In a scathing letter to Kim Jong Un, President Trump pulled out of his meeting with North Korea — social media hit back just as hard.

President Trump's letter to Kim Jong Un, announcing the US would be pulling out of its long-awaited summit with North Korea, has been dragged on social media.

The letter, tweeted by the US President early yesterday morning, informed the North Korean leader the June 12 Singapore summit would be "inappropriate".

Aside from the backlash Mr Trump has received for withdrawing his support for the summit, the US President is also getting mocked for his grammar skills.

A number of Twitter users have printed out the White House letter and taken it upon themselves to grade it — covering the one-page text with red pen.

Ryan Sheffield, who gave the president an F for his grammar, told Mr Trump he should probably "see me after class".

"You will not pass this class if you don't show some improvement very soon," he wrote.

Mr Sheffield even mocked the president's gigantic signature.

"Signature doesn't need to be so big, it covers the text," he wrote.

Mr Sheffield also said there were parts of the letter that "didn't make any sense".

Michael Stone offered his services as an editor to the White House until they hired a permanent one, encouraging Mr Trump to "try a thesaurus".

Michelle Huete also marked up the president's letter, deciding to give Mr Trump a D for his efforts.

"We were informed that the meeting was requested by North Korea, but that to us is totally irrelevant," Mr Trump wrote.

To that sentence, Ms Huete questioned: "If it's irrelevant, why mention it at all?"

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel didn't grade the letter, but he did declare it was the nuclear equivalent of "you break up with me, I break up with you".

"Only Donald Trump could cancel a summit with Kim Jong Un in the morning and then have a meeting with Sylvester Stallone later in the day," Kimmel said. "Soak it up: we'll probably never see anything like this again.

"The president cancelled his June 12 meeting with Kim Jong Un today after North Korea's vice-minister of foreign affairs called Mike Pence a dummy, which did not sit well with one Donald Janice Trump," he added.

"It was the nuclear non-proliferation equivalent of 'you break up with me, I break up with you.'"

Despite the release of the letter, it appears Mr Trump may have backflipped on his decision to not attend the summit.

Earlier today, the US President told reporters "everybody plays games", suggesting his potentially historic North Korean summit he had suddenly called off might be getting back on track.

Mr Trump welcomed the North's conciliatory response to his Thursday letter withdrawing from the Singapore summit with Kim Jong Un. He even said it was possible the meeting could take place on the originally planned June 12 date.

"They very much want to do it; we'd like to do it," he said.

Later Friday, Mr Trump tweeted that the two countries were "having very productive talks."


Asked Friday if the North Koreans were playing games with their communications, Mr Trump responded: "Everybody plays games. You know that better than anybody."

The US and North Korea do not have formal diplomatic relations, complicating the task of communicating between the two governments.
