Trump administration officials urged furious Tillerson not to quit

Trump lets NRA, GOP take the lead on 'bump stock' restrictions

In the state dining room, this is the image president trump summoned reporters to see - the president smiling, surrounded by his top military leaders and their spouses.

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

"We're never going to say in advance what the president's going to do", Sanders told reporters.

Washington Post White House correspondent Ashley Parker said that people should push past Trump's smoke screen of words and watch "what he actually decides".

It is unclear what the president expects as far as toughness is concerned, but Trump has stated repeatedly that there is no point in talking to North Korea, something Tillerson has been working towards since he took office as secretary of state.

Everyone has their opinion on Donald Trump, and that's fair, but for the most part we just have to sit tight and accept that he is president. He knows that it's too late to stop North Korea from getting them, but he also knows that it is still possible to stop Iran from doing the same.

India win toss, elect to field in first T20I match against Australia
Indian bowlers performed in unison as Australia were restricted to a meagre 118 for 8 when rain stopped play after 18.4 overs. Stand-in skipper David Warner made eight, while the injured Steve Smith ran the drinks and will return to Australia on Sunday.

Trump has suggested before that he would be open to negotiating with Democrats on health care, but there have been no clear signs of a compromise between Republicans who have sought to scrap President Barack Obama's law and Democrats who want to protect it. "He loves the notion of 'Tune in next week for the next exciting installation of 'The White House, ' an ongoing reality show and national psychodrama'".

Tillerson reportedly considered resigning amid friction with the president, even calling Trump a "moron", according to NBC News.

Last week, he described the current period as the "calm before the storm," without elaborating. O'Brien said that Trump is first and foremost an entertainer - and one who is always engaging in performance art.

Moments later, Trump said, "You'll find out".

"The places I come from, we don't deal with that kind of petty nonsense, and it's meant to do nothing but divide people", he said. A Blue House source said on October 8 that Seoul continued viewing military activities relating to North Korea's missile launch as "motion amid general calmness", but added that it was "closely watching for the possibility of a provocation between the 11th anniversary of [North Korea's] first nuclear test on Oct.9 and the Workers' Party anniversary on October 10, given Pyongyang's history of provocations around major commemorative days".
