All going swimmingly

If not for Trump, we would now be at war with North Korea. Why is that exactly? What is the chain of causation there? The Post attempts to figure it out.

President Trump said Tuesday that the United States would be at war with North Korea without his efforts and that conversations with the nation’s leaders are “going well” — an assessment at odds with recent reports that North Korea is working to conceal key aspects of its nuclear weapons program.

Well, it depends on what you mean by “going well.” Trump has idiosyncratic interpretations of a lot of words and phrases, and “going well” is probably one of them.

The president’s comments in a morning tweet followed a report Saturday in The Washington Post that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded that North Korea does not intend to fully surrender its nuclear arms stockpile and instead is considering ways to conceal the number of weapons it has and its secret production facilities.

Maybe that’s what Trump means by “going well” – they’re hiding it so we won’t know about it so we won’t have to worry about it.
