Donald Trump’s historic week in foreign policy

By: Fidel Gastelum, Reporter

In a matter of a week, Donald Trump, in addition to participating in the G-20 summit, executed two unexpected actions, which undoubtedly caused controversy, with which he won the approval of many.

During the G-20summit, the president of the United States agreed with Xi-Jinping, president of the People’s Republic of China, to withdraw the sanction imposed on Huawei, being previously accused of alleged espionage, a few weeks ago.

That’s right, what was supposed to be the beginning of a Commercial War, which some pointed out as the “New Cold War”, seems to have taken a truce. We will have to see how this issue evolves.

On the other hand, Trump took advantage of his visit to Japan, where the G-20 summit took place, in the city of Osaka. Then, he visited the Korean peninsula, and met with his North Korean counterpart, in the famous “Demilitarized Zone of Korea”, the strip that has divided both parts of Korea for more than 65 years.

There, he met with Kim Jong Un, president of North Korea, with whom he discussed issues related to the Treaty of nuclear military activity, which is sought to reach a point of mutual agreement between the two nations.

Thus, on Sunday, June 30, 2019, Donald Trump, became the first US president to step on North Korean territory, since the Korean War (1950-1953) divided both areas of Korea, to this day.

The president’s foreign policy is taking different courses, causing divided opinions among the American people, ahead of his campaign for his possible reelection in 2020.
