Liberals are acting stunned by the move, but this is President Donald Trump displaying power. North Korea has been threatening the United States in recent days, and Trump made it very clear in his official statement that the U.S. will not tolerate the regime’s aggression or a bad deal.
In an explosive letter, Trump writes that the regime and world lost a “great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity,” adding that dictator Kim Jong Un has made it clear he isn’t interested in making a deal to help his people and country become more self-reliant.
“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 in the letter. “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 said Kim began displaying aggressive behavior following a recent meeting with China, which many believe is why North Korea has changed its tune on the summit.
The president also said he didn’t appreciate Kim making a slew of threats about the U.S., where the tiny dictator has promised nuclear war and said his regime could match the weaponry of the U.S.
Trump dropped an absolute nuke in his letter to Kim, reminding him that the U.S. has the strongest and most powerful nuclear arsenal in the world, and that North Korea would be wise not to temp his administration to take action.
“You talk about your nuclear capabilities but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used,” Trump wrote.

So what has changed in the last week?
Kim held at least two meetings with China late last week, where they undoubtedly discussed the U.S.-North Korea summit. China, who controls North Korea and is their main source for just about everything, doesn’t want to lose control over the regime.
If North Korea makes a deal with the U.S. to become more financially and economically dependent, that would be bad news for China. So, China swayed the regime into threatening the U.S., which they knew would result in Trump flexing his muscle.
North Korea threatening the U.S. is not going to end well for the regime. While they are trying to act tough on the world stage, the regime is on the verge of losing a deal of a lifetime and the opportunity to become free from China’s control.
Kim is trying to act tough, and Trump just called his bluff by canceling the summit and reminding him that the U.S. will not hesitate to rain down fire and fury on his tiny regime if they threaten the safety of America and its allies.
