He then went on to say that he had spoken to Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, the leaders of the US military, South Korea, and Japan, and that they all stand ready to respond to "foolish or reckless acts" from North Korea.
Before the summit's cancellation, Trump and North Korea traded ultimatums, with North Korea saying it could either...
