North Korea is expected to begin dismantling its nuclear site between Wednesday and Friday this week, ahead of a planned summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in June. The dismantling is weather-dependent, which is why there is a range for when it will formally be dismantled. The event is taking place amid some tensions surrounding the upcoming Trump-Kim summit set for June 12 in Singapore, which North Korea last week threatened to cancel over U.S.-South Korean military drills. Trump said yesterday the summit might not happen in June, but there have been no official announcements about a date change or change of plans. A small number

Two congressman from different corners of the country and the political aisle warned Tuesday that it would be a mistake to remove U.S. troops from the Korean Peninsula. Reps. Steve Russell, R-Okla., and Ted Lieu, D-Calif., military veterans and members of a key House panel focused on defense issues, also said while they are skeptical of the motivations driving North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, they believe a summit slated between the regime leader and President Donald Trump should go forward. Russell and Lieu are members of the House Armed Services Committee and made the comments during a wide-ranging discussion at the United States Institute of Peace, a federally funded, nonpartisan think

As the clock winds down to the U.S.-North Korea Summit on June 12 in Singapore, Kim Jong Un would be wise to accept President Trump’s terms for peace on the Korean Peninsula. That’s because he’ll never get a better deal. While Trump has been the toughest American president on North Korea since Harry Truman during the 1950s Korean War, paradoxically he’s also the most eager to negotiate and escape the status quo. One on hand, Trump boldly threatened North Korea with “fire and fury like the world has never seen,” taunted Kim Jong Un as “Little Rocket Man” and “short and fat,” while declaring he was “on a suicide mission.” And he’s

Intelligence officials suspect that North Korea’s sudden threat to cancel the upcoming summit with the U.S. is a way for the country to buy time in order to hide its nuclear weapons. Pyongyang is reportedly concerned about President Trump’s all-or-nothing approach to denuclearization, the Washington Times reported this week. North Korea’s threat to abandon the summit was largely a propaganda ploy for Kim Jong Un to show his audience that he is not willing to surrender to Trump’s demands, intelligence officials said. The move could also leave them an out if they decide to conceal their nuclear weapons and dismantle certain facilities, officials said. Download our FREE Mobile App – The Highest

President Donald Trump disavowed a controversial remark made by his national security adviser, John Bolton, as he appeared increasingly eager Thursday to preserve a historic one-on-one meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un scheduled for next month. Bolton had spooked North Koreans recently by suggesting Pyongyang follow the path taken by Libya more than a decade ago, when that country abandoned its effort to build nuclear weapons in exchange for economic benefits and warmer relations. Within a few years, Libya’s leader, Moammar Gadhafi, lost his job and his life at the hands of Western-backed rebels. “The Libyan model isn’t a model that we have at all,” Trump told reporters during
