S. Korea's Moon urges new US-North denuclearisation talks

Explaining what happened at the time, Trump said, "Sometimes you have to walk".

Although Trump, while in Vietnam, said he walked away from the nuclear summit with Kim because of a disagreement about economic sanctions on North Korea, he gave another explanation for the failure of the talks on Twitter on Sunday evening.

On Sunday, he said the hearing may have contributed to the breakdown.

He said it may have been "a new low in American politics". "Never done when a president is overseas". In a press conference that followed, Trump said he was forced to call off the signing of an agreement due to North Korea's demands for all sanctions to be lifted. "He is a cheat", Cohen said of his former boss.

Bolton also appeared on CNN's State of the Union, where he defended Trump who said he took Kim "at his word" when the North Korean leader claimed he knew nothing about the alleged torture of imprisoned US student Otto Warmbier. While denouncing the activity as "despicable and barbaric", President Trump has not held the leaders directly accountable because, as Bolton notes, the USA has "a hard line to walk to negotiate". "It means that he accepts that's what Kim Jong Un said", Bolton said.

"Fundamentally, in the case of all three of those countries we've got to pursue American national interests and that involves matters much weightier, much more important than some of these statements by the leaders", Bolton told "Fox News Sunday".

That was followed by an official visit to the country, where Kim paid tribute to Vietnam's late revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh.

According to a senior United States official, Pyongyang in return offered only to close down "a portion of the Yongbyon complex", a sprawling site covering multiple nuclear facilities - and the North is believed to have other uranium enrichment plants.

In return, Pyongyang was only offering to close a portion of the Yongbyon complex, a sprawling site covering multiple different facilities - and the North is believed to have other uranium enrichment plants. They described it as an effort to support diplomacy aimed at resolving the North Korean nuclear crisis.

The Democratic head of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff called the entire summit a "spectacular failure" and said Trump made things worse with his comments about Otto Warmbier.

"The president did give up a great deal, by going to that summit, by enhancing Kim Jong Un's prestige on the world stage, by giving up those military exercises in the last summit and getting nothing for it", Schiff told CBS.

"The president's been very clear he viewed what happened to Otto Warmbier as barbaric and unacceptable and I think the best thing North Korea could do right now would be to come up with a full explanation of exactly what happened to him", Bolton said.

"I don't think the leverage gets reduced because I think we will keep the maximum pressure campaign in place even before the summit", the USA national security advisor said.

Trump has repeatedly complained about the Cohen testimony and the escalating investigations of him since he returned from Hanoi without an agreement with Kim.

Warmbier's family says he was brutally tortured while imprisoned in North Korea.

Bolton was touring the Sunday political shows the morning after the US and South Korea announced an end to key annual large-scale military exercises.
