There was, at times, a surreal quality to the carefully staged, five-hour meeting of two men who had been threatening each other with nuclear war and insulting each other's mental and physical attributes just months before.

After almost five hours of unprecedented talks between Trump and Kim on Tuesday, the two leaders signed a document in which Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" and the United States agreed to "provide security guarantees".

It's true that Kim responded with heated attacks, and the rhetoric escalated on both sides, but the American president shouldn't be elevating a despot like Kim in the first place and further instigating confrontation.
"We had a historic meeting and made a decision to leave the past behind", Kim said as he and Trump signed the joint statement, adding, "The world will see a major change". He met for almost an hour at the air base with Gen. Vincent Brooks, commander of U.S. Forces Korea, before heading by motorcade to Seoul.
