The ensuing negotiations will lead nowhere.

The North Koreans will soon realize that the character traits and administration disarray that encouraged them to manipulate President Trump will prevent any follow-through by the United States.

To the Editor:

I usually agree with Nicholas Kristof’s insightful columns, but I have to disagree with this one. Democrats are not trying to sabotage President Trump’s historic meeting with Kim Jong-un because they want to see Mr. Trump fail (as Republicans sabotaged every effort of President Barack Obama to correct this country’s ills).

They are fearful because they have so little confidence in President Trump. The Democratic senators’ letter was an effort to educate a president who is woefully ignorant of the issues at stake; it is not an effort to undercut the meeting.

To the Editor:

Re “Kim’s Abrupt Makeover: Lunacy to Diplomacy” (front page, June 7): Only juxtaposition with President Trump makes a despot like Kim Jong-un look normalized — and that’s a problem. This is a man who starves, murders and imprisons his own people, all to suit himself and to maintain his own power. It is shameful beyond belief that we have a president so eager to bend to the will of a dictator like Mr. Kim.
