Putin Says North Korea's Kim 'Won This Match' on Nuclear Weapons

Once the briefing had concluded, President Trump asked the person who briefed him, a career intelligence analyst who also is an expert in hostage policy, a question.

Putin's unusually warm words for the secretive leader came after North and South Korean officials held their first direct talks in more than two years on Tuesday, as diplomatic efforts continue to try to defuse tensions over Kim's nuclear program.

"These officials feared that the US was already trying to shape the battlefield for a military operation against the North, and that South Koreans do not seem to have grasped the reality that the Trump administration is set on a course for preventive war", Vorontsov wrote.

Trump persisted and asked the question again, with the staffer repeating that she, like Trump himself, was also from Manhattan in NY. But that's not what the president was after.

Amid ongoing national and worldwide condemnation for his remarks about "shithole" African nations, Donald Trump has come under fire yet again after details emerged about an intelligence briefing in which he asked why a "pretty Korean lady" wasn't working on negotiations with North Korea. It's just another day in the Trump White House. MSNBC recently ran a compilation video of Trump talking about people he's hiring, and in each instance says they look like they're from "central casting". But NBC cited two officials with knowledge of what took place who said Trump was really asking the woman where "your people" are from.

During that same meeting, a member relayed to Trump that potential welfare cuts would harm her constituents, "not all of whom are black". "Then what are they?"
