Trump announced last week that he will sit down with

for their second summit. Their first summit in Singapore last June resulted in Kim’s vague commitment to the “complete

denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” a term that his propaganda machine previously used w

hen it argued it would only denuclearize after the U.S. withdraws its troops from South Korea.

Trump’s top envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, visited Pyongyang last week to work out details of the upcoming summit. After

being briefed by Biegun about his Pyongyang trip, South Korea’s presidential office said Sunday that U.S. a

nd North Korean officials plan to meet again the week of Feb. 17 in an unidentified Asian country.

The U.S. military arrived in South Korea to disarm Japan, which colonized the K

orean Peninsula from 1910-45, following its World War II defeat. Most U.S.

troops were withdrawn in 1949 but they returned the next year to fight alongside South Korea in the Korean War.
