Trump knows there won’t be a fairytale ending with North Korea, despite how well things have been going so far. But one thing we know about US President Donald Trump, he gets the job done.
Despite a lot of noise from his minions, the world has heard nothing from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. His silence is in stark difference to the harsh threats of war he threw around in 2017.

In Australia, our newspapers criticise and oppose the government on a daily basis. However, apparently in Thailand, it’s a no-no to criticise the government too harshly. Even if you’re writing the criticism in a foreign language.

In moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, US President Donald Trump enraged many Palestinians, who see the city as their own capital. But in making the bold and controversial move, Trump may well be forcing both sides to move forward towards a peace deal.
If not for Trump’s highly controversial and aggressive stand, there is little doubt that North Korea would still be actively pursuing its nuclear weapons program.
