Well, looks like a major setback. Hopefully they can get things back on track, assuming that NK was ever serious and not up to their usual shenanigans.

Trump cancels Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un


President Donald Trump has canceled his historic summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month. The meeting, which would have marked the first face-to-face encounter between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader, was set for June 12.


Trump's letter:

Yea, I think it won't take long 'till Mr. Kim realize that there's no way other than peace with the SK and the US.

Atleast we got hostages back and Kim's nuclear bases destroyed.

Btw, someone beat you by a few seconds.

Of course he did! Who didn't see that coming? Now, what are they going do with all those commemorative coins?

Well, he did more in 2 years than the previous administration did in 8.

I'd suggest he celebrate.

Lol. I thought that was very well worded. I look forward to Kim's response. Trump isn't gonna take any sh!t in these negotiations and I respect that. The time for f#ckery and circle jerking is over.

Go Trump, make them have it.

Nuclear bases destroyed, I think that was an illusion, Lil Kim gave nothing he wanted to keep away.

The gist is, you can't act like a spoiled brat when the deep pockets has agreed to meet with you.

My hope is that this is a public gesture that finalizes actual diplomacy that is occuring.

I posted the linky in the other thread, but here's the start of this:



Earlier on Thursday, North Korea repeated a threat to pull out of the unprecedented summit with Trump next month and warned it was prepared for a nuclear showdown with Washington if necessary.

I'm hoping this is only a temporary setback. But either way, Trump is making a serious attempt to bring about peace in Korea. That's a big deal.

If you had followed the rhetoric out of NK, you'd have seen the original overtures of ceasing nuclear development, the releasing of the three U.S. citizens, etc.. Then that rhetoric started changing back to the old antagonistic comments. All the reconciliation meme disappeared.

My suspicion, and what do I know(?), is that NK's intent was to smuggle up to SK and get them to lean in towards NK rather than the U.S.. With Seoul 30 Miles from the DMZ, and constantly targeted by NK's artillery, they have as much or more to loses than NK. A powerful motivation to come up with an accord/solution.

I'm betting fat boy is playing on that....or at least an 'option'. JMO, though.

so you agree the coins and the peace prize talks were a wee bit premature?

This is the bad statement by N Korea.


On Thursday, Vice Minister of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, Choe Son Hui, also said that whether the U.S. "will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States," according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.

They will still mark the event because it's going through whether you like it or not.

Your hatred for peace makes my stomach turn.

✌ I bet you find that symbol derogatory for one reason or another....
