Anti-Trump media cheers ‘no peace’ with North Korea (Video)

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou take a quick look at the Vietnam summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

No joint agreement was reached between the two countries after Kim insisted all US sanctions be lifted on his country, while White House National Security Adviser, John Bolton played the role of last-minute spoiler, influencing President Trump’s negotiations so as to produce an ultimate failure to agree.

Trump said Kim offered to take some steps toward dismantling his nuclear arsenal but not enough to warrant ending sanctions against North Korea.

“Sometimes you have to walk,” US President Trump said during a press conference following the conclusion of the summit, which broke up earlier than planned. “This was just one of those times.”

In his first Twitter comment on his relationship with North Korea since senior officials in Kim Jong Un’s government contradicted Trump’s narrative of why he decided to walk away without a deal on Thursday, President Trump appeared to shrug off a warning that Kim may have “lost the will” to continue negotiating and instead insisted that the negotiations were “very substantive” and that the relationship between the two countries remained “very good.”

Offering a degree of validation to North Korean officials’ insistence that Kim’s staked out a “reasonable” position during the talks – and preempting any speculation that there might have been a miscommunication on par with Trump’s summit with President Xi in Buenos Aires – Trump said “we know what they want and they know what we must have.”

The tweet followed a statement from Beijing urging the partial rollback of some of the UN sanctions against North Korea, as well as a BBG report warning that Kim could face pressure to restart his belligerent missile tests if the country’s sanctions-inspired economic recession worsens
