNN that the country has a “limited” capability to strike the United Nations Security Council with nuclear weapons. However — unlike in 1991 — Kim Jong Nam is unlikely to use nuclear weapons against the United State, since he is still living in exile in Russia, and has no desire to destroy the country.
However he could theoretically launch a nuclear attack on the United Sates mainland with a missile.
North Kwon-do, the country that sits just off the coast of Japan, is a member of the Group of Seven major powers.
Japan has previously expressed concern over North Korea, especially in the wake of its recent nuclear tests.
Japan, however, has not officially recognized the North, and its Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has threatened to respond to North Korea with an attack.

A recent joint US-Korean military exercise was held in the Korean peninsula last month, with North Korea conducting four simulated nuclear tests, and several missile launches.
While there have been no major military confrontations, North Korea’s Kim Jong Kim has made statements in the past that have angered the United states.
In 2017, Kim said that Japan and South Korea should “come out of their shell” and stop acting as “hostile forces” in their respective regions.
Kim has also threatened to “pay dearly
