How do the results of the US midterm elections, which ended with the victory of the Republican Senate Mercury and the Democratic Chamber of Deputies, affect the policy of the Trump government on the Korean peninsula?
Most experts analyze that the election results are not a major shift to the Trump government's policy on the Korean peninsula. First, US foreign policy is led by the president and the administration, and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the Military Committee play an important role. The Democratic House of Representatives has limited influence over foreign policy in the Senate, with Republican rule maintained.
It seems that President Donald Trump should focus his efforts on the re-election campaign after the "early defeat" of the midterm elections. Unlike the midterm elections, the evaluation of foreign policy is important in the presidential election. Trump, who has withdrawn from the Obama administration's diplomatic achievements and resumed full economic and financial sanctions on Iran, is a key card for diplomatic achievements to compensate him. Professor Lee Hye-jung, an American politician, said: "US experts and the media continue to criticize President Trump for violating the nuclear agreement, although Iran has not violated the nuclear agreement and continues to compare the negotiations "We need to show our achievements in diplomacy beyond the Iranian nuclear agreement in nuclear negotiations." The Trump government must resume talks on high-level talks between North Korea and the US, resume the momentum for dialogue and advance in the second round of talks at the summit next year.
The Democratic Party, which has returned to the majority in the House of Representatives in eight years, is critical of Trump's nuclear talks. However, the likelihood that Democrats will either completely dismantle North Korean nuclear negotiations or return to active support is low. The Democratic Party only raises questions about Trump's negotiation method and Kim Jong-un's intention to denuclearize the secretary of state of North Korea, but does not offer a clear alternative to the Democratic Party for denuclearization. The most likely scenario is for Democrats to hear a frequent hearing in the House of Representatives and government officials to testify about the talks between North Korea and the US and request the submission of relevant documents and to slow down. However, the Democratic Party seems to be balancing it, as it does not seem to interfere with the very diplomacy of denuclearization. "I think it's good to have a conversation with North Korea," Elliott Engle, a New York Democrat, said in a telephone interview. However, they do not oppose negotiations with North Korea, saying, "They should not be deceived because they think they will take steps for major changes."
In US politics, the policy of the Korean peninsula has changed rapidly since the midterm election. The North Korean-US Geneva Accord in 1994, which the Democratic Party of the Democratic Party adopted as the first North Korean nuclear crisis, was hit by the Republican Party in mid-term elections that year. George W. Bush, the Republican executive who led North Korea to the axis of evil, defeated the midterm elections in 2006 and turned to North Korea and discussed the declaration of the end of the Korean peninsula and the completion of a peace treaty. Will the precedent be repeated this time? "After the defeat in the presidential election, the Clinton administration moved forward in the North Korean-based transport process, and the Bush administration's change to North Korea was aggravated not only by defeat in midterm elections but also by criticism deterioration of the situation in Iraq. " "The Trump administration is a very exceptional government that does not go through the existing rules of US policy, so it is not correct to judge that the policy of the Korean Peninsula will change based on the previous case."
