President Trump says White House is pulling out of North Korea summit scheduled to take place June 12 in Singapore.
“Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump said in a letter to Kim Jong Un. FOX NEWS reports.
North Korean officials also called Vice President Mike Pence a “political dummy” and threatened to quit the summit after Pence suggested that North Korea could end up like Libya if it refused to make a deal and denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
“I want to thank you for the release of the hostages who are now home with their families,” Trump said. “That was a beautiful gesture and was very much appreciated.”
He also ridiculed Kim’s nuclear arsenal, reminding North Korea that the United States had a much greater force.
“You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used,” Trump wrote.
RWT Reported Earlier this month, President Donald Trump laid out a stark choice for North Korea’s Kim Jong Un ahead of their planned summit next month: Abandon nuclear weapons and be rewarded with “protections,” or risk being overthrown and possible death if the arsenal remains.
“Failure to make a deal could have grave consequences. The Libyan model isn’t the model we have at all. In Libya we decimated that country. There was no deal to keep Gadhafi. I’m Willing to do a lot to provide security guarantees to Kim. The best thing he could do is make a deal.” ~ President Donald Trump
“This exercise targeting us, which is being carried out across South Korea, is a flagrant challenge to the Panmunjom Declaration and an intentional military provocation running counter to the positive political development on the Korean Peninsula,” KCNA said, according to Yonhap News. “The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities.” RWT Intel report
The U.S. intends to maintain military pressure on North Korea to ensure America engages the Kim Jong-un regime from a “position of strength” to achieve significant steps towards the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, a top Pentagon official indicated on Tuesday. RWT News
