Trump cancels North Korea visit

Trump cancels North Korea visit”

"Additionally, because of our much tougher Trading stance with China, I do not believe they are helping with the process of denuclearization as they once were (despite the UN Sanctions which are in place)", Trump continued in the series of Friday afternoon tweets.

And when the International Atomic Energy Agency released a report Monday arguing that North Korea is likely expanding its nuclear capacity, Trump voiced no public concern at the news.

Trump's tweets come as global inspectors have raised concerns about the north's continuing weapons program.

Trump partly blamed China for the stalled momentum with North Korea and suggested talks with Pyongyang could be on hold until after Washington resolved its trade dispute with Beijing. "I look forward to seeing him soon!" he added.

Also last month, The Washington Post reported that satellite images appeared to indicate North Korea's possible construction of ICBMs at the same facility the country produced its first long-range missiles, including the Hwasong-15, which may have the capability of hitting the U.S. East Coast.

President Trump made the remarks at a rally in West Virginia this week, just hours after the U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions on Russian shipping companies for violating North Korea-related UN Security Council resolutions. During the summit, the pair signed a vague joint statement in which the North agreed to denuclearize, but which left almost all details undefined.

Pompeo said the goal of the trip is to make further diplomatic progress toward the US objective.

However, only two days ago Mr Trump said China had been a "big help on North Korea".

Biegun fills a vacancy that has existed since the late February retirement of Joe Yun, an appointee of former President Barack Obama and a strong advocate for diplomacy with North Korea. "No longer - sleep well tonight!"

The decision marks a rare admission from Trump that North Korea's denuclearization is not going as well as hoped.

In the run-up to the summit both nations engaged in hard-nosed negotiation, with Trump publically calling off the meeting in an effort to push Kim to agree to nuclear concessions. In Singapore, the president reached a peace deal with himself: In exchange for tacitly tolerating a nuclear North Korea, Trump gave himself credit for a historic diplomatic triumph.

Trump had kept up the positive tone as recently as Tuesday at a campaign rally in West Virginia.

A Rocket has not been launched by North Korea in 9 months.
