Donald Trump has come under criticism for meeting with Kim Jong-un and withdrawing America from the Iran nuclear deal. But, in this essay for Foreign Affairs, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo explains how Trump’s strategy of “disruptive boldness” will put “maximum pressure” on these rogue nations. Though Pompeo fails to address some key criticisms of Trump’s approach, he persuasively argues why the president’s policy will succeed in bringing Iran and North Korea to heel. getAbstract recommends this article to those looking for a deeper understanding of Trump’s approach toward Iran and North Korea.
In this summary, you will learn
