President Trump Responds To North Korea’s Threats To Cancel The Upcoming Meeting…

North Korea is currently threatening to cancel the upcoming meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un. It’s supposed to take place in Singapore on June 12th. However, North Korea’s playing mind games. It’s suddenly decided that it’s “no longer interested” in “one-sided” negotiations.

“We are no longer interested in a negotiation that will be all about driving us into a corner and making a one-sided demand for us to give up our nukes and this would force us to reconsider whether we would accept the North Korea-U.S. summit meeting,” first vice foreign minister, Kim Kye Gwan, said in a statement.

Keep in mind that Washington hasn’t heard anything directly from officials in Pyongyang.

President Trump has responded…kinda. Reporters asked him about it, and he simply said we’ll see.

“We haven’t seen anything, we haven’t heard anything. We will see what happens,” Trump said.

I like that response. It’s just enough. No begging. That’s what North Korea wants.

Sarah Sanders also responded to the reports.

“Look, as the president has said time and time again, we’re ready to meet and if it happens, that’s great. And if it doesn’t we’ll see what happens,” she said. “We’re still hopeful that the meeting will take place and we’ll continue down that path. But at the same time, we’ve been prepared that these could be tough negotiations.”

“The president is ready if the meeting takes place,” she added. “And if it doesn’t, we’ll continue the ‘maximum pressure’ campaign that’s been ongoing.”

PERFECT plan.

This is a trial balloon. North Korea is testing the waters, so it’s super important that the White House sticks with the “maximum pressure” campaign and tough talk. No backing down.
