President Donald Trump announced Thursday morning that his highly anticipated meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been canceled. The president pointed to Kim’s “hostility” displayed in the past month as the reason why going forward with the summit would be “inappropriate.”

Earlier this month, Kim had threatened to pull out of the meeting with Trump set to be held in Singapore on June 12 and also abruptly canceled a meeting with South Korea.

 

“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.”

Leading up to Trump’s decision, North Korean officials had been threatening to not go through with the summit.

On Thursday, Vice Minister of the North Korean Foreign Ministry, Choe Son Hui, said that whether the U.S. “will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States,” according to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Choe also made a disparaging comment about Vice President Mike Pence who had said that North Korea asked to have the meeting.

“As a person involved in the U.S. affairs, I cannot suppress my surprise at such ignorant and stupid remarks gushing out from the mouth of the U.S. vice president,” Choe reportedly said.

According to Fox News, however, Trump officials said the threat of nuclear war, not the insult to Pence, was the reason for the summit pullout.

“I felt a wonderful dialogue was building between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you,” Trump wrote in his letter to Kim.

“If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.”

On Monday, Pence noted in an interview with Fox News that unlike former presidential administrations, Trump will not be “played” by North Korea.

“Truthfully, the Clinton administration, even the Bush administration got played in the past,” Pence said.  “It would be a great mistake for Kim Jong Un to think he could play Donald Trump.”

Pence also made clear that Trump was completely willing to walk away from the negotiating table if North Korea backs away from its promises.

“There’s no question,” he said.

When asked whether Trump was concerned about the possible embarrassment that could result if this process with North Korea fails after so much progress, Pence replied, “I don’t think President Truplease likeand share and leave a commentmp is thinking about public relations. He’s thinking about peace.”

Mike Pence Just Revealed Why He Ignored Kim Jong Un’s Sister at the Winter Olympics

Vice President Mike Pence sat only a few feet away from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s sister at the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics, but he ignored her and purposefully so, he revealed Wednesday. Kim Yo Jong, sister and confidant of the North Korean dictator, is a prominent figure in a brutal regime and is blacklisted by the U.S. Department of the Treasury for gross human rights violations.

The media, fascinated by Kim’s little sister, embarrassingly heaped praise on the woman.

Pence, though, ignored her to send a message.

His answer probably has several media outlets — which enthusiastically wrote about Kim’s smile, warmth, and beauty while comparing Kim to Ivanka Trump — feeling a little ashamed of their coverage.

“I didn’t avoid the dictator’s sister, but I did ignore her,” the vice president told Axios.

“I did not believe it was proper for the United States of America to give any attention in that forum to someone who is not merely the sister of the dictator but is the leader of the propaganda effort,” he added. 

Kim Yo Jong has served as the chief of North Korea’s propaganda department, helping to shape her brother’s cult of personality at a time when he was purging officials and their families by the hundreds.

“You have to remember this is a family who very recently ordered their brother be murdered using chemical weapons,” Pence said, referring to the horrific murder of Kim Jong Nam at an international airport in Malaysia last year.

The assassination, which was carried out with VX, a deadly nerve agent, is believed to have been orchestrated by the North Korean regime.

“This is a regime and a family that also ordered that their uncle be executed with artillery fire in the presence of ten thousand people,” he remarked, calling attention to the execution of Jang Song Thaek shortly after Kim Jong Un seized power. 

“This is evil the likes of which we have witnessed rarely in our time around the world,” the vice president told reporters,

“I wanted to send — by my silence — a very clear message, that the people of the United States know who we are dealing with and that we are going to continue to stand firmly and stand strong and with resolve with our allies until the regime in North Korea ceases to threaten our country and our allies with nuclear and ballistic missiles, and we will continued to hold them to account on their appalling record of abuse of human rights of their own people.”

Pence has said that the U.S. is open to talks with North Korea, but the maximum pressure campaign will continue until North Korea decides to pursue denuclearization.

As long as North Korea continues to threaten the U.S. and its allies, the U.S. and its international partners will continue to pile sanctions on the rogue regime, the implication appearing to be that Kim will either be brought to his senses or brought to his knees.

CNN Praises North Korea’s Despotic 1st Family – The Internet Takes CNN To Truth City

Their brother – the one little rocket man murdered with nerve gas — was not available for comment. If Stalin were alive today, our guess is that CNN would pick his side over Trump. They’re not even TRYING to hide it anymore.

Before we go further, we may want to remember just who we are talking about. This isn’t some Mugabe-level tinpot dictator. North Korea is a whole other level.

His country is the world’s largest prison camp, which an Auschwitz survior (and judge on the International Court of Justice) has described as ‘WORSE’ than Nazi Germany.

Not only did Kim Jong Un kill his brother with Nerve Gas in an Airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but he killed his Uncle, too. He’s also been known to shoot those who displease him with anti-aircraft guns.

Kim Jong-un had 11 musicians executed with anti-aircraft guns and orders aides to pick out sex slaves from North Korea’s schools, a defector has claimed.
…They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.
“And then after that military tanks moved in and they ran over the bits on the ground where the remains lay.”

THAT is who we are dealing with. And the Media(D) STILL loathe Trump (and in this case, his proxy, Pence) so bitterly that they cannot help but praise his sister… who may have run things briefly while he was ill some years ago.

Here’s what they said about his sister:

If “diplomatic dance” were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold.

With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the PyeongChang Games.

Riiiiight. And ‘maybe Mousellini had a great sense of humor — when you really got to know him’.

Nope. We’re not buying what you’re shoveling.

And neither were ‘the interwebz’.

He wasn’t done calling out the media in their fawning over dictators.

Brit Hume’s reaction was a lot like ours:

And rounding out the Stalin and Moussilini references…

Ouch.

Good thing they’re the ‘most trusted name in news’ or people might start to suspect there’s something a little bit ‘Pravda-ish’ about these guys.
