North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN is in Beijing. This at the start of a four-day visit in what's likely an effort to coordinate with his only major ally of a second summit with President Trump.

And if you really care about them as they Democrats and many news media claiming to you would deter them from taking his perilous check in the first place.
