We start with the latest on President Trump cancelling the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that had been set for June 12 in Singapore, following "tremendous anger and open hostility" from the North. Also, you might have noticed the sesame seed condiment tahini popping up a lot more often on supermarket shelves and in recipes lately. Here & Now resident chef Kathy Gunst joins host Jeremy Hobson to explain what tahini is, and share recipes that showcase its versatile flavor. And we talk with a former Washington Post bureau chief in Beijing about Trump's unorthodox diplomatic relationship with China, amid ongoing trade and tariff tensions between the two countries. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's May 24, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook and Tumblr.
