U.S. stock benchmarks traded lower in early Thursday action after President Donald Trump canceled a planned meeting with North Korea. In a letter released by the White House, Trump told North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that the summit "will not take place." The president added that "tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement," was behind the cancellation. In the letter Trump said "you talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used." The Dow Jones Industrial Average , most recently, was off 170 points, or 0.7%, at 24,714, the S&P 500 index sank 0.5% at 2,720, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated by 0.4% at 7,395.
In a classic Donald Trump move, the president wrote a letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to cancel their planned meeting in Singapore next month. Trump wrote, “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it would be inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.” This meeting was seen as an unprecedented attempt to dissolve tensions between the United States and North Korea, which could have reduced geopolitical risks. The SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD), which tracks physical gold, on the other hand, was trading up 1.03%.
