President Trump: We Aren't Restarting Military Exercises With South Korea...Yet

President Trump announced Wednesday afternoon the joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea will continue to be suspended as denclearization talks with North Korea continue. It was announced earlier in the week by Secretary of Defense James Mattis that the exercises would resume.

Taking to Twitter, President Trump pointed directly at China as the source for stalled progress after the summit in Singapore.

Late last week, President Trump directed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to cancel an upcoming trip to North Korea, but left the door open for future discussions.
