BREAKING!! KIM JONG UN CAVES TO TRUMP!!

Well, it happened, it only took a few hours for North Korea to freak out that Trump had called their bluff, and they’re begging to come back to the table.

This is an unmitigated win for Trump. Now when he goes to the meeting, he’ll have the upper hand, and will be able to negotiate from a position of strength. That’s the way it is.

I thought they might cave after reading this reaction to Trump’s announcement:

They were bluffing. They were bluffing the whole time. And Trump called them on it.

UPDATE!!

Here’s the statement from North Korea:

Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan issued a statement carried by the North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). It came hours after Trump announced the surprise decision to withdraw from his summit with Kim Jong-un set for June 12.

“We express our willingness to sit down face-to-face with the U.S. and resolve issues anytime and in any format,” he said in the statement.

Kim said the U.S.’ decision to cancel the upcoming talks demonstrates how serious the animosity between the North and the U.S. remains, which he said underlines the urgent need of a summit between the leaders of the two countries.

He said that the North Korean leader has made all-out efforts to prepare for the summit with the U.S., saying his meeting with Trump will serve as a good start.

“Despite all of this, the U.S.’ unilateral decision to scrap the talks causes us to reconsider whether all of the efforts and the path we have taken is really the right one or not,” he said.

Kim said that the North remains open to talks with the U.S.

“Our commitment to doing our best for the sake of peace and stability for the world and the Korean Peninsula remains unchanged, and we are open-minded in giving time and opportunity to the U.S.,” he said.

MmmHmmm. CAVED!!!
