It would not be uncouth to say that President Trump’s ability to bring North Korea back into the international fold was a bit surprising, but that is no knock on the deal-making ability of The Donald.
No, this is merely a statement to reiterate the wild nature of the North Korean nation, and their dynastic Kim family of rulers whose current incarnation is a dainty little despot named Kim Jong Un.
Kim, like the Kim’s before him, came out swinging against Donald Trump as soon as the candidate emerged on the American political scene. The DPRK’s dictator was hilariously fond of utilizing a Dickens-era nickname for Trump: Dotard.
The two world leaders quickly entered in to a war of words that would see them each promise the other utter destruction and death.
In other words, it wasn’t very pretty.
After a lengthy and laborious series of exchanges, and some hefty sanctions, Donald Trump was finally able to convince Kim Jong Un that it was time to end the decades-long isolationism and vitriol, and scrap his plans for a nuclear arsenal. Now, as the two boisterous leaders make final preparations for a face-to-face meeting, Kim is suddenly getting cold feet, and making some fairly damaging claims in the interim.
North Korea said Wednesday it is canceling high-level talks with South Korea planned for later in the day due to ongoing military exercises between the South and the United States.
The North’s Korean Central News Agency said the Max Thunder drills between the South Korean and U.S. air forces are a rehearsal for invasion of the North and a provocation amid warming inter-Korean ties.
Furthermore, the North Koreans then threatened to back out of their upcoming meeting with President Trump as well.
The country also threatened to cancel a scheduled June 12 summit between Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump in Singapore.
This unexpected news come after several positive developments between North Korea and the United States in the past month.
North Korea has always been a nation of erratic behavior, especially when it comes to the unfathomable fixtures of the Kim dynasty. It comes as no surprise to some observers that this peace plan could have gone south in a hurry.
The DPRK has struggled at times to even feed their own citizens, losing millions of people to famine in the 1990’s all due to the Kim dynasty’s insistence on a policy of strict isolationism.
