It’s yet another remarkable accomplishment for the Trump administration that the Establishment Media ignores – the normalization of North Korea and South Korea after more than sixty years of war. It is a transition that could potentially unify tens of millions of families who have long been separated by political and military barriers that in turn would greatly help to bring peace and prosperity to an entire region well beyond the borders of both Koreas. Bill Clinton couldn’t accomplish this. Neither could George W. Bush. During the Obama years the situation in North Korea became much worse. Now, after less than two years into the Trump presidency, peace is unfolding all across the Korean peninsula. So much so that Donald Trump is being called by many across the globe as the “President of Peace” even as the Deep State within the U.S. government continues to work against him.

INSIDE THE DEMILITARIZED ZONE — Dozens of North and South Korean soldiers crossed over the world’s most heavily armed border Wednesday as they inspected the sites of their rival’s front-line guard posts to verify they’d been removed, part of inter-Korean engagement efforts that come amid stalled U.S.-North Korea nuclear disarmament talks.
Soldiers from the two Koreas exchanged cigarettes and chatted as they inspected the dismantlement or disarmament of 22 guard posts — 11 from each country — inside the Demilitarized Zone that forms their 155-mile-long, 2.5-mile-wide border.
The inspections Wednesday were mostly symbolic — the removals will leave South Korea with about 50 other DMZ posts and North Korea with 150, according to defense experts in South Korea — but they mark an extraordinary change in ties from last year, when North Korea tested a series of increasingly powerful weapons and threatened Seoul and Washington with war.

The Trump administration’s efforts to get a sweeping and historic denuclearization agreement from North Korea continues.
