President Trump agreeing to meet the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un pleasantly surprised the markets on Thursday. Just a couple of months ago, the two leaders were in in a rather childish spat over whose nuclear button was bigger and hurled insults at each other, at every opportunity. Now, they are about to make history, not only with a possible reconciliation but also because this would be the first-ever meeting between a U.S. president and a North Korean leader. Investors are hopeful that there will finally be a diplomatic breakthrough.
