One for the history books: The saying goes that “only Nixon could go to China” in a historic meeting decades ago. On Sunday, Donald Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to “step across the border at the demilitarized zone into North Korea” as he wrapped up his trip to Asia. Said Trump of the meeting with Kim Jong Un: They “had a very productive meeting” during which he pitched “prosperity”  if Kim gives up its nuclear program.
