President Donald Trump has canceled his planned June 12 summit in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"I was very much looking forward to being there with you (in Singapore)," Trump said in a letter to Kim released by the White House. "Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate at time time to have this long planned meeting."

North Korea had threatened to pull out of the unprecedented summit after U.S. officials called for a Libya model approach, which involved the country’s total nuclear dismantlement before any concessions were granted. Pyongyang has called for a gradual process that links early concessions to incremental denuclearization measures.

Trump in his letter, responded in kind, referencing U.S. nuclear capabilities “so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.”

Trump, in his letter, also left the door open, telling Kim that if he changes his mind "having to do with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or write."
