Kim returns home after failed nuclear diplomacy with Trump

John Bolton

Baier, who was in Hanoi, Vietnam for Trump's summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, was pushing back on the USA president's claim in a tweet that Michael Cohen's testimony before Congress last week could have contributed to the failure of the summit.

But the president never specifically but the blame on Kim, which many lawmakers and Warmbier's family said the blame is to fall.

Last week's meeting between Trump and Kim in Vietnam 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 aging main nuclear complex in Yongbyon.

Hwang said Monday the exercises were canceled through a single phone call between military chiefs, calling the move the "worst" decision for national security; North Korea still retains nuclear weapons, as well as conventional weapons that can target the South, he added.

"Trump attacked the Democrats" decision to publicly interview Michael Cohen, his former lawyer and operative, on the same day as a meeting between Trump and Kim in Hanoi last week. At the same time in Washington, Cohen was testifying before a congressional committee, labelling the United States president a "racist" and "conman".

'I tried to watch as much as I could, ' Trump said.

"And I think the best thing North Korea could do right now would be to come up with a full explanation of exactly what happened to him".

The length and structure of the deal was important to the Rockies. "I wouldn't make this decision if I didn't believe that". Next year's would-be biggest free agent is getting signed before Bryce Harper .

Trump tweeted about the testimony's apparent negative fallout just hours after National Security Adviser John Bolton hailed the truncated talks in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Bolton also appeared on CNN's State of the Union, where he defended Trump who said he took Kim "at his word" when the North Korean leader claimed he knew nothing about the alleged torture of imprisoned US student Otto Warmbier.

Moon, who has adopted a dovish approach to Pyongyang and brokered the US-North Korea talks process, urged his officials to find out what exactly had gone awry at the high-stakes meeting, and predicted a deal would ultimately be reached. He also told CBS's Face the Nation, "The president held firm to his view".

The House Oversight Committee, chaired by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.), had gone through multiple dates for its highly anticipated hearing with Cohen, who has been called to appear before several congressional panels and is scheduled to go to prison in May.

Also Sunday, Trump says the reason he canceled large-scale springtime military drills with South Korea is to save "hundreds of millions of dollars" for which the U.S.is never reimbursed.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, however, disputed the USA account, saying Pyongyang offered to dismantle all "nuclear production facilities in the Yongbyon area" in exchange for partial sanctions relief. "But I don't believe for one second that's why the talks collapsed". -South Korea joint exercises as aggressive provocation and rehearsals for war.
