United States President Donald Trump announced on Thursday he was canceling his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June after a threatening statement was released by the Pyongyang regime earlier this week, according to the Guardian.
The White House released a formal letter written to Kim where Trump said he had been "very much looking forward" to the Singapore summit but, “Sadly, 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 said the meeting would not be taking place “for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world."
While the letter itself was regretful, it also contained a warning for Pyongyang about the vast size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
“You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive that I pray to God they will never have to be used,” Trump wrote.
“I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you,” he wrote in a letter that appeared to have been directly dictated by Trump, reflecting his speaking style, without corrections to syntax and grammar.
