President Trump tweeted Friday that he has reversed his administration’s decision to slap new sanctions on North Korea, with his press secretary explaining that the president “likes” leader Kim Jong Un and doesn’t think they’re necessary.
Satellite images suggest that North Korea could be preparing to launch a missile or space rocket in the near future, analysts said Friday, signaling a potential blow to US-North Korea relations.
The decision announced by both countries Sunday came after President Trump complained about the cost of joint drills even as his high-stakes second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un collapsed last week.
Officials familiar with the talks describe a North Korean delegation that came into the summit fully expecting they would leave with a deal. Instead, Kim and his team left Hanoi bewildered.
It was clear early on that no deal would come out of the two leaders’ summit in Hanoi, WTOP National Security Correspondent J.J. Green writes. One expert on the region is “surprised and disappointed,” while another tells Green there could be a silver lining.
