The U.S. has been in a feud with North Korea since the Korean war, and most recently North Korea has spoken with South Korea about potentially giving up their nuclear weapons, not just stopping production and storing them, but getting rid of them. North Korea has had many tests of their nuclear weapons since 2006.

In President Donald Trump’s first year in presidency, there was a war of words between the two leader. Trump has called Kim Jong-un ¨rocket man¨, and Jong-un has warned the U.S. president to watch what he says. Trump tweeted in September of 2017 ¨Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!¨ Trump said that after a back and forth series of comments.

After almost 65 years at war, South Korea and North Korea have made amends. For the 2018 winter olympics held in PyeongChang South Korea, South Korea and North Korea representatives walked together, even Kim Jong Un’s sister walked and competed. Although they didn’t win a single medal in any class, they brought 10 athletes to compete.

North Korea is a dictatorship type of country, and have had many rulers in the past 65 years, each is related to each other. There have been three dictators since the Soviet Union retreated to the top half of North Korea at the end of World War ll. First it was Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-il, now Kim Jong-un.
