2 - If Leader Kim is playing Pres Trump, how long will it be before Pres Trump realizes that those love letters are merely a pawn in the chess game?

The pawns in this "chess game" are the American people who get most of their news from TV or the usual reactive "fast-news" channels.
Yes, Chairman Kim is playing Trump AND Trump is playing Dear Leader Kim.
It worked like this: Chairman Kim was testing nuclear delivery missiles and it caused all kinds of ruckus in the media and great deal of discomfort to Dear Leader Trump who proceeded to issue empty threats and call Chairman Kim names. Chairman Kim, who actually wrote a book on Unpresidential Trump and knows all his "tells" and tricks, responded in kind "like nobody has ever seen before". Trump asked "his generals" if he could do something about Kim, and they said not really unless he wants massive destruction, bigger than what he did to Atlantic City and the state of New Jersey, and of course a lot bloodier, but more importantly that it would be televised and he will be held responsible and nobody will ever like him anymore, even his base, Ivanka and Barron. They told him to take President Obama's advice and "don't do stupid s--t." He didn't like it but couldn't take a chance on not being liked by everybody.
So, one by one, he slowly fired or got rid of "his generals" and as the last resort started calling Chairman Kim a "rocket man" to which Chairman Kim responded with a deft "Dotard" which has its own meaning but also sounded like "Do-nal-d-re-tar-d" which was really bad, because Donald had nowhere to go to ratchet it up. He met his match in the insults and threats theater, so he needed a change of plans - as usual, he came up with an attempted bribe.
Ivanka, sister of Kim and new soft-line President of South Korea (as opposed to former and impeached hard-line President of the Seoul) arranged a Trump-Kim meeting during Seoul winter Olympics.
Two leaders of the world finally met in Singapore and Trump couldn't bribe Kim with "big beautiful" Trump Towers all over North Korea because Kim had already had plans for "amazing" Kim Towers. So Trump told Kim that he doesn't want any trouble and that his new dear friend and brother Kim can continue developing and building nukes if only he stops testing them and irritate the media, which might cause Trump to do something stupid. Kim said it was acceptable, but Trump has to do something for him - start and continue a trade war with China which will make Premier Xi realize the value of North Korea in the New Brave World of Trump Disfunction. Trump said, sure, I think I love you, I had the same idea.
Then Kim said, that's not all, you will also need to start a trade war with Japan, but not immediately - only when I will send you a "beautiful letter" with the enclosed Queen of Diamonds card. Trump said it was great and let's meet again - Kim said sure, I know you've never been to Vietnam, let's have a dinner there?
And here we are... what's the North Korean word for "kabuki"?
