Trump Said He's 'Not Surprised' Democratic Leaders Bailed On Meeting

Trump Said He's 'Not Surprised' Democratic Leaders Bailed On Meeting

According to Mattis, South Korea has launched pinpoint missiles out into the water in response, "to make sure that North Korea understands that they could be taken under fire by our ally", said the general. "It is a situation that we will handle", he said.

"North Korea launched an Intercontinental ballistic missile, which flew higher than the previous one", - said the head of the defence Department of the USA.

But despite the increased capability since North Korea's last launch-when a missile traveled for 50 minutes and approximately 620 miles in September-Wright didn't believe the latest missile could cover the same distance with a nuclear payload.

The intercontinental ballistic missile flew about 54 minutes along a high-arcing path and reached a maximum altitude almost 2,800 miles-10 times higher than the International Space Station satellite that orbits the Earth, according to the South Korean news agency Yonhap. "We had a phenomenal meeting with the Republican senators", he said. "We remain prepared to defend ourselves and our allies from any attack or provocation".

"If the President reverses course and decides he wants to be a constructive force...we're happy to meet with him anytime, anywhere, anyplace", Schumer told reporters on Tuesday.

The Democratic leaders, Senator Chuck Schumer of NY and Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, responded to the president's provocations by pulling out of a scheduled White House meeting meant to address the thorny issues that lawmakers are facing as the end of the year approaches.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on November 28 said Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are showing a "lack of seriousness" by declining to attend a meeting with President Trump.

Their attempt to divide and conquer failed, though, after Republican leaders stuck by Mr. Trump and attended the meeting at the White House anyway, saying Democrats were recklessly risking a shutdown by refusing to talk to the country's chief executive and the man who must sign whatever bills Congress eventually passes. "Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes". I think. We'll see.

Meanwhile, efforts to progress the Republican tax reform plan advanced on Tuesday, as the senate budget committee voted in favour of the Bill, paving the way for a full vote on the Senate floor as early as Thursday.

Top Democrats have canceled a meeting with President Trump after he knocked party leaders. The White House welcomed the vote as "an important step toward passing historic tax relief", predicting agreement by the end of the year. Mr. Trump voiced support for legislation to fund subsidies to health insurers that he had cut off, as well as another bipartisan health care measure that could lower insurance premiums under the Affordable Care Act.
