  1. Make sure all your advisers are on the same page. Trump is not the first president to make this mistake but this summit seemed worse them most and was certainly the most public about it. 
  2. Define your goals then put everyone, including Trump, on the same message.  There should be no doubt among any of the participants what the United States wishes to achieve. 
  3. Hold down expectations.  When you start with the idea that this will be a path to a Nobel Prize, you have given the opposition a lot of leverage.  Trump also was touting that he would get an immediate agreement to implement a detailed, verifiable denuclearization plan, destroy the NK  existing nuclear material, freeze all production of fissionable material and give up its long-range missiles . It was an insane set of goals especially for an administration that can not even get to the table. 

Not being critical of the analysis.  I assume you direct it at someone who can and will 'do something about it' and come up with a pitcher of nice lemonade.  I don't think it's possible with the current players in the game on our 'side'.  November is coming.  If rationality is what you seek, that is where you'll find it.....or not.
