On November 5th, President Trump arrives in Japan to begin his first Asian tour, as U.S. President. Needless to say, the security will be extraordinary, due to so much "tension" in the area, courtesy of North Korea's leader, Kim Jong.


Following the Japan leg of his trip, Trump will visit South Korea on November 7, where he will meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. Trump will address the South Korean National Assembly. Trump’s time in South Korea will also be focused on isolating North Korea and on the U.S.-South Korea alliance.

Overview of the President's Asian Tour: thediplomat.com...

The BIG DEBATE, is whether or not President Trump should visit the DeMilitarized Zone (DMZ)..the strip of land that acts as a "buffer" between the countries of North Korea, and South Korea. DMZ Explained: en.wikipedia.org...


A debate is reportedly raging inside the White House over whether President Donald Trump should visit the demilitarized zone along the North Korean border during his upcoming 12-day trip to Asia. Some administration sources tell the Washington Post they worry the visit would only heighten tensions in the region.. and they fear for Mr. Trump's overall safety, as well.

Why President Trump SHOULD visit the DMZ: www.cnbc.com...

The above article describes how President Trump can make a historic speech at the DMZ, which could soothe tensions in the region, and be a starting point for peace, much like John Kennedy and Ronald Regean did, when they visited the Berlin Wall.

Those of you who are "in the know" on these issues, and prior precedents, what are your thoughts? Should President Donald Trump visit the DMZ and deliver a major speech, related to current events in that region of the world?

Is it LIKELY that Kim Jong will fire a rocket at that location, while his mortal enemey is visiting?

That would be good. If he can stay away from the Rocket Man crap. Doubtful.

Well if Kim wanted to use a nuke or two, that would be the time to do it.

I think it madness for the POTUS to be anywhere near there in this point of time.

I think it will add tension regardless. More security even though everyone is war gaming in the region.

How could he sooth tensions? Definitely not by twitter.

Interesting.

November 5th is reportedly the start of nation wide unrest/protests as planned by anarchists, Antifa and the disgruntled.

President will be out of the country and his first stop is Japan....

Hmm..Kim has already proved he can hit Japan..

He might just be nutty enough to fire one off( that of course will be shot down,) but nevertheless it could be a combination of scenarios, foreign and domestic, that the NWO could exploit to completely tear apart the social fabric of multiple nations..

Hey, you never know, this is ATS.

At least my comment is in the right forum...

You're right. He should just stay in Washington while he's president. Safer for everyone.

Only if you put him in mittens.

He needs to go to Arizona and have a beer summit with McCain.

Well, he has used the ROCKET MAN jargon already. That was historical, but Trump will need to come up with something more dramatic in a DMZ speech.

Thank-you for the input, Terminal1. The article says that White House insiders are fiercely debating a possible DMZ visit. I'd like to know WHO is against it, and WHO is for it. General Kelly carries a lot of weight. I wonder which side of the argument he is on?

The leaders of Japan and South Korea are very brave, considering that Kim Jong might see President Trump as a target too good to pass up. Like you said, Who Knows. Those leaders might get "cold feet" and uninvite the target.

Sending Trump to South Korea will be like blowing on embers with propane. If war is the goal, send him in and let him speak his mind. If it isn't, he should focus more on US export trade with SK and Japan.

Just have to wait and see where the lots fall.

I know it makes me a little nervous seeing assets from many nations swirling around within proven strike range.

Personally I think it is a bad idea and whoever thought this up should be sent to their room without supper.

Ten United States presidents have made presidential visits to East Asia. The first presidential trip to a country in East Asia was made by Dwight D. Eisenhower (as president-elect) in 1952. Since then, all presidents, except John F. Kennedy, have travelled to one or more nations in the region while in office. To date, twenty visits have been made to Japan, eighteen to South Korea, eleven to China, and one to both Mongolia and Taiwan. No incumbent president has yet visited North Korea (which does not have diplomatic relations with the U.S.[1]).

That no president has been invited to North Korea.

This is about a visit to the other Korea.

I know where it is Phage and yes SK has been visited. But has SK been visited before with such aggressive political climate as now?

Were there direct threats to the USA from NK back then with nuclear technologies like this?



North Korean official says diplomacy is off the table until it builds a missile that can hit the east coast of the US.
