No deal. The U.S. and DPRK walk away from the negotiating table after talks between the two leaders break down in Hanoi.

President Trump said a disagreement over sanctions was the deal breaker.

The DPRK, however, is disputing Trump’s explanation for why the summit in Hanoi collapsed.

Pyongyang and Washington clearly not on the same page.
