Credit President Trump for seizing the diplomatic moment at the Singapore summit.It's almost a magic trick, what Kim has accomplished: He has obtained Trump as a partner in rebranding his poor, brutally autocratic country as a modern condo-resort investment project. For now, Kim has given up very little militarily, in return for a public embrace from the world's most powerful nation.The world is safer than it was a week ago, and Trump is getting some deserved global applause.By Tuesday, it was clear that Kim was getting more than he was giving, and that Trump wanted the summit so badly that he was prepared to swallow some of his earlier demands.A final, astonishing aspect of Tuesday's summit was Trump's gratuitous swipe at South Korea, a faithful democratic ally. I don't just mean Trump's sudden decision to shelve "provocative" U.S.-South Korean military exercises; America still has plenty of military power nearby, if needed.
