Trump Pulls Out of North Korea Summit...Weinstein to Be Charged, Arrested...Irish to Vote on Abortion Law

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – When North Korea slammed U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and national security adviser John Bolton, its language was very blunt and impolite, but still milder than its typical crude and inflammatory insults unleashed on other top U.S. and South Korean officials. The North likely had just tried to strengthen its positions amid negotiations on giving up its nuclear program. Calling Pence a “political dummy” was still strong enough for President Donald Trump to scrap the summit with Kim Jong Un.

One official said it’s likely the case also will include at least one other victim who has not come forward publicly.
