Trump says congress grilling of Cohen contributed to summit 'walk'

Trump says congress grilling of Cohen contributed to summit 'walk'

Mr Bolton said he gives his advice and opinions to the president and Mr Trump "makes up his own mind".

"While I believe the North-US talks will produce an agreement in the end, I ask officials to work hard for the resumption of working-level talks between the US and the North as it is not favourable to have a long absence or stalemate in talks".

"The prospect for success seemed dim in light of the insincerity of Kim Jong Un", Pelosi said.

"He went from that isolation -saw no light of day outside of the borders of North Korea- to now this worldwide player, certainly in the region and that gave him stature for him to walk in and do what he did in those hearings", Rogers said.

US President Donald Trump (R) walks with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un during a break in talks at the second US-North Korea summit at the Sofitel Legend Metropole hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam, on February 28, 2019.

Trump said that North Korea had asked for "sanctions lifted in their entirety", while North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho later announced Pyongyang wanted the "partial removal" of worldwide restrictions.

"The president's been very clear he viewed what happened to Otto Warmbier as barbaric and unacceptable and I think the best thing North Korea could do right now would be to come up with a full explanation of exactly what happened to him", Bolton said on CNN. Kim Jong Un himself said in our last meeting, you know, we're going to go through many stations before we achieve this deal.

"Christians have led the way toward bridge building in the last 20-plus years, and the summit can potentially open the border between North and South Korea". 'I wasn´t able to watch too much because I´ve been a little bit busy, but I think having a fake hearing like that and having it in the middle of this very important summit is really a awful thing'.

Bolton said the leaders left on good terms and that Trump made an important point to North Korea and other countries that negotiate with him.

Bolton also sought to explain Trump's comments about taking Kim's word about Otto Warmbier, the American college student who was held prisoner in North Korea and was sent home in a vegetative state and later died.

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.

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

Washington and Seoul announced on Sunday that they will eliminate massive annual springtime military drills and replace them with smaller exercises, in what they called an effort to support diplomacy with North Korea.

Moon said South Korea will continue to push ahead with engagement with North Korea within the boundaries of US -led worldwide sanctions against the North.
