President Donald J. Trump announced his decision to cancel the June 12 summit with Kim Jong-un in a letter to the North Korean dictator. A copy of the letter was released by the White House press office on Thursday.
“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 in the letter.
North Korean officials called Vice President Mike Pence a “political dummy” and threatened to quit the summit after Pence suggested that North Korea could end up like Libya if it refused to make a deal and denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
The president expressed disappointment that the “wonderful dialogue” that was building between the two leaders was disintegrating but thanked Kim for releasing the hostages.
