Trump Stopped Insulting Kim Jong Un 9 Weeks Ago? Why?

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will meet face-to-face for the first time this year, in what will be a historic moment. But the encounter, set to take place before May, hasn’t been a bolt from the blue. The US president has significantly toned down his fiery rhetoric against North Korea in 2018. Kim’s regime, meanwhile, has slowed down nuclear development, halted missile tests, and engaged with South Korea during the Winter Olympics.
