Trump Blames Democrats for Failed Summit With Kim Jong Un

A day after the summit, he said in a speech that South Korea will negotiate with the US on ways to restart the frozen joint projects north of the border - a mountain resort and a factory park where South Korean firms used North Korean labor to produce goods.

"He's not desperate for a deal - not with North Korea, not with anybody if it's contrary to American national interests", Bolton told Fox News Sunday.

Hwang said Moon has been "playing with words" when the president has described himself as a "driver" or "mediator" with regard to engagement with North Korea.

As for Bolton, he flat-out refused to give an opinion on the matter that didn't align with the president.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will visit Russia, according to the press secretary of the Russian president who did not share dates or other details of the trip.

"He tells me that he didn't know about it, and I will take him at his word", Trump said at a news conference last week.

The summit's collapse followed the leaders' historic meeting in Singapore that produced only a vague commitment from Kim to work "toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula".

North Korea rebuffed the claims, saying it had only wanted some measures eased, and that its proposal to close "all the nuclear production facilities" at Yongbyon was its best and final offer. But his call for partial sanctions relief to induce nuclear disarmament steps from the North has caused disagreements with Washington, which sees economic pressure as its main leverage with Pyongyang.

"We should look into what and how the United States and North Korea see the current situation and we will come up with practical mediation measures", said Kang.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, summarized the summit as a "spectacular failure" made all the worse by Trump's comments on "murder of an American citizen, Otto Warmbier".

Schiff countered: "Of course the president did give up a great deal", arguing that Trump helped enhance Kim's prestige and noting that the drills with South Korea had riled Kim's regime. So I think that that's a stretch.

"I don't know one expert on North Korea that thinks anything could have happened to Otto Warmbier without Kim Jon Un knowing about it ahead of time, do you disagree?"

"That facility, while very big, it wasn't enough to do what we were doing", Trump said last week in Hanoi, referring to Yongbyon.

Pentagon officials say instead of the massive war games, the USA and South Korea will hold a series of small-scale exercises. -South Korea drills commonly known as Key Resolve and Foal Eagle. "That was my position long before I became President". These projects provided much-needed cash to North Korea before the South shut them down during past periods of tensions.

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.
