Mark Steyn said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that President Donald Trump is operating his diplomacy in a "completely opposite" fashion to previous leaders.

"It's kind of an upside-down summit," Steyn said.

He said that in most cases, a large group from both nations in a bilateral meeting will convene and come "88 percent" to an agreement before the entourages leave and allow the two leaders to talk alone.

Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un will meet together with only translators first, then expand into a meeting between the two men and their aides.

"These third-world dictators always understand [the West's] priority is to be in a room sitting down [and to] get an agreement," Steyn said.

He remarked that most Western leaders will "do almost anything to have tea and coffee and cookies with a third world dictator."

Steyn said that is the way the similarly troublesome Iranians saw Europe and the Obama administration.
