Alabama congressmen seem optimistic about the U.S./North Korea summit

Depending on who you watched or listened to this morning, the meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is either the greatest diplomatic feat of all time or a massive failure that will empower a madman.

The reality is much simpler: We have no idea what is going to happen here.

Some Alabama congressmen have looked at these development with a positive outlook towards the future.

Why this matters:

At this point, no one knows where all of this is headed. All we know is this is different and uncharted territory. We have gone from “fire and fury” and “little rocketman” to a summit in almost no time.

We have a president who operates outside of diplomatic, and even societal, norms. We also have to acknowledge that the status quo on North Korea has led to a nuclear-armed police state, but a new path could yield a new future.

At least some of Alabama’s Republican congressmen seem willing to take this risk.
