Quoted: Japan Times on Nobel Prize for Trump

“I appreciate that Donald Trump accepted the summit invite and continued the pressure campaign. But to give him credit based on those is like giving a broken clock credit for being right twice a day,” said Mintaro Oba, a former U.S. State Department official who worked on North Korean affairs.
“The broader truth is that it’s broken,” Oba said. “In Trump’s case, the broader context is a history of unhinged and reactive actions that dangerously escalated tensions on the Korean Peninsula before South Korean diplomacy changed the conversation.”
