The stakes are high, and deadly serious. But Trump disregards facts, advice, and the interests that keep America safe
The Donald Trump-Kim Jong-un show has been picked up for a second season, which will kick off with a live broadcast from Vietnam at the end of February.
The show’s producers and the TV networks were so thrilled with the first season in Singapore in 2018, the sequel was a no brainer. The thrill of the first ever meeting between leaders from the United States and North Korea – and these two leaders at that – merited round-the-clock coverage. The media was blanketed with breathless analysis for weeks on end, and on the day of the main event analysts in capitals across the globe stayed up all night to watch it live. Who could resist?
