Jeff Gianola and KOIN 6 News Staff PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) On President Trump’s 100th day in office, “Face The Nation” host John Dickerson interviewed him about his presidency thus far
“It is good to take stock at different moments. The president himself said he would have things done by that (100 day) period,” Dickerson told KOIN 6 News on Friday. “It is useful. In terms of other presidents, if you’re going to compare yourself to FDR, you’ll never win. You don’t have that kind of emergency behind you.
“President Obama had that kind of emergency,” Dickerson said, “and was able to get his stimulus package through and was on his way towards getting health care through. President Bush was also on his way to achievements, as well.
“It is not good on the legislative front for President Trump. He got somebody on the Supreme Court,” but his legislative achievements are a “mixed bag” and Trump is “quite unpopular by historic standards.”
The interview with President Trump on Face The NationSEOUL, South Korea (AP) President Donald Trump said after North Korea’s latest failed rocket launch that communist leader Kim Jong Un will eventually develop better missiles, and “we can’t allow it to happen.”
In a taped interview broadcast Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” the president would not discuss the possibility of military action, saying: “It is a chess game. I just don’t want people to know what my thinking is.”
Separately, Trump’s national security adviser, Army Lt. Gen. and its Asian allies, but also to China.
Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” McMaster said it is important “for all of us to confront this regime, this regime that is pursuing the weaponization of a missile with a nuclear weapon.”
“This is something that we know we cannot tolerate,” McMaster said.
On Saturday, a North Korean mid range ballistic missile broke up a few minutes after launch, the third test fire flop this month. mainland.
In the CBS interview, the president was asked about why the North’s rockets keep blowing up.
“I’d rather not discuss it,” he said. “But perhaps they’re just not very good missiles. But eventually, he’ll have good missiles.”
He added: “And if that happens, we can’t allow it to happen.”
Trump also called North Korea’s leader “a pretty smart cookie” for being able to hold onto power after taking over at a young age. “People are saying, ‘Is he sane?’ I have no idea,” the president said.
McMaster said that as far as North Korea’s nuclear ambitions are concerned, Trump “has made clear that he is going to resolve this issue one way or the other,” but the president’s preference is to work with China and others to resolve it without military action. sanctions and perhaps ratcheting them up. “And it also means being prepared for military operations if necessary,” he said.
Trump said he believes China’s president, Xi Jinping, has been putting pressure on North Korea over its missile and nuclear weapons programs.
The launch comes at a point of particularly high tension in the region. Trump has sent a nuclear powered submarine and an aircraft carrier to Korean waters. and South Korea also started installing a missile defense system that is supposed to be partially operational within days.
The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, or THAAD, is controversial in South Korea, and presidential front runner Moon Jae in has vowed to reconsider the deployment if he wins the May 9 election.
He has said that the security benefits of THAAD would be offset by worsened relations with China, which is the country’s biggest trading partner and is opposed to its deployment.
Trump raised eyebrows in South Korea last week when he said would make Seoul pay $1 billion for the missile defense system. McMaster said Sunday that the matter is subject to negotiation.
