     Austrailian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said President Trump "absolutely" deserved credit for the peace talks and historic meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea. Turnbull told reporters in Sydney on Saturday that Trump's hard-line approach on the Korean Peninsula helped lead to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un open up to peace talks and the meeting this week between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in in the Demilitarized Zone separating the two nations. "I’ve given him that credit because Donald Trump has taken a very, very strong, hard line on the denuclearization issue and he has been able to bring in the support of the global community and, in particular, China," Turnbull said, according to Australian media.

     For months, tension built as Trump and Kim slung insults and terrifying threats of war back and forth as Kim continued testing missiles. Trump's name-calling accompanied sanctions and calls for neighboring countries to punish the nation. North Korea's economy is heavily tied to China so when the Chinese government enforced the sanctions on trade, Kim felt the effects.

     There is only one person that should be credited, if Un makes a deal - Trump.
