Only One Thing Will Work: Trump on North Korea Solution

US President Donald Trump said on Saturday he would be open to a one- or two-year deal as a way to reform the nation's healthcare system, as his administration and the Republican Party have vowed to do.

The crowd of Hispanic leaders who were gathered in the East Room of the White House laughed at Trump as he said that, while cheering and supporting his comments on a recovering Puerto Rico.

Trump's accent got laughs from the crowd of Hispanic leaders, reports The Associated Press. The President's eldest daughter and a top adviser, Ivanka Trump, said "our collective hearts are breaking for the victims and their families".

Trump's spokespeople were asked again and again: What storm?

A senior administration official said on Thursday that Trump was expected to announce soon he would decertify the landmark agreement.

The Pentagon referred a question for clarification to the White House and said the Defense Department's job was to "present the president military options and carry out orders".

"What storm Mr. President?" one reporter shouted. Trump said gesturing to the commanders surrounding him as he made looping motions with his right index finger.

It's not the first the time Trump has spoken out about previous USA policy regarding North Korea.

During a visit to storm-ravaged Puerto Rico with her husband, Mrs. Trump told Puerto Rico's non-voting representative in Congress that she was "passionate" about trying to help more communities on the island and asked how she might be able to do that, according to Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón.

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".

The United States is now in a diplomatic crisis with North Korea - one in which both nation's leaders have threatened the other's country with annihilation.

Trump's "zigzag" approach to foreign policy has similarities to President Richard Nixon's infamous "madman theory", in which Nixon pretended to be insane enough to launch a nuclear strike against North Vietnam in a ploy to gain concessions from Hanoi and its allies during the Vietnam War. White House trial balloons indicate he'll refuse to do so, but what else he may do is the subject of much speculation.

He went on to add that the states should do that via block-granting, saying that is a very good concept.

On this week's episode of So You Think You Can President? we're left with a cliffhanger.
