Trump will not meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month, which he announced in a letter to Kim released by the White House Thursday morning because cowardice. The letter from the President to Chairman Kim Jong Un: “It is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.” VP Pence, provided cover for Trump by completely pissing off North Korea with stupid statements causing a North Korean vice minister of foreign affairs to call Pence a “political dummy.” Which, for some reason, infuriated the White House. The White House was developing a response to the rhetoric on Thursday morning because it takes them a long time to come up with a retort to such a true statement from Pyongyang.
Trump and his minions are reportedly looking to have additional high level talks to get assurances from Kim for complete denuclearization before the summit went ahead. Yeah, not going to happen. Hours later, a North Korean official lashed out at Pence and said Pyongyang is ready for a nuclear showdown if dialogue with the United States fails, demonstrating how inept Trump and his State Department are at diplomacy. Choe Son Hui, a vice-minister in the North Korean Foreign Ministry, said, “Whether the US will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States.” Choe was responding to comments by Pence made Monday during a Fox News interview that she deemed “unbridled and impudent.”
