(Bloomberg) -- The bonhomie between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is nearing a key deadline showing new signs of strain.

Trump urged Kim over the weekend to “act quickly” to get a nuclear deal done, suggesting the two leaders could meet again “soon.” His comments came hours after North Korea ruled out nuclear talks without a policy change by the U.S. and reported on a military drill observed by Kim himself.

Veteran North Korea nuclear adviser, Kim Kye Gwan, told Trump that Pyongyang will no longer give him “things to boast about,” the state’s official KCNA news agency on Monday quoted him as saying. He added North Korea is no longer interested in talks that the U.S. “uses to buy time.”

Trump and Kim Jong Un, who have previously displayed what Pyongyang calls “mysteriously wonderful chemistry,” appear to be going in different directions as the clock ticks down. Kim has given Trump until the end of the year to ease up on sanctions or risk him taking a “new path,” meaning a possible escalation of military tensions during the U.S. presidential campaign.

A senior U.S. Defense Department official said Monday the Trump administration has left the door open to talks but North Korea’s attitude so far has not been helpful. Washington wants Pyongyang back at the table and to abide by its pledge to work toward denuclearization, the official said.

But North Korea has turned a cold shoulder to the talks, with its Korean Central News Agency on Monday citing Kim Yong Chol, a top aide to its leader as saying: “We have nothing pressing and have no intention to sit at the table with the tricky U.S.” There can be no trust until America drops its “hostile policy” toward North Korea, said the aide, who visited Trump at the White House in January as part of a rare North Korean delegation to Washington.

North Korean often uses the state-run media to issue its highest public pronouncements to the outside world, and has published statements in recent days painting a bleak picture of the nuclear discussions. The talks have accomplished little since Trump and Kim Jong Un agreed to “work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula” in their first meeting in June 2018.

After more than a year of talks and three Trump-Kim Jong Un meetings, the two sides remain divided on issues from sanctions relief to disarmament. Even though North Korea hasn’t taken any major steps to give up its weapons, Kim has won concessions from Trump that include canceling some U.S.-South Korean joint military drills that have drawn Pyongyang’s anger.

Trump takes credit for opening 'new Apple factory’ that’s been open since Obama was president

  Trump takes credit for opening 'new Apple factory’ that’s been open since Obama was president President Donald Trump was in Austin, Texas on Wednesday alongside Apple chief executive Tim Cook (or Tim Apple, if you're Trump) to tour one of the manufacturing plants the tech company builds parts. According to The Verge, during the visit the president suggested that the factory was ‘new’ saying: We’re seeing the beginning of a very powerful and important plant. Anybody that followed my campaign, I would always talk about Apple, that I want to see Apple building plants in the United States. And that’s what’s happening.

North Korea hasn’t explained what Kim Jong Un intends to do on his “new path,” although the regime has often referred to his decision to halt tests of nuclear bombs and intercontinental ballistic missiles two years ago. In May, North Korea resumed tests of shorter-range ballistic missiles.

Kim may feel less pressure to cut a deal because he’s been successfully poking holes in the global web of sanctions against North Korea. Still Kim will be hard pressed to find a better U.S. negotiating partner than Trump, who shrugged off long-standing U.S. policy to meet with the North Korean leader in the first place.

“North Korea knows that the best way to approach the U.S. in an attempt for sanctions relief is to start from the top,” said Choi Soon-mi, a professor on North Korean studies at Ajou Institute of Unification.

That may explain why the regime launched a verbal attack on former Vice President Joe Biden, denouncing him as a “rabid dog” in a KCNA commentary last week. Biden has been critical of Trump’s North Korea policy and his personal praise for dictators.

Trump offered an unexpected response of his own on Twitter, mocking Biden as “sleepy and very slow,” but “somewhat better than” a rabid dog.

The North Korea warning about U.S. nuclear talks came despite the U.S.’s decision to suspend another round of military drills with South Korea. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on the sidelines of a regional security conference that Washington and Seoul had “jointly decided to postpone this month’s combined flying training event” after “close consultation and careful consideration.”

Pyongyang last week blamed U.S.-South Korean military drills “as a main factor of screwing up tensions and on Monday KCNA cited a top official as saying the cancellation wouldn’t help negotiations.


‘Bleak’ U.N. Report on a Planet in Peril Looms Over New Climate Talks .
With world leaders gathering in Madrid next week for their annual bargaining session over how to avert a climate catastrophe, the latest assessment issued by the United Nations said Tuesday that greenhouse gas emissions are still rising dangerously. “The summary findings are bleak,” said the annual assessment, which is produced by the United Nations Environment Program and is formally known as the Emissions Gap Report. Countries have failed to halt the rise of greenhouse gas emissions despite repeated warnings from scientists, with China and the United States, the two biggest polluters, further increasing their emissions last year.
