President Trump called-off his historic face-to-face meeting with Kim Jong Un Thursday morning; writing an official letter to the North Korean leader that slammed his “tremendous anger” and “open hostility” towards the United States.
The Commander-in-Chief canceled the meeting scheduled for June 12th in Singapore just days after Kim called South Korea “incompetent” and accused the United States of “ruining” the prospect of peace on the Korean peninsula.
“I was very much looking forward to being there with you. 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 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.”
The President’s announcement comes just hours after the Hermit Kingdom “destroyed” its nuclear testing facility.

CRISIS IN KOREA: Kim AIMS at ‘Repugnant’ John Bolton Ahead of Summit
North Korean authorities set their sights directly on National Security Advisor John Bolton Wednesday, saying they do not “hide their feelings of repugnance” towards the senior Trump aide while threatening to scuttle future talks with American officials.
North Korea’s Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan slammed the NSA while speaking with the state-run news agency this week; saying the communist regime remembers Bolton’s remarks from 2003 labeling Kim Jong Un’s father a “tyrannical dictator.”
“We do not hide our feelings of repugnance towards him,” said Kim.
The Foreign Minister went on to warn American officials that his country refuses to follow the “miserable fate” of Libya, whose leader Muammar Gaddafi was violently overthrown after voluntarily abandoning his nuclear weapons program.
“This is not an expression of intention to address the issue through dialogue. It is essentially a manifestation of awfully sinister moves to impose on our dignified state the destiny of Libya or Iraq which had [sic] been collapsed due to yielding the whole of their countries to big powers,” added Kim.
CRISIS IN KOREA: Kim Jong Un Threatens to CANCEL Trump Summit
North Korean officials suddenly threatened to cancel their high-stakes summit with President Trump Tuesday, saying the United States’ recent joint military drill with South Korea was a “rehearsal for invasion” of the Hermit Kingdom.
According to the Daily Mail, a spokesperson for the communist regime slammed the Trump administration through the state-run news agency; saying the US will have to take “careful deliberations” after the “provocative military ruckus.”
“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,” the statement said.
The direct threat comes just days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo returned from Pyongyang with three American prisoners; setting the stage for the historic summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un on June 12th in Singapore.
