Okay, let's see what happens next. The US embassy would be a clincher.

It seems to me that Trump's idea is to basically take the other side in order to befriend them and in order to gain trust he has to turn his back on the other countries. Then he just has to get them to see his way and make friends with the other countries again. Basic logic there, albeit risky on such a large scale but I would say the way he's going about it is the only way to do it in that sense. I'm not sure the countries he's trying to befriend won't see through it in the long run though and would like to hang onto the power via the direction they initially headed. Again, let's see what happens next.

I'm pretty sure your right, Clinton did the same thing even suspended the 'war games' with South Korea. They need United nations boots on the ground in North Korea and targets for when each stage should be completed, none of which is in the latest agreement, but it is just the beginning of Trumps turn at this and we'll have to see how he does things differently (if at all).
