WOTC - Failure of second Trump Kim summit

I asked this question in the Wisdom of the Crowd:

What are your views about the failure of the second Trump Kim Summit?

Here are the responses: (47 Votes)
64 % - The summit should not be held without adequate preparation and prior understanding.
13 % - Kim was unreasonable in insisting on withdrawal of sanctions.
13 % - It is unfair to the host country which had put in a lot of effort for the summit.
11 % - It is irresponsible for Trump to walk out just like that.

People dun understand that the second summit is part of a great strategy to rein in NK's ambitious nuclear policy together with China/US trade dispute.
Trump knows fully well he and US can't push Kim to denuclearize at all, the card is in Chinese hands, only China could. NK depends on China on many necessities to survive, if only China could seriously hold back, NK' economy would come to a standstill. Those who visited NK would experience the oil shortage in their hotel building, only the occupied tourist floors were lighted, the rest of the floors were in darkness.
Trump hoping China would step in to push NK with real economic sanctions, in exchange for the trade settlement. When Trump found out China is just a bystander, he abruptly walked out. No deal.
Even the venue for the 2nd summit was carefully chosen, in Hanoi, Trump wants NK to be another Vietnam, the latter now becoming more capitalist than Communist. If NK opens up like Vietnam, NK economy will boom and people would be happy, and less attention devoted in pursuit of nuclear policy, lessening US worry that Kim would export nuclear tech to rogue countries like Iran to get funding.
US is lucky to have a high IQ President, Donald Trump, able to borrow another person's knife to kill somebody.
But Xi Xinping is not a fool, he needs NK to control US, so the trade dispute would drag on, and Singapore is suffering now. Our economy is really very bad now, e.g. IT businesses in Singapore now depending on overseas orders, local orders has been drying up since last quarter of 2018.
