Trump Rushed to Cancel Summit Before North Korea Did

“Early Thursday morning, after a flurry of calls with a handful of senior advisers, an angry President Donald Trump personally dictated the three-paragraph letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that cancelled the scheduled summit between their two nations,” NBC News reports.

“It had been less than 12 hours since Trump and his team began grappling intensely with the prospects for shelving what would have been an historic meeting between the two heads of state.”

“But the president, fearing the North Koreans might beat him to the punch, wanted to be the one to cancel first.”
