Trump cancels summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un
US President Donald Trump has called off his planned summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
The unprecedented summit was scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore, for what would have been the first meeting between an American and North Korean leader.
The summit’s cancellation is a major blow to what Trump supporters hoped would have been the biggest diplomatic achievement of his presidency.
The White House was caught off-guard when North Korea condemned the latest US-South Korean military drills, suspended North-South talks, and threatened to cancel the Trump-Kim summit.
