The United States has been preparing for the possibility of a Kim Jong Un win for months now.
The North Korean dictator has shown an affinity for the United States in recent years.
And in recent weeks, he has made clear his disdain for President Donald Trump, who he called “the most ungrateful, dishonest and cruel man in America.”
But what will happen in November is just one of many tests that Trump faces to prove that he’s a capable leader.
Trump will need to demonstrate that he can manage the North Korean nuclear threat while balancing the United Nations with an equally tough stance on the Chinese Communist Party.
And, in that role, he will need an even-keeled and flexible leader.
North Korea’s current leader is Kim Jong Il, who is expected to be succeeded by his son, Kim Jong Nam, in early 2019.
A new leader would face a lot of challenges, including ensuring that the North Koreans can live up to their rhetoric that they’re building a “new world order” while also maintaining their nuclear weapons program.
The next president will also face the daunting task of managing a country that is a key player in global economic and military competition.
