Politicians and political pundits are reacting to the North Korea nuclear summit cancellation with a mix of support and skepticism.

The White House released a copy of a letter President Donald Trump sent to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Thursday morning that announced the June 12 summit in Singapore was canceled. Reaction to the news came quickly.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo happened to appear in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Thursday morning. He revealed that another reason for the summit's cancellation was that North Korea had not responded to multiple requests for information regarding logistics for the summit.

"We had received no response to our inquiries from them," Pompeo said.

Attorney Alan Dershowitz told Fox News, "This is playing into Donald Trump's strong suite. He knows how to make a deal, he knows how to walk away from the table, he knows how to offer to come back rot the table … Remember, we have most of the cards in this negotiation, and I think the president's playing them well."

In another Fox interview, Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., pointed to a statement put out by a member of North Korea's leadership.

"Obviously, the statement from North Korea made it clear to the president at this time [the summit] served no purpose," King said. "I think this is, as they say in baseball, a long season. I don't think it's over."
