Congressional leaders — including Democrats — broadly praised President Donald Trump for walking away from his second summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Thursday.

Talks in Vietnam between Trump and Kim abruptly ended Thursday before a planned lunch and signing ceremony for some kind of agreement. Trump said he cut the summit short because the sides could not come to terms on whether to remove sanctions on North Korea as they seek a path to Pyongyang’s denuclearization.

“Sometimes you have to walk, and this was just one of those times,” the U.S. president said during a news conference following the summit.
