Opinion | How North Korea Fools Trump

To the Editor:

Re “Hidden Bases in North Korea Suggest Deceit” (front page, Nov. 12):

North Korea’s continuing its ballistic missile program once again reveals the gullibility and innate ignorance of Donald Trump when it comes to foreign affairs.

His susceptibility to fanfare and flattery leads him to mistake after mistake, especially when it comes to despots like Kim Jong-un of North Korea and Vladimir Putin of Russia, autocrats he admires and longs to emulate.

While the world’s leaders no doubt cringe at his bombast and inadequacies, his failures on the world stage encourage the enemies of peace and democracy.

Mr. Trump says he “fell in love” in Singapore, but for Mr. Kim it was just a one-night stand with no commitment!
