House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic lawmakers roundly mocked President Trump for pulling out of a planned face-to-face meeting with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un.

In a letter addressed to Kim, Trump said the June 12 summit in Singapore would be "inappropriate," pointing to "hostility" from Pyongyang in recent weeks.

Pelosi (D-Calif.) said during her weekly press conference that Trump's decision to cancel the meeting is a "good thing" for Kim.

“He got global recognition and regard. He’s the big winner. And when he got this letter from the president saying, ‘OK, never mind,’ he must be having a giggle fit right now in North Korea,” Pelosi said.

Meantime, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) tweeted that the Nobel Peace Prize some speculated Trump could receive for helping denuclearize the Korean Peninsula "will have to wait."

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) tweeted that "the art of diplomacy is a lot harder than the art of the deal," adding he was amazed that the administration was surprised at North Korea's behavior.

And Rep. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) tweeted that National Security Adviser John Bolton "must be stoked," and "this is what happens when amateurs are combined with warmongers."

Other Democrats expressed concern that the chances of a military confrontation are increasing after today's action.
