Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump caught the world by surprise late Thursday with his stunning announcement that he would accept North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un's invitation to meet sometime between now and May.

Assuming that the meeting actually happens, Trump will be the first sitting president to speak with -- either in person or by phone -- a North Korean leader.
Whether you like Trump or hate him, you can't conclude anything other than this is a massive, massive gamble -- the likes of which we haven't seen from an American president, diplomatically speaking, in a very long time.
In retrospect, it actually makes perfect sense that Trump is willing to roll the dice on such a massive stage. The move to meet with Kim is actually something very close to the Platonic ideal of Trumpism.
