North Korea-US Summit Failed To Denuclearize North Korea


According to CNN, the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un this week failed because North Korea will not eliminate its nuclear arsenal anytime soon. The first summit ended similarly, with no deal made to denuclearize the nation. As talks continue, Pyongyang has continued to expand, conceal, and deploy its arsenal. The Trump administration has maintained that immediate disarmament of North Korea is the outcome they are pushing for. Following the abrupt end of the summit, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the press, "we couldn't quite get there today."
