WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on President Trump's letter to Kim Jong-Un canceling the summit in Singapore:

"This letter is a sad example of the petulance and shallowness of the foreign policy being pursued by this President. It is another demonstration of President Trump’s treating of critical negotiations as if they were just another real estate deal. From the beginning to the present, the dealings with North Korea have been sophomoric and without strategic or tactical merit. While North Korea’s history has shown them to be untrustworthy and duplicitous, this Administration’s actions have heightened the danger posed by North Korea’s reckless behavior."
