"North Korea threatens to cancel Trump summit over US nuke demands"

I've been expecting something like this. Getting all worked up because Kim was going to abandon an already dead test site was a waste of time. I'll bet he had fun jerking Trump's chain.

North Korea has threatened to abandon planned talks between leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump in June if Washington insists on pushing it "into a corner" on nuclear disarmament.
A statement published by the state-run Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) said North Korea would never accept economic assistance from the US in exchange for unilaterally abandoning its nuclear program.
Kim Kye Gwan, North Korea's First Vice Minister of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was quoted in the article as saying the US said "it would offer economic compensation and benefit in case we abandon (nuclear weapons)."
"We have never had any expectation of US support in carrying out our economic construction and will not... make such a deal in future," he added.

If the Trump administration was "genuinely committed" to improving ties with Pyongyang, "they will receive a deserving response," Kim Kye Gwan said. "But if they try to push us into a corner and force only unilateral nuclear abandonment, we will no longer be interested in that kind of talks and will have to reconsider ... the upcoming summit."

The summit was never going to happen in any case -- Trump wanted McDonalds and Kim insisted on Burger King.

Kim will go through with the summit for the photo ops. But you can be sure that it will end with Little Rocket Man standing up to the big bully and making his people proud.

Yet another “deal” the buffoon-in-chief will get to walk away from. As designed:

Kim already has everything he wants: endless cash for himself and Chinese support for whatever he does. There has never been anything any Western country could offer him, except ATTENTION for playing the perpetual victim.

What’s interesting to me is what happened to make Kim change his tune so dramatically. What went on behind the scenes?

Nothing changed, that has always been more or less their position. Get the U.S. military away from North Korea.
Also, talk about 'denuclearization' has been deliberately vague all along. Trump and Kim's language are all over the map.

It may well be a win-win for trump team. When nothing comes of it, they just say “Hey, we tried! Not our fault.”
