Trump just set his own, uncrossable 'red line' — and North Korea crossed it instantly (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

"If the red line he drew today was 'North Korea cannot threaten the U.S. anymore,' that line was crossed within an hour of him making that statement," said John Delury, associate professor of Chinese studies at Seoul-based Yonsei University.

The episode draws parallels to President Barack Obama's own geopolitical red line.
