Trump cancels June summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un

Post by Lurker on Thu May 24, 2018 4:14 pm

Failing Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon on Thursday canceled the planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which was set to take place June 12 in Singapore.

In a letter addressed to Kim and released by the White House, Trump blamed the cancellation on the "tremendous anger and open hostility" in a recent statement by the North Koreans.

"I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting," he wrote.

"Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place. You talk about you nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never be used," the president added.

The president appeared to be referring to a statement by North Korea on Thursday that warned of a "nuclear-to-nuclear showdown" with the United States.

The North Koreans were reacting to comments by Vice President Mike Pence this week suggesting that North Korea could face a fate similar to that of Libya, where the leader, Muammar Qaddafi, was deposed and killed and the country fell into chaos. North Korea called the vice president a "political dummy" for the remark.

The announcement of the cancellation also came shortly after North Korea was said to have destroyed a nuclear test site.

A U.S. intelligence official told NBC News that was a potentially important gesture on North Korea's part, but it also may be reversible.

Earlier this week, Trump suggested there was a "substantial chance" that summit wouldn't happen in June. "If it doesn't happen, maybe it will happen later," Trump said in Oval Office remarks on Tuesday alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

North Korea also canceled high-level talks with South Korea earlier this month.

On Capitol Hill, Republicans embraced Trump's decision to pull out.

"Kim Jun Un, in the words of a wise man 'Congratulations, you just played yourself'. Withdrawing from talks with #NKorea is 100% the right decision. #KJU doesn’t want a deal. He has deliberately sabotaged the talks over the last two weeks & was setting us up to take the blame," Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tweeted.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said, "The North Korean regime has long given ample reason to question its commitment to stability. We must continue to work with our allies toward a peaceful resolution, but that will require a much greater degree of seriousness from the Kim regime."

He added, "At the same time, Congress has provided significant tools to hold North Korea accountable, and it is important that the United States not relent in this maximum pressure campaign."

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said, "North Korea has a long history of demanding concessions merely to negotiate. While past administrations of both parties have fallen for this ruse, I commend the president for seeing through Kim Jong Un's fraud."

Trump's new banana republic coin to replace the North Korea summit coin:

Trump failure no 1: failed at repealing Obamacare.
Trump failure no. 2: failed at Infrastructure.
Trump failure no. 3: nuclear weapons in Iran.
Trump failure no. 4: nuclear weapons in North Korea.

Trump only success: Rob the poor and give to the rich.

Phew...one look at the record and you see what he's all about.

Blowing the deal with Iran is like closing the barn door after the horses escaped. The only one who didn't get what he wanted was the US. Everyone else is fine.

Moving the embassy to Jerusalem is, again, is just show. The only effective thing it does is perpetuate hostilities in the middle east, and remove the US as a neutral. Remember...perpetual war.

Well, it showed up how many countries wanted to do buisness with a nation that arms terrorists and seeks to wipe out the Jews

I would say that it was a good thing, not to deal with a country, whilst it continues down such a path

It has to stop arming terrorists, looking to bring the entire middle East into conflict and stop hating the Jews

Quite simple really

So moving an embassy is now wrong because again some Arabs, simpe cannot live alongside Jews in peace?

Do you always bow down to bad tempered adults acting like children, not getting their way?

That is what you should be questioning
