In a letter published by the White House, it is said that Trump called the meeting “unacceptable”.
I really hoped to meet you. Unfortunately, given the huge anger and open hostility shown in your last statement, I considered it inappropriate to hold this long-planned meeting now.
Trump added that the DPRK had repeatedly mentioned its nuclear potential and said that the US armament was “so huge and powerful that he prayed to God that he never had to use it.”

In a letter published by the White House, it is said that Trump called the meeting “inexpedient”.
We appreciate your time, patience and efforts regarding the negotiations on the organization of the summit, which was to be held on June 12 in Singapore. We learned that the meeting was requested by North Korea, which is absolutely inadvisable for us.
I really hoped to meet you. Unfortunately, given the tremendous anger and open hostility shown in your last statement, I considered it inappropriate to hold this long-planned meeting now. Therefore, please, let this letter serve as a representation that the summit in Singapore – for the benefit of both sides, but at the expense of the world – will not take place.
You are talking about your nuclear potential, but our [nuclear capability] is so huge and powerful that I pray to God that we never have to use it.
I had a feeling that a wonderful dialogue was being built between us, and ultimately, this is the only dialogue that is important. I very much hope someday to meet with you. Meanwhile, I want to thank you for the release of the hostages, who are now at home with their families. It was a beautiful gesture, which we highly appreciated.
If you change your mind about this summit, please do not hesitate to write me or call. Peace and North Korea in particular have lost an excellent opportunity to find peace, prosperity and prosperity. This missed opportunity is a truly sad historical moment.
About the plans of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Ne to hold a meeting became known in late March 2018. It was supposed that its main theme was to eliminate North Korea’s nuclear weapons.
