To recap: on Thursday night, the White House press pool was unexpectedly called to witness a photo op with President Trump, various military officials, and their spouses, who were attending a dinner.

"Nothing has changed despite what you may read in the media or watch on TV".

Sophisticated traders of distressed debt know all too well that the president does not have the power to wipe out the island's debt and there is no appetite for a bailout, one investment adviser said.

Shortly before his ominous remark Thursday evening, Trump had said, "We can not allow [North Korea's] dictatorship to threaten our nation or allies with unimaginable loss of life", and vowed to "do what we must do to prevent that from happening and it will be done, if necessary".

Trump in a series of tweets on Sunday also appeared to at Tillerson for looking to engage in direct talks with his North Korean counterparts.

President Trump on Saturday denied a frayed relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson but said he sometimes wishes the country's top diplomat would be "tougher". "ISIS? North Korea? Iran?" "Maybe it's the calm before the storm". "Right now, actually, we're working on a plan that everyone says will never work because for many, many years, it's never worked".

The White House also did not respond to questions on Pakistan, in particular the meeting that visiting Pakistan Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif had with the National Security Advisor H R McMaster. He also found time to take a slap at NBC, accusing it of writing "fake news" over its Tillerson stories. "Have you guys seen any change in Pakistani behaviour in those six weeks?" she was asked.

The president tweeted that he called New York Sen. Ever the showman, our president (nothing but respect) told them to stay tuned, because you're about to find out what happens next!

At a reception Thursday at the White House, he had already had a sentence evasive, not to mention anything else: "It may well be the calm before the storm ". "I think we have some serious world issues here. I don't think it's responsible, I don't think presidents ought to do it, but I think in this instance, we probably all should take a deep breath and try to assume that he's just making a play for attention".
