It appears that President Donald Trump decided that a bad deal with North Korea was worse than no deal, a reasonable conclusion that suggests he and his team were approaching this important issue with the seriousness it deserves.In truth, the U.S. does not have a great track record of honoring its international commitments either.If you were a North Korean statesman, you'd surely study the last important international agreement negotiated and signed by an American president: the Iran nuclear deal.Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif explained to me on several occasions that, despite the language of the deal, the Obama administration approved barely any commercial transactions between Iran and the United States. And once Trump took office, his administration began actively undermining it and even violating it, lobbying European countries to boycott Iran and using the dollar's power to freeze any business with Iran. Pyongyang made clear that if the U.S. did not live up to its end of the deal, it would renege on its own obligations.
