President Trump is now about to wing it on an epic, global stage in his planned face-to-face meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Nobody in Washington or abroad seems to know just what Trump wants to accomplish in the meeting – an ambiguity that Trump apparently views as a beneficial source of leverage.There's a consensus that Trump has a big opportunity, but a very risky one, since the deal that's doable now may not be one that he can (or should) accept.The meeting will set the stage for Trump's encounter and allow some preliminary U.S.-North Korean contact.China is acting as a diplomatic concierge. Worried that they might be excluded from the Kim-Trump feast, the Chinese invited the North Korean leader last week to Beijing.
