Trump in a press conference that he walked away from the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. But he emphasized that “it was a friendly walk”. The meeting in Vietnam was cut short and ended without an agreement and not even a joint statement.
Trump said “it was all about the sanctions”. He added “basically they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that”. On the other hand, Trump said Kim offered to dismantle North Korea’s main nuclear facility at Yongbyon, but “it wasn’t enough” to the US.
Trump also added that he could’ve signed an agreement today but it wasn’t the right time. He emphasized he’d “rather do it right”.
