Trump Blames Democrats for Failed Summit With Kim Jong Un

Lanny Davis, Cohen's attorney, declined to comment on Trump's tweet Sunday night.

"Trump attacked the Democrats" decision to publicly interview Michael Cohen, his former lawyer and operative, on the same day as a meeting between Trump and Kim in Hanoi last week.

He said it may have been "a new low in American politics".

"I never think it is helpful to have-I don't care what president's in office-to have contentious hearings like that when there is some serious negotiations happening overseas", Rogers said.

"The military drills, or war games as I call them, were never even discussed in my mtg w/ Kim Jong Un of NK", Trump tweeted days after he met with Kim in Vietnam in an attempt to reach a denuclearization agreement.

Some analysts say the conversion to smaller exercises and simulations will weaken the allies' military readiness when North Korea has yet to take real steps toward disarmament.

"The revelation of another nuclear facility other than Yongbyon, demonstrates how the current administration has been complacent and irresponsible", Hwang said, referring to the second uranium enrichment plant Trump mentioned at the press conference in Hanoi following the summit's collapse.

"It doesn't mean that he accepts it as reality".

The canceled drills are triggering debate in Seoul as Kim Jong Un returns to Pyongyang.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., a close Trump ally, broke with the president.

Hwang Kyo-ahn, the newly elected representative of the Liberty Korea Party, blamed President Moon Jae-in for the decision during a parliamentary committee meeting on Monday, local news service Money Today reported. Kim will be able to portray himself to his people and supporters as the charismatic head of a nuclear-armed power, not an global pariah that starves its citizens so it can build weapons.

But Bolton said that Trump's view is that he "gave nothing away". "That's what matters, not my view".

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, took issue with Bolton's response.

"This the result of a president who is not prepared for these kind of negotiations, a staff that is not well-prepared and that is essentially flying by the seat of its trousers", Schiff said on Face the Nation.

During the CBS interview, Bolton also headed off potential criticism that earlier diplomatic groundwork prior to the summit was supposed to negate the possibility of both sides walking away from the meetings without a deal.

"It was the sanctions that brought the North Koreans to the table".

Rogers didn't think the North Korea summit went well for the US and that Trump made a mistake in his negotiation tactics because he has such a hard stance.

"I give my advice to the president", he later added. McCarthy was on ABC's "This Week", and Schiff was on CBS.
