"I didn't trust North Korea then; I don't trust him [Kim] now", Rep. King told Fox News' "America's Newsroom," when asked what he thought the country and its leaders would do after the Hanoi summit between President Donald Trump and Kim ended without an agreement.
North Korean state media said for the first time on Friday that the summit made no advances and its people were blaming the USA for the lack of an agreement.
"The public at home and overseas that had hoped for success and good results from the second. summit in Hanoi are feeling regretful, blaming the USA for the summit that ended without an agreement", its Rodong Sinmun newspaper said.
USA analysts say North Korea appears to have restored normal operations at a long-range rocket launch site it partially dismantled past year as part of disarmament steps.
Following President Donald Trump's stalemate talks with Kim Jong-Un, it appears North Korea may be preparing to launch a missile or rocket some time soon.
The failed talks with Trump raised new questions about Kim's strategy for coping with the global sanctions squeezing his country.
Trump abruptly ended the summit with Kim last week in Hanoi, Vietnam after refusing to comply with the North's demands of lifting all sanctions.

Ahead of the summit in Vietnam's capital of Hanoi, a rift opened within Moon's administration over how to advance Korean ties without undercutting global sanctions and the alliance with the United States. The official was not authorized to speak publicly to the state of negotiations with the North Koreans and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The images, which were released to the US's National Public Radio, also showed activity at North Korea's Sohae site which has been the scene of satellite launches in recent years. For now, discussions with North Korea will be conducted by their subordinates.
The US State Department has declined to comment on the development. While the US and South Korea have canceled their annual large-scale war games, Washington is poised to consider strengthening its sanctions on Pyongyang unless progress is made on denuclearization. The U.S. wanted more action by Pyongyang on hidden nuclear facilities, as well as warheads and intercontinental ballistic missiles that could deliver them to the American mainland.
The following day Rodong Sinmun, the North's state-run newspaper, carried a front-page picture that showed Kim and Trump shaking hands.
A staunch backer of Korean reconciliation, Kim was a North Korea studies professor and adviser to a previous administration in which Moon also served.
In a new breach, three South Korean companies were found to have brought in more than 13,000 tons of North Korean coal, worth 2.1 billion won ($2 million) since 2017, South Korea said. "We need the North Korean negotiators to have much more latitude than they did in the run-up to the summit on denuclearisation, but I am confident that if they get that direction from the top of the North Korean government, we can make quick progress with them", he said. We don't know why they're taking these step.
