White House hedges Trump's call for Congress to investigate U.S. media outlets

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders points as she begins to take questions from the media during the daily briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House Thursday Oct. 5 2017

"We're going to continue doing that".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders caught hell from reporters during Friday's press briefing when she blandly explained away President Donald Trump's "madman" behavior in foreign policy. "He has an incredible team around him that's helping him lead that effort, and he's had tremendous accomplishments on the worldwide stage by working with allies and confronting enemies".

"He has an incredible team around him that's helping him lead that effort", she added.

Google discovered Russian-bought ads on YouTube and Gmail
The Post reported that Google used data from Twitter to link Russian Twitter accounts with those who had purchased the Google ads. Twitter has also said that it suspended 201 accounts associated with the Internet Research Agency.

Asked again what he meant, Trump replied "you'll find out", and then left for a dinner with military brass and their spouses.

When pressed about Trump's tweets-which appear to be in response to an NBC News article that stated Secretary of State Rex Tillerson considered resigning (something he later refuted) and called him a "moron" (which he didn't deny)-Sanders first tried to explain why Trump tweeted what he did.

Sanders talked right over Reid and said that the San Juan mayor made "zero comments" when President Trump opened the table for discussion during his visit to PR. "Maybe it's the calm before the storm".

Rafael Nadal favourite to win the China Open final in Beijing
Nadal will play Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov who eliminated Roberto Bautista-Agut 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-2 in a tough three-set duel. The 12th-seeded Kvitova will next face either Svitolina or Caroline Garcia in the semifinals.

As at press time President Trump himself was too busy to comment on the issue of gun control as he was busy redoubling his efforts to coordinate the Puerto Rican relief effort from his command post on the ninth tee at Mar-A-Lago. "So, I think we're quickly coming up to speed with what this is. He's been very clear that that's his number one priority, and if he feels action is necessary, he will take it".

Tension between Trump and Tillerson resurfaced over the weekend when the secretary of state said during a trip to China that the US was in direct communication with North Korea, which has ramped up its nuclear device and missile testing in recent months.

"Look, as the secretary of state said, this is a petty, ridiculous accusation, and frankly, I think it's beneath the secretary of state to weigh in on every rumor out there", Sanders said.
