Back on April 24, I warned that Kim Jong Un was a real-life "Goodfella" – a mobster who operates as though the rules don't apply to him.
And that made me extremely skeptical that Trump and Kim would even meet in a room anywhere, let alone reach some kind of meaningful agreement on the status of North Korea's nuclear weapons program.
Then on May 24, exactly a month after we issued our warning, Trump canceled the summit scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.
