What is Trump’s policy on North Korea?

Al Jazeera looks at both Donald Trump’s boasts of his willingness to wage war upon North Korea and his claim that he is willing to sit down with its leader, Kim Jong-un, to determine what US policy towards North Korea really is.

As US President Donald Trump prepares to mark one year since his inauguration, we’re examining how his administration has handled some of its key policies.

When it comes to foreign policy, his biggest challenge has arguably been the threat of North Korea’s nuclear weapons.

Trump has threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea and personally insulted its leader, but also suggested he’d be willing to sit down for talks with Kim Jong-un.
