White House fails to explain Trump's 'calm before the storm' comment

White House fails to explain Trump's 'calm before the storm' comment

Trump has until October 15 to certify Iran is in compliance with the landmark accord, and that the deal is in the U.S.' national security interest.

Could US President Donald Trump just have been "messing" with the press when he shot off the mysterious "calm before the storm" comment?

"And we're going to have a great evening".

"He certainly doesn't want to lay out his game plan for our enemies", Sanders said.

The president on Thursday also had tough words for Iran, saying the country had not lived up to the spirit of an agreement forged with world powers to curb its nuclear program.

"I think Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis and chief of staff Kelly are those people that help separate our country from chaos, and I support them very much", he said.

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 didn't clarify the remark, which some speculated could refer to either action against North Korea's nuclear weapons program or a withdrawal from the Iran nuclear pact.

Trump's original remarks - against a surreal backdrop of soft classical music - sent diplomats across Washington rushing to find out if military action was afoot.

That prompted White House budget director Mick Mulvaney to spell out in black and white that there was no bail out in the works for Puerto Rico.

He said in another one of his Twitter rants that "only one thing will work" when it comes to dealing with North Korea.

'We can not allow this dictatorship to threaten our nation or our allies with unimaginable loss of life. "With the First Amendment, with those freedoms also come responsibilities, and you have a responsibility, to tell the truth, to be accurate".
