president so long as washington remains hostile joanne's foreign minister made the comments on the 2nd anniversary of a landmark summit between the 2 leaders he said north korea will no longer allow donald trump to score political points by meeting him while giving nothing in return whether kelly is a professor of international relations at south korea's puts on national university he says north korea no longer trusts the u.s. president to bring about any substantial change. i think the north koreans came into that really expecting that meeting with trump personally that was the 1st time ever got to meet a u.s. president would bring some kind of change right it would allow them to skirt around the national defense bureaucracy and foreign policy community in america which is not hostile to deal with north korea for decades right and this would allow them to sort of leapfrog over that go straight to the president and finally pull out a deal and trump just didn't do that i mean he has pushed for a deal with north korea has been sort of erratic and kind of confused you know and talks about the love letters and any kind of drops north korea for 6 months you
