House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi unloaded on the President during her weekly press briefing Thursday, telling reporters Kim Jong Un was “the big winner” after Trump canceled the scheduled meeting between the two leaders.
The former Speaker of the House was answering questions from journalists when she slammed the Commander-in-Chief’s abrupt decision to scrap the summit, saying he “wasn’t prepared” for his high-stakes discussion with Kim Jong Un.
“I think it’s a good thing for Kim Jong Un,” Pelosi said. “They were on par with each other. He got global recognition and regard. He’s the big winner.”
“When he got this letter from the president saying ‘OK, never mind’ — he must be having a giggle fit right there in North Korea,” she added. “This takes preparation. This takes knowledge. This takes judgment, and clearly this takes preparation, which the president didn’t make.”

NOT HAPPENING: Trump CANCELS North Korean Summit, Blames Kim’s ‘Hostility’
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.
