TOKYO-- U.S. President Donald Trump is likely to make a "bad deal" with North Korea that doesn't involve the isolated nation completely dismantling its nuclear program, American experts warned Friday.

"Trump's bar for a good deal may not be complete verifiable irreversible denuclearization, but something he can argue he did better than his predecessors," Victor Cha, senior adviser and Korea chair at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies, said at a CSIS/Nikkei symposium in Tokyo.
