We begin with some strong remarks coming out of North Korea.
The regime says it's no longer interested in what it's calling "useless" dialogue with the U.S.
This came from Kim Kye-gwan, an advisor to the North's foreign ministry, who issued a statement earlier today.
Mentioning President Trump's tweet on Sunday, Kim said it seemed to call for another summit between the leaders, but that's something he said Pyeongyang isn't interested in anymore.
He stressed that without getting anything in return, Pyeongyang won't give things away just so Trump can have something to brag about.
He added that Washington will have to give up what he called its hostile policies towards the regime if it wants to keep dialogue going.
