Will take care, says Donald Trump on North Korea missile

Will take care, says Donald Trump on North Korea missile

The Democrats and most of the news media will work hard to present any looming or actual shutdown as President Trump's and the Republicans' fault. "It is a situation that we will handle", he said. But defense secretary Jim Mattis said the missile went higher than ever before and was a step toward North Korea building missiles that can "threaten everywhere in the world, basically".

The ICBM is believed to have flown a relatively modest 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) from North Korea, before splashing down harmlessly in the Sea of Japan.

"Kim Jong-Un declared with pride that now we have finally realised the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force, the cause of building a rocket power", she said. "We remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies from any attack or provocation".

Schumer said: "With his tweet this morning, the president made sure that the meeting is nothing but a photo-op".

In an earlier statement, the two Democratic leaders said that instead of meeting the president, they meant to negotiate directly with their Republican counterparts in an attempt to avert a government shutdown next month.

Pelosi and Schumer will try to meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell and House Speaker Paul Ryan in the afternoon they said

The president met with Senate Republicans about tax reform earlier Tuesday, telling reporters it was "somewhat of a love-fest" and "phenomenal", and noting he thinks the Senate tax plan will pass. McConnell and Ryan were with Trump when he spoke to reporters on Tuesday afternoon, flanked by empty chairs representing the absent Schumer and Pelosi. Lawmakers would like to pass a spending measure to fund the government through the rest of the 2018 fiscal year, which goes through September 30.

Democratic leaders in Congress skipped a meeting with President Donald Trump on Tuesday that was to have focused on the budget, raising the risk of a government shutdown next month with both sides far apart on the terms of an agreement. "They're weak on crime, they're weak on illegal immigration, they want the illegal folks to come pouring into our border - and a lot of problems are being caused, although we've stopped it to a large extent, as much as you can without the wall, which we're going to get". "I don't see a deal!" he said.

G. William Hoagland, a former Republican staff director for the Senate Budget Committee, warned, "When Republicans control the House and Senate and the White House, a government shutdown under their watch just looks like they can absolutely do nothing".

But Trump's allies welcome the comparisons to Warren, a liberal icon in a party grappling with a leadership vacuum and still searching for the best way to counter the president. Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas" since last year's presidential campaign and he reignited the feud with a passing comment during a White House ceremony on Monday honoring Native Americans. Mr. Trump voiced support for legislation to fund subsidies to health insurers that he had cut off, as well as another bipartisan health care measure that could lower insurance premiums under the Affordable Care Act.
