Something approaching relief followed last week’s announcement that President Donald Trump will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had just returned from Pyongyang with three Americans that North Korea had kidnapped. “I think he did this because I really think he wants to do something and bring that country into the real world,” Trump said of Kim, who last year sent home another American prisoner, Otto Warmbier, in a coma. (He died a short time later.)

There is no question that plans for the meeting are better than having Trump still threatening “Rocketman” with “fire and fury,” and North Korea shooting off missiles that could reach Washington. But the personal diplomacy between the two risk-loving leaders could also be dangerous.
