That's the question labor reporters used to ask about big contract negotiations back when I covered the United Steelworkers union 40 years ago in Pittsburgh – and it's the right one to pose now as U.S. President Donald Trump zigs and zags toward a summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.Trump and Kim appear to be firmly back on the road to a June 12 meeting in Singapore, after a near-death experience last week. Trump's temperamental swings along the way are familiar to anyone who has covered labor talks (maybe real estate negotiations are the same way, too).Through it all, Trump has kept returning to his baseline: He wants a deal, but isn't willing to alter his demand for denuclearization.The Trump-Kim dynamic has developed enough momentum over the past year to survive last week's shock. From his first day in office, Trump has seen North Korea as his biggest test, and he hungers for the deal that escaped his predecessors.
