Entire US Senate to go to White House for North Korea briefing

Entire US Senate to go to White House for North Korea briefing

U.S. President Donald Trump (R) speaks next to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during a bilateral meeting with China's President Xi Jinping (Not Pictured) at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., April 7, 2017. "We feel very confident that they understand the President's priorities and that we'll come to an agreement by the end of Friday", Spicer said.

Spicer's first three months in the job have been marred by missteps, misstatements and controversies.

There are concerns Pyongyang, in conjunction with the anniversary, will demonstrate a show of force by possibly firing more ballistic missiles or conducting its sixth nuclear test. "I hope this president will say that's a non-starter", Graham said.

"That guy gets great ratings".

"Everyone", it turns out, includes Spicer's predecessor. The Trump administration could be using this briefing as an attempt to distract from their many other problems, but it is probable that this briefing is the next step in the administration laying the groundwork for a strike or operation against North Korea.

"I get it, but I've said it from the day that I got here until whatever, that there is no connection", he said, disavowing any solid connection to Russian Federation. Angus King, a ME independent who caucuses with Democrats, on Capitol Hill Tuesday. "That's what makes our approaches so different".

Spicer is known to state comments that have been controversially received by the press attending the press briefings as well as multiple gaffes.




"Sean's not the victim of a bait and switch".

Trump's spokesman also mounted a vigorous defense of the president's first 100 days, despite the fact that just one of the 10 bills he promised to send to Congress in his 100-day pledge to voters had actually been submitted.

Senate aides were unsure of the goal of using the White House as a venue, speculating it could be symbolic and meant to show Mr Trump's seriousness or to showcase an assertive president as he approaches 100 days in office. "Sean worked for the Trump campaign and the [Republican National Committee] and the transition". "He knew what he was getting into".

One White House correspondent told the magazine that a Trump transition team official warned him to be wary of White House aides speaking on background.

Earnest expressed his gratitude at having been part of a cohesive and supportive team in the Obama administration. While he has discussed Trump's time in office, he has mostly steered clear of critiquing his successor.

Garrett started to ask a question, and Spicer looked irritated.
