The North abruptly cancelled a planned meeting with South Korean officials over the drills and threatened to pull out of the summit, set for June 12 in Singapore, over the USA insistence on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Trump first downplayed the effect of North Korea's reactions on the planned June 21 summit.
Yet, within the same statement, Trump also issued a veil threat at Kim Jong Un that he would meet a similar fate as Gaddafi if the United States and North Korea don't reach a deal on denuclearization. "In Libya, we decimated that country".
The feasibility of the meeting in Singapore has been in question when North Korea announced Tuesday that they had canceled a meeting between their government and South Korea and were willing to withdraw from the US summit, due to joint U.S.
North Korean officials suddenly cut-off communications with South Korea and threatened to withdraw from the upcoming summit earlier this week; accusing the United States of practicing "invasion" drills during a joint military exercise.

After a few months of rapprochement, North Korea abruptly called off scheduled high-level talks with South Korea on Wednesday and warned the US that a planned summit with President Donald Trump could be at risk.

Pyongyang's rhetoric seems to suggest that it is frustrated by the administration's approach, which treats North Korea as a weak, defeated state, rather than a nuclear power, which is how they see themselves.
"Now, that model would take place if we don't make a deal, most likely", he warned Pyongyang.
Mr Trump said he is "willing to do a lot" to provide security guarantees to Kim. There was no deal to keep Gadhafi. "If it doesn't, we'll go on to the next step".
"We have already stated our intention for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and made clear on several occasions that precondition for denuclearization is to put an end to anti-DPRK hostile policy and nuclear threats and blackmail of the United States", Mr. Kim said. He also held a ceremony at the parliament to celebrate the publication of his new book which is critical of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Trump appeared to soften his stance towards the North Korean leaders as he sounded hopeful of the meeting and sought to dismiss negative reports regarding the fate of the summit. He adds: "Perhaps he doesn't want to do it". North Korea could also be trying to capitalize on an apparent gap in messaging between Bolton and USA secretary of state Mike Pompeo.
