Wow. President Trump
wrapped up his visit to South Korea
with a speech square in the tradition of President Ronald Reagan. It's not just that he talked about the long conflict on the Korean peninsula: the "dazzling light" of South Korea
versus the "impenetrable darkness" of the North, the glories of freedom versus the toll of tyranny, the line that separates them just north of Seoul, and America's commitment to defending it. What made this a landmark speech is that Trump explained, vividly and in detail, why the internal depravities of the North Korea
n regime are intimately entwined with its nuclear program and its threats to South Korea
, and the rest of the Free World. Coming from an American president, this was a speech the world has long needed to hear.
