But Trump says he’ll still insist on the country’s denuclearization.

North Korea on Wednesday threatened to scrap the historic summit next month between Trump and Kim, saying it has no interest in a “one-sided” affair meant to pressure the North to abandon its nuclear weapons.

Trump said Wednesday as he welcomed the president of Uzbekistan to the White House that “We haven’t been notified at all” about the threat.

He adds: “We haven’t seen anything. We haven’t heard anything. We will see what happens.”
