Summit Shut-Down

 

President Trump has called off the June 12 summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. “Sadly,” the president explained in a letter on Thursday, “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 thanked Kim Jong Un “for the release of the hostages who are now home with their families.” The president left the door open “if you change your mind,” but concluded “This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.” Democrats were quick to lock and load and Nancy Pelosi ran right to Kim Jong-un’s corner.

The cancelation was a “good thing” for Kim, said the San Francisco Democrat. “He got global recognition and regard. He’s the big winner. And when he got this letter from the president saying, ‘OK, never mind,’ he must be having a giggle fit right now in North Korea.”

As Charles Schumer saw it, “many of us feared that the summit between POTUS and Kim Jong-Un would be a great show that produced nothing enduring. If a summit is to be reconstituted, the US must show strength & achieve a concrete, verifiable, enduring elimination of Kim Jong-Un’s nuclear capabilities.”

For Bob Menendez, “the art of diplomacy is a lot harder than the art of the deal,” and Virginia Democrat Gerry Conolly tweeted that the Nobel Prize for Trump “will have to wait.” And so on.
