Trump made a very big deal out North Korea's supposed agreement to return the remains of Americans killed in the North during the Korean War, and that would been a genuinely good thing if it happened, but it looks like there may have been no deal at all.
North Korean and American officials were suppose to discuss the matter today, but the North didn't show up.
North Korean officials did not show up to a planned meeting with US officials at the demilitarized zone Thursday, where they were expected to continue discussions on repatriating the remains of Americans killed during the Korean War, a senior US official tells CNN.
There was no call or explanation from North Korean officials on why they skipped the meeting.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ignored a question about the apparent snub when asked by reporters traveling with him in Brussels on Thursday.
The agreement to return American remains was announced after Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un last month, but it's become crystal clear that the piece of paper Trump and Kim signed was effectively meaningless and worthless.
Actually, Trump did follow through on his pledge to end joint military exercises with the South Korean military so I suppose Kim Jong-un did get something out of the meeting.
Color me skeptical that the North even has a significant number of remains in their possession nearly 70 years later.
