All the news worth knowing today.
As the G-7 summit has come to a close in Canada, U.S. President Donald Trump is now preparing for a historic summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. George Friedman breaks down what really happened at the G-7 and what could come from the meeting in Singapore.
Earlier this week, President Trump declared the U.S. would pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which is better known as the Iran Nuclear Deal. This follows the administration’s decisions to leave the Paris Climate Agreement, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and enter into NAFTA renegotiations.
How does this affect how the U.S. is seen by allies and adversaries alike?
Kim Jong Un has promised to make steps toward a denuclearization of Korea. Can he be trusted? Is there any hope for improved human rights in a country where they are virtually nonexistent? Is this a sign of improved relations between North Korea and the rest of the world, or is Kim just playing everyone for fools? Geopolitical Futures Chairman George Friedman has closely followed the situation.
