Six months ago, we couldn’t have fathomed a tête-a-tête between President Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un. Back then, each was comparing the size of their nuclear button and trading personal insults.

The archrivals are now scheduled to meet Tuesday; the first time that a sitting U.S. president has met with a North Korean leader.

For the United States, the primary goal is for North Korea to begin the process of denuclearization. Because its nuclear capabilities are what got North Korea to the bargaining table in the first place, that’s a tall order and will take much convincing Mr. Kim that components other than armaments make for a successful country.
