Tensions rise after Trump talks of 'calm before storm'

"Tell us", one reporter said.

It will not be aimed at one facet of Iranian policy, but many, including Iranian support for extremist groups in the Middle East, its ballistic missile tests and its online operations, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary said.

After being continuously pressed to clarify his comments, Trump later told reporters, "You'll find out". Do you mind if I shake hands?

The cash-strapped island's 2035 8% bonds traded down to 32 cents on the dollar last Wednesday, down 12.5 points from the previous day after Trump said the debt had to be wiped out.

The president repeatedly tried to say "Puerto Rico" in what he deemed to be a Spanish accent but which actually turned out to be something entirely alien.

"Were continuing to put maximum economic and diplomatic pressure on countries like North Korea".

"He certainly doesn't want to lay out his game plan for our enemies", Sanders said. Maybe we'll just see another Friday Defenestration today, as the rumors swirl that Trump "seethed" about all the facetime Tillerson is getting on cable news and might replace him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

But she added, "We have a lot of bad actors in the world, North Korea, Iran, several examples there". We can not allow this dictatorship to threaten our country or our allies with unimaginable casualties.

A unilateral US exit from the agreement would likely have undesirable consequences for Washington - isolating it from its negotiating partners that include close European allies, and potentially forcing Washington to sanction them if they continue to keep with the accord's parameters.

Trump has filled top posts within his administration with military generals, including his chief of staff, retired General John Kelly, and national security adviser, Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster.

"I heard you were here".

Trump pointed around the room and asked the assembled reporters, "You guys know what this represents?"
