BREAKING NEW: Trump cancels planned summit with North Korea

Trump said it was “inappropriate” to have a summit at this time amid heightened tensions with North Korea.

The US President said it was a “missed opportunity” and a “truly sad moment in history”.

And he warned North Korea of his “massive and powerful” nuclear arsenal.

“I was very much looking forward to being there with you,” Trump said in the letter.

“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.”

North Korea had previously furiously attacked the US, calling vice-president Mike Pence stupid and raging over the deployment of B-52 nuclear bombers near the Korean Peninsula.
