Gone are the days of carefully balanced power in the world now that President Donald Trump is no longer leading a diplomatic charge of “peace through strength.”

Under the Biden administration, nuclear superpowers North Korea and Russia are poised to meet to potentially discuss an arms deal, according to a report from The New York Times.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is reportedly set to have talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, where they will discuss possibly inking an arms deal that would supply the Russians with more weapons as they continue their attacks against Ukraine.

This disturbing turn of events is a stark contrast to just a few years ago when President Donald Trump diplomatically stymied Kim Jong Un and became the first Commander in Chief to ever step into North Korea.

In 2019, the NYT reported on the historic moment in which President Trump put his feet on North Korean soil and met with Kim Jong Un in person to negotiate a nuclear agreement.

Since Trump left office, Biden has cast a shadow of doom and gloom across the globe. Russia invaded Ukraine in early 2022, and the war has been ongoing, with Washington D.C. continuing to send billions of dollars to the war-torn country, bleeding American taxpayers dry.

In the wake of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, North Korea and China have emerged as dangerous players on the global chess board.

Rep. Eli Crane, R-Ariz., wrote on X that President Donald Trump deserved a Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the Abraham Accords while in office – just one example of the 45th president’s diplomatic foreign policy approach.

“No new wars AND unprecedented peace in the Middle East,” he pointed out.

Trump ally and conservative powerhouse Kari Lake added, “President Trump’s philosophy of peace through strength kept America safe for 4 years. It helped deescalate tensions with North Korea & Russia. Now, @JoeBiden’s weakness & continued provocation of Russia may have just driven Kim Jong-Un into an arms deal with Vladimir Putin.”

According to the NYT, Putin is reportedly seeking artillery shells and antitank missiles, while Kim Jong Un is seeking technology for satellites and, potentially, food supplies for North Korea.
