OK, So Maybe It Isn’t Entirely John Bolton’s Fault If The Trump/Kim Summit Falls Through

We’ve Been Blaming Trump’s National Security Adviser For Meddling. But China’s Been Interfering Too.

China’s hand is becoming more evident as North Korea continues to aim salvos of heightened rhetoric at the U.S. For instance, today North Korea ridiculed Vice President Pence after he too started throwing around references to Libya (which is one of Bolton’s favorite things to do, although Pence did it in an even more aggressive context). And it threatened to walk away from the talks, while at the same time U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo went out of his way to emphasize the talks are still scheduled for June 12th in Singapore.
