The following is the full text of the letter that President Donald Trump sent to Kim Jong Un of North Korea:
We greatly appreciate your time, patience and effort with respect to our recent negotiations and discussions regarding a summit long sought by both parties, which was scheduled for June 12 in Singapore. We were informed that the meeting was requested by North Korea, but that for us it is totally irrelevant. I really wanted to be there with you. Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility shown in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting. Therefore, let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place. You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I ask God to never have to be used.
I felt that a wonderful dialogue was forming between you and me, and ultimately, only the dialogue matters. Someday, I look forward to meeting you. In the meantime, I want to thank you for the release of the hostages who are now at home with their families. That was a beautiful gesture and it was very appreciated.
If you change your mind about this important summit, do not hesitate to call me or write me. The world, and North Korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. This missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history.
Donald J. Trump
