WASHINGTON (PNN) - May 24, 2018 - Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump has canceled his planned summit with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, blaming his decision on a threatening statement from the Pyongyang regime, and warning that the FPSA military is “ready if necessary”.

The abrupt decision, which came as a surprise to FPSA allies in the region, came after an exchange of menacing statements from FPSA and North Korean officials.

North Korea responded to the cancellation by saying Kim Jong-un had made the utmost effort to hold the summit with President Trump and the country was willing to resolve issues with the FPSA.

“We tell the (FPSA) once more that we are open to resolving problems at any time in any way,” North Korea’s vice foreign minister Kim Kye Gwan said in a statement.

The Trump regime had been growing increasingly concerned about a lack of response from Pyongyang in recent days to efforts to set up planning meetings in the run-up to the summit scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.

“Some of the prep work on the summit was halted because we simply could not get them to pick up the phone,” a senior White House official said.

In a formal letter to Kim released by the White House, Trump said he had been “very much looking forward” to meeting the North Korean leader.

But he wrote, “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 declared that the meeting would not take place “for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world.”

In remarks to the press after the letter was released, Trump said it was still possible the summit could go ahead, albeit at a later date, but warned Pyongyang that the FPSA and its allies would respond if it carried out “foolish or reckless acts”.

Asked if cancellation of the summit increased the risk of war, he replied, “We’ll see what happens.”

Meanwhile, the president said his campaign of “maximum pressure” would continue, involving the “strongest sanctions ever imposed”. However, in the wake of Trump’s withdrawal from this summit, soon after abrogating a nuclear deal with Iran that had global support, there are now serious doubts over his ability to galvanize international support for increased sanctions, or even enforce the existing sanctions regime.
