First Trump blinks and eases off on trade sanctions with China.
Now Trump blinks again and cancels the talks with North Korea.
To try and save face he brags about the massive nuclear arsenal he thinks he has control of.

-------

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is canceling the planned June 12 summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" in a recent statement from North Korea.

Trump says in a letter to Kim released Thursday by the White House that based on the statement, he felt it was "inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting."

The president says the North Koreans talk about their nuclear capabilities, "but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used."

It's true, he cancelled the planned meeting, and he bragged about the USA's destructive power to deter N Korea from retaliating.

But it takes two to meet, and it also takes two to ruin such an opportunity. Was Kim Jong-un sincere? Was he willing to give up future plans for nuclear weapons acquisition?

To me it seems Mr Moon in Seoul is the biggest loser in this game. He stands now between an anvil and a hard rock.

It's so unfair for Trump to blame China! Trump, as always, pointed his finger at President Xi, accusing him of changing Kim's attitude after Kim met Xi in China!  China's stand has always been to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula!  Trump's lies don't stand up to scrutiny.  He should look in his own backyard for the reason; Bolton's and Pence's comments about the Libya model sicken the North Koreans, plus Trump's insistence that Kim gives up all his nuclear weapons immediately, while the US continue to keep nuclear weapons in the South!!  Who wants to go into negotiation with a bully like Trump?  Kim is no fool!

Just one day after the DPRK demolished its nuclear test site, the US pulled out of the talk.

This is a prime example of the US turning into a rogue nation, a label it arbitrarily pinned on other countries.

South Korea Responds To Trump's Sudden Cancellation Of Kim Jong Un Summit
Willa Frej -- HuffPost -- May 24, 2018

South Korea was at a loss for words Thursday after President Donald Trump’s announcement that he was scrapping next month’s planned nuclear summit with North Korea.

“We are attempting to make sense of what, precisely, President Trump means,” South Korean presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said in a statement.

Well don't feel left out. The people of the world have been attempting to make sense of what Trump has said since he took office.
