DONALD Trump has insisted he "had to walk" from his summit with Kim Jong-un after the pair failed to agree a nuke deal prompting the cancellation of their lunch together. The leaders scrapped a planned signing ceremony as their second day of crunch talks in Hanoi, Vietnam, ended without an agreement on how to denuclearise the Korean peninsula. At a press conference, the US President said the despot refused to dismantle North Korea's Yongbyon nuclear complex and wanted the sanctions imposed on his crackpot regime lifted. While insisting the two leaders had spent some "productive time" together, Trump said: "Sometimes you have to walk." The US President continued: "They wanted the sanctions lifted. And we were unwilling to do that. "We will end being very good friends with chairman Kim and North Korea. They have amazing potential."He has a certain vision. It’s not exactly our vision. But it’s a lot closer than we were a year ago." The brash New Yorker said that the North … [Read more...] about Donald Trump marches out of summit early and CANCELS planned lunch after Kim Jong-un demands sanctions are lifted without giving up nukes

KIM Jong-un and North Korea's relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons has heightened global tensions and escalated the risk of military conflict with the US as well as its neighbours. But very little is known about the dictator behind the military regime. Here is everything we do know. Who is Kim Jong-un? Kim is the second child of his predecessor as Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-il and his wife Kim Yong-hui. North Korean authorities have stated that his birth date is January 8, 1982, but South Korean intelligence officials believe the actual date is a year later. Chicago Bulls legend Dennis Rodman, who is a friend of the dictator, said he was born on January 8, 1983.

DW: Does the continuing saga surrounding US President Donald Trump, special counselor Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the investigation, remind you of Watergate and the Nixon era? Nick Akerman:Yes, it is coming around the same time of the year. The anniversary of the Saturday night massacre is coming up at the end of October, so it is clearly at the same time of the year eerily enough. It is hard to say what is exactly going on here. One part of me thinks, this whole thing about Rod Rosenstein was just a setup to try and deflect attention away from the Kavanaugh hearings right now, which is what Trump's normal pattern is: to try to do something to get people's attention in a different direction. So, I am not sure how serious he is about this and whether this was just a deflection from Kavanaugh or whether he really is serious about getting rid of Rosenstein. Part of me believes that this thing is all a setup by Trump to begin … [Read more...] about Watergate alum: Firing Rod Rosenstein would be criminal
