An overwhelming majority of South Koreans have expressed support for both the April 27 Panmunjom Declaration for Peace signed by Moon and Kim and for the Trump-Kim summit. This support was made clear in June 13 local elections, in which Moon’s Democratic Party crushed the opposition in record-setting fashion. Despite this deep and widespread support for peace and reconciliation between the Koreas, many liberal politicians and pundits in the US appear to be trying to sabotage the peace process. Democrats have been completely ineffective at opposing Trump, but are now attempting to show some backbone by criticizing the summit with Kim, hawkishly complaining that Trump “gave away too much,” made “too many concessions.”
