U.S. President Donald Trump certainly has a point when he complains that he inherited the difficult problem in North Korea.But the fact that Trump inherited the problem does not absolve him of responsibility for addressing it. So far, he has failed even to articulate, much less implement, a strategy for dealing with North Korea.Trump's latest attempt to deal with the problem came last month, when he noisily announced that his administration was putting North Korea back on the U.S. State Department's list of state sponsors of terrorism.North Korea, however, is not a member of any international financial institution.Still, even as a symbolic gesture, the context of Bush's decision to remove North Korea from the list was entirely different from that of Trump's decision to restore it.The fact that Trump can put North Korea back on the terrorism list with little bureaucratic fuss and virtually no international repercussions demonstrates why the list is a useful sanction for the U.S. to have at its disposal.
