http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-44242558 US President Donald Trump has cancelled a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, saying it would be inappropriate at this time. Mr Trump said the summit, which had been scheduled to take place in Singapore on 12 June, would not now take place. Well now the coin looks a bit (more) silly
Because of course he did.
They shouldn't have planned it so far ahead. It gave him too much time to fuck it up.

Youre not gonna pull out of the summit! I am! I never wanted your dumb summit anyway!
"You talk about nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used." It's gonna be YYUUGE
But Donald, you made coins! COINS!
Man, if only he pulled out other few times in his career.
To be fair, won't those coins be even more valuable now? Commemorative memorabilia for what would have been a significant event that never happened?
Okay but seriously though why would anybody want to negotiate with us after this? Trump has come out and said that any deal that we make is going to try and put America first and that if any country trading with us gets a better deal he will just impose tarrifs. Aditiinally deals mean nothing and can be pulled out of or renegotiated on a whim. We won't even tell the parties involved that it's happening before it fucking hits the press, leaving everyone in the dark and leaving no room for negotiation to prevent it! And to top it all off we won't even sit down to talks because of our dumbass in chief's big ego.
Or they'll ship them to Africa for children to play with, like they do the losing team's Superbowl merchandise.
this just feels to me like this was kim's intention all along, to make america look like the bad guys america got played hard, by themselves
To be honest I think we all knew NK was never going to come to the table and Trump is trying to save face by looking like he changed his mind instead of letting NK embarrass him.
Trump America proves, once again, to be completely unreliable. If I were any other country, I’d just write us off for the next few years or until Fatty la Dump gets impeached. Also, fukkin lmao, that coin and Nobel Peace Prize sure are a couple eggs on his face too.
I wonder how long until we go back to the rhetoric of threatening WWIII again.
I mean, the VP already threatened a Libya on NK, and that was during the time before the meet. I’m better almost immediately.
Once again, Trump has managed, with great difficulty and all the odds against him, to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. This was a fucking gimme. The basic terms Kim was aiming for were fair - ditching North Korea's nuclear arsenal for pulling American nukes out of South Korea. That is fundamentally a win-win trade. Verification would be important, and North Korea might not be willing to accept the harsh terms we'd want on that front (particularly if they're approaching the talks in bad faith), but it's a solvable problem, especially if you know what Kim sees as threats and goals. I suspect Trump, or more likely his foreign policy handlers, decided that they can't simultaneously negotiate a nuclear disarmament and compliance inspection regime in North Korea while pulling out of the near-identical Iran deal. Either that, or this is Trump's idiotic idea of a "power play" to show he's tough and a master negotiator.
Are you kidding? He's already waving America's big nuclear dick around in the letter he wrote to Kim about cancelling. It's the line TheGreen posted above.
Trump just wanted his fantasy fulfilled of having his flabby, mishapen head on a government-made coin. That's all the coin business was ever about. It's very probable that came after months of his aides telling him he can't just put his own likeness on legal tender.
Nah, this seems like a classic "deal" tatic of his- seem angry and pull out, but secertly still interested so the other party can give you more. His ego won't allow him to fully walk away from this.
Weak pull out game. Sad! That's not very hard to do, tbh.
If Trump and Pence just kept their damn mouths shut then the meet would have went ahead. Theyve just sent out veiled threats constantly so ofcourse NK is going to be pussy and snap back at them. What a shame, really could have started something to make life better for those in NK.
Imagine if NK keeps working with SK out of spite though, wouldn't that be great.

Can we at least give him a mini-Nobel for effort
Disappointed not surprised.
It's all right, these are his participation trophies.
Dems should be out there right now hammering the message on this: Trump was handed a potentially historic opportunity and he fucked it up
