If there was an invitation to participate, I would consider it, but, you heard me mention the Constitution a few times this morning.

For all the media fawning over the sister of the North Korean dictator, I think it’s important that every American knows who this person is and what she’s done, the sister of Kim Jong Un is a central pillar of the most tyrannical and oppressive regime on the planet, an evil family clique that brutalizes, subjugates, starves and imprisons its 25 million people.
Even the United Nations reported that in their words, the gravity, scale and nature of these violations reveal a state that does not have a parallel in the contemporary world, that’s why the United States government has sanctioned her for her role in [abetting] North Korea's human rights abuses and crimes against humanity.

The President took strong and decisive leadership here to put the safety and the security of the American people first by accepting the recommendation of the deputy attorney general to remove Director Comey as the head of the FBI.
The new deputy attorney general, who was just sworn in two weeks ago and confirmed by the Senate, came to work, he is a man of extraordinary independence and integrity and a reputation in both political parties of great character, came to work, sat down and made the recommendation for the FBI to be able to do its job that it would need new leadership.

There's no question North Korea represents the most dangerous and most immediate threat in the Asia-Pacific and President Trump is determined to confront that threat by marshaling unprecedented cooperation with allies in the region and China and the world, that kind of economic and diplomatic pressure will result we hope in the regime in Pyongyang forfeiting their ambitions, forfeiting their nuclear weapons program and join the family of nations.
The only thing we need to hear from North Korea is that they are ending and ultimately dismantling their nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles program.
The days of broken promises and the days of running out the clock on agreements with the wider world are over.
The point the President was making is that we're ready. We're ready to defend our allies in this region. We want to send an unambiguous message especially to north Korea that any attempt to use weapons of any kind against our allies in this region or American forces abroad will be defeated and will be met with overwhelming force.
For my part, in some odd way, it's encouraging that they're getting the message, my hope is that they'll continue to get the message not just from the United States, here in Japan, and in South Korea, but on an increasing basis from China and countries all over the world committing to a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.
