President Trump canceled a much anticipated sit-down talk with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un on Thursday. The historic meeting was set for June 12 in the southeast Asia country of Singapore.
The planned summit was a huge development in what had been escalating tensions between the U.S. and North Korea’s totalitarian leadership. But new statements by Kim Jong-Un had already put the meeting in doubt, NBC News reported
"I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting," Trump wrote in a letter to the dictator, pointing to Kim Jong-Un’s recent "tremendous anger and open hostility."
The president added a stern warning, saying, “You talk about you nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never be used."
GOP leadership praised Trump’s move. Earlier on Thursday, North Korea bashed Vice President Mike Pence, according to The Straits Times.
Hours before Trump’s cancelation, a CNN crew was invited to witness the destruction of three tunnels that part of a North Korean nuclear test site, but even they seemed to have their doubts about whether the demolition was as extensive as it was purported to be.
