Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong Un could end in catastrophe — but that may be the point

Kim Jong Un

President Donald Trump is set to make history on June 12 in Singapore  by meeting Kim Jong Un in a high-stakes diplomatic summit — but it could be destined to fail. Experts doubt North Korea is sincere in its will to actually denuclearize, and they caution that high expectations for the summit could lease to massive failure. Kim could play Trump by making it look like he's the one who ruins the talks. That would put the US and North Korea back to square one, but this time without the possibility of talking to pull them back from the brink of nuclear war. One expert told Business Insider the most likely outcome is that the talks produce a mediocre agreement that merely kicks the can down the road for North Korea's denuclearization. 

President Donald Trump is set to make history on June 12 in Singapore as the first sitting US president to meet a sitting North Korean leader with peace and denuclearization are on the table.

But if the summit fails, it could end in catastrophe, and that may be the point.
