We've talked about this subject in the past and came to the following conclusions for a preemptive strike on NK.

1. Seoul would be devastated and perhaps Tokyo nuked.

2. A flood of North Koreans would flee to China.

Considering how vested the US is in trade with China and given what a nuclear strike would do to the stock market I think we would have to factor another Great Depression in as well.

There would be no winners, only losers.

Whether Trump has the wherewithal to understand this is an open question.
