GettyTom Nichols claimed that North Korea have set up an obvious trap
Tom Nichols took to Twitter following a statement from Chung Eui-yong outside of the White House.
He wrote: “I’m sorry, do we not remember how awful that photo of Albright toasting Kim Jong Il was?
“She took a raft of s*** for that - and rightly so - and the new answer is ‘let’s do that again, this time with his weird freak of a kid and a sitting POTUS?’
"Has everyone lost their minds?”
“And then backtrack on everything, and leave us worse off.
“This trap is so obvious even Wile E. Coyote wouldn’t walk into it.”
Mr Nichols was referring to a meeting between former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and then North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in October 2000.
The meeting back then discussed a “full range of concerns on missiles" the ultimately failed to have a long-lasting impact on the actions of the hermit kingdom.
Madeleine Albright, who served under former US president Bill Clinton from 1997 to 2001, warned Donald Trump last year of the problems he faces in a meeting with Kim Jong-un.
She belittled him for prior remarks when he stated that he would be “honoured” to meet with Kim Jong-un “under the right circumstances”.
She explained: "A president doesn't go to a country without any preparation, and 'honoured' would definitely be the wrong way to discuss somebody who is keeping his people in poverty and starving and control.
"I think that part of the issue is that President Trump seems to believe that he can have just one-on-one relationships.
"And maybe that's possible in business, but that is not something that is possible as president of the United States.
"This is not a matter of charming, by saying you're 'honoured' and he's a 'smart cookie.’”
Following the announcement of potential diplomatic progress from the South Korean official in Washington DC, Mr Trump tweeted that a meeting between himself and Kim is “being planned”.
He wrote: “Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearisation with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze.
“Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time.

“Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!”
During the announcement, Chung Eui-yong revealed a number of details surrounding potential peace talks with the hermit kingdom, following a meeting in Pyongyang earlier this week.
He declared that the aggressive stance from the Republican firebrand was responsible for achieving a diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea.

Mr Chung added that Kim Jong-un is “committed” to denuclearisation and that he understands that joint military exercises between the US and South Korea “must continue”.
He went on: "Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile test.”
Until a full denuclearisation process has taken place, the South Korean official promised that “pressure will continue on North Korea” until it “turns words into actions”.
