Trump blames Cohen testimony for collapse of summit with Kim Jong

Trump blames Cohen testimony for collapse of summit with Kim Jong-un

Russian state television had a field day following President Donald Trump's summit with North Korea, hailing the meeting as a significant achievement for the Asian nation's leader Kim Jong Un and a failure for the U.S.

The much-touted second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un ended in both leaders unceremoniously walking away from the negotiation table.

Former U.N ambassador and current national security advisor John Bolton made the rounds to Sunday morning talk shows defending the president's actions in Vietnam.

In a tweet Sunday night, Trump criticized Democrats for holding the congressional hearing with his former lawyer Michael Cohen while he was in sensitive negotiations overseas.

Last week's meeting between Trump and Kim broke down over what the Americans said were North Korea's excessive demands for sanctions relief in exchange for a limited offer to shut down its ageing main nuclear complex in Yongbyon.

The breakdown of the second Trump-Kim summit - held February 27-28 in Hanoi, Vietnam - was a setback for the South, which is eager to advance inter-Korean economic projects and prevent a new conflict on the divided peninsula.

Under U.S. laws, Trump would need to go through an involved process to soften U.S. unilateral sanctions against the North, which would put South Korean companies doing business in the North under the threat of U.S. boycotts.

The South Korean diplomat met with reporters at Incheon International Airport and said he plans to meet with US special representative for North Korea Biegun and other members of the Trump administration.

"What he's trying to convey is that he's got a hard line to walk to negotiate with Kim Jong Un", Bolton said on "Fox News Sunday", arguing that Trump's statement did not necessarily mean that he believed what Kim was saying.

Waters has previously filed an inquiry for more information on Trump's finances to Deutsche Bank, which Democrats like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) seem to believe holds the key to bringing down Trump.

He said the issue was whether North Korea would accept what the president called "the big deal" - total denuclearization - or something less, "which was unacceptable to us".

But the president never specifically but the blame on Kim, which many lawmakers and Warmbier's family said the blame is to fall. They say Mr. Kim is desperate to win sanctions relief to try to resolve his country's moribund economy and improve public livelihoods.

Opponents of scrapping the drills warn that it could affect the combat readiness of the combined USA and South Korean forces and hand the North a strategic advantage on the divided peninsula.

"It is important for professional armies to train and maintain to a standard of readiness", the top US commander on the peninsula, Gen. Robert Abrams, and South Korea's Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Park Han-ki, said Sunday.

"Foreign leaders who are friends of ours lie to our faces, too", he said on Fox.

"That was my position long before I became President".

"I think that this was a spectacular failure but made all the worse by the president's obsequious comments when it came to the murder of an American citizen, Otto Warmbier", the Democratic lawmaker said.
