I think the Kim-Trump summit will take place and believe that it is already a firm political decision for both sides. President Trump’s primary goal in 2018 is to rack up some visible (even if short-term) wins to see the Republicans through the mid-term elections, and provide a foundation for his reelection. Therefore, though offended by South Korea’s push for reconciliation, Trump was pragmatic enough to take the ball thrown to him by Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un. At the same time he loudly proclaims the benefits of US sanctions, trying to claim credit for making North Korea negotiate.
