"For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the "walk", Trump said on Twitter, referring to his decision to walk away from what he previously said was a bad deal with Kim. "Never done when a president is overseas". The newspaper didn't mention the lack of agreement in the summit.
Moon, who has adopted a dovish approach to Pyongyang and brokered the US-North Korea talks process, urged his officials to find out what exactly had gone awry at the high-stakes meeting, and predicted a deal would ultimately be reached.
In an appearance on CBS News' "Face the Nation", Bolton said there is "no expiration date" for talks on denuclearization.
"I don't think the leverage gets reduced because I think we will keep the maximum pressure campaign in place even before the summit", the USA national security advisor said.
"I disagreed with it when they offered that up the last go around and got nothing for it, and now we will get nothing for it again", he said and added that no matter how the Trump administration spins things, Kim Jong-un will view this as a "minor victory" for himself.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., a close Trump ally, broke with the president.
"This is, I think, the result of a president who is not prepared for these kinds of negotiations, a staff that is not well-prepared and is essentially flying by the seat of its trousers".
Trump claimed Thursday that North Korea was "not ready" to meet the United States' conditions in order to reduce the sanctions imposed on the country. Kim will be able to portray himself to his people and supporters as the charismatic head of a nuclear-armed power, not an worldwide pariah that starves its citizens so it can build weapons.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, took issue with Bolton's response.
"... The president held firm to his view".
Earlier in the interview, Bolton said President Trump "made it very clear" what happened to Warmbier is "an act of brutality that's completely unacceptable to the American side". But his call for partial sanctions relief to encourage nuclear disarmament steps by North Korea has caused disagreements with Washington, which does not want to give up what it sees as its main leverage with the North.
On Monday night, Trump also dismissed the idea that he discussed curbing joint U.S. -Republic of Korea (ROK) military drills during his summit with Kim.
