Re: Trump presidency

I get the feeling Trump's strategy is to play chicken and hope NK backs down first. The US does have the advantage that if NK does launch a missile to Guam, even if the target is 30-40km off the coast like Un promised, they could possibly shoot the missile down, showing that even if NK does have mis...
