It has been almost nine months since President Donald Trump and Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un met in Sentosa, Singapore, and it seems as if North Korea has been completely dismissed as a threat in the interim. Trump and Kim’s summit in 2018 may not have denuclearized the peninsula but it did reduce the probability of war – bigly.
