Cato’s Doug Bandow returns to the show to discuss Donald Trump’s decision to negotiate seriously with the North Koreans. Bandow believes that, while much can still go wrong, this is a real opportunity for traction and progress. Bandow raises the Iran Deal and the North Koreans certain interest in what the Trump administration will ultimately decide to do with the existing agreement with Iran. The interview then turns to Iran, and whether Donald Trump could take the same approach to Iran that he’s begun with North Korea. Bandow follows by breaking down the sectarian conflict in Yemen between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Finally, Bandow circles back to North Korea and explains what he thinks is essential for peace to be achieved.
