Daily Mail: 'This wasn’t the right time to sign something': Trump says North Korea 'wasn't ready' for a real nuclear agreement

* Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un abruptly ended their summit in Hanoi early without signing a deal
* He said the issue was Kim's insistence that all sanctions get lifted in return for only giving up some nukes
* Trump continued to tout his 'warm' relationship with Kim, but added 'you have to be willing to walk away'
* Secretary of State Mike Pompeo added that progress had been made 'but we didn't get all the way'
* Planned lunch never happened
* Kim's state news agency KCNA said on Thursday: 'Sincere and in-depth views were exchanged to bring about a comprehensive and groundbreaking outcome'
* The talks came just hours after Michael Cohen's bombshell testimony to Congress which damned his ex-boss as a racist and a liar

President Donald Trump defended his decision to walk away from his North Korean nuclear summit without a deal in an interview Fox News host Sean Hannity from Vietnam that will air on Thursday evening in the United States.

Trump said he wasn't 'satisfied' with the outcome and he suspects that Kim Jong-un 'wasn't satisfied,' either.

'We’re working towards something, but we didn’t sign anything today, it didn’t quite work out,' he told Hannity on Thursday afternoon local time. 'Good relationship, but I decided this wasn’t the right time to sign something so we’ll see what happens over a period of time.'
