Executive Director Will Inboden on what to expect from Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un's summit

William Inboden Jun 11, 2018

In an interview with the Texas Standard, Executive Director Will Inboden says the upcoming meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un is tremendously important, as “no other sitting U.S. president has ever met with a leader of North Korea.”

Inboden believes the outcome of this meeting is nearly impossible to predict, as Trump “doesn’t seem to have any particular plans going in.” Instead he will be "just famously relying on his instincts and his gut and is going to be winging it.” Inboden further notes that Kim Jong Un has accomplished some of his key goals by the mere fact of the summit, whereas so far, Trump has not yet achieved anything on behalf of the United States.
