At the Thursday meeting, Trump reiterated his administration's opposition to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying the US would not "allow this dictatorship to threaten our nation or allies with unimaginable loss of life".

In the interim, financial markets have been jolted by Trump, and not for the first time, writes Newsday's Dan Janison.

Trump tweeted earlier in the day that the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is continuing to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election, should instead focus its efforts on "looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country".

India succumb to 1-2 defeat against Colombia
India had taken one shot off-target while Colombia took five. "I expect Colombia to be very, very strong", he later added. The Twitter users exploded in jubilation on his goal and gave the young player a hero's welcome.

Tillerson took the unusual step of holding a press conference on Wednesday to address a NBC News story that claimed he had called Trump a "moron" and that Vice President Pence had to plead with him not to leave the Cabinet. And Sanders knows this, but she has a job to do. "He has an incredible team around him that's helping him lead that effort, and he's had tremendous accomplishments on the worldwide stage by working with allies and confronting enemies". "A lot of times you have opinions that are being presented as news, and they're not".

"There are other people within the administration, in my belief, that don't", he added. When pressed as to what he meant, especially given the problems with North Korea and rumors he will decertify the Iran nuclear agreement, the president would only say, "You'll find out".

Trump's decision would have little impact in and of itself, but the Republican controlled Congress could decide, within 60 days, to impose sanctions, or simply not respond. The Trump administration will also outline what steps would make the deal more palatable.

"Oh, I just pictured people in this town actually holding their breath", Sanders replied.

Meanwhile, FEMA's website has altered its statistics page on Puerto Rico to no longer show data on the millions still without running water and electric power, The Washington Post reported.

Mike Pence Leaves Colts Game After Several 49ers Players Kneel During Anthem
Just like that friend that calls you with a fake emergency to get you out of a bad date. I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country.
