Earlier this year, just weeks before the Winter Olympics in South Korea, four current and former administration officials said President Trump ordered his top national security officials to prepare to evacuate the families of all US military personnel living in South Korea. The Olympics served as a critical diplomatic opening with Pyongyang,
Had it been fully implemented, the order would have heightened tensions with North Korea and could have sent the region spiraling closer to war.
The presidential order is the clearest indication yet that Trump viewed war with North Korea as a real possibility. This even as recently as the beginning of this year. The rapid shift from provocative steps to summit diplomacy illustrates the whipsaw approach the President has adopted on the global stage.
