Yesterday, Donald Trump agreed to meet with the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. The meeting is said to take place some time between now and May. Due to Trump’s history with unscripted public speaking (calling Mexican immigrants rapists, mocking a man with disabilities, labeling Haiti as a “shithole country”), many people are unnerved, to say the least. Trump’s immense inability to speak maturely or respectfully puts America in a tight spot. Should he accidentally offend North Korea’s unpredictable leader, he potentially endangers the well-being of the United States as a whole. If this meeting does take place, it will be the first between an American president and a North Korean leader. According to CNN’s Chris Cillizza, “It actually makes perfect sense that Trump is willing to roll the dice on such a massive stage. The move to meet with Kim is actually something very close to the Platonic ideal of Trumpism.” Trump thrives on the idea that he is a history maker, an innovative leader, and a risk taker. By demonstrating his consent to hold this meeting, he feeds into his personal ideals, rather than considering the safety of the country he is supposed to lead. So what should we, the American people, expect from such a groundbreaking interaction? Judging by previous twitter rampages and button comparisons, I would venture to guess that an immense spitting contest is underway. When your world leaders act like children, the best thing to do is hide in your bunker and wait for them to make some huge irreversible mistake all in the name of national pride.
