This would be a win-win situation for North Korea.
They get to keep their nuclear deterrence and also enjoy hamburgers.
If Trump starts to soften up maybe Kim can agree to a Taco Bell too.

North Korea won’t give up nukes, may open burger joint instead
By Joe Tacopino -- NYPost -- May 29, 2018

A new intelligence analysis reportedly states that the North Korean regime is not willing to give up their nukes, but instead may open a US burger joint in the capital of Pyongyang.

The CIA assessment on Kim Jong-un’s goals for the historic summit with President Trump claims the North Korean leader will not destroy his nuclear stockpile — conflicting with Trump’s stated goal of the talks, according to NBC News.

“Everybody knows they are not going to denuclearize,” an intelligence official told the network.

NBC reports that among a list of concessions Kim may consider “offering to open a Western hamburger franchise in Pyongyang as a show of goodwill.”

On the campaign trail, Trump floated the idea of high-level diplomacy over hamburgers instead of expensive state dinners.

“We should be eating a hamburger on a conference table, and we should make better deals with China and others and forget the state dinners,” Trump said at an Atlanta rally in June of 2016.

Trump and Kim are expected to meet in Singapore on June 12, although the summit has been canceled at least once already.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
