For many centuries, North Korea has had tensions with the United States and the rest of the world with their system of running their country. Defector Thae Yong Ho escaped the North Korean Embassy with his family. He explains that the longer the United States continues to keep their current terms and conditions affiliated with North Korea, the bigger North Korea's nuclear firepower increases. Because Kim Jong Un and his fathers before him have always had the system of eliminating any threats to their country, Thae believes that change and relations between both countries would have to be the change of power in North Korea.Despite all of This, Trump has offered a meeting with the leader of North Korea after his election. Thae explains that if Trump is to have a meeting with Kim Jong un, he is providing "legitimacy" for the leader. No country has met with Kim Jong Un yet. In March, sanctions have been passed through the United Nation's Security council.
