BREAKING: The #TrumpKimSummit has been cut short according to White House spokesperson Sarah Huckalie Sanders.

Maybe Trump realized he's been played by Kim Jong Un?
U.S. press secretary's statement after Trump-Kim summit collapses without a deal. #TrumpKimSummit
Trump is going to speak soon (presumably) about how and why the #TrumpKimSummit summit broke down.

A master dealmaker Trump is not.
Look at markets as we wait for the briefing. Asian stocks extend declines along with US futures after #TrumpKimSummit ends with no deal Korean won drops and yen ticks up

South Korea's benchmark index tanks, falling 1.8% at close bloom.bg/2EhHgGt
Trump can't help it if he failed in Vietnam, he has bone spurs!
This is what happens when you don't Prep for a summit. This is what happens when you don't have the work done before you get there.
Trump's body language and demeanor is so dejected and monotone. He is not happy.
Trump is talking about India and Pakistan. Now he is talking about Venezuela but didnt name Maduro. Does he know his name? Anyway, way to bury the lead.
Trump: "Kim Jong Un is quite a character."
Trump on North Korea: "Sometimes you have to walk."
Now Pompeo is talking about how the teams "have gotten to know each other."

Also, Pompeo implies possible the US wanted to keep negotiating but that the North Koreans pulled out.
Trump says the #TrumpKimSummit
broke down because:

"It was about the sanctions, basically they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety and we couldn't do that. They were willing to de-nuk a large portion of the areas we wanted."
Trump on breakdown of #TrumpKimSummit

"They weren't willing to do an area we wanted. They were willing to give us areas, but not the ones we wanted."
True randomly mentions that Sean
Hannity is there, asks the pool if he should ask hannity in question. Hannity gets the mic and says "I work in radio ans TV." Then Hannity basically says Trump is walking away as some sort of secret plan.

What is happening? #TrumpKimSummit
Again, Trump says Pompeo and his team are really close to the North Korean team.
BAM! Trump gets the Cohen question.
#TrumpKimSummit Briefing

Trump calls the #CohenHearing "fake".

Then Trump says Cohen is lying about everything except when Cohen says there is no collusion. Trump calls the Russia investigation a "witch hunt", "hoax", and "shameful".
"When we walked away it was a very friendly walk."

- Trump at #TrumpKimSummit briefing.
Describing Kim Jong Un's political regime Trump called it "a very different system, to out it mildly."

(Well, to put it vividly: Kim Jong Un runs a country sized concentration camp.)
REPORTER: can you specify on the various ways you discussed with chairman Kim to advance denuclarization.

TRUMP: We discussed many ways. And denuclearization is an important word and it's become and very well used word. And a lot of people don't know what it means.
Trump describing North Korea's location:

"Incredible location, on one side you have Rush-ah and Gy-nah and on the other side you have South Korea and your surrounded by water. And among the most beautiful shorelines in the world."
Trump on breakdown of #TrumpKimSummit:

"We have partnerships with many counties Rash-ah, Gy-Nah, and others. And then of course South Korea is is important to this whole thing."
Trump has mentioned Russia first every time he lists countries. Russian foreign minister Lavrov is in Hanoi, the Japanese have not yet been consulted and the South Korean govt released a statement saying theyre "perplexed" by the development and are reaching out y ok the US govt
Okay, I can't listen to Trump say Gy-nah one more time. I'm going to sleep. This Trump guy is a hack. Goodnight Twitter.
Let me know if anything else crazy or embarrassing happens. Oh, who am I kidding, Twitter, just tell me what else happens. Night!

Just like how Putin didnt know anything about hacking and likehow Mohammad bin Salman didnt know anything about Khashoggi.
Trump, simultaneously blasts Michael Cohen for being a liar but praise him for saying he has no proof of Russian collusion.

"He lied a lot, but it was very interesting, because he didn’t lie about one thing: He said no collusion."
Nancy Pelosi on Trump believing Kim Jong Un didn't know anything about Otto Warmbier's death:

"It's strange. I don't know. There is something wrong with Putin, Kim Jong Un — in my view, thugs — that the president chooses to believe."
North Korea’s foreign minister says country seeks only partial sanctions relief, contradicting Trump
"President Trump will stand firm until we achieve the complete denuclearization of North Korea,"

But will he really?
