Trump’s seemingly off-the-cuff decision to meet Kim Jong-un proves that he truly does believe he can do it all by himself. He alone can fix it.
That may sound good at a campaign rally, but that’s not how you run a country. Or at least one that aspires to democracy and separation of powers, and when it comes to making snap decisions in a time of crisis — e.g. under attack — it doesn’t bode well for the outcome. Even when he says he’s brought in “the best people,” he’s ignored their counsel and gone with the words of the nearest toady.
