According to the latest press statement from the White House, US President Donald Trump has cancelled the Singapore meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
The June 12 meeting was originally scheduled to take place in Singapore, but in recent weeks, the US appears to be deliberately provoking North Korea through a war exercise with South Korea on May 15. Earlier on Monday (May 21), US Vice President Mike Pence said in a televised interview claiming that North Korea will end up like Libya if it does not deal with the US.
The cancellation of the Singapore meeting seals the end of North and South Korea’s warm relations brought forth by China and South Korea’s President. Donald Trump in his letter today threatened that his nuclear bombs are “so massive and powerful”:

Kim Jong Un
Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democractic People’s Republic of Korea
Dear Mr. Chairman:
We greatly appreciate your time, patience, and effort with respect to our recent negotiations and discussions relative to a summit long sought by both parties, which was scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore. We were informed that the meeting was requested by North Korea, but that to us is totally irrelevant. I was very much looking forward to being there with you. Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting. Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place. You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.
I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately it is only that dialogue that matters. Some day, I look very much forward to meeting you. In the meantime, I want to thank you for the release of the hostages who are now home with their families. That was a beautiful gesture and was very much appreciated.
If you change your mind having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.
Donald J. Trump
President of the United States of America
