5. If it works, I'm willing to give him credit

North Korea is the only "I inherited a mess!" statement that Trump makes that I can agree with. We've tried stern diplomacy. We've tried bribery. We've tried soft diplomacy.

If we are able to disarm N Korea or to topple the Kim dynasty on his watch, I'm fully prepared to give him credit for it. I don't care if it's China that does the deed or not, this may be a case where people being worried that the president of the US is a senile madman works in our favor.

There are, of course, alternative outcomes from his behavior that result in millions of deaths, and I think he would be in line for the full blame there as well.
