The spread of nuclear weapons poses an international security challenge. With nuclear weapons just a button-push away, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump have sparred over social media as the hermit state continues to launch provocative missile tests.
As tensions with North Korea run high, the proliferation of nuclear weapons and how U.S. policy should respond are pressing issues. Dr. Robert L. Gallucci, the chief U.S. negotiator during the 1994 North Korean nuclear crisis and former president of the MacArthur Foundation will provide insights and unpack reality from rhetoric.
