Trump Slaps Down Dialogue With North Korea As Another Tense Month Begins

October looks set to bring even greater tensions with North Korea, with key anniversaries offering opportunities for new regime nuclear or missile provocations at a time when President Trump seems disinclined to pursue a diplomatic response.Trump’s Sunday tweet saying Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was “wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man” – Kim Jong-un – came a day after Tillerson, visiting China, said the U.S. has “lines of communication” with Pyongyang and was “probing” to see whether it was interested in dialogue.“Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” Trump said, then in another tweet several hours later added, “Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail.”Previous unsuccessful attempts to negotiate a resolution to the nuclear standoff included President Clinton’s 1994 Agreed Framework, President Bush’s six-party talks agreements in 2005 and 2007, and President Obama’s short-lived “Leap Day deal” in 2012.
