H4 us south korea war games cancelled

The U.S. and South Korea have canceled joint military exercises on the Korean Peninsula scheduled for August, a week after President Trump vowed to end the United States’ “provocative war games” during his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Kim Jong-un is traveling to China to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping, in his third trip to China so far this year. Meanwhile, President Trump has threatened to impose tariffs on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, escalating the threat of a trade war between the U.S. and China and sending stock markets tumbling.
