No deal between President and Kim Jong Un

News

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have failed to reach a de-nuclearization agreement at their second summit in Hanoi, Vietnam. The President said North Korea wanted him to lift U.S. sanctions on the country in exchange for de-nuclearization. Mr. Trump was not willing to do that but he said talks between the nations will continue.

“You always have to be prepared to walk. I could have signed an agreement today and then you’d say what a terrible deal, what a terrible thing he did. You have to be prepared to walk and there was a potential we could have signed something today. I could have signed something today, we had papers ready to be signed but it wasn’t appropriate. I want to do it right. I’d much rather do it right than fast,” said President Trump.

President Trump said Kim Jong Un has promised not to resume nuclear and missile test, in spite of not reaching an agreement.
