Trump Slams Former Presidents Clinton, Obama While Discussing North Korea Policy

ECONOMY Planned fiscal stimulus from Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress could pose an "upside risk" to the US economy, Kansas City Federal Reserve President Esther George says, adding she is not yet forecasting it will materialize.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration has been stepping up the rhetoric over North Korea, with the president pressing China to resolve what it says is a urgent threat from Pyongyang.

A missile test by North Korea failed Saturday, the latest in a series of provocations. "Mr. Trump, the vice president and others have all made a series of really ominous statements that would seem to indicate we're on the cusp of some kind of military action".

"I don't want to comment on it", Trump told "Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt at Monday's White House Easter Egg Roll.

"North Korea is going to overshadow his first two stops; he will be wanting to explain to both our allies the perimeters of the recently completed trump policy on North Korea". Democrat Jon Ossoff leads a field of 18 candidates in Tuesday's election for the Georgia congressional seat vacated by Trump's health secretary, and a win by the political novice in a reliably Republican district could spell trouble for the Republican president. Experts have referred to this approach as "bigger carrot, bigger stick" (Korea National Strategy Institute director Kim Chang-soo) or "the hammer and the steak" (Institute for National Security Strategy supervising research fellow Cho Seong-ryoul). But, Kim, North Korea's current leader took power during Obama's tenure in 2011 after his father died. "I hope there's going to be peace, but they've been talking with this gentleman for a long time". "And we'll see what happens".

King told CNBC on Tuesday that, instead, Japan will certainly support the USA against North Korea. Everybody has been outplayed, they've all been outplayed by this gentleman and we'll see what happens. In contrast with his presidential campaign a year ago, Trump has avoided using taboo labels like "crazy" to describe North Korean leader Kim Jong-un since taking office. "I just don't telegraph my moves".
