All 100 United States senators to meet for North Korea briefing

Top Trump administration officials will hold a rare briefing on Wednesday at the White House for the entire U.S. Senate on the situation in North Korea, senior Senate aides said on Monday.

The image of senators meeting with Trump at the White House on a top national security concern could be touted by the White House as a key moment in the run-up to Trump's 100th day in office - a milestone that the president has mocked in recent days but that his administration is working aggressively to promote.

"Armenpress" reports during the daily briefing at the White House, answering the question why President Trump did not use the word "genocide" when describing the events of 1915, Spicer mentioned that the statement was in line with the statements issued by the previous administrations.

Chinese imports from North Korea fell 35 percent month-on-month in March, according to official figures released Tuesday, after Beijing suspended coal purchases to punish its nuclear-armed neighbour for missile tests.

Spicer has become known for his combative nature during his briefings for the White House press corps, which are often covered live on C-SPAN and other cable news networks.

Jeff Sessions Won't Apologize For Offending The Entire State Of Hawaii
Attorney General Jeff Sessions will meet with Austin Mayor Steve Adler and other USA mayors this week to discuss the definition of " sanctuary city ".

The meeting was set for one day after a North Korean holiday on Tuesday marking the 85th anniversary of the founding of its army.

When it comes to the truth, White House staffers rarely want anything to do with it.

He called the country "a real threat to the world".

Doing so, of course, comes with a huge price, as while the USA has downplayed North Korea's ability to retaliate with nuclear weapons, they have a substantial conventional weapons program developed for decades specifically to respond to just such an incident.

At least two other USA citizens are also in custody in North Korea.

He told ESPN FC that he is happy to be alive but he felt like an "animal" for going through what they went through. But Tuchel claimed the club was informed of UEFA's decision by text message and they were left feeling powerless.

The unusual briefing underlines the urgency with which the Mr Trump administration is treating the threat posed by Pyongyang's continuing development of nuclear weapons and missile technology.

22 April: US Vice-President Mike Pence says the group will arrive off the Korean peninsula "within days".

North Korea on Sunday threatened to sink an American aircraft carrier, which had begun joint drills with two Japanese destroyers in the western Pacific Ocean, in a demonstration of its military might.

U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said the U.S. is not seeking a fight with North Korea and would not attack "unless he (North Korean leader Kim Jong-un) gives us reason to do something". "And if China and North Korea both believe that President Trump will never allow that to happen, then you have a chance to peacefully solve this", he said.

Could this administration be making a case for a war in North Korea? China has expressed fears that President Donald Trump could decide unilaterally to launch an attack against North Korea to thwart Kim Jong-Un's nuclear ambition. "The same can be said of the US", a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman said in the statement.

On Holocaust day, Netanyahu says its lessons guide him
One of Trump's closest advisors is son-in-law Jared Kushner, the Orthodox Jewish grandson of Holocaust survivors. This is a sacred obligation that the Jewish people can not and does not wish to evade.
