Why Trump should not meet with Kim

This is what Trump should have said in his response to KJU:

"Thank you for your gracious invitation. However, President Moon has my complete trust and confidence. I will support the arrangements that you and President Moon make regarding denuclearization and stability on the Korean Peninsula. In the meantime, I wish you and president Moon success in the struggle for peace and understanding."

KJU knows that Trump is all about display and so is KJU. Having Trump come to Korea to meet him only creates an image that suggests we have capitulated

We have been here before and our involvement has done nothing in the long run. NK will demand cash and to have sanctions lifted just like they always had. And as before NK will refrain from further launches and tests but not give up their nuclear program. We are already seeing patterns from the 1955 negotiations. (See the part about the car salesman from C. Turner Joy’s ‘How Communists Negotiate’ full text here 

By accepting this invitation we are expected to make good on the deal while the ROK gets what they want: No war.

Instead, Trump needs to pass the ball to Moon and walk away. Moon will take the ball and run with it all the way to the end zone. It's time for us to remove the ground force and get out. NK is not our problem. Let Moon and Xi solve it.
