Calm before storm: Trump leaves everyone guessing on N Korea, Iran move

Letter to the editor     As an avid observer of president Trump

"The president's remarks do, however, strengthen Puerto Rico's hand in negotiations with creditors", the adviser said.

Sophisticated traders of distressed debt know all too well that the president does not have the power to wipe out the island's debt and there is no appetite for a bailout, one investment adviser said.

Could US President Donald Trump just have been "messing" with the press when he shot off the mysterious "calm before the storm" comment?

Sanders said for Trump protecting American people was an extremely serious job.

US President Donald Trump has "tremendous accomplishments on the global stage" and he is "keeping the world from chaos", the White House has claimed. "Maybe it's the calm before the storm". Speaking to a crowd of representatives from over 200 Hispanic businesses, community and faith groups gathered in the East Room of the White House, Trump drew out the vowels in the name of the U.S. territory three times.

After huddling with military leaders to discuss Iran, North Korea and the Islamic State group on Thursday evening, Trump used a photo with military brass and their partners to make an ominous pronouncement.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The US president told the crowd at the event: "We are also praying for the people of Puerto Rico. I think that North Korea, Iran both continue to be bad actors". "Do we have a duty to try and find out what in the world he means, if anything?"

Shortly before his ominous remark Thursday evening, Trump had said, "We can not allow [North Korea's] dictatorship to threaten our nation or allies with unimaginable loss of life", and vowed to "do what we must do to prevent that from happening and it will be done, if necessary".
