President Trump abruptly ended his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Thursday; saying he had to “walk” away from negotiations after Kim demanded the US remove all sanctions against his government before they begin the process of denuclearization.
The President spoke with reporters at a solo press conference after canceling his scheduled lunch with the North Korean leader; saying “Sometimes you have to walk.”
“It was about the sanctions,” Trump said. “Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that. They were willing to denuke a large portion of the areas that we wanted, but we couldn’t give up all of the sanctions for that.”
