As we reported earlier. President Trump canceled the upcoming U.S.-North Korea summit with dictator Kim Jong Un, which was scheduled for June. The move was described by Axios as "pure Trump."
Beyond the very serious geopolitical stakes, this move is pure Trump. A theatrical withdrawal from a potential “deal," and reminder to Americans that he milked his adversary and gave them nothing in return.

You can go back to a 2014 Trump tweet that fits the situation we are currently in very well.
Negotiations 101: The best deals you can make are the ones you walk away from...and then get them with better terms.

Check out some of the reactions to the tweet:

And, North Korea is already conceding and stating they want America back into a deal and reconciling differences. Calculated and by the book, as per usual. https://t.co/Cuy1z9cSAr

Is Trump implementing "The Art of the Deal" on his North Korean adversary? It sure seems like it. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out in the coming weeks.
