Among the greatest foreign policy challenges President Donald Trump has faced thus far involve the nuclear aspirations of North Korea and Iran. The former top White House non-proliferation advisor to President Obama considers whether behind the twitterstorms aimed at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and threats of withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal, there is a strategy to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and preserve the peace.
