2. #1 - a complete reversal of the disastrous situation that existed under Obama. In 2016, there was a genuine risk of conflict between the US, NK & SK.
The deaths would have been staggering, but that's the trajectory the US was headed on.
#2 - All NK provocative and dangerous missile launches have stopped dead. At one time, these launches were traversing Japan itself. Not anymore.
3. #3 - NK has dismantled major nuke sites esp Punggyeri. This has been verified. FakeNews are trying to memory hole this.
#4 - release of hostages. KJU has returned ALL US hostages, including remains of vets KIA in the Korean War.
#5 - genuine prospects for denuclearization on the Peninsula. This has not been achieved yet, but the prospects are now realistic as opposed to unthinkable, just 3 years ago.
4. #6 - genuine rapprochement between NK & USA, NK & SK. This changes the calculus between all nation states from one of conflict, to one of mutual gain.
#7 - Beijing's influence in NK has been reduced significantly. Trump has expertly clubbed Beijing with US economic power to extract major concessions, esp their ability to wield NK as a strategy weapon.
5. #8 - Beijing influence in the region is being reduced because they're being outplayed in NK - esp their aggressive moves in the South China Sea.
#9 - huge increase in American prestige and power projection. Just look at Trump's presence at the G20. He's hugely respected (and feared).
Oh - a 10th benefit?
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
