Well, so much for that Nobel Peace Prize.

President Donald Trump will not meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month for what would have been a historic diplomatic summit, he announced in a letter to Kim released by the White House Thursday morning.
“I was very much looking forward to being there with you. Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” Trump wrote. “Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.”
Trump and Kim were scheduled to meet in Singapore on June 12, for what would have been the first face-to-face meeting between a US and North Korean leader.
Here is Trump’s “Dear Jong” letter:
I think this was the gist:
“Dear Jong, I thought we really had something. How could you play with my emotions like that? Dammit, I wanted that Nobel Prize thingy like the black guy got.”
So now Trump has unilaterally pulled out of a working Iran nuclear deal and faceplanted on a deal with North Korea.
I never read it but was the “Art of the Deal” just a book filled with Trump business fuck ups?
