In the intervening 68 years Trump's predecessors and the "International Community" with its "rules based order" have been happy to leave an unfinished war between belligerents open on their books. This lead to Korea's development of defensive nuclear weapons under Trump's immediate predecessors Bush II and Hussein Bahamas.
This historic move towards peace followed a contentious G7 summit where after President Trump left in respectful disagreement, members of the "rules based order" club attempted to falsify President Trump's support for a join statement on behalf of their "rules based" club.

Substantial noise is being made this weekend over a game of Naval footsie between US and Chinese warships in the South China Sea (archived). The cause for the drama is the fact that US warships can no longer navigate the South China Sea on the strength of the US Navy's armament, in this young century their presence in the South China Sea has been reduced to a courtesy extended to the US ships by Chinese Armed Forces.
A member of the US embassy staff in China has reported to have suffered a "mild brain injury" after experiencing a abnormal sound.

Peter Dalglish, a Canadian pantsuit "humanitarian" with ties to several UN "aid" programs (archived), was arrested by police in Nepal for buggering two boys aged 12 and 14 (archived).

Chinese imports of US sorghum began only five years ago and China swiftly began purchasing nearly all US exportable sorghum as livestock fodder. These boats are in the unfortunate position of requiring an entirely new market for their product while at the same time burning precious fuel in the Pacific.
Reports are emerging that Chinese customs agents are actively refusing US garbage exports entrance to the country (archived). With China buying Brasilero soy to the exclusion of US beans, enforcement of the ban on garbage imports leaves even less goods to justify US to China cargo service.
