Trump, Kim summit collapses over sanctions impasse

See Trump meet Kim Jong Un in second historic summit

There were plenty of signs before they left their respective capital cities that a final deal was not possible.

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy of CT said on Twitter that talking is never a bad idea and "If outcome is that both missile test moratorium and our sanctions continue, and we keep dialogue going, that's not a bad outcome".

But Republican Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota said what Trump says in public about Kim might be different from what he privately feels. "But I really don't believe he knew about it".

"There's a warmth that we have and I hope that stays", he added.

He said it is "the biggest denuclearization measure that we can take" given the current status of mutual confidence between the two countries.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she thought there was "something wrong" with Trump choosing to believe "thugs" like Putin and Kim over the United States intelligence community.

Longstanding U.S. policy has insisted that U.S. sanctions on North Korea would not be lifted until that country committed to, if not concluded, complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization.

On the same call, fellow CSIS analyst Victor Cha chalked up the failure to bad staff work.

He also visited the victims of hooch tragedy undergoing treatment at the Civil Hospital here and inquired about their health. He said police are pursuing other people believed to be connected to the racket as part of an ongoing investigation.

The breakdown denied Trump a much-needed triumph amid growing political turmoil back home and the path forward now appears uncertain.

Trump said at the news conference in Hanoi that the USA brought up other threats it knows about during negotiations, saying, "I think they were surprised we knew". "That's what we were pursuing in 2017", Brooks said. "Our teams have gotten to know each other better".

"I think the president is very gullible in this regard". There was still concern in Washington, however, about what the summit's collapse would mean for future nuclear diplomacy with North Korea.

"Where do we go from here?" However, he said after the summit was cut short, "Sometimes you have to walk". "The good news is it's not so catastrophic".

"The developments over the past 48 hours highlight in stark fashion the inherent weaknesses of President Trump's preference for summit diplomacy - worldwide media spectacles that have failed to achieve substantial progress on the key issues, especially denuclearization", said Paul Haenle, the director of the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy. "He passed away just days after his return", the president said in the address.

Ri said Pyongyang's position won't change even if USA seeks further talks. Green observed last week in a piece for Elephants in the Room, there were worrying indications that the president was trying to reset the parameters for success such that he could accept a deal that the Trump of January 2018 would have denounced as unacceptable.

The US presented Mr Kim with evidence of additional secret nuclear sites, surprising the North Koreans, according to Mr Trump.

The quickfire exchange between Mr Kim, Mr Trump and reporters, yielded more noteworthy moments.

They pointed to his acceptance of President Vladimir Putin's 2018 insistence that Russian Federation did not meddle in the United States election, and Trump refusing to accept Central Intelligence Agency conclusions that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
