Tensions between Trump and Kim Jung Un have been high after the President repeatedly used his Twitter account to attack the North Korean leader. It appears that the Olympic Games in South Korea may have been motivation for the three nations to come together and discuss new policies for the future.

The United States has been actively involved in the Korean Peninsula since the late 50s and this new turn in relations could signal a peaceful and pragmatic end to our affairs between the two countries.
North Korea leader Kim Jung Un has agitated the United States and the Pacific theater over the last two years as he has routinely tested new missile technology in the Sea of Japan and the Pacific Ocean.
This new development signals a major win for Donald Trump who has been lambasted and attacked over his strategy for dealing with the North Korean leader.
A time and place for the meeting have not been announced yet.
