Amid President Trump cancelling the highly anticipated summit in Singapore, James Toole, an associate professor of political science from IPFW, weighed in.

Toole fears Trump's decision to cancel the meeting may result in an even more volatile relationship with North Korea, but believes it's a move to shake things up.

"You don't go into talks with North Korea, expecting North Korea to be polite," says Toole. "So, calling off the talks because North Korea was rude is sort of unrealistic. I mean,if you didn't expect that to happen, you shouldn't be in the business of talking with North Korea."
